Serves | Prep Time | Cook Time


1 cup water
2 Tablespoons canola oil
1 egg
3-1/4 cups whole wheat flour
1/4 cup vital wheat gluten
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon instant yeast or active dry yeast (I use active dry yeast most of the time)

Place all ingredients in your bread machine. Select ‘dough’ cycle. Allow cycle to run.

Dump out onto lightly floured surface.

Divide into 8 pieces.

Shape each piece into a hot dog or hamburger bun.

Place on greased cookie sheets (or bun pans), cover; let rise 30 to 40 minutes.

Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 12 to 15 minutes until golden.

Cool on wire racks.

I found this recipe on the internet which I had to substitute and add some ingredients to make this recipe 100% whole wheat. This is a great recipe because it has all good things in it and no preservatives plus the dough is made in the bread machine. My family and friends cannot believe how soft and delicious these buns are. You can also add different ingredients to this dough such as dried diced onions, etc.

THANK YOU for this recipe. I tried these rolls and after years of baking I finally got a recipe that is good (gluten, who knew!). My family loved them, we tried them in Tortas and I think now these rolls will be a family tradition.

Thanks for commenting on my last recipe (video)! I love this idea of fresh whole wheat buns. I can't tell you how many times we go to the grocery store and there's nothing but white and what seems like day old bread. Can't wait to try your recipe! I think it will go over big this summer.
