Honey Wheat Rolls – Light and fluffy no knead dinner rolls made with whole wheat flour and honey. Easy to make and a great side for holidays meals!
A holiday meal isn’t complete without dinner rolls, right? They are always my favorite part of any meal, especially during the holidays. I really enjoy using leftover turkey and rolls to make sliders the day after for lunch, it’s always such a tasty meal!
These rolls are super easy to make, they are no-knead and ligt and fluffy. I highly suggest putting some butter and honey on them, they are perfect that way! I made these rolls to go with a whole mini Thanksgiving feast complete with turkey and carrots and it was a the perfect way to celebrate the holiday. The only thing that was missing was a bit of Apple Cider Cranberry Sauce, I would have enjoyed to make that again! It’s been way too long since I have had any cranberry sauce.
Notes on honey wheat rolls

- Spray with a bit of cooking spray to help crisp up the top.
- You can sub bread flour for all-purpose four in this recipe, both will work.
Honey Wheat Rolls
Light and fluffy no knead dinner rolls made with whole wheat flour and honey. Easy to make and a great side for holidays meals!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups whole wheat flour

- 1/2 cup water warm
- 1/4 cup honey
- 4 tbsp butter melted
- 1 tbsp yeast
- 1 tbsp brown sugar

In a small mixing bowl, combine warm water, brown sugar, and yeast. Stir and let sit for at least 5 minutes.
In a large mixing bowl, sift together both flours and salt. Create a well in the middle and pour milk, butter, honey, eggs, and yeast mixture. Mix until well combined.
Cover bowl with a light towel and place in warm place to rise about 2 hours or until dough has doubled in size.
Transfer dough to a well floured surface and punch the dough to deflate. Divide dough into 12 equal sections and roll into balls. Transfer to a 9"x13" pan that is greased in 3 rows of 4 balls. Cover pan with plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place for 30 minutes or until rolls double in size.
After dough has risen, bake for 20-22 minutes or until baked through.
