Pandesal is a classic Filipino breakfast dish. Our take on it tops the fluffy, buttery Pandesal buns with crunchy Spread the Love® ALMOND BUTTER Granola to really make all of the flavors pop!


  • 2 tsp instant yeast
  • 1¼ cup whole milk, lukewarm
  • 4½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1½ tsp kosher salt
  • ⅓ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ⅓ cup white sugar
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • ½ cup crushed Spread The Love® ALMOND BUTTER Granola


  • Step 1 -
    In a large bowl, combine together flour, sugar, salt.
  • Step 2 -
    Slowly pour in the milk, beaten egg and melted butter. Mix until well blended.
  • Step 3 -
    Add the instant yeast and fold until a sticky dough forms.
  • Step 4 -
    Tip the dough on a floured surface and knead until it becomes smooth and elastic, about 5-10 minutes.
  • Step 5 -
    Form the dough into a ball and lightly coat with oil. Place it in a bowl and cover with a kitchen towel or plastic wrap and place it in a warm area and let it rise until it doubled in size. Depending how warm it is, could take 30-60 minutes to rise.
  • Step 6 -
    Punch down the dough and divide into 2 equal parts using a knife or dough slicer. Roll each into a log. Cut each log into 6 smaller pieces.
  • Step 7 -
    Shape each piece into a ball and roll it in granola crumbs, completely covering all sides.
  • Step 8 -
    Arrange the pieces on a baking sheet living some gaps in between (at least an inch). Leave them to rise second time until double in size.
  • Step 9 -
    While waiting, preheat oven 350° F /185°C. Bake the Pandesal for 20-23 minutes or until the sides are a bit browned.
  • Step 10 -
    Remove from oven and serve after 10 mins of cooling.
