Nutritious and Delicious Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls in Under an Hour!

Fresh from the oven, the 3 balls of dough in each cup have formed a cloverleaf shape.
We are big fans of Red Star Yeast, and we are proud to include samples of their platinum instant yeast with every EZ DOH shipment. So, when we saw the recipe on their website for "45 Minute Herbed Wheat Cloverleaf Rolls", we figured we'd see if we could make a similar recipe using our EZ DOH. We are happy to report that the recipe below turned out great. We even substituted unsweetened macadamia milk into the recipe instead of regular milk, to encourage folks who can't tolerate cow's milk to try similar substitutions in other recipes.


2 and 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
2 packages Red Star Platinum Superior Baking Yeast
1/2 TSP salt
1 and 1/2 TSP of Frontier Co-op Italian Seasoning (use more if you like your herbs!)
1 cup Unsweetened Macadamia Milk (warmed to 125 degrees)
1/4 cup warm tap water
1/4 cup raw honey
1 medium egg (room temperature)
1 cup All-Purpose Flour
4 TBSP butter (melted and cooled)


We placed the whole wheat, yeast, salt, and Italian Seasoning right into the EZ DOH container, and mixed thoroughly with a whisk.
We used a whisk to mix the wet ingredients together in a bowl (milk, water, honey, and egg).
We then added the wet ingredients right into the EZ DOH container and started hand-cranking for 2 minutes. This produced a well-mixed and loose dough.
We added in the cup of All-Purpose flour and the butter, and then thoroughly worked this mixture with 3 solid minutes of hand-cranking.
Now comes the messier part. Sprinkle some flour on a clean counter, and dump the dough out and give it a gentle kneading, adding more flour as needed to keep the dough from sticking too much to your hands. Then cut your ball of dough into 12 equal (roughly) pieces. Then cut those pieces into 3 pieces and roll them into little balls (36 balls).
Get a 12 cup muffin tin and grease it to prevent sticking. Place 3 little balls of dough into each cup of the muffin tin, and then put them in a warm place for 15-20 minutes to rest (and RISE).
Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees, and then bake your rolls for 10-12 minutes when they should be golden brown (and measure 190 degrees on the inside).
These whole wheat rolls have excellent texture!
