These Overnight Cranberry Cinnamon Rolls make the BEST Christmas morning breakfast!
Is there anything better in life than a fresh, homemade cinnamon roll? I’m going to say, no, there is not. And I’m going to try really hard to not post ALL THE PICTURES today, but fair warning: I might go overboard a little.
I gave traditional cinnamon rolls a holiday twist by adding cranberry sauce. The recipe will totally work if you don’t want to add it, but I thought it was the perfect way to make these extra-Christmasy AND I loved the way the tart cranberries balanced out the sweet cinnamon mixture. SO GOOD.
I love that the bulk of the work for these cinnamon rolls is done the night before. Then, they can bake while you are opening your presents and sipping on coffee.
These Overnight Cranberry Cinnamon Rolls are a once-a-year indulgence that I wouldn’t classify as “healthy,” but you all know I am all about balance. Sometimes, I eat kale salads, sometimes I eat energy balls, and I don’t feel bad when I face plant into a warm and gooey cinnamon roll. I hope you take the same approach to balanced eating.
That being said, I did use half unbleached all-purpose flour and half whole wheat pastry flour as well as coconut sugar instead of refined sugar. These are still a sugar bomb. Sorry. If you want to make them less so, I suggest using a natural, sugar-free sweetener such as one of these.
I don’t think you’re going to regret having this pan of delicious Overnight Cranberry Cinnamon Rolls on Christmas morning or whatever morning you choose to indulge. Please let me know what you think!Print
