Light and Fluffy Oatmeal Sourdough Rolls

These rolls have a wonderful light and fluffy texture. I change the original recipe to be a bit healthier.

Oatmeal Sourdough Rolls

Adapted from, original recipe here.

  • 1 cup sourdough starter
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 4 tablespoons honey (or agave)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons yeast
Mix dough in a bread machine or with a stand mixer. I just put the ingredients in a bowl and used the dough hooks attachment on my hand mixer.
Turn out onto lightly floured surface. Dough will be very soft, you might want to flour your hands and the top of the dough while you press it out. Use a biscuit cutter to cut rolls, place on oiled baking sheet. Cover and let rise for 1 hour or until doubled.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees and bake for 10-12 minutes, until lightly browned.
