Dessert

Whole-Wheat Chocolate Cinnamon Buns

Yes these are delicious 🙂

I could toast one of these up every day for a dessert & be extremely satisfied. These Cinnamon Buns are chocolaty, soft, healthy & sweet tooth satisfying.

One thing that makes this dessert healthier is that they are made with organic sprouted whole wheat flour.

I love sprouted grains because sprouting changes the composition of the resulting flour. It results in the creation of a vegetable & not a starch! There are many benefits to eating a sprouted grain over a non-sprouted.

So give these a try! I promise you & anyone you share them with won’t be disappointed 🙂 Who would pass up a healthier, warm chocolaty pastry???

Ingredients

  • 3 C sprouted whole wheat flour + extra for dusting
  • 1 1/4 C warm water
  • 1/2 C + 2 T raw honey or pure maple syrup
  • 1/2 C chopped pistachios, optional*
  • 2 oz vegan chocolate, melted
  • 2 T coconut oil, melted
  • 2 T ground cinnamon
  • 2 1/2 tsp yeast
  • 1 tsp pink himalayan salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

*I wanted to add these to my buns but didn’t have any on hand.

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350F.
  2. Spray an 8×8 pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. In a small blow mix the yeast, water & 2 T of your honey or maple syrup.
  4. Wait 5 minutes for the yeast to activate.
  5. In a large bowl add your flour, salt, & yeast mixture. Start kneading with your hands or with your mixer’s dough hook.
  6. Adjust water/flour as needed. Your dough should be soft but not sticky.
  7. Knead the dough with your hands for an extra minute & then let sit for 20 minutes.
  8. In a medium sized bowl add the rest of your honey or maple syrup, melted chocolate, melted coconut oil, cinnamon & vanilla. Whisk until combined. Fold in your nuts if using.
  9. Split your dough into 3 small balls. Roll each with a rolling pin until flat.
  10. Distribute & spread your chocolate filling on each flat.
  11. Fold each flat in half & cut in half lengthwise. Now twist each piece up into a bun.
  12. Place each bun next to each other in your pan.
  13. Bake for 30 minutes.
  14. Enjoy warm right out of the oven after slightly cooled; or if eating later toast in your toaster oven for 1-2 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
