Homemade Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns
  • 1-1/2 cups warm water
  • 1 tablespoon yeast
  • 1 heaping tablespoon raw honey
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 to 3-1/2 cups whole wheat flour (I like the white whole wheat flour)
  • Butter for brushing tops
  • Sesame seeds (optional)
  1. In a large bowl, whisk together water, yeast and honey. Allow to sit until the yeast gets foamy, about 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Add the oil, salt, and 2 cups of the flour and combine well.
  3. Knead in the remaining flour ½ cup at a time until you have a sticky but firm dough.
  4. Allow dough to rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  5. Divide dough into 6 to 8 pieces, depending on the size you need your buns to be. Form into balls and place on a baking sheet dusted with cornmeal.
  6. Allow to rise until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  7. Brush tops with butter and sprinkle with sesame seeds if desired.
  8. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 18 to 20 minutes, until tops are golden.
  9. Allow to cool for a few minutes before slicing.
  10. Top with a delicious burger with all the fixings!
