9 Grain Cracked Cereal and Oatmeal Rolls

We are trying to eat more whole grains and I love the 9 grain cereal for that reason.  So what grains are in it?
Hard red wheat, hard white wheat, barley, rye, oats, corn, millet, hulled buckwheat, and flax seed.

9  Grain Cracked Cereal and Oatmeal Rolls-these rolls have a slightly nutty taste. 
3 cups boiling water
2/3 cup cracked wheat
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup butter
3 tsp salt
6 to 6-1/2 cups unbleached flour (part whole wheat may be used)
4 Tbs yeast


In a large bowl, or the bowl of a stand or bread mixer (such as a KitchenAid or Bosch) - combine cracked wheat, oats, honey, butter, and salt.

Pour boiling water over the top of these ingredients, and pulse a few times. 

Let stand to cool to 120° to 130° - about 15 minutes (the right temperature for yeast to be added)

Add 2 cups flour and the undissolved yeast.

Pulse till combined. 

Add enough additional flour to form a soft dough that pulls away from the sides of the bowl.

Continue kneading/mixing for about 8 to 10 minutes.

Remove from bowl and lightly dust with flour.  Cover and let rest for 10 minutes.

Divide dough into 24 pieces.  I use a kitchen scale to make sure my rolls are the same size. I make my rolls using 2 oz of dough.  Roll each portion of dough into a snake. The flatten slightly. Roll up and place in a greased muffin tin. 
Cover and let stand in a warm place until doubled in size - about 1 hour (depending on the season and the warmth of your kitchen)

Preheat oven to 375°.  Place in center of oven and bake for about 35 to 40 minutes. 

Check during the last 10 minutes of baking. Remove from oven and brush top with butter.

  1. This is unrelated to your post, however it is my successful use of food storage for the week. I substituted pureed garbanzo beans for 1/2 the fat in my cookies. They were yummy.
