Healthy Cinnamon buns

March 29, 2012

Being 9 month pregnant now I am just craving home baked goods. I found this recipe and it was easy. I modified it to be more easily separated into single serving portions and healthier.

Ninety Minute Rolls

2-2 1/2 cups flour (I used 3/4 all purpose and the rest wheat)
** if using whole wheat I added 1 tbsp wheat gluten**
1/2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 pkg. or 1 Tbsp. yeast
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup water
2 Tbsp. margarine

Cinnamon sugar : Combine 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 cup sugar

Directions:

Mix 3/4 cup flour with sugar, yeast, and salt.
Heat milk, water and margarine until very warm (I did 1 minute in microwave).
Add to dry ingredients and beat 2 minutes on medium speed.
Add 1/4 cup flour. Beat 2 minutes on high.
Stir in enough flour to make a stiff dough.
Knead 2-3 minutes.
Place in greased bowl and let rise 15 minutes.
Divide dough into 12 pieces and shape into balls. Coat in cinnamon sugar mix. I also added some in the center to maximize the flavor
Place in greased muffin tin. Let rise 15 minutes.
Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes.

The buns are easy and good. My toddler loved to help with making them. You can also omit the cinnamon sugar and make dinner rolls.
