Whole Wheat Oat Rolls

Yeast is a single-cell airborne fungi which may be activated to divide the sugars in grain flours. This causes a release of carbon dioxide. Bubbles are formed and are held in place by the gluten in the flour. Yeast will keep for up to 1 year in the refrigerator. There are many types of yeast. You can order SAF-instant yeast and use it in any place which calls for active dry yeast. This yeast may be ordered from www.KingArthurFlour.com.
