No-knead overnight rolls | with carrots and sunflower seeds

Do you want to make bread, without really having to put in the effort? Well, then you’ve come to the right place!

This no-knead bread is your personal sims-styled cheat code to easy and effortless bread. These buns or rolls if you’d like are;

  • mixed in a large bowl with a wooden spoon – so no special equipment or kneading needed (goodbye to dough under your fingernails)
  • require 2 minutes of semi-active effort (I’ve made them before bed, half-asleep)
  • are a little crunchy on the outside, but super moist on the inside.
  • did I mention effort-less?

In my YouTube video, I showed you my “base recipe” for my no-knead bread as well as my 3 favorite variations. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at the carrot/sunflower combination.

Feel free to experiment and make the recipe your own 💛

A little note about yeast

In my recipe, I’m using fresh yeast as it is the most common in Denmark and I feel most comfortable using this. If you want to use dry yeast or instant yeast, then go ahead and do so! Just make sure to use the right amount and follow the instructions on the packaging. Here, you’ll find a yeast conversation table, but google is your best friend.

No-knead overnight rolls with carrots and sunflower seeds (Danish “gulerodsboller”)

Milena Stijović
Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 18 hours
Total Time 18 hours 5 minutes
Servings 10 rolls


  • 12-15 g fresh yeast
  • 1/2 liter water
  • 50-100 g sunflower seeds
  • 2-3 carrots
  • 2-3 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1-2 tbsp honey or sugar
  • 2 dl old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 2 dl whole wheat flour
  • 4-5 dl all purpose flour
  • 2 tsp salt


  • In a large bowl, crumble the fresh yeast and pour in the cold water. Let it sit for a couple of minutes until the yeast has dissolved.
  • In the meanwhile, peel and grate the carrots.
  • When the yeast has dissolved, add carrots, sunflower seeds, honey, oil, oats and the whole wheat flour to the mixture and give it all a good stir with a wooden spoon.
  • Add 2 dl of all purpose flour as well as the salt and give it a good stir. From here, you’re going to add more all purpose flour a little bit at a time, until you’ve reached the right consistency. You’ll want it to be firm and hard to mix, kind of like a very thick oatmeal.
  • Cover bowl tightly with plastic wrap and let it rise overnight.

Next Day

  • Preheat the oven at about 200-220° and put some parchment paper on your baking sheet.
  • Take two spoons and use these to make random bun shapes.
  • Bake the buns for around 6 minutes, before turning the heat down to about 180°. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until the buns are golden and crisp on the outside, but fluffy on the inside.
  • If you are unsure, you can remove one roll and tap underneath. If there is a hollow sound it means it is baked. 
  • Let them sit for a while, before eating. Enjoy right away or freeze down for future use 🙂
