Organic Cinnamon Rolls & Dark Chocolate Honey Crescent Rolls

Warning: Contains Wheat. Phew. Now that we have that out of the way, it’s story time. Did you know there are several people in the house that can have wheat? I feel bad for them sometimes because of the process of how I do things, they “miss out” on foods they would like to have, such as cinnamon rolls. I try to tell myself they’re only missing sugar and fat, so it’s not a big deal… but it is. I say that as a reminder for those of you in a mixed allergen household, every so often, if it’s safe, allow everyone to have a treat that’s OK for them. In the case of this snack, mister low/no sugar had to have the smallest one (which I made for him). Kid Two had an ice cream treat instead. For as hard as you will strive to make everyone happy on the same diet, let’s be honest, it’s a tall order.

With that in mind, it’s not very often that I buy crescent rolls anymore, as I haven’t been able to find something similar for our kid that’s allergic to wheat. Well, that and I haven’t mastered using yeast yet. I’m also not in the business of torturing children, and making them watch someone else eat something they can’t have. Let’s be honest, a lot of people would be willing to risk an allergic reaction for delicious cinnamon rolls.

Yet, with all of that, there’s one even BIGGER reason I bought these. They’re organic now!!! Previously, this brand was an all natural brand. Now, it’s officially organic, and that gives me a lot of hope for using them for those that can have wheat, especially Kid Three who has to avoid additives, etc. I will not however give up on trying to make yeast work for us. I think it would be a great addition to the things we make.

Allergy Status: Dairy Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, Peanut Free, Vegan
I get the feeling these are made in a shared facility because it says “may contain traces of milk” on the label. If you have a dairy allergy, please contact the company first so you can assess if these are safe for you.I made the kids two types of cinnamon rolls. There was the traditional Cinnamon Roll, and the fancy Dark Chocolate Honey Roll. Let’s get started!

Dark Chocolate Honey Rolls
1 pack Organic Crescent Rolls
Filling:

1 TBSP Raw Organic Cacao
3 TBSP Organic Sugar
1/4 tsp Raw Organic Ground Vanilla

Glaze:
2 ounces Raw Organic Honey (a runny variety)
1/8 tsp Raw Organic Ground Vanilla

 

Traditional Cinnamon Rolls
1 pack Organic Crescent Rolls
Filling:
2 TBSP Organic Sugar
1 tsp Organic Ground Cinnamon
1/8 tsp Raw Organic Ground Vanilla
2 dashes Organic Ground Nutmeg

Glaze:
7 TBSP Organic Powdered Sugar +2 +1
1/4 tsp Raw Organic Ground Vanilla
2 tsp Water

 

Instructions for Both

About the raw vanilla: These recipes use ground vanilla rather than an extract. I did this to keep the filling dry. However, I know expensive raw vanilla is. Feel free to experiment with an extract instead. Start with a small amount and work your way up. Try to avoid having a filling that’s very liquidy.

Start by mixing the filling ingredients in a small prep bowl. I use a fork to mix everything together well. Next, roll out your crescent rolls, but don’t break them apart. Keeping it all together makes the re-rolling and cutting much easier. Once rolled out, generously apply the filling mixture to the dough, then roll it back up as if it’s fresh from the can. Cut the dough into even sizes. You should be able to comfortably get 6 slices per can. Place the slices next to each other on a baking tray lined with parchment paper, and bake at 375 for 18 minutes.

While the dough is baking, mix your glaze ingredients together. I put the glaze in a disposable decorator’s bag so I could pipe it on picture perfect. Don’t be afraid to skip the bag and drizzle the glaze right on. top.

Allow the crescent rolls to cool just a little before adding the glaze. If you want melted glaze, put it on right away. Enjoy!

As a product review, I can share that everyone loved these. The kids had a house full of guests over when these were served, and they were truly a hit. Some of the kids liked the Dark Chocolate Rolls better than the Traditional Rolls. That was a huge surprise! I will definitely be buying these again when the need arises, as they’re priced well for what they are, and they’re very easy to use.

Enjoy the pictures which show the methods well.
