Hearty Flaxseed Rolls

Hearty Flaxseed Rolls

Makes 1 pound loaf/8 rolls


3/4 cup warm water

4 tsp olive oil

3 tsp granulated sugar

1 tsp salt

2 cups bread flour

1/4 cup flaxseed meal

1 tsp Bread Machine or Quick Rise yeast


Measure the ingredients into the pan of your bread machine in the order listed.  Select the dough setting of your machine.  Start the machine. When the dough is ready, oil your hands and form the dough into eight balls.  Place them in an 8" round greased baking pan.  Spray a piece of plastic wrap with cooking spray and cover the pan.  Place the pan in a warm place to rise for about 30 minutes or until the rolls have doubled in size.  They'll be touching each other.  

Bake the rolls is a pre-heated 350-degree oven for 15-20 minutes, until the rolls are browned and crusty.  Remove the pan from the oven and brush the tops of the rolls with melted butter for a soft and shiny crust.  Cool in the pan for 10 minutes and then turn the rolls out onto a rack to completely cool.
