Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls-Part One:
**A tip when serving something like cinnamon rolls for breakfast is to pair it with a protein (i.e. egg) to help your body feel full faster and to help with the sugar, we usually serve boiled eggs with our cinnamon rolls**
EZ Wheat Bread recipe (the recipe mentioned in the video)
1 1/4 cup warm water
1 Tblsp active dry yeast
1/4 cup honey or 1/3 cup sugar
2 3/4 cups whole wheat flour (or whatever combination white/wheat you like..I use 100% hard white wheat. To learn more about the different types of wheat, download my wheat handout)
1/4 cup wheat gluten
1 tsp salt
2 Tblsp nonfat non instant dry milk
1 Tblsp butter/margarine/oil
1 Tblsp vinegar
1/4 cup potato flakes (NOT potato pearls)
Mix ingredients in order listed in mixing bowl of mixer with dough hook attachment (like kitchen-aid) for 12-15 minutes. Let rise until double, 1- 1 1/2 hours. Punch down, and shape into loaf or rolls. Let rise again until double and bake 375 degrees for 20-30 minutes until golden brown and sounds hollow when lightly tapped.
If you are making this recipe in a bread machine, follow your bread machine’s directions for wheat or whole grain selection and add the ingredients in the order listed for their recommendations. (only one loaf will fit in a bread maker)
Cinnamon Roll Filling
1 c. packed brown sugar
1-2 T. cinnamon
1/3 c. butter
Cream ingredients together and spread over rolled out dough.
Cream Cheese Frosting
4 oz. (half a bar) cream cheese (I use fat free)
1/2 c. butter
2 c. powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla
Cream together cream cheese and butter (I know I didn’t do this in the video…it was only because I forgot…don’t make my same mistake!) slowly add in 2 c. powdered sugar and vanilla. Store leftovers in the fridge.
