For Dough:

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 stick butter softened
  • 3/4 to 1 cup milk

For Filling:

  • Butter
  • Brown Sugar
  • Cinnamon

For Icing:

  • 3 tablespoons butter softened
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 tablespoons cream cheese softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Milk


  • Mix together the dough dry ingredients.
  • Then cut in the butter.
  • Add milk until the dough is a bit sticky.
  • Put on a floured surface and roll out.
  • Spread filling on the on the rolled out dough. (Butter first, then sugar, then cinnamon.)
  • Use as much or as little as you want.
  • Roll up and slice into rolls.
  • Bake in a 375 degree oven for about 25 minutes, less if you are using white flour.
  • You can bake them on a cookie sheet, 9×13 casserole pan, or round cake pan. If you are using 100% wheat flour it is better to use a pan with sides as the rolls have a tendency to spread out a little more.
  • While rolls are baking, mix together butter and cream cheese.
  • Then add powdered sugar and vanilla.
  • Add milk until you get a consistency that can be drizzled on the cinnamon rolls.
  • When the rolls are finished drizzle with frosting.


Editor’s note: These do not taste like Cinnabon cinnamon rolls. They are more biscuit like in taste, but they are delicious!
