HOMEMADE LIGHT & CRISPY CINNAMON ROLL WAFFLES RECIPE
▶️ CINNAMON ROLLS INGREDIENTS - 2 Cups All Purpose Flour (plus a little more for dusting) - 1-2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour (just enough to form a soft dough, can also use 100% All Purpose Flour) - .25oz packet Rapid Rise Instant Yeast - 1 tsp Salt - ¾ Cup Warm Almond Milk (or milk of choice) - ½ Cup Warm Water - ⅓ Cup Coconut Oil - ¼ Cup Organic Pure Maple Syrup
▶️ CINNAMON ROLL FILLING INGREDIENTS - ½ Cup Unsalted Butter, softened - ¾ Coconut Sugar or Brown Sugar - 1 tsp Cinnamon
▶️ BUTTERCREAM INGREDIENTS - ¾ Cup Organic Cane Sugar (can sub coconut sugar but won’t dissolve as well) - 6-8 Tbsp Boiling Water - 2 Cups Unsalted Butter, softened - 1 Tbsp Vanilla Extract or Vanilla Bean Paste
▶️ RECIPE INSTRUCTIONS 1. Combine 2 cups of all-purpose flour, instant yeast, and salt in a large mixing bowl. Add warm milk, water, coconut oil, and maple syrup and blend until the mixture is combined and smooth. 2. Knead in whole wheat flour, a little at a time until a soft dough forms. Be careful not to add too much flour or the end result will be hard and dry. 3. Cover and let dough rest for 5 minutes or so. While you wait, prepare the cinnamon roll filling by combining the cinnamon with the coconut sugar. 4. Place dough on a large flat surface and roll into a rectangle. 5. Spread softened butter on top of the dough, and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture, spreading evenly to coat all the dough. 6. Roll the dough into a tight log. 7. Cut into 12 even rolls. You can cut off the ends and discard them, so you’re left with even-sized rolls. 8. Lay in a pan or on a flat surface, cover, and let rise for 30 minutes (If making overnight, place in the fridge, then take them out to rise in a warm place for 30-60 minutes or until puffy). 9. Turn on the waffle iron, and allow it to warm. Once ready, spray the waffle iron with nonstick spray, and place a cinnamon roll in the center of the iron. Press down to flatten the roll, and cook according to waffle iron instructions. 10. And voila! Fluffy, delicious cinnamon roll waffles.
▶️ HOW TO MAKE THE BUTTERCREAM 1. Combine sugar and boiling water, stirring until sugar is totally dissolved. 2. Blend butter with a mixer or by hand until creamy (the softer the easier). 3. Once smooth, blend in sugar mixture until well incorporated. Taste as you add, that way you can change the level of sweetness to your preference. 4. Finally add the vanilla, continuing to beat until fully incorporated and smooth.
