Crisp fall weather, warm cozy sweaters and cinnamon rolls just seem to go hand in hand. It’s like the perfect day. All I need is a hot mug of fresh coffee and I can kick back and close my eyes in bliss.
The rolls themselves require almost no kneading AND no yeast. Don’t get me wrong..I love a good yeasted bread. In fact, I find it so soothing to knead but seriously sometimes you just want rolls that are easy, fast and ready to roll in minutes. (Get it, ready to ROLL..?! aahh ok..lame)
I used spelled flour for these to not only give them a kick in the nutrition department but also just because I love the more nutty taste of spelled.* These are a bit denser but I like that in the cooler days. They just have more of a hearty texture that pairs so well against the light crisp apples. It’s almost like a little pie all rolled up. Except with none of the crazy amounts of sugar.
(*Does anyone else think of Austin Powers when you hear the word, “nutty”, or is that just me?)
