Recipe: Sourdough Honey Oat Rolls

I did a series on sourdough last year (see Sourdough Series Part 1). If you weren't ready at that time to start sourdough, maybe now you are. It's a new year, and sourdough is very easy! Go back and read it over, and soon you can make these rolls. They are the best rolls because they are very soft and chewy on the inside. It's just a bonus that they're also very healthy!

1 c. sourdough starter
3 c. whole wheat flour
½ c. water
¾ c. oats
¼ c. butter, melted
¼ c. honey
1 egg
1 tsp. salt
½ tsp. baking soda

Grind enough flour for 3 cups plus extra for kneading.

In a large bowl, mix the sourdough starter, flour, and water. Cover the bowl with a damp towel and let it rise for 4 hours.

Stir in the oats, melted butter, honey, eggs, salt, and baking powder.

Pour the dough onto a floured surface and knead just a couple of times. Add in a little more flour only if necessary to make a smooth, cohesive dough.

Divide the dough into 12 rolls. Place them on a greased baking sheet, cover with a damp towel, and let them rise for 1 more hour.

Preheat the oven to 350° F. Brush the rolls with extra melted butter and sprinkle with extra oats, if desired.

Bake for 22 to 25 minutes, until golden brown.

Serve immediately or freeze for later.
