Total Time: 2 hours
- 1 cup whole milk, warmed
- 1 pkg (2 1/4 tsp) active dry yeast
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 cup bread flour plus a little extra
- 2 TBSP olive oil, divided
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 large eggs, divided
- 2 tsp sesame seeds
- In a large bowl mix together the milk and yeast then add the flours to the bowl and stir to combine. Then stir in 1 TBSP of the oil, salt, and 1 of the eggs. Continue to stir until a dough is formed and pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
- Flour a flat work surface and knead the dough for about 5 minutes(dough will be a little sticky) then roll into a smooth ball. Add the remaining 1 TBSP of oil to a large clean bowl and add the dough ball, flipping the dough ball around to coat in the oil. Loosely cover the bowl and allow the dough to rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
- Lightly flour a rimmed baking sheet. Punch the dough down and form it into 6 equal size balls. Lay the dough balls on the baking sheet at about 2-inches apart and lightly press them down so theyre roughly 4-inches in diameter.
- Beat the remaining egg in a small bowl then brush the tops of the buns with a little of the beaten egg. Sprinkle the sesame seeds on the top of the buns then set aside to rise for 30 more minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 375°F.
- Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown on top, about 15 minutes.
- Allow buns to completely cool before slicing.
