I kind of have a bread addiction (in addition to my coffee addiction), so therefore I like to bake bread. These Vegan Oatmeal Sandwich Rolls are based on my Vegan Oatmeal Sandwich Bread – I have just turned them into rolls. When you bake them, the oven temperature will be higher and the baking time will be shorter.
I love using in oatmeal in my breads, because it adds texture, fiber, and moisture.
Vegan Oatmeal Sandwich Rolls
What you need (for about 12 rolls):
- 2 Cups of Warm Water
- 1/3 Cup Vegetable Oil (I used Canola Oil)
- 2 Tbsp (2 packages) Dry Yeast (I used Instant/Bread Machine Yeast)
- 4 Tbsp Sugar ( helps the bread rise)
- 1 Teaspoon Salt
- 1 Cup of Oats (Rolled)
- 4 1/2 Cup Flour (Start with 4 1/2 Cups and if dough is too sticky add a little more as needed)
What to do:
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Add warm Water, Yeast, Sugar and Oil to a large bowl. Mix well and let rest for 10-15 minutes, until foamy.
- Add Salt.
- Add the Oats
- Stir your Flour with a fork or whisk (to loosen it up), then measure the flour. Add one cup at a time, mixing dough well. After adding the 4 1/2 cups of Flour your dough should still be very sticky, but not sticking to the bowl. At this point I kneaded the dough by hand for a few minutes and added a touch more flour.
- Grease or line a cookie sheet.
- Shape dough in to a round loaf/cylinder and cut in to 12 pieces (I cut the dough in half, and then in half etc.). With floured hands, roll each piece in to a ball, tucking the creases of dough on the bottom of the roll. Dip the roll in some flour and place on to cookie sheet. At this point, I patted down the rolls lightly, since the rolls will rise again.
- Cover with clean kitchen towel and let rise for about 25 minutes.
- Bake at 375 degrees for about 12-15 minutes, until they are a nice golden brown.
- Let cool on wire rack.
I love how these rolls turned out! I hope you do too.
Keep in mind that there are no preservatives in this bread, so therefore these rolls will taste best if consumed within 3 days. If you are a small household – just throw half the batch in the freezer!
