...and water as described below and I couldn't detect any difference at all. Here is the new and improved Vegan Best Ever 100% Whole Wheat Rolls recipe!
4 (.25 ounce) packages active dry yeast
3 1/2 cups warm water (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
1 cup agave nectar (refined sugar substitute)
2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted and cooled (butter substitute)
2 tablespoons flax seeds plus 6 tablespoons water, blended until smooth in blender (egg substitute)
10 cups or more whole wheat flour (as finely ground as possible. If you don't have a wheat grinder, try putting your store-bought wheat flour in a blender, a cup at a time, until it is powdery.)
Step 1: I first dissolved the yeast in the warm water and let it sit for about ten minutes. If you're not sure how warm warm is, click HERE.
Step 2: I then added to the yeast mixture the agave nectar, salt, coconut oil, flax seed and water mixture, and 5 cups of the flour. I stirred this until it was mixed well.
Step 3: Next, I stirred in the remaining flour, one cup at a time, until the dough was soft and pulled away from the bowl. In the original recipe, I dumped it out onto my floured counter and kneaded it for ten miinutes. If you're not sure how to knead, here is a video I
Step 4: I then put the ball of dough in a large, greased bowl, covered it with a damp towel, and set it in a warm place to rise in until it was doubled in bulk. (For more on how to find the perfect warm place to raise your bread, click HERE.) This could take anywhere from one to two hours.
Step 5: I punched down the dough, kneaded it for one minute to get the air bubbles out, then tore it in half, then tore each of those halves in half until I had 16 balls of dough. Then I tore each of these pieces into three pieces, rolled them up into neat balls, placed them on four cookies sheets (12 on each one), brushed the tops with melted butter, and let them rise, covered with damp towels, until doubled in bulk. (You should have had 48 balls of dough.)
Step 6: At some point in the rising process, I preheated my oven to 400 degrees, then baked them for about 12 minutes. They should be light golden brown.
Here's what the original rolls looked like...
Yeah I know, kind of plain, but it was easy...and delicious! If you would like your rolls to look fancier, like this...
