THE BEST Wheat Rolls: A Bread Machine Recipe

bread machine wheat rolls

These wheat rolls are THE BEST.

When they are fresh out of the oven with a little butter, I can hardly stop myself. Both my husband and toddler agree- they both scarf them down too. I have found that these also freeze well so we almost always have a stash ready to go with soups or to make ham and cheese sliders or meatball subs. What I especially love about these rolls is how easy it is to make them. Simply dump the ingredients into your bread machine, let it run on the dough setting, and then just bake them!

Bread Machine Wheat Rolls


  • 1 1/3 cup water
  • 1 stick of butter
  • 5 Tbls sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 C ground flax seed  (Why eat flaxseed?)
  • 2 C regular flour
  • 1 1/2 C bread flour
  • 1 C whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 C powdered milk
  • 3 Tsp dry active yeast


Add ingredients to your bread machine and run on the dough cycle.

Roll dough into balls (a little bigger than the size of a golf ball) and place on a greased baking pan.

Bake at 350 for 17-19 minutes.

(Makes around 25 rolls)

    Have you ever frozen these rolls? Baked or in dough form?

    Made these tonight for sliders….they were wonderful. Freezing the rest, and almost can’t wait to make them again. Have you ever frozen the dough before baking?

      Awesome! We’ve only tried freezing after baking, but should work to freeze before. Just thaw in fridge and let rise on counter.
