Hello! I have a really healthy and simple recipe to share with you today. It's one of my favorites to make with a little person around. It only takes about 40 minutes to make and is simple enough for little hands to help with. One of my favorite parts about having my son, Tad, help me is that I am consistently reminded of myself when I was young. I always helped my dad cook growing up, and helping him mix up ingredients in the mixer for chocolate chip cookies are some of my fondest memories. Now that the roles have reversed, I can see how letting my toddler dump in the flour and knead the bread with his tiny hands can spark a joy of cooking, teaching him that the best food is made right in your own kitchen! Even if that means we make a bit of a mess... (;
These buns are a great recipe for anyone who is looking to make a simple bread. I discovered these one night while making sweet potato burgers and was in need of something to hold them with! I decided to throw together a super quick bun recipe, which I found worked really well, and tweaked it to my liking! These are made with whole wheat flour, though you could use all purpose if you wished. I am currently on the path to cutting out refined flours and sugars from our home. These turned out just great with whole wheat!
Yum! Tad loves helping me make these because he can help shape the buns. I find its easiest to shape into a ball in your hand and then sort of flatten them out. If you leave in too round of a shape, they grow really tall rather than wide! That is just personal preference, though, when it comes to eating burgers. You can find my sweet potato burger recipe over on my blog at Under A Tin Roof today! They pair really well for an easy supper (:
