Healthy Recipes: Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls with Light Cream Cheese Icing

Whole Wheat Cinnamon Roll


4 ½ cups Whole wheat pastry flour

1 cup Skim milk

1/3 cup Butter

1/3 cup Sugar

2 1/4 teaspoons Yeast

1 teaspoon Salt

2 Eggs

¼ cup Brown sugar

2 teaspoons Cinnamon, ground

1 Tablespoon Egg whisked or egg beaters


  • Preheat oven to 350°F
  • Dilute sugar into warm water.
  • Then add the yeast.  It is important to make sure the water is not over 110°F or it will kill the yeast. (It is normal for the yeast will foam a little.)
  • Add salt and butter to the water-yeast mixture.
  • Place the flour in your mixing bowl. With dough hook attached to mixer, turn mixer on to medium speed.
  • Add water and yeast mixture slowly to mixing bowl with flour.
  • Mix dough until all the flour has been scraped from the sides. Be careful to not over work your dough.
  • Once the dough is ready, sprinkle a little extra flour on a clean work surface and roll dough out on counter.
  • Then place dough in lightly sprayed bowl and cover with dish towel.
  • Allow to rise for about 1 to 1 ½ hours in a warm area.
  • Next, roll the dough out into a rectangle.
  • Lightly sprinkle brown sugar across every inch of the dough, then sprinkle ground cinnamon over the top of the brown sugar. Make sure to cover the ends of the dough as they are just as important as the center.  If more calories are allotted for you, then add an additional ¼ cup of white sugar. 
  • Dab each end of the roll with egg wash or egg beaters.  This is to help ensure a nice seal so the cinnamon rolls don’t unroll.
  • Starting from the top of the dough, roll toward yourself until you get to the end, then in a push and roll method seal the seam to make it stick.  Slice into 24 small cinnamon rolls.  (Feel free to freeze half the batch before letting rise again to use at a later date.)
  • Place cinnamon rolls on a lightly greased baking pan about ¼ inch apart from one another.
  • Cover and let cinnamon rolls rise for about 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Then bake in oven for 15-20 minutes. 
  • Serve warm alone or serve with a light cream cheese frosting (below)!
