I (heart) You!
I wanted a way to make the back to school winter lunches a little bit more exciting and after stumbling across a blog called Bento for Kidlet I was super inspired to get creative! Her lunches are amazing to say the least and I will try my hardest to make my little bug’s lunches more creative!
I thought little heart shaped pb&j sandwhiches would be super cute so I threw together some ingredients and they turned out perfect! I altered a Focaccia bread recipe by leaving out the spices and switching out some of the AP Flour for Whole wheat flour. If only I could find my Mickey Mouse Cookie cutter!
I (heart) you Whole Wheat mini buns (I used just half of this recipe)
- 1 3/4 cups warm water
- 4 1/4 tsp quick rise yeast
- 1 tsp granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup Olive oil
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
Dissolve the sugar in the warm water and whisk in the yeast. Let rest for 5 minutes.
Add the olive oil and the salt.
Mix the flour in one cup at a time and knead until you have a smooth soft dough.
Roll the dough 1/2″ thin and cut out with a cookie cutter. I used a heart shaped cutter roughly 3 inches. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and cover with a towel. Let rise 30 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Brush the tops of buns with Olive oil and bake for 10-14 minutes.
