Whole Wheat Burger Buns

You will never buy whole wheat burger buns again after trying these! 

Whole wheat burger buns made from scratch. Soft yet dense enough to hold up to a burger + toppings without falling apart.

These whole wheat burger buns are soft yet dense enough to hold up to a burger + toppings without falling apart. They are perfect for hamburgers, sliders, sandwiches, or just enjoy them plain as dinner rolls.

The dough is super quick to whip up but these buns they do require two rising times. The first rise is about 1 1/2 – 2 hoursthe second one will take around 40 minutes, or until the buns are doubled in size.

Try to divide the dough into equal pieces so they will all be the same size. It’s really helpful to have a kitchen scale.

Brush the burger buns before baking with an egg wash and sprinkle them with sesame seeds or any other topping you prefer. The egg wash  gives them a beautiful golden brown color.

These buns freeze really well. Make a double batch, it’s always handy to have them in the freezer for a quick meal.
