Instructions
To Make the Whole Grain Cranberry Vanilla Dinner Rolls:
  1. Place the 2 cups of flour, cranberries, sunflower seeds, oats, flax, and yeast in a large mixing bowl, and stir to combine.
  2. Place the milk, water, butter, and maple syrup in a large liquid measure, and warm in the microwave, in 15 second increments, until the butter is mostly melted and the mixture feels very warm, but not hot.
  3. Add the liquid ingredients into the dry, along with the vanilla and quinoa.  
  4. Stir until the dough forms a ball and pulls away from the sides of the bowl. (Add additional 1/4 cup flour if the dough seems too sticky.)

  5. Knead the dough for 6-8 minutes, then allow it to rest (covered), for 10 minutes.  

  6. Divide the dough into 12 equal portions, rolling each into a ball. 

  7. Place in a lightly greased 8-inch pan, and allow to rise (covered) for 30 minutes.

  8. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F, and bake for 20 minutes or until puffy and golden.  Serve with Whipped Vanilla Bean Maple Butter.
To Make the Whipped Vanilla Bean Maple Butter:
  1. Place the butter, vanilla bean paste, maple syrup, and salt in a small bowl and whip on high speed until pale and fluffy.  
  2. Serve at room temperature.
