Inspiration for Healthy Living.

Better-For-You Saturday Cinnamon Rolls

This is something I was craving. So I made them! They are so delicious and so easy. I cut out half the fats, and half the sugar. And trust me, you won’t miss it one bit. So satisfying!

What you need…

For the dough:

milk, 3/4 cup just slightly heated
margarine, 1/4 cup softened
flour, 2 3/4 to 3 1/2 cup
instant yeast, 1 1/2 teaspoons
sugar, 1/4 cup
salt, dash
egg, 1 whisked

For the filling:

brown sugar, 1/2 cup
cinnamon, 1 tablespoon
nutmeg, 1 teaspoon
vanilla, 1 teaspoon
margarine, 1/4 cup softened
canola oil, small splash

For sprinkling:

walnut, chopped, 1/2 cup

For the glaze:

powder sugar, 1/2 cup
skim milk, 2-3 tablespoons

What to do…

1. Heat the milk slightly in either them microwave or on the stovetop. Be careful not to scald it. Once it bubble a touch, take off the heat and drop in the margarine. This will melt. Set aside.

2. Combine the flour, sugar, salt, and yeast together.

3. Add the wet ingredients, which are the water, egg, and milk. Stir together well with a wooden spoon.

4. Keep adding 1/4 cup of the remaining flour to the mixture until it starts to pull away from the bowl. When it’s not as sticky, turn onto a floured cutting board and knead until it starts to look smooth. This won’t take long. You can add more flour to it if it is still too sticky while knead.

5. Now we have to wait a tiny bit. You have to cover the bread with a damp paper towel. It will rest for 10 to 15 minutes.

6. So while that is hanging out, you can make the filling! Mix together all the filling ingredients except the walnuts (those will be sprinkled on before we roll it up).

7. Now the 15 minutes has passed, roll the dough out to the into a large rectangle. Then spread the filling mixture evenly all over. Sprinkle will walnuts. Roll it up!

8. Cut into 12 to 16 rolls. Place in a non-stick brownie pan or a muffin pan. Now we need to cover this again with a damp papertowel and let it rest until it rises (about doubled), this will be about 20 to 40 minutes.

9. Bake in a 375 degree oven for 20 to 30 minutes, until brown. Drizzle with glaze when slightly cooled.

10. ENJOY!
