  1. Wow, this looks so good, Ilona! I love the photo of the dough too..it looks like fluffy pillows! So beautiful and I like to make as much from scratch too. You never know what all is in processed stuff, plus homemade always tastes better!

  2. Those are beautiful!! They look absolutely delicious and I wouldn’t mind waking up to these!
    I agree with you too… I make it fresh whenever I can because I know what goes into it – especially pancakes and waffles! Plus I make an extra batch so that I can freeze them and toast them when I need them!

  3. We try to eat unprocessed in our household too. I love cinnamon rolls but have never attempted them … I think I will start with your cinnamon breadsticks first and work my way up. Thank you for the recipe. Can’t wait to try it.

  4. Cinnamon is the way to my heart so these would basically be LIFE to me. Yum and beautiful photos my dear! XX Katie

  5. These look so good that I just want to reach into my screen and steal one!
    I make my boys eggs and toast every day before school, so at the weekend they like to have a sweet breakfast. These would be utterly perfect!!!
    I can’t wait to try them.
    Pinning!

  6. My girls would love these! They would be great for a weekend breakfast – (or a weekday if I get up early enough 🙂 ). Will try them soon 🙂

  7. You make this look so super easy. I have not had a good go with making yeasted bread. I will have to try your method!
