Yield: 12 rolls
For the dough:
- 1 cup milk, warmed to 95°F
- 1 package (2¼ tsp, ¼oz, 7g) RED STAR Active Dry Yeast
- 2 Tbsp honey
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 2 Tbsp melted butter
- ½ tsp salt
- 2⅔ cups stone ground whole wheat pastry flour
For the toppings:
- 1 Tbsp melted butter
- 1 tsp garlic salt
- Start by warming the milk in a microwave-safe cup. Add yeast to the milk, stir once or twice and then let sit for 5-10 minutes until it is foamy.
- Pour yeast mixture into a large mixing bowl and add in the honey, sugar, melted butter and salt stir with a wooden spoon until combined.
- Next add whole wheat pastry flour. Stir until the dough comes together. It will be a slightly wet and sticky dough.
- Divide dough into 12 equal-sized pieces. Form them into balls.
- Line a slow cooker (that is large enough to hold 12 rolls) with parchment paper and spray lightly with cooking spray.
- Place the dough balls in the slow cooker, on top of parchment paper. Put a big piece of paper towel under the lid (important step, you don’t want the condensation dripping onto your dough) and cover the slow cooker.
- Turn on high and cook for 90 minutes. Check for doneness - the middle ones should be cooked through on the bottom and the outside ones should be slightly browned.
- Lift the parchment paper out of the slow cooker and transfer to a baking sheet. Bake rolls under the broiler in your oven (or oven at 500°F) for 2 minutes.
- Brush with butter and sprinkle with garlic salt and sea salt. Serve warm.
