Making your own dinner rolls at home is SO satisfying, and it’s so much more affordable! I love using Sprouted Spelt flour because it’s a better choice healthwise and sprouted spelt is generally a bit sweeter in flavor compared to whole wheat, which can be bitter and boring. Sprouted grains also have lower glycemic index levels and phytic acid, and increased soluble fiber, protein, antioxidants, and folate, all contributing to a healthy body.
Now that the holidays are upon us, try making your own easy Sprouted Spelt dinner rolls and just sit back for compliments. When choosing Sprouted Spelt flour, I prefer the One Degree Organic products as they are third-party certified Glyphosate Residue Free. You do NOT want to give your family and friends flour that is contaminated with glyphosate! Glyphosate is the probable carcinogen and is the primary active ingredient in Roundup, the
world’s most widely used herbicide. Sadly it’s fairly common to find it in many conventionally grown crops.

Easy Sprouted Spelt Dinner Rolls
You Will Need:
- 1/2 cup warm water
- 2-1/2 teaspoons of yeast
- 3 cups of One Degree Organic Sprouted Spelt Flour
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tablespoon honey
- 3 tablespoons olive oil (good quality)
- 1 cup plant-based milk (can use regular milk too)
Add the warm water to a bowl or bread machine bucket. Add the yeast and let it sit for 10 minutes. If the yeast is not fresh, it won’t get frothy. If your yeast isn’t frothy, then you’re not going to have a great result.
After the yeast has percolated and made a little frothy mess on top of the water, add the flour, salt, honey, and olive oil.
I used my bread machine to knead the dough and let it raise for one hour in a warm place. You may hand knead your dough on a clean, lightly floured surface as well. Just make sure the dough is smooth and slightly elastic and pillowy. If you need to add some more olive oil to keep it soft and moist, go for it.
Break off tiny balls of bread dough and roll between hands until smooth. Place balls of dough on a greased cookie sheet. I used a knife to make a cross on each one.
Bake at 350 degrees for 14 minutes.
Your dinner rolls are hot and ready! They are great with an olive oil spread, jam, avocado or simply dunk in a piping hot bowl of soup! I cover mine with a clean dish towel to keep them warm and moist before dinner is served. Enjoy fresh.
