Multigrain Cinnamon Rolls Recipe
- 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
- 3/4 cup warm water (110° to 115°)
- 1/2 cup quick-cooking oats
- 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter, melted
- 1 large egg
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1-3/4 to 2-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
- 1 cup confectioners' sugar
- 6-1/2 teaspoons half-and-half cream
- 4-1/2 teaspoons butter, softened
- 1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the oats, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, butter, egg, salt and 1 cup all-purpose flour. Beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
- 2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place in a bowl coated with cooking spray, turning once to coat the top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.
- 3. Punch dough down. Roll into an 18x12-in. rectangle; spread with butter. Combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges.
- 4. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a short side; pinch seams to seal. Cut into 12 slices. Place cut side down in a 13x9-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes.
- 5. Bake at 375° for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. For icing, in a small bowl, beat the confectioners' sugar, cream and butter until smooth. Drizzle over warm rolls. Yield: 1 dozen.
Cinnamon Pull-Apart Loaf: Follow method for cinnamon rolls but do not roll up jelly-roll style. Instead, cut into thirty-six 3-in. x 2-in. rectangles. Make two stacks of 18 rectangles. Place, cut sides up, in a 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake at 375° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. Make glaze; drizzle over warm bread. Yield: 1 loaf (12 slices).

Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan to a wire rack. Make glaze; drizzle over warm bread. Yield: 1 ring (12 slices).

Reviews for Multigrain Cinnamon Rolls
"Oh & no need for butter to spread over filling use water instead. Works well."
"For best results use bread machine. Use oil in dough instead of butter. Can use bread flour. For filling use 1/2 brown & white sugar; can add extra cinnamon. Make sure to use loaf pan the is large enough so the cinnamon sugar mixture does not drip out of pan. Cover with foil if needed. Turn out on serving platter as soon as you take out of oven. Glaze can be omitted."
"I doubled the recipe. They were perfect! My kids loved them. We had them for our Easter morning breakfast. Will make time & time again!"
"A favourite with my family! We make the pull-apart loaf."
"Very good recipe! Unfortunately, the glaze seemed a little weird...I think I will use my own recipe next time. I also had trouble trying to get the jelly-roll part to hold up as I was slicing it. Overall, though, very good recipe! Will try again soon!"
"This is an absolutely fantastic recipe! Perfect every time! I made 9 batches this Christmas to give out as gifts. I made the dough in my bread machine and then followed the recipe for the cinnamon loafs. I split each batch into two and used the foil loaf pans, they fit perfectly once the loaf raised. I made 18 super easy, yummy and inexpensive gifts that everyone raved about!! Plus extra for my family :-)"
"Great recipe- kids and adults both love it. My son requests it often. He has no idea it's a healthier version."
"So good!! Best right out of the oven, very warm and gooey. So good, not too sweet."
"Incredible recipe. I doubled it and made 2 of the twisted rings for a party. It was so, so good, everyone loved them and I got many requests for the recipe. People were delighted to see oats and whole wheat flour in the recipe! I will never buy instant cinnamon rolls or a store-bought danish ever again."
"Love this recipe, I have make this a few times added chopped apple to the cinnamon rolls, very yummy. I also added ground flax seed for extra fiber."
"Followed the recipe, wouldn't change a thing. Wonderful"
"The first time I made the pull-apart loaf with no problems. I decided to try the cinnamon rolls and the dough would not rise. I think I will take others' advice and try using the bread machine next time."
"These were excellent! I used my KitchenAid to mix so I did not hand-mix. I also added 1/4 cup of ground flaxseed to give more fiber."
"Took me 2 tries-1st time I tried as directed: didn't rise. Second try, I did as others did and used my bread machine to make the dough--much better. I made the loaf, but I didn't glaze, just left as is. Tasty!"
"made the dough in my bread machine, let rise for an extra half hour. made the pull apart loaf, changed the half and half to fat free milk, and next time wil cover with foil. awesome recipe."
"Unbelievable! EZ, mouthwatering, tastes great even days later! DEFINATELY keeping this one!"
"I also made dough in bread machine. I used oil instead of butter in dough & omitted butter in glaze. Next time I may use walnuts & raisins."
"Kids loved them..."
"Definitely a keeper. I made the pull apart loaf and will try the foil trick next time as parts of mine got too brown."
"Made the dough in my bread machine on the dough setting and I was SO pleased. This tasted as good as any buns I have purchased."
"i didnt have any whole wheat flour so i used all all purpose flour and i added chopped pecans.halfway through cooking the pull apart loaf i covered it with foil because it was going to brown to much, in the end it turned out wonderful!"
"This is a hit! It was hard not to eat the whole pan in one sitting."
"Excellent! I will definitely make these again. The whole family raved about them!"
