"I've tried to make a low calorie homemade bread for years. When they came out with thin buns, it inspired this recipe. One sandwich bun is 1 Weight Watcher point. TIPS: You'll need a 4" biscuit or cookie cutter for these to be consistent. The vital wheat gluten improves the texture and rise, but you don't have to use it. Just add 2 more tablespoons of flour if you omit it. And white flour will work just fine if you don't want whole wheat. Just add more flour in place of the extra bran called for in the recipe. Of course, the nutritional info will be different. Enjoy! Kathie"

"So simple to make and they turned out absolutely perfect! I will never buy Sandwich Thins at the store again- this is easy and cheap! Thanks for the great recipe!"
"We have been enjoying the new sandwich thins in the grocery stores, but I enjoy making home made bread and this was the first recipe that I found that was easy and tastes great! Thanks for sharing!"
"These are easy to make and taste fantastic! I only had baker's bran but already ordered oat fiber to try again. I used the first 15 minutes of my bread machine's dough cycle to get the first ingredients mixed, then removed for 35 minutes, added back into bread machine pan, added the rest of the flour, mixed 8 minutes, then removed to rise as instructed. Perfect dough to work with, lovely little different buns, great for egg breakfast sandwiches, I think! EDIT: I ordered oat fiber and made these again immediately. We all PREFER the original recipe, including my 6 and 4 year olds. who are not at all picky but very selective. I will probably be the only one to eat the oat ones so that they are not wasted. My daughter requests these for her lunch box sandwich everyday now! We will keep this recipe (the original post) and repeat many times.....thanks again!"
"Great thin buns! I used white WW flour and oat fiber as suggested. They turned out great and DH has been devouring them. Easy to do and will make these many times again. Worked great for our fish sandwich which DH loved also."
