12 rolls
1/2 cup warm water (100° to 110°F)
2 (4-1/2 tsp.) envelopes Fleischmann's® Traditional Yeast
3/4 cup milk
2 tablespoons butter OR margarine
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons honey
1 teaspoon salt
1 egg
4 teaspoons wheat gluten
3 to 3-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup bulgur
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats, finely ground in food processor
1/4 cup whole flax seed

Combine yeast and warm water in large mixer bowl; let stand for 5 minutes. Heat milk, butter, oil and honey until warm (100° to 110°F). Add milk mixture, salt, egg, wheat gluten and 1 cup flour to large mixer bowl with yeast; beat with electric mixer on low for 30 seconds. Add 1 cup flour and bulgur; beat on medium-high for 3 minutes.

Stir in oats, flax seed and enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead 6 to 8 minutes on a lightly floured surface, until smooth and elastic. Shape into a ball. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to coat. Cover and let rise in a warm draft-free place until doubled, about 1 to 1-1/2 hours.

Divide dough into 12 equal pieces; shape into ovals or balls. Place on greased baking sheet. Cover; let rise until doubled in size, about 30 to 45 minutes. Make slits in top with a sharp knife. Brush rolls with 1 tablespoon melted butter, if desired.

Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until rolls are golden. Cool on wire rack.

Recipe Note: For best results, knead this dough by hand, instead of using the dough hook on a stand mixer.

Make-ahead Tip: Prepare and shape rolls the day before serving but don't bake; cover and refrigerate. Remove rolls from refrigerator, let rise if they're not already doubled in size, uncover, bake and serve warm.
