Mix yeast, sugar and 1/2 cup warmed milk together. Cover with a towel and set aside to let the yeast work.
Combine flour and all dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix well.
Combine the wet ingredients (except yeast mixture) in another small bowl.
When the flours are combined, make a well and begin to fold in the wet ingredients, until 2/3 of the flour is combined with it. Add the yeast mixture, and knead the dough.
Roll into a ball shape and place each roll in the greased 9" pan. They may be sticky so dust your hands with flour or cornmeal to unstick them.
Sprinkle the tops with some more flax seeds and some melted butter.
Let the rolls rise for about 40–45 minutes; they should double in size. Bake at 350° F for about 20-25 minutes.
