If you need a “go to” whole wheat roll that is perfectly soft and flavorful, this is the one to try. We love using these for sandwiches, as a side item, or to stick in the freezer.


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


  1. Add ingredients to your bread machine and run on the dough cycle.
  2. Roll dough into balls (a little bigger than the size of a golf ball) and place on a greased baking pan.
  3. Bake at 350 for 17-19 minutes.
