Golden Nutty Cinnamon Rolls


I had a vision to make a healthier version of cinnamon rolls based on a Golden Flax Bread recipe on the back of the Hodgson Mill Flax Seed box.  I have to say that these rolls turned out better than I expected. They are really good.

The dough is made in the bread machine, using the dough cycle. I did not add icing to them. I think it is good without it (and healthier). So here is the recipe.

Dough ingredients
7/8 cup water
2 T butter
3T molasses
2 T flax seed
2 cups all purpose or bread flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 1/2 T non-fat dry milk
1 1/2 t bread machine yeast

Roll Filling
2 T butter, melted
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/3 cup brown (or white) sugar
1-2 t cinnamon

Add the dough ingredients to bread machine according to manufacture's direction and use the dough setting.

Once the dough is done, roll out into about 12 by 8 inch rectangle. Coat with the melted butter, combine the sugar and cinnamon and add to the dough, cover with the nuts. Roll up from the long end and pinch ends. Cut into 12 equal pieces and place in 9 inch square pan, Let rise until double in size. (30-60 minutes) Bake in 375 degree oven for about 20 minutes or until golden brown.
