Calories 346kcal


  • 1 cup warm eggnog 110F
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons active dry yeast 1/4-oz package
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 3 large eggs lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 to 4-1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons butter softened
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar or brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 cups fresh cranberries
  • ICING:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2-3 tablespoons eggnog


  • Place warm eggnog in the bowl of a large stand mixer, fitted with a dough hook. Dissolve yeast into warm eggnog and let stand 5 minutes until foamy. Mix in sugar, oil, eggs, salt, and 4 cups flour. Mix on medium speed until a soft dough forms and pulls away from sides of bowl, adding additional flour if needed.
  • Turn dough onto a floured surface. Knead until smooth and elastic, then place into a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Let rise in a warm place until doubled in size, about 1 hour.
  • Once dough has doubled, punch down and turn onto a floured surface. Roll into a 12x18 rectangle. Spread butter to within 1/2-in of edges and sprinkle sugar and cinnamon over butter, patting flat. Arrange cranberries over sugar.
  • Starting at the long end, tightly roll up cinnamon rolls and pinch edges to seal. Cut into 1/2 to 1-in rolls (you should have about 1 dozen) and place swirl side-up in a greased 12x17 jellyroll pan. Cover cinnamon rolls with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight OR up to 8 hours.
  • Remove cinnamon rolls from refrigerator and remove plastic wrap. Bake cinnamon rolls at 350F 20-25 minutes or until a light golden-brown. Cool several minutes on a wire cooling rack.
  • In a small bowl, whisk icing ingredients until smooth and drizzling consistency. Spread over warm cinnamon rolls. Let stand 5 minutes then serve cinnamon rolls warm.
