A Healthier Cinnamon Roll Recipe



Who doesn’t love a warm, gooey cinnamon roll on Christmas morning, and in my opinion, it’s even better if you can sneak a little nutrition into them as well!  Here’s my take on our favorite Christmas treat.

Add 1/2 cup honey to tepid water.  Stir with a fork.  Add 1 and 1/2 TB yeast. Stir. Let proof for ten minutes.

Add 1 1/2 tea salt, 1/4 cup melted and then cooled coconut oil. Mix. Slowly add 6 cups of bread flour and 1/2 cup wheat bran or flax seed. Mix well. Let rest in a well oiled bowl for about an hour.

Roll out on a floured surface. Spread melted butter over the surface.  Sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top of butter.  Roll up the dough and cut into 1-2 inch pieces (depending on how big you like your rolls). Place in buttered 9×13 pans with towels covering. Let rise until doubled in size. Cook at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes. let cool and then ice.


1-2 TB melted butter.

Add 4-5 cups powdered sugar

1 tea maple flavoring

1-2 tea coffee

few TB almond milk

whisk all ingredients to a pourable consistency.




Just keep livin!
