Wholemeal Carrot Easter Buns

Wholemeal Carrot Easter Buns

The Easter weather presents itself from its best side.
The sun is shining and here and there, we even spotted the Easter Bunny doing his work.

Therefore, we do not want to miss to wish you a happy Easter.
With our today's recipe we send you sunny springtime greetings.

As already mentioned, we love carrots.
Our mornings always start with a fresh juice from carrots and many other green vegetables.

We really think it's a pity to throw all the juice pulp on the compost.
That's why we love to mix the rest of the squeezed carrots for instance in our home-baked bread or as you can see here in our Easter buns.

But, of course, you can also use freshly grated carrots.

Baking rolls is so easy and doesn't require any fundamental skills.
With just a few ingredients, you can produce your own delicious buns at home.

Our Easter buns perfectly satisfy your hunger.
And with a healthy topping, they are not only delicious, but also a beautiful treat for the eyes.


And as always, you can vary with the ingredients.
You can also make sweet rolls by mixing in one tablespoon of maple syrup or prepare them with other grated vegetables like zucchini.

If you are not familiar with baking with wholemeal grain, you will notice that the consistency of wholemeal bread is a little harder and not soft and fluffy like when baking with white flour.
But that doest affect the taste by no means and it is far healthier than white flour.

We wish you a beautiful long Easter weekend.

Which is your favorite bun recipe?
