I have been making our bread in my bread maker for the past 2 years now. It is an amazing invention that still to this day makes me smile with amazement when I think about how it turns my simple ingredients into a loaf of beautiful bread. I wouldn’t be without it.
Even though we have home made bread every week, there is still nothing quite like the taste of bread that has been made by hand and baked in the oven and a home made roll (in my opinion) is even better! Do you remember making bread rolls at school? The taste was like nothing else.
These Clean Eating Sandwich Rolls are sugar free and contain only 4 ingredients. In the winter it takes a little longer for the bread dough to rise, up to two hours but in the summer these can rise in 40 minutes – 1 hour. Make up a batch or two on a quiet day and freeze them for the week ahead.

Clean Eating Sandwich Rolls
- Yield: 10
- Ready In:
These Clean Eating Sandwich Rolls contain only 4 ingredients and no added sugar. Perfect for filling and munching at lunchtimes.
- 1 teaspoon Quick Yeast
- 500 grams Strong Wholemeal Bread Flour (plus extra for dusting)
- 1 teaspoon Sea Salt
- 380 ml Water
- Place the ingredients into the bowl of a stand mixer in the order listed above. Alternatively, you can place them into a large mixing bowl and combine with a wooden spoon.
- Place the bowl in the stand mixer with the dough hook attachment and knead for 10 minutes on low. Alternatively, knead by hand for 10 - 15 minutes (add extra flour as necessary).
- After the dough has been kneaded, place it into a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a tea towel.
- Leave in a warm place if possible for 2 hours in the winter or up to 1 hour in the summer until the dough has risen by half.
- After the dough has risen, turn it out onto a floured work surface and knead by hand for 10 minutes. Add extra flour whenever it gets too sticky.
- Divide the dough into 10 equal balls and place evenly spaced (1-2cm apart) on a lightly oiled and floured baking sheet.
- Give the dough balls a little pat down and shape into rolls. Dust the tops with a sprinkle of flour and cover with a tea towel for another 45 minutes in the winter or 20 minutes in the summer.
- Meanwhile, you can preheat your oven to 200°C.
- Once the rolls have filled in the spaces and are just touching each other, take off the tea towel and pop the rolls in the oven for 15 - 20 minutes.
- Once the rolls are cooked and golden brown remove them from the oven and allow them to cool on a wire rack.
- Once cooled, cover the rolls to keep fresh for a few days, or freeze them ready to use another day.
