DIRECTIONS

  • Dissolve the yeast in 1 cup water.
  • Add the oats and whole wheat flour and mix.
  • Add ½ cup of the remaining water.
  • Add white flour, continue mixing.
  • Add the remaining water (½ cup) (NOTE: the dough is supposed to be slightly sticky and watery, not like normal bread dough, so add more water if it's too dry).
  • Place in a warm area (25-35 degrees celsius) and let the dough rise until it has doubled in size or until it has reached the top of the bowl.
  • Knead the dough with some more whole wheat flour (it can take awhile since it's sticky) and shape it into a log.
  • Divide log into 10 pieces and shape into buns/balls.
  • Place buns in steamer and steam on high heat until you see steam coming out.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and continue steaming for 10 minutes.
  • Serve & enjoy!
