Chocolate Honey Rolls

Serves: 6

Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend!! We had some absolutely beautiful weather here in NJ after the monsoon that took place on Friday! ? I finally started feeling a bit better on Saturday, which was great! I got myself to the gym to do some light elliptical and then thought, “Am I crazy? It is gorgeous outside!” so I left and went walking in the park! It was the perfect way to get some fresh air and exercise without pushing myself too hard! Seeing all the runners did make me jealous though! ?

Today I am sharing with you a very delicious recipe! About a month ago the Recipe Reduxers were given an (optional) challenge to create some delicious recipes using honey for the National Honey Board. Of course, I got really excited and jumped right into making some recipes! Two to be exact! The other I will be sharing later this week! The challenge was to use honey in a recipe to show how it can be used in any dish, sweet, savory, salty, bitter, etc. Of course, you know I would go the sweet route ?

Some of the great benefits or ways to use honey include:

1) Adds balance to a dish

2) Helps to retain freshness and moisture

3) Helps to balance out the bitterness of gluten free flours (which is what it did here!) ?

4) Mixes well to create sauces, dressings and marinades

5) Is a great sugar substitute!

6) Has an amazing flavor! :)

I love adding it to smoothies or a meal right after a workout to get in some of those quick simple sugars! Or to yummy recipes like this! :) I hope you enjoy!

The Honey Board also has a website with tons of great information on it! If you’d like to check it out, click here!

These rolls are simply out of this world!! They have just the right amount of chocolate flavor and the perfect sweetness from the honey! They taste like something from a decadent bakery, but they are 100% healthy! They reminded me of these cinnamon swirls I used to eat for breakfast as a kid! They may have lasted less than 24 hours in my house ?
