Author Lacey Baier of A Sweet Pea Chef


  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk or milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp melted unsalted, organic grass-fed butter (can also use coconut oil, if desired)
  • 2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 1/4 tsp yeast


  1. Place all ingredients in a bread machine according to the manufacturer's instructions. Program for the Dough cycle and press Start.
  2. Lightly dust a pizza stone with cornmeal (if you don't have a pizza stone, you may line a baking sheet with parchment paper instead).
  3. After the bread machine finishes, remove the dough and place on a lightly floured surface.
  4. Divide into 6 equal portions for hamburger/sandwich buns or 7 equal portions for hot dog buns.
  5. Form the hamburger/sandwich buns into tight rounds. If making hot dog buns, roll into tight rounds and then flatten into ovals by rolling up each portion tightly to make a cylinder.
  6. Place the buns on the pizza stone (or baking sheet) at least 1 inch apart. Cover lightly with plastic wrap and let stand for 40-50 minutes. If buns have not risen to desired size, allow to rise for an additional 15-25 minutes, depending on desired size.
  7. Twenty minutes prior to baking, preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place the pizza stone in the center of the oven and bake until lightly browned, 15-22 minutes, depending on the size of the roll. Start checking the buns at 11 minutes to be safe.
  8. Remove immediately to a cooling rack and cool thoroughly before slicing.
