Banana Bread Maple Cinnamon Rolls

I’m on the hunt for a delicious recipe for breakfast morning on Christmas and decided to do some testing. This is the first recipe I’d tried and it was really good. Everyone loved the cinnamon rolls and the banana made them different and unique….plus I’m always looking for a way to use up over-ripe bananas. The maple glaze is amazing too!

Homemade cinnamon rolls are fairly easy to make – they take a little time and patience, but trust me… it’s so worth it!

Banana Bread Maple Cinnamon Rolls | Join Us, Pull up a Chair

1/2 cup whole milk
1/4 cup unsalted butter
2 Tbsp maple syrup
2 1/4 tsp yeast (one packet)
3 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
2 large bananas, mashed
1 tsp ground cinnamon

Filling:
1/3 cup brown sugar
3 Tbsp maple syrup
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened at room temperature

Glaze:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 Tbsp vanilla
1-2 Tbsp maple syrup
1 Tbsp milk

In a small bowl, heat the milk and butter to 110 degrees. Pour into a bowl of a stand mixer and add in the syrup and yeast. Whisk together. Allow to sit until the yeast starts to blossom. Add two cups of flour, salt, bananas and cinnamon to the bowl and mix well. Add the remaining flour 1/2 cups at a time until the dough starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl. Continue to knead for 5 minutes or until no dough is sticking to the sides of the bowl. Transfer to a greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap. Allow the dough to rise until it’s doubled in size. When the dough is ready, make the filling. Mix together all the filling ingredients except the butter in a small bowl.

Sprinkle flour on a flat surface and roll out the dough into a 12×9 rectangle. Evenly spread the softened butter onto the dough, leaving 1/2 inch edge. Sprinkle the maple cinnamon filling mixture over top. Roll up the dough from the long edge and pinch the seam to seal. Cut the dough into 12 equal rolls and place cut-sized down in a round cake pan. Cover and let the dough rise for a second time if you’re planning to bake the same day; otherwise place overnight in the refrigerator.

When you’re ready to bake the rolls, allow them to warm to room temperature. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes for until browned and cooked through. Remove and let rest 5 minutes. In a small bowl, whisk together the glaze ingredients until it is to your preferred consistency. Pour over top of the rolls and serve.
