How to Make Whole Wheat Cinnamon Rolls

Whenever I make cinnamon rolls I make enough for everyone in my family. That means enough for 3 different households. This Recipe makes 24-32 rolls depending on how thick you cut them so everyone can have enough for breakfast or just a snack. I grind my own wheat so it is fresh every time I bake but you can use whole wheat flour from a health food store.
