Oatmeal Dinner Rolls

    1 cup Oats
    2 cups Water
    2 cups Whole Wheat Flour
    ⅓ cup warm Water
    ⅓ cup Brown Sugar, packed in
    1 tbsp Sugar
    3 tbsp Butter
    2 tbsp Flax Seed, ground
    2 tbsp Gluten Flour
    1 tbsp All Purpose Flour
    1 tbsp Active Dry yeast
    1½ tsp Salt

    First you need to make the oatmeal, so take a pan, add the water and
    bring to a boil. When the water is boiling add the oats and the butter
    and slow cook until the oats are done. Maybe about 5-7 minutes.

    Stir well so the oatmeal doesn’t form lumps. When the oats are cooked,
    take it off the fire and set aside to cool.

    Next take a mixing bowl and add the warm water to it. Dissolve the
    yeast in this water and add the cooled oatmeal to this. Along with this
    also add the remaining ingredients. The all-purpose flour can be added
    slowly as needed for the dough.

    You can then place the whole thing on a lightly floured flat surface and
    knead until the dough becomes elasticky. You might need to do this for
    between 6-8 minutes to reach the desired consistency.

    Next you will need to grease a bowl and place the ball of dough inside.
    Cover the bowl and place it in a warm place for about 1 hour or until the
    dough has become twice its size.

    You will then need to take it out of the bowl and punch it down. Leave
    the dough for another 10 minutes. You will then need to grease your
    baking trays. Break off pieces of dough and shape into about 18 balls.

    Place these on your greased baking trays. Cover and again leave it to
    rise for about 45 minutes.

    Preheat your oven to 350oF. Then place the baking trays in the oven and
    bake the rolls for about 20-25 minutes until the rolls turn a golden brown

    Take the rolls out of the oven when done and place on wire racks to cool.
    You also have the option of making oatmeal bread instead of rolls.
