This recipe turns out great homemade rolls for those who love 100% whole wheat bread. They rose beautifully and plump in the oven. Makes 20-25 rolls depending on how big you make them. I made 2 inch dough balls and they rose to 3 inches after baked. To make more rolls just make the dough balls smaller.

Simple and delicious. Following a suggestion below I made mine as cloverleaf dinner rolls and they were perfect. Great recipe. I did use whole wheat pastry flour and substituted 2 T ground flaxseed plus 6 T water for the eggs. Still worked beautifully.

This is an excellent recipe! I loved how light and fluffy they were. I cut the recipe in half, and made 12 good sized rolls. The only thing I didn't cut in half was the honey, because I like my rolls a little sweeter. I was a bit worried, because they didn't rise very quickly, but they turned out fabulously in the end. Yummy!
