Soft Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls

100% whole wheat flour dinner rolls made with whole milk and egg yolks to make them soft and fluffy.

Soft Whole Wheat Dinner Rolls recipe

servings: 12

total time: 2 hours

recipe by: 


  • 1 cup plus 1 TBSP warm whole milk
  • 1 packet ( 2 1/4 tsp) active dry yeast
  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 TBSP plus 1 TBSP olive oil


  1. Add 1 cup of the warm milk to a large mixing bowl, sprinkle the yeast on top and stir to combine. Stir in the flour and salt until well combined.

  2. Stir in the egg yolks and 1 TBSP of the olive oil then knead by hand for about 5 minutes.

  3. Form the dough into a ball then place in a large clean bowl. Drizzle 1 TBSP of olive oil over the dough ball then flip around a few times to cover the dough in oil.

  4. Loosely cover the bowl and set in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.

  5. Line a 9x13 baking dish with parchment paper.

  6. Separate the dough into 12 equal size pieces. Roll the dough pieces into smooth balls and place in the baking dish about 1/2-inch apart.

  7. Brush the tops of the rolls with 1 TBSP of milk then set aside for about 20 minutes to allow the rolls to rise a bit more.

  8. Preheat the oven to 375°F.

  9. Bake the rolls in the preheated oven for 20 minutes.

  10. Take the rolls out of the oven and set aside to cool.
