Healthier Blueberry Cinnamon Rolls

 

 

Ingredients

 

For the Dough

2 cups organic milk (preferably raw milk – goat milk would be ideal)

1/2 cup melted coconut oil

1/2 cup coconut sugar (or raw honey)

2 1/4 tsp.  Active dry yeast

4-5 cups coconut flour

1/2 heaping tsp baking powder

Scant 1/2 tsp. aluminum free baking soda*

1 1/2 tsp. Himalayan or sea salt

 

For the Blueberry Filling

1 pint blueberries

3 tablespoons coconut sugar

2 teaspoons cornstarch

2-3 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

1 tsp. lemon zest

3/4 cup water

 

Additional Ingredients for Sprinkling

1 pint blueberries

2 Tbsp coconut sugar

4 Tbsp cinnamon

2 Tbsp coconut flour

Instructions

For the Blueberry Filling

In a small dutch pot, combine 1 pint of the blueberries, sugar and cornstarch. Stir in lemon juice, lemon zest and water. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until mixture begins to thicken slightly. Remove from heat and allow to cool.

For the Dough

1. Mix whole milk, vegetable oil and sugar in a pan. Scald to 150 degrees. Let cool until lukewarm (~45 minutes). Sprinkle in yeast and let sit. Then add 4 C flour, stir mixture together. Cover and let sit for one hour.

2. Add 1/2 cup of flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir mixture together. Add enough flour to make a semi-sticky dough.

3. Divide the dough in half. Sprinkle surface generously with flour and form into a rectangle, roll the dough thin, maintaining a rectangular shape. Spread half of the blueberry filling onto the dough. Sprinkle half of the additional blueberries for sprinkling on top. Roll the dough toward you. Pinch the seam to seal it. Cut rolls 3/4 to 1 inch thick and lay in greased dutch ovens. Repeat with other half of dough and blueberry filling.

4. Cover the rolls and let sit for 30 minutes.

5. Bake at 375 degrees for 18-20 minutes or until golden brown. Use 1 1/2 rings plus a couple of coals on top and 1 ring on the bottom.

6. Generously drizzle your favorite cream cheese frosting over warm rolls after they finish baking.

Makes 24-30 rolls.
