Whole Wheat Rolls with Sunflower Seeds

The 16th of October has been declared as “World Bread Day” by the International Union Of Bakers And Bakers-Confectioners (UIB). On that occasion Zorra at the great Kochtopf” (a Swiss expat living in Spain) is organizing an event and roundup in order to celebrate bread and the art of bread making around the world. So, everybody is cordially invited to bake or buy the bread of their choice and talk about it on their blog.

I did not know about this event earlier and read about it at Rosa’s Yummy Yums blog. Although I posted earlier, I thought that it would be a pity if I did not post these lovely rolls which I made months ago and forgot all about them until I read the post.

I saw these sunflower seeds at the supermarket and put them in the basket not knowing what to do with them. I browsed the internet and when I saw this recipe it seemed very easy to make so I made them and they were so addictive. We tried them with cream cheese and honey for breakfast, as a snack with cheese and tomato and mayo, delicious or just plain with dinner.

    Lovely looking rolls, Ivy. And you’ve just reminded me that I need to repost my bread post. I didn’t read the instructions clearly. Clever, huh?

  8. They look so beautiful.

  9. Yummo Ivy – those sunflower seeds on top look so good. Cheese and honey – mmm….

  10. MMmmmm lovely little bread rolls! The sunflower seeds give them a wonderful touch :D.

  11. I have been thinking of starting to try breads out. Tried a couple of times but they didn’t come out as planned. Need some practice … maybe I will start with these.

  12. Your bread rolls look really lovely with their sunflower seeds sitting on top. Happy WBD Ivy 🙂

  13. Ivy, these rolls look great, and they seem healthy as well!

  14. Ooooh yum, Ivy. I love breads with nuts/seeds. There is a bread at Whole Foods (organic chain grocery) that is called “seeduction” and I could eat it every day and never get sick of it.

  15. Yummie, very compelling rolls!

    Thx for your participation in WBD’08.

  16. Ivy those look delish… but I must say, those look like husked pumpkin seeds… 🙂
    Maybe they are different because of the country difference? I see a lot of different products between here and most European countries.

  17. The sunflower seeds make your rolls look very pretty. It almost seems criminal to eat them. Bet they were very good.

  18. Looks pretty and yummy 🙂

  19. These rolls look great! And so easy to divide them like that!
    I think I’ll try to bake them too if I can find the time half with sunflower seeds and half with pumpkin seeds (that you used). Great idea

  20. Hi Ivy, I’m back again. I’m busy making these rolls as we ‘speak’. As I am European (that means a metric-girl), I just wanted to mention that 2 cups flour isn’t 500 gr but about 260-280 g. I get confused by these cups sometimes too.. they should ban it I think ;-).

  21. They are ready for the afterparty! THanks for the recipe!
