  • 2 ¼ cups hot water
  • 3 Tablespoons butter cubed
  • 2 Tablespoons honey
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons salt
  • 1 ½ cups quick oats
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 3 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 packages instant active yeast 1 ½ Tablespoons
  • Melted butter for tops of baked rolls


  • Combine the hot water, honey, butter, brown sugar and salt in one bowl.
  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, combine together the yeast, oats, whole wheat  flour, and about one cup of white flour.
  • Pour wet ingredients into dry, and mix for 1-2 minutes.
  • Stir in the additional white flour until the dough forms a ball.
  • Knead, by hand or in the mixer using a dough hook, for 5-7 minutes.
  • Let the dough rise for about an hour.
  • Roll into 24 balls (if dough is too sticky, flour your hands and/or add extra flour as needed) and place in a greased 9″x13″ pan. Let rise another 30-45 minutes.
  • Bake 350 degrees for 18-22 minutes, or until golden brown (cover with foil if necessary the last few minutes to prevent over-browning).
  • Brush tops of warm rolls with melted butter immediately. Serve warm with butter.
