Recipe by Mavis S.
I found a recipe on the internet and substituted and added different ingredients to make a white hamburger bun recipe 100% whole wheat and healthy. I have been making them for years and my family and friends just love these buns! Never will I buy buns again! As with any bread machine recipe, add flour and/or water as needed. You can add other ingredients such as dried onion flakes, ground flax seed or whatever. Sometimes after cooling I wrap and freeze them and defrost as needed. I hope you will love this recipe as much as I do! Also, this recipe also makes great dinner rolls. Just divide dough into 12 to 24 balls, depending on the size of roll you want.

These buns deserve 10 stars!!!! I just made a batch of them, and they are hands down the most delicious rolls I have ever had in my entire life! I've never had whole wheat buns that were this soft, and the taste is superb. And, if that's not enough, they were a cinch to make. I will NEVER buy burger buns again. Thank you! 5/15/09 I have made these rolls a number of times already. If you don't like the taste of whole wheat, but want the added nutrition, I started making these with Bob's Red Mill White Whole Wheat Flour. No one can believe that they're whole wheat! Everything else I do exactly as the recipe says. They're absolutely amazing!
