Finally, I made a healthier version of pandesal and it was sooo good :D


  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 3 1/4 teaspoon rapid rise yeast
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 4 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 6 tablespoon melted butter or melted margarine or oil
  • 1 cup bread crumbs



  • In a medium bowl , add water and warm it in the microwave for 35 seconds. 
  • Add the yeast and 1 tablespoon of sugar to the warm water.  Stir until the yeast and sugar are fully dissolved.  Set aside.
  • In the mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder . Mix well by stirring
  • Add the butter, and the yeast-sugar-water mixture then mix again until a dough is formed. Use your clean hands to mix the ingredients.
  • In a flat surface, knead the dough until it becomes a smooth ball then put it back in the mixing bowl. Cover the mixing bowl with damp cloth or damp paper towel and let the dough rise for at least 1 hour.
  • Then put the dough back to the flat surface and divide into 4 equal parts using a dough slicer.
  • Shape each part into a rope about two inches wide.
  • Slice the dough into small size about 2 inch wide.
  • Roll the sliced dough over the breadcrumbs and place in a baking tray with wax paper (makes sure to provide space between dough as this will rise later on)
  • Pre heat the oven at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 10 minutes
  • Bake until a little brown on top, about 15 to 20 minutes.
