Recipe for Whole Wheat Honey Rolls

A recipe for these days of no sugar/no white flour

Whole Wheat Honey Rolls (makes 12 good-sized dinner rolls)
1 package active dry yeast
1 cup warm buttermilk (or 1 cup warm water, add 1/3 cup milk powder later)
1/4 cup oil
3 tablespoons honey
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 to 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in milk. Add the oil, honey, whole wheat flour, salt, and baking soda. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough all-purpose flour to form a soft dough. Knead until smooth. Let rise until double, about 1 hour.
Shape into 12 rolls, let rise on baking sheet about 30 minutes.
Bake at 400F for 12 minutes. Brush with margarine or butter while still warm.

I made a batch of these today and enjoyed one with scrambled eggs for dinner. I know it has a bit of white flour but since I have to make all of my own bread (we can only buy plain white bread at the store. In fact our whole wheat flour has to be imported from Papua New Guinea, across the border!) this is about as close as I can get to eating whole wheat bread.
