Measure the flour into a large mixing bowl and add the sugar, yeast, salt and activated charcoal, if using. Mix well.


Mix together the melted butter, aquafaba and water and add to the flour.


Mix the liquid into the flour with your hands, bringing everything together into a rough ball of dough.


Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and knead for 5 minutes, or until smooth and elastic.


Make a ball with the dough and coat it with a little olive oil. Return to the bowl, cover with cling film or a damp tea towel and leave to rise for 1 hour, or until doubled in size.


Once risen, remove the dough from the bowl and place on a floured surface. Knock the air out of the dough and knead again for a few seconds.


Divide the dough into 6-8 equal portions and roll each into a ball. Arrange the buns in a baking tin, 1-2cms apart.


Brush the tops of the buns with the remaining aquafaba and sprinkle with sesame seeds. Cover with a damp tea towel and leave to rise for a further 5-10 minutes. Preheat your oven to 200°C (Gas Mark 6, 400°F).


When the oven is hot and your dough has risen, transfer the tin to the oven and bake for 15-20 minutes, or until golden. Remove from the oven and leave to cool slightly before serving, or store in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
