Easy, Soft, No Knead, Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls

Easiest Ever Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls
Delicious, Soft, Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls that are Easy, No Knead, Oil Free and Vegan? And take about 10 minutes total hands-on time? Yup : )

These little Rolls are super tasty, and super easy. You'll love them!

This is my own recipe, but I got the method from Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day - whose work I highly recommend!

(If you'd like to also serve White Dinner Rolls, check out this easy recipe

Here's the method:

Easy Soft, No Knead Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls
 (Makes about 8 rolls)

I prepare a batch this size in an 8 Cup Container.
Be sure to add in this order:

1 1/2 Cups Warm Water
2 1/2 Cups White Whole Wheat Flour
2 Tablespoons Tapioca Starch (you can substitute Cornstarch, if you like)
1/2 Cup Potato Flakes (yes, the kind people make instant Mashed Potatoes with)
1/4 Cup Sugar*
1/2 Tablespoon Yeast
1/2 Tablespoon Salt

Stir well with a spoon till well combined and no floury patches remain.

Dough after stirring

Cover loosely and allow to rise for 2-5 hours on counter.

Dough after initial rise - ready to place in fridge or use.

Place in Fridge till needed, or use right away (ideally, use this within a week)

When you're ready to bake, sprinkle the top of the dough generously with flour.

Divide into 8 pieces and shape into rolls by hand, gently tucking dough into balls (don't squish out all the air - be gentle!)

Shaped Dough, Ready to Rise

Place each roll into an oiled cake pan, or on a baking sheet of your choice. These work great on my perforated, nonstick pizza pan : )

Allow to rise on the counter for 2 hours (no need to cover - this is a very moist dough naturally).

OR cover loosely with plastic wrap and allow to rise overnight in fridge.

Risen Dough, after 2 Hours

Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 35-40 minutes, or till golden brown.

Brush with your favorite buttery spread or oil, if desired.

Serve warm.

In addition to making great Dinner Rolls, these can be used as a bun for your favorite burger or other sandwich filling.

Mmmmm . . . Tasty Whole Wheat, Easy Dinner Rolls

*Sugar in this recipe has 3 functions - It adds flavor, it makes the rolls more tender, and it aids browning. You CAN adjust the amount up or down according to your preferences, and the main difference you'll notice will be a difference in flavor. But it will also slightly affect tenderness and browning.

If I make these too far ahead of a meal, and they become cold, I simply warm them slightly in the microwave, then lightly toast them (without cutting them) in the toaster oven to restore the fresh-baked taste.
