Hearty Flax & Einkorn Bread Rolls

Looking for a soft, yet hearty sandwich roll that will work great for a burger too? We know you have been asking. These rolls are made with a mix of ground wheat berries and einkorn flour. We added flax seeds and one spoon of honey for a light sweetness. Hey, now this is a roll you can really feel great about!


  • 1 3/4 cups (300g) of wheat berries
  • 2 cups (240g) of einkorn flour
  • 5 tbsp. of golden flax seeds
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 cup of water, warm
  • 1 tsp. active dry yeast
  1. Dissolve yeast and honey in warm water and let stand for 5 minutes.
  2. Grind flax seeds and wheat berries together in your grain mill.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, mix the salt, einkorn flour, wheat berry flour and ground flax seeds together.
  4. Add water, yeast and honey and knead until the dough is smooth. The dough will be sticky but do not add additional flour.
  5. Let rise in the large mixing bowl, covered with plastic wrap for 60 minutes.
  6. Divide the dough in 8 equal pieces and form rolls by pressing the dough in a circular motion on a clean work surface, using a little flour if needed. If you are using for burgers or want a large roll, make 6 instead of 8 and flatten them considerably. They will pop back up in the oven.
  7. Let rise on an oiled baking sheet covered with a clean linen cloth or plastic wrap for 20 minutes.
  8. Bake at 375F for 15 minutes.

      Hi Cynthia- Unfortunately we have only tested these rolls with our wheatberries. The whole grain flour and all purpose absorb liquids differently so it wouldn’t exactly be 1:1. Since we have not tested it though we cannot give you the exact measurements. Sorry!
