Simple. Perfect. A downright tasty way to welcome Spring.

No Proofing, No Rising Perfect Cinnamon Rolls 

1 cup plain greek yogurt
3/4 cup sugar
3 eggs
1/2 cup light olive oil
1/2 cup milk
2 tablespoons baking powder
2 1/2 cups flour
2 cups white whole wheat flour
1 cup melted butter
2 cups brown sugar
4 tablespoons cinnamon

6 cups powdered sugar
1 stick butter
1/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

In a large bowl, whisk together the yogurt, sugar, eggs, oil, and milk. Add the baking powder and two cups of flour and stir together until a soft batter forms. Add the remaining flour and stir together until a soft dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a slightly floured surface and roll the dough to 1/2-3/4″ thick with a wooden rolling pin.

Spread the melted butter across the dough, generously sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon across the dough, then roll the dough into a long “snake.” Cut the snake into 1 1/2″ slices. Place slices onto a slightly greased baking sheet or cake pan and bake in a oven preheated to 325 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Remove and frost with icing.

Mix all ingredients together in an electric mixer until a smooth, creamy icing results. Spread atop rolls. Serve & enjoy!

Makes approximately 32 rolls.
