Oatmeal Peach Roll-ups

In an effort to add some nutritional goodness to sweet rolls, I came up with this healthier alternative to the all white flour sweet dough.  Oatmeal and oat bran give this dough more nutritional value and a more dense dough but not rock hard or heavy.  Instead of a cinnamon roll I got inspired from another roll I saw to put peach preserves in the middle with a touch of cinnamon sugar. When they come out of the oven let them cool long enough to put a light glaze on top. The results are lightly sweet and delicious, its like not having to put jelly on your roll because it’s already there :).

Oatmeal Peach Roll-ups

1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup water
1/8 cup sugar
1 tsp. salt
1/8 cup oil
1 pkg. yeast or 2 1/4 tsps.
1/2 cup  uncooked quick oatmeal
1/8 cup oat bran or wheat bran
1  3/4 to 2 1/4 cups of all purpose flour
1 eggs
4 oz. of peach preserves or your favorite
cinnamon and sugar
1 cup powdered sugar
1-2 T. milk


  • heat water  in small bowl to warm about 30 sec. in microwave and add the yeast to the water with a teaspoon of sugar, set aside and let bubble up
  • in another small bowl heat milk, oil , sugar and salt together until very warm about 1 minute in microwave, stir until sugar and salt dissolve.
  • in a large mixing bowl add all wet ingredients, oatmeal, bran and 1 3/4 cups of flour use the bread hook and turn on mixer to low or mix by hand.  If mixing by hand add the flour 1/2 cup at a time so it won’t be so difficult to work with.
  • knead dough with mixer until all is combined well and the dough is no longer sticking to the sides of the bowl
  • in a medium large bowl spray with cooking spray and put dough in the bowl rolling around to cover dough with cooking spray oil, cover dough with a light kitchen towel or plastic wrap sprayed with cooking oil.
  • let rise in a warm place until double in size about 1 1/2 hours.

  • when dough has risen long enough punch down in center and roll out on a lightly floured surface into a rectangle about 1/4 in. thick.
  • spread the peach preserves over the top of dough and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar
  • roll up starting from the long side
  • cut into 2 in. rolls with dental floss (tips on making rolls with filling check here)spray
  • spray a muffin pan or a pan with sides with cooking spray and put each roll into the pan
  • let rise until double

  • ready to pop into the oven.
  • bake at 375 degrees for 15 min. on the lowest rack
  • let cool 15 min. and transfer to a plate
  • mix the powdered sugar and milk together in small bowl and drizzle over the top

Makes about 18 rolls. ENJOY!

I love the flavor oats gives to baked goods! These look every bit as delicious as a standard cinnamon roll, if not better! The peach preserves are scrumptious too.

Those are beautiful and what a terrific idea to use peach preserves in place of the usual sugar filling! Yeast rolls/bread are amazingly adaptable to healthy substitutions and are one of the few things I make that don't have to have a ton of fat to make them good. Now if I could just stop myself from slathering them with butter. 😉
