I have some buns in my oven…
And they are totally not the kind you are thinking about even though I’m DY-ING to get a baby in this belly. Yes, ma’am. I mean, I’m not getting any younger here people. This biological clock is a tick-tick-tockin’.
Hear that, husband?
Apparently there is something in the water that hasn’t made its way into my system yet because I swear all of my friends, acquaintances, sisters, next door neighbors, celebrity crushes and the Duchess of flipping Cambridge is knocked up and having a baby except for me.
Oh, AND every single one of them is due in July.
Uuuum, hello?!?!? Where is my magic baby pill?
I just don’t have the patience to wait for such things. Why can’t having a baby just happen overnight like a magical cup of chocolate covered strawberry oats? Then why can’t they just stay babies and not morph into evil teenagers who like to drink too much and wreak havoc on their parent’s lives. Why can’t they just stay cute and cuddly like a precious little otter or something?
I just don’t understand it.
Seriously, why couldn’t we just be Toys R Us kids forever? Is that really too much to ask for? Now I can’t even step foot in the place because the last one I went to was so dingy and gross and unkempt, it seriously looked as if the editors of peopleofwalmart.com just lifted the roof and hurled its refuse into the aisles because those characters were too hideous and repulsive to appear on their website.
Bless their hearts.
Wow. Ok, hi! Sorry for that wee bit of a rant. I have not a clue where that came from.
Anyway, moving on…
You want to know what you don’t need patience for? Making these amazingly easy, super simple whole wheat rolls. There are absolutely zero crazy 75 hour rising times and zero 97 hour resting times. The longest you’ll have to wait is forty minutes! Forty minutes for fresh, made-from-scratch, warm and chewy whole wheat dinner or sandwich rolls sprinkled with chia and flax seeds and shaped to fit your needs.
I made these for my Orange Bourbon Mini Chicken Phillies, but you can make them for hamburger buns, slider buns, hot dog buns, sub sandwich rolls, or even for sliced bread. With all of the crazy chemical laden whole wheat replicas on the market these days, the only excuse for not making your own bread is because you’re a bit timid to work with yeast. That’s completely understandable, and I totally get your drift but once you make these?
You’ll never have to worry about another scary bread recipe again.
Getting to know you…
Do you have/want kids?
Do you know anyone due in July?
Are you scared to make bread?
