Easy Whole Wheat Rolls

There aren’t too many smells that can completely envelope me and produce a calm to come over me.  Fresh baked bread is one of those magical smells.

It bathes the house in homemade goodness that makes me wanna reach for a slab of butter, some homemade jam, and hunker down for a carb coma.  I don’t always have time to whip up fresh rolls but I’ll probably be doing more often with this recipe for easy whole wheat rolls.

Last year I tried my hand at whole wheat rolls.  It did not end well.  In fact, I had about 2 dozen door stops.  I thought I’d follow the “waste not, want not” motto and give them to neighbors to re-purpose them but that idea was vetoed.  After that unbearable failure I held off on trying to create whole wheat rolls again until a couple months ago.

I realized I was making it too hard.  I already had a dough recipe that I loved for these breakfast pockets.  Everyone in my family loved it actually.  And then I thought, why not use this dough to make rolls?  Best decision I ever made.  It takes under 2 hours to make which means that carb coma is closer than ever.  Just remember to save some for dinner.
