In my opinion, it’s just not Christmas morning without waking up to a warm and sweet cinnamon roll and a creamy cup of coffee or tea. But did you know that you can enjoy soft, delicious cinnamon rolls without all the sugar that traditional ones are loaded with?
These cinnamon rolls were requested by more than one of our family members when I asked them what they want for Christmas morning. If you’ve never made cinnamon rolls before, these are super easy! You can do it!
Our family just arrived home several days ago from another prison ministry tour, sharing at several Florida prisons. We are also in the final stages of completing our apartment for a vacation rental. Needless to say, we are VERY busy right now! But…I LOVE to bake and enjoy making special, healthy dishes for my family. Between decorating and creating special treats, I’m having a lot of fun these days! Ever hear the statement….“So much I want to do, but so little time?” I’m sure you can identify with this!
Late last evening, I started making these rolls and finally climbed into bed at 1:00 this morning. Not exactly the best thing for tired adrenals!! It’s a good thing I decided to make a double batch, because my family enjoyed waking up to these this morning. The rest are in the freezer for the holidays. We may have limited treats this year, but the most important one is done! 🙂
P.S. These also have less gluten and are easier to digest, because when grain is sprouted, it breaks down the proteins and carbohydrates, making it easier to digest. Many people with gluten sensitivities and allergies can eat sprouted wheat, but celiacs should still avoid it. Everyone is different so you have to know what works for you.
Roll out dough in an rectangle-ish shape.
With fingers, cover with soft butter.
Sprinkle with “brown sugar” Truvia and cinnamon, then roll it up.
Cut with pizza cutter…
…then place in pans…
…and let it rise again. Mine took about 45 minutes.
Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. The amount of baking time is very important. Don’t over-bake! You don’t want them doughy, but it’s better to under bake them rather than having them too done and becoming dry.
I hope you enjoy these as much as we do! Merry Christmas!
