I personally could eat them all day long because they are super filling and simply good. You can make them very individual by adding any kinds of herbs, seeds or condiments you prefer or enjoy them without anything, just as they are.

You only need a little bit more time for the dough because it needs to rest for about an hour so it can rise. But making the buns is super easy I promise. Maybe plan on making them on a Sunday, Saturday or any day you have more time. You can shorten the waiting time by reading your favorite book, watch some Netflix or clean your room/apartment.

Once the dough is ready the fun part begins! I really like to make different buns and for that I separated the dough into three parts and added three different kinds of seeds/herbs to each part. But of course you can skip this part and leave the dough plain if you like.
