Cinnamon Rolls

Lately I’m just craving sweets since my diet has come to an end. I love baking or creating the sweets I eat myself though because that way I still know which ingredients were used like where the eggs came from, no wheat flour etc..

These are clearly not healthy and I don’t want to tell you the calories… BUT they taste absolutely amazing!



  • 1000g spelt flour
  • 7 g (1 packet) dry yeast
  • 1 tbsp liquid honey
  • 1 tsp fine salt
  • Oliveoil


  • 100 g almonds
  • 100 g hazelnuts
  • 200 g butter (solid)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon (or more lol)
  • 5 tbsp liquid honey
  • 20 g sugar


Using a cuisinart or hand mixer mix all the ingredients for the dough into a bowl except the oil. Gradually add about 600 ml of water and form into a flexible dough. 
Lay the dough on a big carving board covered with flour and knead for a couple minutes. 
Lay the dough into a lightly oiled bowl and let it prove for about 30 min. covered with a towel. The dough should have doubled his size after 30 min.

Preheat the oven to 180 ° C/ 356 ° F. 
Spread the nuts on a baking dish and set it into the oven for 6–8 min and roast them gold brown.

Mix 150 g butter with cinnamon with the handmixer until small flakes appear. Take the nuts out of the oven. Either you chop them in a towel hitting it against the counter or you use the mixer on ice crush mode.

Again spread flour on the carving board. Lay the dough on it and roll it to a about 1 cm/0,4 inch thick rectangle. Should have the size of about 50 x 60 cm/ 20 x 24 inches.

Spread the butter — cinnamon mixture on it using a spoon. Drizzle the honey over it and then add the nuts.

Starting at the long end, roll the dough into a thick sausage and cut it into about 3 cm/ 1,2 inch thick slices.

Grease a 20 x 30 cm big pan with the rest of the butter and lay the cinnamon rolls in it. Let the cinnamon rolls prove for another 20–40 min. covered with a towel.

Before you put the rolls in the oven sprinkle sugar and more cinnamon on them.

Bake for 25 minutes.
