            Easy homemade wholegrain buns


My whole family loves bread and I think most Germans do. There exist so many different types of bread that you probably can't count it.

Most people eat buns every morning, with jam or honey. I never did, but I like buns as a side dish to salads or when making burgers.

We never had those plain white buns and I think they have no taste. I prefer wholegrain buns with lots of seeds inside.

When I am away from home for studying, I buy bread not very often and don’t eat it frequently. But sometimes I just crave for some bread and then

I wish I had some at home.




But what I have always in storage is some wholegrain flour, seeds, yeast, water and salt. And that's actually everything you need for my super simple but yet delicious whole grain buns!

And as they are small they don't need very long in the oven. You can even speed up the whole procedure by using dry yeast so you don't need to let the dough sit.

And they are delicious! The whole family approved!

So it doesn't matter if you eat them for breakfast with jam, with your soup or salad, whether you make some burger with them or simply eat them with some avocado, they are always a great choice when it comes to bread buns! And of course they are healthy and only good for you!


Easy homemade wholegrain buns

(makes 10)




500g spelt wholegrain flour

1 cup mixed seeds (sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, flax seeds)

1 cup water

1 pack dry yeast

1 tbsp olive oil




1. Mix all ingredients together and knead until you get a nice dough.

2. Now start forming little round buns. Cover your hands with flour so that the dough doesn't stick to them. If the dough is to sticky, add more flour.

3. Place the buns on a baking sheet, sprinkle with some more seeds and bake them in the preheated oven at 180 degrees for approximately 30 minutes.

4. Enjoy warm or cold!
