cook // easy cinnamon scrolls

Turn away paleo-people!

Let me tell you of days gone by, when grandma has some sort of delicious treat awaiting me when I arrived home from school S T A R V I N G……..Always hungry, like I had never been fed before.

Nothing has changed, except now I have FOUR girls begging me for food, BEFORE they even say “Hi Mum, how was YOUR day?” (do any kids do that, or am I dreaming an unimaginable dream!).


I have cooked, and shared these many times over here, and have been asked for the recipe countless more times! Ask no more, you too, can enjoy the sweet sticky easy cinnamon scroll after school delight!

Prepare to get messy!

Gather the ingredients:

  • SR Flour
  • greek yoghurt (I used the sweet version…)
  • melted butter
  • raw sugar
  • cinnamon

NOTE – there are no set quantities!

  1. pre-heat the oven to 160’C (fan-forced)

  2. combine approx. 3 cups flour and 2 cups yoghurt on your bench (it gets messy – but the kids love it!)

  2. re-flour the bench – LOTS!

  3. wrestle with, and roll dough until approx. 1/2-1cm thick

  4. slice into wheels
