In a large bowl whisk together flour, yeast, garlic granules, herbs, sea salt and nutmeg. In a smaller bowl combine the water, pumpkin, maple syrup and oil. Add the liquid to the dry ingredients. Using a sturdy wood spoon or spatula stir until everything is combined and there are not patches of flour.
Lightly cover with plastic wrap and let it sit on the counter for 2 hours. It will double in size during that time.
To make rolls, flour a surface with whole wheat flour and remove the dough from the bowl (with floured hands). Roll it around in the flour a couple times and form into a smooth ball. Stretch or roll the ball out into a log about 1 foot long. Take a knife and cut the dough into 10 even pieces. Lightly form into balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Mist with olive oil spray and cover with plastic wrap. Let the rolls rest for 60 minutes before baking. 15 minutes before baking pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees. After the dough has rested for 60 minutes, remove the plastic wrap and sprinkle some dried italian seasoning on top of each roll.
Bake the rolls for 20 minutes. Allow the rolls to cool for 10-15 minutes on the baking sheet before eating. Store cooled left over rolls in a sealed container for up to 5 days.
