  • 1 package yeast, 2 1/4 teaspoons
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, preferabbly unbleached
  • 4 tablespoons butter, melted, divided

Instructions

  • In a large bowl, mix yeast, water, and about 1 tablespoon of the honey together. Cover and let sit for 5 minutes to let the yeast activate.

  • Mix in the whole wheat flour until smooth and then use a wooden spoon to mix in the all-purpose flour. Mix until well combined, scrapping the sides of the bowl as needed. Cover with lid or plastic wrap and let it rise for 1 1/2 to 2 hours or until it doubles.

  • Punch down the dough and refrigerate to use later or proceed to roll out.
  • Divide dough in two. Roll one half of the dough into a large circle 1/4 inch thick. Brush with half the melted butter.
  • Use a pizza cutter and slice it into 12 wedges. Roll each wedge up starting at the bottom of the triangle up to the point. Place rolls point side down on baking sheet. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
  • Cover the rolls with a dish towel or plastic wrap and let rise for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F and then bake (one pan at a time) for 8 minutes or until lightly golden.
