Skinny overnight Cinnamon Rolls!

Skinny overnight Cinnamon Rolls!

One of my kids favorite things in the world are cinnamon rolls! Hot and gooey in the morning. However, as a health coach it is hard to buy the store brand filled with sugar and preservatives. So, I decided to look around and find a recipe I could make and feel good about. I found one from HandletheHeat.com that looked delicious! Surprise your kids one morning and enjoy a little taste of heaven.

Ingredients:

For the dough:

1 cup lukewarm almond milk (or any other milk)
1/3 cup lukewarm water
1 package (2 1/4 teaspoons) instant yeast
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
3 1/2 cups (15.75 ounces) white whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon fine salt

For the filling:

1/3 cup packed dark brown sugar
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon fine salt
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled

For the icing:

1 1/2 tablespoons heavy cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar

Directions:

For the dough:

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the dough hook, combine all the dough ingredients and stir until combined. Turn the mixer on medium speed and knead for 5 minutes, or until smooth. Remove the dough to a floured work surface, cover, and let rest for 10 minutes.

For the filling:

In a small bowl combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt.

After the dough has rested, use a floured rolling pin to roll it out into about a 9 by 15-inch rectangle. Trim the edges. Brush all over with melted butter. Sprinkle evenly with the cinnamon sugar mixture, leaving a 1/2-inch border at the far edge. Roll the dough up, pinching with your fingers to keep it tightly rolled. Place the seam before positioning the log seam side down.

Use a very sharp knife to cut off the ends then cut the dough into 12 equal pieces. Place in a greased pie pan or 9 by 13-inch baking pan. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes minutes, or until golden brown. Let cool on a wire rack for at least 5 minutes.

For the icing:

While the rolls cool, whisk together the icing ingredients until smooth. Drizzle all over the warm rolls and serve.

To complain is always nonacceptance of what is. It invariably carries an unconscious negative charge. When you complain, you make yourself aContinue Reading
