  • 2 packages (1/4 ounce each) active dry yeast
  • 3 cups warm water (110° to 115°)
  • 1-1/2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 egg plus 1 egg yolk
  • 1/4 cup sesame seeds
  • 1/4 cup salted sunflower kernels
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 5-1/2 to 6 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • Additional oats


  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the whole wheat flour, oats, 1 egg, sesame and sunflower seeds, oil, butter, sugar, salt, caraway, vinegar and 2 cups all-purpose flour. Beat until smooth. Add enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
  3. Punch dough down. Shape into 18 round balls; roll each into a 4-1/2 in. circle. Place on grease baking sheets. Beat egg yolk with water; brush over buns. Sprinkle with oats. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
  4. Bake at 350° for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans.
