Super Quick Whole Wheat Buns

Total Time

These are so quick to throw together. I like to make these when I want a yeast roll but don't have the time to wait for it to rise twice. My mom made these when I was growing up and they were very soft. I loved to make peanut butter sandwiches with them. Store in plastic bag or covered container to keep soft.


  1. Combine water, yeast, oil and sugar or honey; let rest for 15 minutes.
  2. Add salt, egg, and flour to yeast mixture and mix well.
  3. Roll out 3/4 inch thick and cut into 10-12 rounds.
  4. Place rolls on cookie sheet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray.
  5. Bake at 400-425 for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned. Be careful not to overbake or they will be too dry. Every oven is different.

recipe is good --just a slight should read 1 cup warm milk not water.

These are amazing buns. Healthy, tasty, and quick... !! :) They're beautifully light for being completely whole wheat, and probably my favorite recipes for buns.

The husband couldn't decide whether he thought these were like a biscuit or a roll, hence the four stars. (My kids all loved them.) But the recipe was quick and easy, and it provided us with buns for turkey burgers after I forgot buns at the store, so I will be keeping this recipe on hand! Maybe next time I'll throw these in a breadbasket and serve them with butter.
