  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add oil, molasses, caraway seed, salt, vinegar and egg.  Stir.
  2. Add whole wheat flour, oat bran, rye flour, ground flaxseed, whole flaxseed, sesame and sunflower seeds.  Beat until smooth. Add enough all-purpose flour to form a soft dough.  Turn onto floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, 6 to 8 minutes.

  4. Beat egg white with water until frothy.  Brush over buns.  Sprinkle whole flaxseed, caraway and sesame seeds on buns.
  5. Cover with oiled plastic wrap.  Let rise until double in bulk, about 50 minutes.
