  • 1 cup warm evaporated milk (can also use whole milk if preferred)
  • 1 packette dry active yeast
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup pure cane sugar (can also use granulated sugar)
  • 2 eggs (I used Bob's Red Mill Egg Replacer; follow instructions)
  • 3/4 tsps sea salt
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp dried parsley
  • 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 2 cups Bob's Red Mill Whole Wheat Flour
  • 2 cups Bob's Red Mill Unbleached White All-Purpose Flour

For the Garlic Butter Topping:

  • 1 Tbsp butter, melted
  • 1/4 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp dried parsley


  1. In a bowl of an electric mixer, whisk together warm milk and yeast. ***Make sure that milk is NOT HOT!!*** Let sit for 5-10 minutes until bubbly to ensure that the yeast is activated.

  2. Then, add unsalted butter, pure cane sugar, eggs (OR egg replacer), sea salt, garlic powder, parsley, basil and thyme and mix until well incorporated.

  3. Next, add both flours and mix with a dough hook until smooth, but still slightly sticky. Place in a greased bowl and turn to coat the ball of dough. Finally, cover with plastic wrap or a clean towel and set in a warm place to rise for 60 minutes, until doubled in size.

  4. Place parchment paper in a 9x13" pan and roll dough into 12-14 balls and place in the pan and cover to let rise again for another 30 minutes, until doubled again.

  5. In the meantime, pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Once dough balls have doubled, bake for 22-25 minutes, until medium golden brown.

For the Garlic Butter Topping:

  1. Stir together melted butter, garlic powder and parsley and brush over rolls and enjoy!
