Picture the scene.

I am out working in the office with Kyle. He is our eldest son and at 16 years old is the designer at

He does all those pretty graphics for Pinterest, edits my videos and basically makes us look good from a visual point of view.

He is in his final year of school and will be going to college in September to study graphic design and video editing.

Often on a Saturday it will be me and my boy in the office. I will be writing up blog posts from recipes I have tested, and he will be cracking on with his wonderful design work.

On this particular Saturday, in late February, Dominic called us into the house to test out his latest creation in the bread maker.

The kitchen smelt like how your grandma’s kitchen smelt, with lots of different bread being made.

He had made these delicious whole wheat dinner rolls along with lots of other delicious works of art including my 2 favourites:

I just didn’t know what to eat first, everything just smelt so good. Plus, warm bread when we have such a cold office, was such a welcome change.

The benefit of Dominic being an ex-chef is that he is really fast with the prep work. I can give him some recipe ideas for our kitchen gadgets and then while I am working, he can knock out lots and lots of delicious recipes.

Though it makes us giggle as he turns our kitchen into a production line like it’s a food factory.

But out of these 3 recipes that he did today, my top vote goes to the whole wheat dinner rolls. I mean OMG how can something so simple taste so good!

To cook them he threw all the ingredients into the bread maker for it to prove the whole wheat dinner rolls, then into the air fryer to be cooked.

Though, not quite as healthy when you take into account the grated cheese that Dominic loves.

Alright…. I like cheese too but if I blame Dominic I can pretend to be the healthiest in the family!

These whole wheat dinner rolls cook in just 9 minutes just like our Paleo Pizza Ring and our Gluten Free Dinner Rolls.

This means that while your soup is cooking in your soup maker, your bread can also be cooking.

This means that homemade soup and homemade whole wheat bread rolls can be done together without much effort!

  • Place all of the ingredients apart from the yeast into the bread maker. Then when everything else has been added and mixed, add 200ml of luke warm water, then place the yeast on top.
  • Place the lid down on the bread maker and set to the dough setting.
  • When it beeps remove the dough and using floured hands, make it into 3 large whole wheat dinner rolls.
  • Cook in your baking pan inside the air fryer grill pan for 9 minutes at 180c/360f.
  • Serve while still warm.


I use the air fryer grill pan and then balance a cake pan over it. It’s the perfect size and great for cooking breads and cakes and cookies. You can use a whole wheat bread flour for this, a rustic bread flour or a whole grain bread flour.
We prefer this whole wheat bread flour, but its down to whatever you have available. We made 3 large ones and filled them with grated cheese. Of course, you can fill it with whatever you wish. I also found that for us 3 large ones were perfect, but if you are feeding more people, then make some smaller ones.
