INGREDIENTS: For the Dough:
- 2 C Spelt Flour
- 1 C freshly ground Rye Flour
- 1 C Sourdough Starter
- 1/2 C Egg Whites
- 1/2 C Greek yogurt
- 1 Tablespoon of ground flax
- Pinch of salt
- 1 Tablespoon Honey
- 2 teaspoons room temperature butter(Used for the rolled out dough)
For the Cinnamon filling:
- 2 1/2 Tablespoons coconut sugar*
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- small pinch of salt
- Put all ingredients in a food processor in the order listed, drizzle all the wet ingredients, or you can need it in a bowl.
- Turn on food processor until you have a ball of dough. (Doesn’t take long)
- Take the dough out of the food processor and kneed for a minute on a floured surface. (Use spelt flour)
- Let dough rise for 6-12 hours, in a lightly greased bowl.
- After it has rose, grease a baking sheet and your rolling pin with 1 teaspoon of butter. And gently roll out your dough into a rectangle.
- Now mix 2 1/2 Tablespoons coconut sugar, two teaspoons cinnamon and a small pinch of salt.
- Spread a teaspoon of softend butter, on the rolled dough and sprinkle on the cinnamon mixture.
- Gently pick up the bottom part of the rectangle and start rolling.
- Once you’ve got your cinnamon roll log, cut them into ten slices using the dental floss method. (Slide a piece of dental floss underneath the log and cross the two sides of dental floss, so it cuts the log.) I suggest using a clean dental floss, but if your tight on money I won’t judge for using a dirty one… JK
- Preheat oven to 175 C or 350 F, Let it rise for a half hour-hour, then stick them in the oven for about 20 minutes. Until slightly golden at the top.
* A little Coconut sugar is on plan, you could substitute with a sugar free “brown sugar” if you prefer. I personally prefer it with coconut sugar.
*This recipe works great to make the dough the night before and let rise overnight, then roll out and bake in the morning for breakfast!
