Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls

The EZ Bread Dough recipe has many uses and one of my favorites is to make it into cinnamon rolls. Now the most delicious cinnamon rolls I’ve ever eaten are from Cinnabon because they are filled with cinnamon, ooey-gooey, and covered in frosting. Super delicious! Now the problem with cinnamon rolls is that they aren’t very healthy. I’m pretty sure cinnamon rolls would cease to be if they were ultra-healthy. But they are fun to eat on occasion and if you can make them whole wheat…they are at least healthy-ER. Now the other problem cinnamon rolls have is that alot of times homemade ones aren’t very good. They can be crunchy, bland, and time consuming! So of course, I have some solutions for that as well! Check out my videos (part 1 and part 2) to see how easy and delicious homemade cinnamon rolls can be! (I forgot to mention in my video that you can tell when they are done because they will be golden brown on top)

**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**

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.

**Remember** Today is the last day you can order your signed copy from Amazon of my new book (click HERE to order) I Can’t Believe It’s Food Storage, plus if you email me (everydayfoodstorage[at]gmail.com) I’ll email you back with a FREE download for menu planning…you’ll learn more about that in my book 😉 To watch a video explaining my book, click HERE.
