Quick Whole Wheat Vegan Rolls

Modified from Taste of Home’s 40 minute Hamburger Buns

Even after switching out the refined sugar and replacing the egg I was able to make fluffy, delish hotdog buns.

  • 2 TBS dry active yeast
  • 1 cup + 2 TBS of warm water
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 TBS Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer (do not add the water!)
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 3 1/4 cups whole wheat flour

First proof the yeast. Mix the maple syrup and the warm water together. You’ll want the mixture to be between 108 and 115 degrees. Keep in mind if your maple syrup is refrigerated you’ll need to let it come up in temp either by warming it or mixing it with hotter water. If it is too hot you will kill your yeast. Use a thermometer. Mix the yeast and the oil in and let sit for at least 5 minutes (it will foam/ look frothy)

Mix the dry good together. Blend the wet and the dry ingredients together. If your dough is extra sticky feel free to add some additional whole wheat flour.

Knead the dough for 5-10 minutes. Let rest and raise for 15 min (skip this step if you are short on time and just go to the next step. You may have a slightly more dense product, but it will still turn out!)

Separate the dough into as many rolls or buns that you need. We were making brat buns so we needed 8 to fill our silicone mold. Gently rolls in a balls for hamburgers if you need that shape. This recipe makes 10 good sized hamburger buns, 8 brat buns, or 18 dinner rolls. Once you get you shape place on a baking sheet and let rise for 15 minutes. Preheat your oven to 425 while rolls are rising.

Bake at 425 for 8 to 10 minutes. The brat buns took a 10-12 minutes. Your dinner roll may only take 8.

Brush with vegan butter or olive oil after they are out of the oven. Enjoy!
