Whole Grain Buns

Jul 10, 2013

Now that I'm back at work I've been trying to get in the habit of making my own bread and buns. Its easy to whip up a quick sandwich in the morning to take for lunch, or bread for toast in the morning. This recipe makes the perfect amount of bread for our little family!

Another bonus to this recipe, you can multitask, which is definitely something every mom needs to learn to do and do well! I usually make it in my Kitchen-Aid stand mixer, dumping in ingredients while making supper, or cleaning, or doing laundry.. just dump and walk away for 15 minutes, come back, repeat. There is no hand-kneading this way either. I just kinda roll it into a big ball when its done mixing and set it in a greased bowl to rise. So easy.
