  1. Place carrots in a saucepan and cover with water; cook until tender. Drain and place in a blender or food processor. Add eggs and 1/2 cup water; puree until smooth. In a large mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in remaining water. Add carrot mixture. Stir in oil, sugar, molasses, salt and 5 cups flour; beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour. Punch dough down.
  3. Shape into 48 balls. Place 2-in. apart on greased baking sheets. Cover and let rise until almost doubled, about 1 hour. Bake at 350 degrees F for 18-20 minutes or until browned.

Great way to use up some carrots. My kids loved these & never suspected they were "healthy". I thought these were a little dry but just slathered w/ butter to eat.

Very moist with a unique flavor, but more of a dinner roll. I had read the reviews that said it was sweet, so I made it as a breakfast bread- it wasn't the best flavor for breakfast.

these rolls are really perfect. they are delicious, and a bit more nutritious than regular rolls. I made a batch and froze them. They were best when eaten within the month. Just take out wha...

I cut this in half and made the buns bigger than called for. I had about 18 total. These were tasty, but I really didn't taste the carrot flavor. I think this is a good way to get kids who are ...

These were very good. A little sweeter than regular buns but still good. I made them into a loaf a bread, pan rolls and in muffin tins. The buns in the muffin tin did not turn out as well, th...

Delicious! My little ones love them as well! I used 3 cups of whole wheat flour & brown sugar for molasses. For a beginner breadmaker, it is quite simple.
