This traditional recipe for whole wheat cinnamon rolls are whole grain but sure don’t taste that way. This is an old family recipe that I've posted for longevity purposes.

For the Rolls

Filling Mixture



  • In a 2 cup glass measuring cup, combine warm water, 1 tsp honey and 2 packages yeast and stir until combined.
  • In a large mixing bowl combine oil, honey, salt, eggs, 1 cup water, 1 cup spelt flour and 1 cup whole wheat flour. Beat for 5 minutes on low speed.
  • Add all remaining flour to the mixing bowl and beat for an additional 5 minutes. If consistency is too thin/sticky add flour 1/2 cup at a time until dough remains slightly sticky but not runny.
  • Cover with a cloth and set in a warm place to rise for 1 hour to 90 minutes until doubled in size
  • Once dough is ready, prepare your glass baking pans by greasing with coconut oil or butter.
  • In a small glass measuring cup, melt butter and mix in the cinnamon bark oil. Paint this on the dough using a pastry brush. Then drizzle with honey and shake on cinnamon. Top with raisins.
  • Roll up dough and cut into 2­3 inch pieces. Place in greased 9x13 glass baking pan and cover to let rise in a warm spot for 60 - ­90 minutes.
  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  • Bake for 30 - ­45 minutes until golden brown.
  • While rolls are cooling, prepare icing by whipping the ingredients in your blender. Ice rolls after cooled for 10­ - 15 minutes and enjoy!


You can add dried cranberries and/or nuts to change up the recipe. If you are looking for a low sugar option, you might consider omitting the frosting or drizzling very lightly.
