How to Make Irish Oaten Rolls


  • 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!
