Whole wheat cinnamon rolls

Ingredients:

3 ½ cups whole wheat flour

2 tbsp brown sugar

1 tsp salt

2 ¼ tsp instant yeast

1 large egg

1 cup soy beverage

⅓ cup water

1 tbsp unsalted butter

For the filling:

¼ cup brown sugar

1 ½ tbsp ground cinnamon

2 tbsp unsalted butter

Directions:

Combine flour, sugar, yeast, and salt in a large bowl. Use a stand mixer if you have one.

In a small, microwave-safe bowl, combine and warm soy beverage, water, and unsalted butter.

Slowly combine the wet and dry ingredients and add the egg. Knead the dough for 5 minutes longer.

Let dough rise in a covered bowl for 45 minutes.

Prepare the filling: combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl, and warm up remaining butter.

Grease a 9″ pie dish and set aside.

Roll out the dough to roughly 15″ by 12″, cover it with butter and sprinkle the cinnamon mixture on top.

Form a long roll and cut it into seven slices. Arrange your seven rolls in the pie dish.

Proof the rolls for 30 more minutes and pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees.

Cook rolls uncovered for 25 minutes; cover them loosely with aluminum foil and cook for 5-10 minutes more.

You can enjoy them as-is, or use a frosting or icing of your choice!
