0/5 (1)


  • Dough
  • tick1 ½ cups (190g) Chantal Organics White flour
  • tick1 cup (125g) Chantal Organics White Spelt Flour
  • tick1 sachet (8g) of rapid rise (fast action) yeast
  • tick1⁄4 tsp salt
  • tick1 cup (250g) milk
  • tick3 tbsp (30g) coconut sugar
  • tick30g butter
  • Filling
  • tick3 tbsp (50g) Chantal Organics Black Tahini
  • tick1⁄3 cup (60g) coconut sugar
  • tick1⁄4 cup (85g) date or pure maple syrup
  • tick2 tsp cinnamon
  • Glaze
  • tick1 cup (160g) icing sugar
  • tick1 tbsp water
  • tick1 tsp vanilla essence


  • Step 1.

    Prepare the filling by combining all the ingredients together in a small mixing bowl, then set aside.

  • Step 2.

    Heat the milk and sugar in a small pan (or microwave) until just warm. Remove from heat, add the butter and leave to melt.

  • Step 3.

    Sift the flours and salt into a large mixing bowl, add the yeast and mix until combined.

  • Step 4.

    Add the tepid milk & butter mixture to the dry ingredients and mix until it forms a dough, either by hand or using the hook attachment on a stand mixer.

  • Step 5.

    Knead the dough for approximately 10 minutes, adding more flour as needed, until the dough becomes smooth and elastic, and when you push a finger into the side it bounces back.

  • Step 6.

    Allow the dough to rest for 10 minutes, while you clean up and line a 20cm baking pan with baking paper.

  • Step 7.

    Roll the dough out on a floured surface into a rectangle approximately 30cm x 20 cm. Spread the tahini filling over the dough, then roll up the dough starting from the longest side.

  • Step 8.

    Use a sharp knife or dental floss to cut the dough into equal pieces. Place the cinnamon rolls into the prepared baking tray and set aside in a warm place until doubled in size (approximately 30 minutes). Preheat oven to 180ºC fan bake.

  • Step 9.

    Bake the cinnamon rolls in the centre of the oven for approximately 20 minutes, or until the rolls have risen nicely and turned a golden brown.

  • Step 10.

    Allow the buns to cool while preparing the glaze by combining all the ingredients in a small mixing bowl. Drizzle buns generously with the glaze, and serve.
