Recipes Tips:

For this recipe, one of the biggest things to make it successful is making sure the dough is the right consistency. Try to pick out a yogurt that isn’t super runny. I like the Fage plain 2% yogurt! If your yogurt is runny, add 1/4 cup more oat flour.

Also when you roll out the dough, add extra flour on the parchment paper to make sure the maple pecan cinnamon rolls don’t stick. I just used extra oat flour.
