How to Make Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls
Posted By melissa On 05/31/2012 @ 2:15 pm In Frugal Living | 6 Comments
I grew up on little refrigerated cans of cinnamon rolls. Do you remember those? Hit the package on the side of the counter, and the gooey, doughy ingredients would pop up. Put them on a pie pan, cook them for 10 minutes, slather on the pre-made icing, and I was good to go.
However, as I have gotten older, I have tried more and more to avoid processed foods. A quick look at the ingredients on the packaged cinnamon rolls shows many ingredients I can’t even pronounce. Instead, I set about to make my own. (A quick thank you to one of my readers, Deb, who first shared the basics of this dough recipe with me.) Since then, I have used it to make all sorts of different creations, including these cinnamon rolls:
Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls
These are delicious plain, but you could also serve them with a simple dusting of powdered sugar on them.
These can be made in less than an hour, and thanks to the simple list of ingredients, you can feel good feeding your kids cinnamon rolls that are made entirely of whole wheat and contain no preservatives.
(You can also cover a few pans with plastic wrap and foil and place them in the freezer for future breakfasts. Just be sure to do this before they rise.)
If you don’t want to take the time to cut the rolls into little cinnamon rolls, you can also divide half of the dough into 6 to 7 inch x 1/2 inch rectangle, cover with half of the cinnamon sugar and roll tightly and put it in a loaf pan for cinnamon bread. In that case, cook for about 20 to 25 minutes, until dark brown all over.
