PREPARATION 

Combine first 5 ingredients in a mixing bowl and warm it to 120 degrees. Sprinkle yeast on top of mix. Wait 5-10 minutes and add flour, salt and stir with wooden spoon, kneading dough for 1 minute.

Remove the dough, then push it down and divide into 16 equal parts, about the size of a golf ball). Place in oven at 350 for 8-10 minutes on a greased sheet pan (spray with zero fat spray). Remove, then slice when cooled.
