Home Made Apple Cinnamon Rolls - Healthy Breakfast Treats

I love cinnamon rolls. It reminds me fond memories of the good old days. Looking back I could not believe that every morning I would have one huge cinnamon roll with ton of glaze drizzled over it. As I got older, I tried to be more healthier and stopped eating it altogether. I do miss it though.

Recently, I discovered a really nice recipe from 2mom and I tested it out today. It tasted great. It's not very sweet, and just perfect. I am calling it healthy apple cinnamon rolls. Check them out.

This was my breakfast treat.

3 apples (cut into small pieces)

Yeast Mixture:

-Put all the dough ingredients in the standing mixture, and add the yeast mixture. Mix everything together for 7 minutes. If the dough is too sticky, then add in a few TB of all purpose flour.
-Put some oil in a container and put the dough in the container.
-Let it sit for an hour and it will double the size.
Put it all together:

-Cut into 6 slices and do the same thing for the second piece of dough.
-Put the cinnamon rolls into a container and cover with food wrap.
-Let it sit on the counter for another 45 minutes and it will become bigger.

-In oven 350 degrees for 15-20 min or until golden brown
