Good Earth Rolls

1/2 cup very warm water
2 envelopes or 2 T active dry yeast
1 teaspoon honey
1 1/2 cups very hot water
1/3 to 1/2 cup honey
1/4 cup canola oil or melted butter
2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
2 cups whole wheat pastry flour or white flour
2 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/3 cup sunflower seeds

Preparing the dough:
Blend the 1/2 cup warm, but not hot, water in a 2-cup glass measuring cup with the yeast and honey. Let stand until it bubbles up, 5 to 10 minutes. If yeast mixture starts to bubble over the top before you are ready to use it, stir it down. If it hasn't bubbled when you are ready, check to make sure your yeast is still good.

Blend in mixing bowl 1 1/2 cups hot water with honey and oil and salt. Add 1 1/4 cup pastry flour and the yeast mixture; stir vigorously for about 3 minutes. Mix and knead in remaining flour as needed to prevent sticking while kneading about 10 minutes. Add sunflower seeds while kneading.

Place dough in bowl, lightly grease top, cover, let rise until double, about 1 hour. Punch down. Divide into 12 rolls. Place rolls in warm place 15-20 minutes. Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Brush rolls with melted butter after baking.
