Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls

These Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls are soft, sweet, and gooey with a deliciously nutty whole-grain flavor.

They’re filled with brown sugar and cinnamon, then topped with a homemade cream cheese frosting that is out of this world.


– Sugar – Dry Yeast – Butter – Eggs – Wheat Flour – Cinnamon

In the bowl of a stand mixer, add the warm water, sugar and yeast and stir well. Let the mixture sit for 5-10 minutes until it gets bubbly and activates the yeast.


Add the melted butter, eggs, salt, and 3 cups of whole wheat flour to the yeast mixture, then mix on low using the bread hook for 2 minutes, or until everything is well-mixed.


Add an additional 2.5 cups of flour, then stir on low to combine.


Add up to 1 cup more flour slowly, only until the dough pulls away from the edges of the bowl.


Turn off the mixer and cover the bowl with a kitchen towel. Let the dough rest in a warm place for about 30 minutes, or until doubled in size.
