Buns with carrots and seeds 

It’s been a while since making a blog post, but in these corona virus times, there’s more time to do things like this. 

This situation is so strange and difficult for many people. Here in Spain everyone is in quarantine and I’ve found it very difficult to accept the big change in my daily life, but I know I’m lucky not to be affected personally and I can at least still ride my bike indoor. So I shouldn’t feel so sorry for myself – I just have to adapt to the temporary changes in my life. I am staying in Spain and I hope to get outside soon and I pray for this situation to be solved anytime soon 🤞🏼🌸🙏🏼

Tasty healthy buns

As an athlete my diet is a big part of my life and since July 2019, I’ve been a vegetarian – actually I would say I’m 90% vegan, as I only eat eggs as an animal food and occasionally a bit of cheese 🤫. I made this change simply because I didn’t like meat after I was hit by a stomach virus (it was probably salmonella). I do it only for my health and I’ve seen a great improvement in my health since (no doubt it makes it even more worth it when you know what other benefits it has in terms of the environment and animal welfare). So in these corona times I will just encourage you to take care of your own health by eating a more basic diet. 

I don’t eat much bread either, since my boyfriend is allergic to wheat, so it’s rare that I am baking bread and buns, BUT I LOOOOOVE to make my own bread and when I crave for it I always make it myself – otherwise I just don’t get satisfied so I better do it right when I finally crave for it ! 😅

I’ve become a bit addicted to these tasty buns! They are very healthy – packed with vitamins, iron, proteins, dietary fiber and guess what?! All these nutrients are making your immune system stronger 🤩 And we only want our immune system super strong at the moment, right!? 🙌🏼

I’ll jump right to the recipe and please don’t hoard the yeast!! You can make tons of buns and other kind of breads with just one pack of yeast 🙌🏼


  • 12 gr. yeast

  • 5 1/2 dl cold water

  • 15 Gr. Salt (pink Himalaya salt is recommended)

  • 150 Gr. whole wheat flour

  • 450 Gr. wheat flour

  • 75 Gr. Sunflower seeds 

  • 75 Gr. Linseed 

  • 3 grated carrots 


1. Dissolve the yeast in the water

2. Add the salt 

3. Add the flour and mix it carefully for 1-2 min (use an electronic mixer like in the picture below)

4. Add the seeds and grated carrots and let it all knead until the dough let go of the bowl (takes approx 10-12 min)

5. Let it rise on the kitchen counter for half an hour and after cover the bowl with wrap and put it in the fridge for 4 hours or more until it has risen enough. 

6. Preheat the oven to 230 degrees on hot air

7. Carefully pour the dough onto a floured table 

8. Carefully divide the dough into 12 buns, simply just by using a baking spatula and place them on a baking tray covered with baking paper. 

9. Bake in the oven for approx. 20 min 

Enjoy and take care ❤️
