Whole grain lunch rolls

Sweet Thursday to you all,

Today is lunch on the menu. I like to improvise when I bake and this time it became whole grain rolls with sunflower seeds. I had a friend over for lunch, so I served them warm with my home made apple jam, brown cheese and cottage cheese. These rolls are perfect to freeze down and defrost for a later occasion or to serve together with this falls carrot soup (recipe tomorrow). Here we go!



  • 2 dl oat
  • 3 dl whole grain flour
  • 1 dl oats barley
  • A big handful of sunflower seeds
  • One pack dry yeast
  • 2 dl water
  • A pinch of salt

These rolls are so easy to vary, use whatever flour you have; white flour, barley, spelt, almond flour, wheat bran ect. You can also add in nuts; walnuts, hazelnuts, almonds, cashews, pine nuts. Or even more seeds; sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds, chia seeds or . For a new taste try pomegranate seeds or raisins, or even both (so good)! There are really no limits for what you can add into this dough. Use your imagination!


1. Mix all the dry ingredients including the yeast


IMAG04572. Pour in room temperature water (if the water is too hot it will kill the yeast, so you want to be accurate about the temperature)

IMAG04593. Add a pinch of salt and mix all the ingredients well. Knead the dough firmly and let rise under a kitchen cloth at a warm place for 30 min

IMAG04624. After 30 min make small rolls and place them on a non sticky baking tray and let rise for another 30 min. Preheat the oven at 200 degrees celsius


Mine didn’t rise that much as I managed to place them downstairs, where it is hot, but I placed them on top of the freezer! The coldest spot of all n our warmest room. Arg! But they still tasted good.

5. Bake the lunch rolls for about 10-15 minutes in the oven and serve warm with some yummy topping and spreads. Some tips are apple jam, cottage cheese, brown cheese, regular cheese with cucumber, philadelphia cream or avocado. Be creative and find your own mix of topping!


Straight from the oven, warm and fresh




Invite a friend over and enjoy the lunch together!
