Course: Bread
Cuisine: American
Servings: 18 rolls

  • 2 ¼ teaspoon active dry yeast
  • 3 tablespoon warm water
  • 1 cup almond milk (or any nondairy milk, warm)
  • 3 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoon vegan butter
  • 2 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flax meal (whisked with 3 tablespoon of water to make a "flax egg")
  • 2 cups bread flour
  • 1 ½ cups white whole wheat flour


  • Mix together the yeast and water and let it stand in a warm place for five minutes until the yeast starts to multiply.
  • Add to the yeast the nondairy milk, oil, shortening, sugar, flaxmeal mixture, and mix till well blended.
  • Add the bread flour and white whole wheat flour.
  • Knead until well integrated and dough forms in a smooth ball, about 10 minutes on low speed in a stand mixer, or by hand. The dough will be slightly moist but not sticky.
  • Now place in an oiled bowl, turning once to coat with oil. Cover with a kitchen napkin and set aside to rise about 1 ½ hours.
  • Punch down the dough, then divide it into 18 pieces. Roll each into a ball and place on a greased baking sheet, about 2 inches apart.
  • Brush the rolls with some olive oil and let them sit in a warm place for about 1 hour until they are approximately double in size.
  • Make a wash with 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon soy milk. Brush the tops of the pompoms with this wash: it will give them a beautiful golden-brown color when they are baked.
  • Bake in a preheated 425-degree oven for about 15 minutes, until the crust is golden-brown. Eat warm. To reheat, put in a 350-degree oven for about 3 minutes (I usually preheat them directly on the rack, but be careful as ignoring them for just a little longer might burn the bottom!).
  • Enjoy!
