Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375ºF (190ºC).

Step 2

In small bowl, dissolve 1 teaspoon (5 mL) of the sugar in warm water. Sprinkle in yeast; let stand for 10 minutes or until frothy.

Step 3

Meanwhile, in large bowl, stir together remaining sugar, boiling water, rolled oats, butter and salt, stirring until sugar is dissolved and butter is melted. Let cool to lukewarm.

Step 4

Stir in yeast mixture and eggs. With electric mixer, beat in 2 cups (500 mL) of the all-purpose flour and whole wheat flour. With wooden spoon, stir in enough of the remaining all-purpose flour to make soft dough.

Step 5

Turn out dough onto lightly floured surface; knead for 8 to 10 minutes or until smooth and elastic, adding enough of the remaining flour as necessary. Place in greased bowl, turning to grease all over. Cover with plastic wrap; let rise in warm draft-free place for about 1 hour or until doubled in bulk.

Step 6

Punch down dough; turn out onto lightly floured surface. Divide into 12 portions. Shape each into ball, stretching and pinching dough underneath to make tops smooth. Place
2 inches (5 cm) apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise for 30 to 45 minutes or until doubled in bulk.

Step 7

Brush rolls with egg; sprinkle with rolled oats. Bake in centre of oven for 30 minutes or until rolls sound hollow when tapped on bottom. Remove from pans; let cool on racks.
