Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Rolls

So I made these little beauties, and they turned out perfectly...first try. They are light and chewy and delicious. You really should try 'em.

Whole Wheat Sweet Potato Rolls:
1 Tbsp. active dry yeast
2 Tbsp. honey
1 1/2 cups sweet potato, cooked and pureed
1/2 cup warm water
3 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted
1 tsp. salt
2 eggs, slightly beaten or 2 egg replacers.
3 cups hard white whole wheat flour, plus extra for kneading
4 1/2 tsp. vital wheat gluten

1. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve honey in warm water.
Add the yeast and let stand 10 minutes until foamy.

2. Add sweet potato, oil, salt, and eggs/egg replacer. Stir to mix well.

3. Sift together flour and vital wheat gluten.
Stir in 3 cups of flour mixture until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface.
Knead 2 to 3 minutes, adding just enough flour to prevent sticking.
Do not knead too heavily; when smooth, shape into a ball.

4. Place in an oiled bowl, and turn dough to coat the surface.
Cover, and let raise about 1 hour or longer.

5. Punch down, and allow dough to rest for 2 minutes.
Divide dough and form into 12-15 rolls.
Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet or in a 9x13 pan.
Cover and allow to rise until doubled, about 1 hour.

6. Preheat oven to 375 F. Bake for 15-18 minutes until browned on top.
Serve warm.

Makes 12-15 rolls.

I will have to try these. This may be the only way to get my weird kids to eat sweet potatoes.

I'm supposed to make rolls for our ward party and I think these will be perfect!!

Carla said...

Can these be made without vital wheat gluten. They look so good, but I don't have the gluten. Thanks.

Carla: You can totally try them without the gluten. They may be a little more clumbly but they should still be good.

I made these yesterday (to go along with a sweet potato/corn chowder I was bringing to a family in our ward) and they were so delicious. I didn't have coconut oil, so I just used olive and they really turned out so light and...well, perfect. Fantastic recipe!
I really enjoy your blog as I have been reading it and trying to incorporate many of your health tips into my families diet.

Anonymous: My sister Emily will have to answer that question since she is the one who posted the recipe. I have not made them yet but I hope to try them very soon! I think serving them with anything you like to serve rolls with would be good.

Hey Anonymous...
You can eat these rolls with whatever you wish. We opened the rolls and drizzled a little honey on them and served them with potato soup. I am going to make them for our Christmas Eve Dinner as well...served with the traditional...
mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, 'cheez' ball, cranberry sauce, green salad...etc... you get the picture.

Good Luck!
