Flaxseed Dinner Rolls


I love dinner rolls and keep finding new recipes to make. You can have them with other dishes like pasta or if you are like me, you can have them with a slather of butter anytime of the day. These rolls taste wonderful with the flavour of herbs coming through as also the nutty flaxseed and the slight crunch of bran.

Recipe adapted from here

Makes 8 rolls


1 1/2 cup All purpose flour

1 tbsp Wheat bran

1 tbsp Flaxseeds, ground

2 tbsp Dried mixed herbs

1 1/2 tsp Instant yeast

1 1/2 tsp Sugar

2 tbsp Olive Oil

1/4 tsp Salt

1/2 cup Warm water


  • Mix the flour, bran, flaxseed, herbs, sugar and yeast
  • Add Olive oil, salt and warm water and knead to form a smooth dough
  • Set aside for 1 hour or till the dough doubles in volume
  • Take out the dough and roll it into a 1″ thick circle
  • Cut it into 8 wedges
  • Roll each wedge from the broader side ro form a crsescent like roll
  • Grease a baking tray and keep the rolls on it dor 20-25 minutes
  • Preheat the oven to 185C
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes or till the drop turns golden brown
  • Serve warm
  • Enjoy!
