Whole Wheat Slider Buns

Whole wheat breads are generally good for our health as it contains vitamins, minerals and protein when compared to breads made from refined white flour. Here, i have used white whole wheat flour which are milled from white spring wheat rather than using the whole wheat flour milled from red wheat. This wwwf bread do not taste bitter and has the taste similar to that of refined flour. As this flour lacks certain compounds that is found in traditional whole wheat flour, you have to knead longer to develop the adequate gluten. Other than that it is a bun to slather the butter on or to make your fav burger or just as a side for a hearty soup.
