Quick Honey and Yogurt Glazed Cinnamon Rolls + Friday Shares

On the weekends, my husband and I try to take our dogs for a long walk on both Saturday and Sunday. Last Saturday was really rainy so there was no walking or much of anything else (we stayed home and watched 3 movies instead!), but on Sunday we were excited to hit our favorite trail. It was a gorgeous day with an decidely fall-ish chill in the air; the foliage is pretty spectacular this time of year so it was great to be outside in the midst of it.

Before we left, I made some cinnamon rolls for us to eat on the way and for my kids to munch on once they got up (there seems to be no convincing our teenagers to join us on our weekend walks these days as they’d rather sleep in…surprise, surprise). I wasn’t really looking for gooey, super sweet cinnamon rolls; rather, I wanted something satisfying, but not too decadent. These honey and greek yogurt glazed cinnamon rolls were perfect.

I used Jovial Organic Einkorn Flour in the dough, and added honey both to the dough and the glaze.

The brown sugar filling can be doubled if you are looking for a sweeter treat.
