Recipe Ingredients for Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls

6 2/3 c whole wheat flour
2 2/3 c water, warm
1 T yeast, SAF
1 tsp yeast, SAF
1/2 c wheat gluten, vital
1/4 c extra virgin olive oil
2 tsp salt, sea
1 T honey
1 tsp honey
1/4 c rolled oats
1 1/2 c honey
1 c smart balance, melted

Recipe Directions for Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls

  1. Put 3 1/3 C of the whole wheat flour, all the water, and all the yeast in a mixing bowl. Use dough hook on "stir" speed to mix until just blended. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and allow to sit for 15-30 minutes, until bubbly and doubled in size.

  2. While dough is on its first rise, prepare two 9x13" pans by drizzling 1/4 C of honey and 1/4 C melted butter (or Smart Balance) in the bottom of each pan.

  3. When dough is doubled in size after first rise, separate into two portions. Rol out the first section into a large rectangle about 1/2" thick. Spread melted butter (or Smart Balance) all over dough. Drizzle honey over dough. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Roll along long edge.

  4. Press the outside edge gently into the roll to help it stay sealed. Cut rolls off in 1 to 1-1/2" sections. Transfer rolls to baking pan, spreading out about 1/2" to 3/4" to allow room for swelling during second rise. Cover with plastic wrap and move pan to warm, draft-free location for second rise. Repeat with second portion of dough.

  5. Let cinnamon rolls rise for about 30 minutes, until they've swelled to fill the pan. Bake for 20 minutes at 375°F. Take out of oven and flip the rolls over in the pan to coat the top side. Store in an airtight container.
