This is a great recipe I got from 3ABN television. It is a little different, as the recipe uses oatmeal and flax seed. I know you will enjoy! Prep time includes rising time. For a demonstration on how to make these tasty buns, go here:

Wow! These are great. Mine turned out heavy too, but that's normal when using whole wheat. I substituted 2 cups of Brown Rice Flour and they taste real good. My husband said to me that the Bison Burgers I made with these Buns were the best he has ever had.

Quite good, though a little heavy, which is not altogether surprising for whole wheat. Still, they stood up to gooey wet toppings without falling apart, and they tasted good so I would make them again. I didn't need the full amount of flour.

I found these buns very very heavy. I ended up throwing most of them out. I was disappointed as all the other reviews rated them so highly I was so looking forward to them.
