Seed, spelt and sea buckthorn rolls

This is the type of roll that I quickly put together in the evenings when I realise that I have nothing prepared for breakfast for the next day, or I sometimes make them for a weekend breakfast when there's time for baking in the morning. These are really easy and quick rolls and healthy too. Of course the rising time for the dough delays the whole process a little, but today I didn't mind that. I just had the loveliest breakfast moment eating these rolls freshly baked.

The sea buckthorn powder adds a certain hint of sharpness into the background flavour. And of course sea buckthorn is an extremely healthy berry, so I try to slip this powder into many meals, especially into breakfast bowls. One really excellent source for healthy berry powders are Arctic Power Berries. Have a look at their story and vision on their webpage. As a fellow Finn I need to promote this page a little bit, as the girls are doing an excellent job spreading Finnish berry powders to a wider audience. They ship their products into many countries and through that are also doing me a huge favour, because now I don't have to carry those powders with me from Finland anymore and can conveniently order them to my home in England instead. 

Now to the recipe, which makes about 8 small vegan rolls.


250 g spelt flour
1 tbsp dry yeast
1 tbsp sea buckthorn powder
50 g mixed seeds (for example pumpkin, sunflower, sesame)
200 ml lukewarm water
1 tbsp olive oil
Poppy seeds for the top


Mix the flour, dry yeast, sea buckthorn powder and the mixed seeds in a bowl. Then add the lukewarm water and knead. Once the dough is smooth, also add the olive oil and knead a little more. Cover it and let rise for about one hour.

Pre-heat the oven to 220 C. Shape rolls from the dough and sprinkle some poppy seeds on the top. Then bake them in the oven for about 10-15 minutes until the rolls are golden brown.

All done! Have a brilliant weekend!

  1. These look amazing to have on the side with breakfast! I've never worked with seed buckthorn powder before. I'll have to find it in the market. :)

    1. Thank you, Laura! Sea buckthorn is packed with vitamin C, so I try to add it to many dishes whenever suitable.
