Whole Wheat Hamburger Buns

Servings 8

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup warm water
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons rapid rise yeast
  • 1 tablespoon tahini
  • 1 tablespoon date sugar
  • 3-4 cups whole wheat flour

Optional Toppings:

  • aquafaba or 1 tbsp milled flax seeds mixed with 3 tbsp water
  • sesame seeds
  • poppy seeds
  • garlic minced
  • onion minced

Instructions

  • In a large bowl (I use a KitchenAid mixer), combine water, date sugar and yeast. Stir until yeast is dissolved.
  • Let sit 5 minutes.
  • Add tahini and flour, 1 cup at a time, and mix until a smooth dough has formed.
  • Knead for 10 minutes by hand or 5 minutes with a mixer with a dough hook.
  • Cover with a towel and let sit in a warm spot until dough has doubled in size.
  • Punch down and divide into 8 equal pieces.
  • Shape each piece into a flat circle, no more than one inch thick.
  • Place on a non-stick or parchment lined baking sheet and let rise for about 1/2 hour.
  • Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • If using topping(s), brush each bun with aquafaba or flax seed and water mixture.
  • Sprinkle with desired topping(s).
  • Bake 25 - 30 minutes.
