Super Fast Whole Wheat Rolls & enLiven yogurt

I didn't believe this recipe... 100% whole wheat yeast rolls, without any rise time... seriously?? These things are going to taste like hockey pucks...

Luckily for me (and John) these rolls did NOT taste like rocks! They have a very mild flavor that is for sure, not the same yeasty goodness of a slow rise roll. But I must admit... for the time required to make them, this recipe is going to stick around for sure.

It was a lazy Sunday afternoon when I realized I forgot to pick up rolls for the workweek. I was lazy... and there wasn't enough time for a couple hours of rise time... so a quick search found this recipe for quick yeasted whole wheat rolls. I figured... if nothing else John would just have to buy lunch Monday :D lucky for us both, he got tasty rolls instead.

I wont lie, the next day they aren't as great, but a trip in the toaster fixes that problem right up!

I also wanted to tell you guys about a new yogurt I got to try. Full disclosure: the company sent me a box of 4 yogurts to try and blog about. It's called enLiven, here's a little about it "Today, a new low-cost, all-natural yogurt branded as enLiven launches exclusively in Walmart stores. The low-fat yogurt from Ganeden, the nation’s leading distributor of over-the-counter probiotic products, is available in four delicious flavors and features GanedenBC30 probiotics."

I love yogurt as a snack and eat it most days. I'm always up for a new flavor or brand to try. The texture was spot on, not too thin, not too thick, and you could tell they used real strawberries (no unnatural red dyes here) actually I was interested to see they use beet juice to help keep the strawberries red! That's pretty fun if you ask me. I don't normally find myself in Walmart, but if I was I'd grab a box of these and know it was going to taste great :)

Haha no, just catching up now! Those rolls sound fantastic; I'll definitely have to try them since super fluffy rolls continue to elude me. :-P
