Deluxe Flaxseed Buns

Raise your hands if you love bread in the morning. These Deluxe Flaxseed buns are one of my favorite bread recipes. They are so easy to make – in fact everything is made in only one bowl.

That means very little cleaning, no kneading the dough for hours and most importantly NO Fingers covered in sticky dough.
The truth is, I love anything that’s home baked – but I don’t love the mess I have to clean up after baking. And that’s what’s great about this recipe – apart from the great taste and texture of course. I don’t have to make a mess of the kitchen but I still get amazing homemade bread.

What’s great about this recipe:

  • super easy to make – requires no kneading and won’t get dough everywhere
  • can be made in advance and frozen
  • very healthy

Another thing I like about this bread recipe is, that you can always add extra things if you want – I like to mix it up sometimes, by adding sunflower seeds, chia seeds or sprinkling the top with sesame seeds. That makes it feel and taste like a completely different recipe, but it is still just as easy to make.

This recipe is for a large portion – because they are freezer friendly. I sometimes like to freeze half right after they have cooled. That way I have extra in the freezer for those mornings where I need it to be easy and accessible.

  • 0.5 oz Dry yeast
  • 2 tsp Salt
  • 2 tsp Maple Syrup
  • 3.3 cup Water
  • 2.6 oz Flaxseeds
  • 1 cup Rolled Oats
  • 1 cup Durum Flour
  • Regular Flour
  • Sesame Seeds For Topping


  • Start by pouring the flaxseeds into a bowl 12-24 hours before cooking. Pour water into the bowl until the flaxseeds are just covered. Cover with a lid and leave the flaxseeds to soak up the water until you are ready to cook.
    Pour a bit of butter into a bowl and dissolve the yeast in it. Add the rest of the water and pour in salt, flaxseeds, rolled oats and durum. Stir everything together and a bit of regular flour until you reach a soft and sticky texture.
    It’s important that it shouldn’t be too firm (Think chewing gum)
    Cover the dough with a clean cloth and leave to rise for 1 hour.
    Use a large spoon to dollop the dough onto a baking tray covered with a baking sheet. Sprinkle the top of the buns with sesame seeds or flour.
    Bake for 20-25 minutes at 200 Celsius
