  • Cinnamon Rolls: (yes they can still be healthy!!)

Yields: 15 Rolls | Serving Size: 1 Roll | Calories: 188
    Cinnamon Rolls: (yes they can still be healthy!!)

    Yields: 15 Rolls | Serving Size: 1 Roll | Calories: 188
  • Ingredients:

    Note: This recipe will require 3 hours of total rising time. So plan accordingly.

    DOUGH INGREDIENTS:

    - 1 packet active dry yeast
    - 1/2 tsp. honey
    - 1/8 cup warm water (100 – 115 degrees F)
    - 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
    - 1/4 cup honey
    - 1/4 tsp. salt
    - 2 tbsp. olive oil + a little extra on reserve
    1 egg
    3 1/2 cups whole wheat pastry flour

    FILLING INGREDIENTS:

    - 1 cup honey
    - 1 tbsp. molasses
    - 1/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
    - 2 tbsp. cinnamon

    TOPPING (optional):

    - 1 cup chopped pecans

  • Method pt 1:

    Directions

    (This will all be done in one large mixing bowl)

    Step 1 – Pour the yeast into the bowl and mix in the warm water and the 1/2 tsp. honey. Let sit for 5 minutes.

    Now, add the almond milk, 1/4 cup honey, salt olive oil and egg to the yeast mixture.

    Whisk gently until combined.

    Using a wooden spoon, stir in the flour. When it’s partially mixed and too thick to mix with the spoon any longer, begin kneading by hand. This will be very sticky at first, but you’ll find that the more you knead, the more the gluten starts to pull everything together.

  • Method pt 2:

    Coat the ball of dough in a thin layer of olive oil and set back in the bowl. Cover with a towel and let stand for 1 hour to rise.

    Punch down the dough, and cover again. Let it sit for another hour.

    Punch down the dough one last time, cover and let sit for 10 minutes while you prepare the filling.

    In a medium mixing bowl, blend all your filling ingredients together. You should have a nice, thick, molasses-like filling when you are done mixing.

    On a generously floured surface, roll out your dough. Again, be generous with the flour.

  • Method pt 3:

    Roll the dough into a rectangle. Cut with a knife if necessary and place the cut offs in the center of the dough to be rolled back in with the rolling pin (no wasting good dough here!) In fact, if you look closely at the photo above, you can see the lines in the dough where I rolled my cut-offs back in.

    Pour the honey mixture onto the middle the dough.

    Smear on your filling. Make sure it only touches 3 of the four sides of your rectangle.

    Roll the dough, starting with the side that has the honey mixture up to the edge.

  • Method pt 4:

    When you get it rolled almost all the way, use your fingers to “paint” some water onto the edge of the dough that does not have any honey mixture on it. Give the dough one final roll so the dough will be “glued shut” by the water.

    Cut the roll into approximately 1 inch strips, and place each strip in an oiled baking pan or casserole dish. You want the dish to be big enough to give your rolls a little room for rising, but so that they fit tightly after rising. (9x13) But if you have something one size smaller, go with that. If the pan is too big, all the filling will run out.

  • Method final steps:

    Cover the dish with a towel and let the dough rise, one last time, for 1 hour.

    Preheat your oven to 375 degrees F.

    If using the pecans, sprinkle them on now. Place rolls in the oven and bake for 15-18 minutes.

    Allow to cool and squeeze some honey over the top of the rolls.

    - 1/2 tsp water
    - 1 tbsp cocoa (optional)
  • Method pt 1:

    In a food processor combine walnuts ad almonds and pulse to a crumb like consistency...being sure to leave some course pieces for texture.

    Remove nuts and place in a medium bowl.

    Combine crumbed nuts with cocoa and vanilla, mix with a large spoon.

    Add dates to the food processor and pulse several times until they are a gooey consistency.

    This is very important...must be very gooey, as in a ball of goo.

    Add to nut mixture along with vanilla and water.

    You will need to use your hands to knead the mixture until there is one large ball...this will take a few minutes.

  • Method pt 2:

    Shape into 1-2 inch truffles as seen in photo.

    Combine additional cocoa and sprinkle on half of the truffles (optional) if you prefer, shape into small bars instead of truffles.

    Cover and refrigerate. Enjoy!
