If you're a fan of store-bought sandwich rounds, you'll love making your own version. These honey whole wheat sandwich thins are fresh and tasty and they're a great option for those who try to eat low-carb diets.
A little over 10 years ago, I enrolled in Weight Watchers and it drastically changed the way I looked at food. I lost about 20 pounds thanks to their "points" program, and although I don't regularly count points for every single thing I eat anymore, Weight Watchers was more than just a diet to me - it was a lifestyle change. There are a few things that even now, more than a decade later, I still can't bring myself to do after joining WW. I won't touch a regular, calorie laden soft drink (and I rarely drink diet soda) - I will almost always opt for water, I always dip my salad into a small portion of dressing instead of pouring the dressing onto the salad, and I always try to opt for "lighter" versions of the food I love the most, like bread. When I say lighter, I don't necessarily mean "diet" or "low-cal" - I mean I'll try to eat a smaller or slimmer portion. That's where these honey wheat sandwich rounds come into play. I can't even tell you how many packages of sandwich thins I bought while I was on Weight Watchers. Instead of consuming huge amounts of calories in bread, I was able to enjoy my lunch with sandwich thins, reducing my calorie intake (and overall point intake).
There is nothing better than the smell of fresh bread coming from the oven, so get ready to whip up a batch of your own honey whole wheat sandwich thins. I like to use my KitchenAid Mixer with dough hook, but you can certainly do this by hand too.

Honey Wheat Sandwich Thins Recipe
- 2 ¼ cups Warm Water
- 1 tablespoon Sugar
- 1 tablespoon Yeast
- 2 ¾ cups Whole Wheat Flour
- 2 tablespoons ground Flax Seed
- ¼ cup Honey
- 2 ¼ cups White Flour
- 1 teaspoon Salt
In a bowl, mix the 1 cup of warm water, flax seed, the sugar, the yeast, and ¾ cup of whole wheat flour, then set aside for 10 minutes.
Add in the remaining flours, honey, and salt. Knead the batter well with your hands or with a stand mixer until dough becomes easy to handle. Add more flour if needed.
Once all of the flour is incorporated and the dough is no longer sticky. Place the dough in a warm area and cover it with a clean towel. Let it rise for about 30 minutes.
Remove the dough from the bowl and knead a few times.
Divide the dough into 24 pieces and roll each into a small ball. Place on a greased / lined cookie sheet and let the balls rest for a few minutes.
Once the balls have rested, spray each of the tops with a little oil and use your hand to flatten. Prick the dough a few times with a fork or a toothpick. Sprinkle a few raw rolled oats on the top of the thins if desired.
Bake at 375 degrees for about 15 minutes or until the thins are cooked through. Remove from the oven and cool. Store in the fridge or freezer until ready to use.
