8 Grain Rolls

2 1/2 cups rolled grain (I use a combination of oat, spelt, rye, barley and quinoa)
2 tablespoons yeast
3 cups of water
1/4 cup molasses
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter, melted
5-6 cups of flour (I use a combination of whole spelt, whole wheat and unbleached white flour)
1 tablespoon salt

Pour 1 1/2 cup of boiling water over the rolled grains. Cover and let them sit 5 minutes. Take off cover, stir and let cool to room temperature or luke-warm. Put aside. In a mixing bowl add yeast, 1 1/2 cup of warm water, molasses, brown sugar and melted butter. Let sit a couple minutes. Add the rolled grain mixture, the 5-6 cups of flour and the salt. Knead with a mixer on low spead for 8 minutes or by hand for 12 minutes. Roll into balls and place into a pan or form into one or two loaves. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes if cooking rolls or 25 - 30 minutes if making loaves. Enjoy!
