Low Sodium Cinnamon Rolls

Updated: Jan 24, 2022

You will often find a pan of these cinnamon rolls cooling on the counter. I love them and the bread machine takes out most of the work for me. I also love freezing them after cutting them so I can pull some out, let them rise overnight in the fridge and pop them in the oven Saturday morning.


And with only 12mg of sodium, they make a sweet way to start a loso day!



Ingredients

Dough

  • 1 cup water heated to 120° F

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1 egg

  • 1/4 cup sugar

  • 3 teaspoons active dry yeast

  • 3 cups AP flour

Filling

  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened

  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • Combine cinnamon and sugar and mix well. Set aside.

Glaze

  • 1 cup powder sugar

  • 2 tablespoons water

  • 1/4 teaspoon extract of your choice, have fun with the flavors.

  • Mix ingredients until smooth

Instructions

Bread Maker

  1. Place ingredient in the recommended order, usually liquids first.

  2. Run on the dough cycle.

  3. On a lightly floured surface, press dough into a large rectangle, roughly 9 inches on the shorter side.

  4. Spread the butter across the entire surface of the dough.

  5. Sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar mix, making sure in covers the whole surface.

  6. Starting on one of the short ends, roll tightly. Pinch the seam closed.

  7. Cut into 9 pieces using a very sharp knife or dental floss (my favorite method).

  8. Place a greased or lined baking sheet, 2 inches a part and cover. Let rise another 30 minutes or so. Preheat your oven to 375° F.

  9. Bake for 20-30 minutes, until nice and golden brown

Stand Mixer

  1. Combine water, sugar and yeast. Yeast should foam within a few minutes. If not, you need new yeast.

  2. Add the rest of the ingredients and knead using the dough hook, until the dough no longer sticks to the sides.

  3. Remove the dough and grease the sides of the bowl.

  4. Replace the dough, cover and let rise in a warm spot (about 85° F is a good temp) until doubled.

  5. Punch down dough.

  6. On a lightly floured surface, press dough into a large rectangle, roughly 9 inches on the shorter side.

  7. Spread the butter across the entire surface of the dough.

  8. Sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar mix, making sure in covers the whole surface.

  9. Starting on one of the short ends, roll tightly. Pinch the seam closed.

  10. Cut into 9 pieces using a very sharp knife or dental floss (my favorite method).

  11. Place a greased or lined baking sheet, 2 inches a part and cover. Let rise another 30 minutes or so. Preheat your oven to 375° F.
