Pumpkin Cinnamon Buns

November 4, 2017


With everything pumpkin season in the air this blog jumped on the band wagon to try out a new recipe. This cinnamon bun is stuffed with a delicious pumpkin filling that will get your pumpkin spice fix for mornings to come. Topped with a crunchy granola, those good ol' fashioned cinnamon buns are going to have to take the sidelines for a few. 


I used canned pumpkin in this recipe for ease but it's totally fine to roast off fresh pumpkin, especially those sitting around after Halloween.

3. Form dough into a ball and coat with olive oil. Cover and let rise for 1 hour in a warm area.
4. For the pumpkin stuffing, combine all ingredients. 
5. Roll out the dough into a large rectangle about 1/4" thick. 

6. Evenly spread the pumpkin filling over the dough and then roll the dough from the longest end. Pinch the seam shut and cut 1" thick buns.
