To Quick Mini Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls

Nothing smells like Sunday morning more than cinnamon wafting from the kitchen and drawing people out of bed. Even better, no prep work needed the night before in order to greet your family with homemade cinnamon rolls either.

Mini Cinnamon Rolls

These 1-bite/2 bite if you are trying to eat with a little dignity cinnamon rolls are definitely the quickest I’ve ever made and certainly fulfill those cinnamon cravings.

Recipe adapted from Half Baked Harvest

Ingredients:
Dough:
1 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon milk
3/4 cup almond milk + 1/8 tsp. vinegar

Filling:
2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
1/4 cup brown sugar (I actually used less)
2 teaspoon cinnamon

Icing:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Spray a mini muffin tin with cooking spray.
  2. To make the dough place the flour, brown sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium size mixing bowl. Stir in the almond milk (with the vinegar already added to it for a good minute) until a dough ball forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface (if there is not enough flour the dough will stick to the counter when you are trying to roll the dough into a log). Roll the dough into an a rectangle about 1/4th inch thick. If the dough sticks to the rolling pin add more a sprinkle more of flour, but try and add as little flour as you can. The more flour you add the dryer the dough will be.
  3. Spread the melted coconut oil all over the dough and then sprinkle with the brown sugar and cinnamon. I like to use my hands to spread the sugar around the dough, again I ender up using probably a litte less than a 1/4 a cup. Roll into a log and cut into 15 or 16 equal buns (If some of the dough rips while rolling, just pinch it back together. It is no big deal, don’t stress!). Place the buns into the prepared muffin tins. Bake for
    2-14 minutes or until the buns are lightly browned. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes and spoon icing over top each bun.
  4. To make the icing mix the powder sugar, milk and vanilla in a small bowl until smooth. Drizzle over the cinnamon buns
  5. Plate with some fresh fruit and you are golden (:
