  • 1 cup plus 2 tablespoons warm water
  • cup ⅓ olive oil
  • 2 tbsp active dry yeast
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar
  • teaspoon ½ salt
  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups ½ flour I used white whole wheat


  • Preheat oven to 400F. Combine the warm water, oil, yeast, and sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer, and allow the mixture to rest for about 15 minutes (see note)
  • Once the 15 minutes is up, and the yeast is frothy, add in the honey, 2 cups of the flour, along with the salt, and the egg. Combine with a dough hook attachment
  • Add in the remaining flour ½ a cup at a time. Combine well
  • Shape the dough into 12 balls and pop onto a lined baking tray. Let dough rest for 20 minutes
  • Bake for 10 minutes or until tops are just golden brown. Serve and enjoy


If you don't have a stand mixer, you can do this by hand, it will just take a lot longer
