Whole Wheat Rolls

Adapted from www.food.com by Sarah Woutat
Yield 25 rolls

2 tablespoons yeast
2 cups lukewarm water (105-125 degrees, 16 oz.)
1/4 cup honey (2 oz.)
3/4 cup olive oil (6 oz.)
2 eggs, at room temperature
2 teaspoons salt
5 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups white flour
**You can play with the flour ratios, but you need a total of 7 cups flour. I like 5 to 2.

Dissolve yeast in water and honey for about 5 minutes.
Combine honey, olive oil, eggs, and salt in a large mixing bowl.
Slowly add Flour and knead until it loosens from sides of the bowl.
Place in large oiled bowl, cover and let rise until about double. About one hour, be sure it is in a warm place.
Punch down and remove Dough.
Shape dough into rolls about 2 inch in diameter.
Place on an oiled or non stick baking sheet, cover and let rise for 30 minutes.
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees.
Bake at about 375 degrees for about 20 minutes or until browned.
