12 rolls
5 Min
15 Min


2 2/3 c
whole wheat flour, preferably organic stoneground
1 c
quick-cooking oats (not instant), preferably organic, plus 2 teaspoons
1 tsp
table salt
2 tsp
baking soda
1 1/4 c
2/3 c
1/4 c
peanut oil or other vegetable oil
1/4 c


1Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
2In a bowl, mix the flour, oats, salt and baking soda.
3In another bowl, mix the Guinness, buttermilk, oil and honey. Stir the liquids together with a wooden spoon.
4Add the liquids to the dry ingredients and stir with the wooden spoon to combine. Stir well until the consistency goes from runny to more like a damp sand.
5Pat into small handfuls to form 12 mounds on the lined cookie sheet. Once all mounds are evened out, you can pat each into a rough round roll shape, about 3 inches diameter by 1-1 1/4 inches high.
6Sprinkle the remaining 2 teaspoons of oats over the rolls and put them into the oven for about 15 minutes, or until browned and done. Transfer each roll to a rack to cool just a little bit. Serve and enjoy!
