Buns, Chocolate, Cinnamon, Orange, Rolls
Raw brown sugar
Whole wheat flour
All purpose flour
Almond milk (unsweetened)
Extra virgin olive oil
Unsweetened cocoa powder
Raw brown sugar
One organic orange
To brush the rolls:
In a stand mixer's bowl, combine water, sugar and yeast. Activate the machine.
Gradually add flours and let incorporate.
Add applesauce, milk and oil and let combine for a few seconds until it comes together and it pulls away from the sides of the bowl.
Add salt then let knead for about 10 minutes.
Let it double for 1/1.5 hours a warm place.
NOTE: mine took only one hour to rise because I let it chill into my oven at 30°C (86°F).
Make the filling by combining all the ingredients into a small bowl. Let it chill in the fridge.
After the dough has doubled in size, transfer it to a floured surface. Roll it out into a 12 x 16 inches rectangle (40 x 30 cm)
Spread the filling over dough, leaving a ⅓ of an inch at the edges.
Roll the dough up, from the longer side.
Cut into 12 or 13 rolls.
TRICK: use a cotton yarn to "cut" the rolls.
Place the chocolate cinnamon rolls in a greased round 9 inch cake pan or square pan. Cover with plastic wrap and let rise again for 30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 175°C (350° F).
When the rolls have doubled, brush with almond milk using a cooking brush. Bake them for 30 minutes.
Optional: sprinkle with brown sugar.
Let them cool down and eat!
If you want to make a glaze: I've used icing sugar, a tiny bit of maple syrup and a small amount of water.
Store them in the fridge, into an airtight container.
To make homemade applesauce,
. As usual, I've used my small food processor

P.S. You can make the recipe by hand.
