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.
