Oatmeal burger buns

Yield: 16 servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pack Active dry yeast
¼ cup Warm water
¼ cup Molasses
4 tablespoons Dairy free margarine
2 teaspoons Salt
¼ cup Brown sugar
2 cups Oatmeal (uncooked)
1 cup Boiling water
1 cup Cool water
2 cups Whole wheat flour
2½ cup Unbleached white flour

Measure ¼ cup warm water and stir yeast and 1 tablespoon of the molasses in the water. Let stand until bubbly.

Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine margarine, remaining molasses, salt, brown sugar, oatmeal and the boiling water, stirring until margarine melts.

Add cool water and yeast to above mixture. Beat in 4 cups of the flour, 1 cup at a time.

Turn out the dough onto a floured board and knead until smooth, about 5 minutes, adding more flour as needed to prevent sticking.

Turn dough over in a greased bowl; cover and let rise ina warm place until doubled (about 1 hour).

Punch dough down and divide into 16 equalpieces. Shape each piece into a smooth ball. Place balls about 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets and flatten slightly. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled (30 or 40 minutes.) Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven until lightly browned, about 20 minutes.

Note: This recipe can be shaped into 2 loaves and placed in greased 9 x 5-inch loaf pans. Allow to rise until double and bake in a 350 degree oven about 40 minutes or until bread sounds hollow when tapped on bottom.
