Cinnamon Buns, Delicious!

Now that we are done with the Food Stamp Challenge I decided that we would have some indulgence for breakfast and we could also have them for dessert.  I wanted to find a new recipe that was pretty quick – that meant no rising – so no yeast.  I found a great recipe at Half Baked Harvest.  I made it a little more healthy than the original recipe, and they turned out fantastically!  Stella told me that I needed to make these more often!

3. Turn out onto a heavily floured surface (if there is not enough flour the dough will stick to the counter when you are trying to roll the dough into a log). Roll the dough into an a rectangle about 1/4th inch thick. If the dough sticks to the rolling pin add more a sprinkle more of flour, but try and add as little flour as you can.
