Directions:
Measure bread flour into a bowl. Take whole wheat flour and put into a smaller bowl with dark cocoa, mix together, set aside. In a small bowl mix yeast, 1 Tbsp sugar and 1/2 cup warm water, stir until dissolved, let yeast proof, it will raise and get bubbly, this will take about 5 minutes. In a large bowl put butter (cut into chunks), honey, molasses, salt and warm milk, stir. When butter is soft and almost melted add slightly beaten egg, and yeast mixture stirring well, then add flour mixed with cocoa stirring well, then add additional bread flour until easy enough to handle and turn onto a floured surface and knead dough until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes. Place dough in a greased bowl, turning to grease top. Cover with a damp towel and let rise in a warm place until double, about 1 to 1 hours. Gently, punch dough down and divide in half. Take each part and cut into 8 pieces and shape each into a smooth ball. Place onto a greased cookie sheet, with sides barely touching. Cover with a damp towel and let rise in a warm place until double, about 30 minutes. Combine egg yolk and 1 Tablespoon water and brush onto top of rolls and sprinkle with a little oatmeal before baking. Bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from cookie sheet and cool.
* Recipe will make 16 rolls.
