Healthy Cinnamon Swirl Breakfast Bread

Author: Juli


  • 20 g fresh yeast
  • 1 cup milk I used Cashew Milk
  • 4 cups spelt flour
  • 2 medium eggs
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 3 T coconut butter
  • 3 T coconut oil
  • 1/4 cup cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 cup spelt flour to dust the countertop
  • 1 egg yolk to coat the bread


  • Heat the oven to 50° C (120° F)
  • Dissolve the yeast in the milk and put in the oven for 10 min
  • Give all the dry ingredients in a bowl and add the yeast-milk mixture
  • With a fork stir through the ingredients until you have a sticky dough
  • Now cover the bowl with a clean dish towel and put in the oven for another 10 min
  • Give all the ingredients for the filling in a small bowl and mix everything well together. This works best with a fork
  • Take the dough from the oven and add a little flour and knead the dough with the ball of your hand until you have a smooth dough ball
  • Divide the dough in three equal part and put two parts aside. Roll your piece of dough onto a flat, floured surface until it's about 40 x 20 cm. It should still be about 1/2 cm thick. Make sure it doesn't stick to the surface
  • Now take 1/3 of the filling and cover the dough with it
  • Now roll up the long side of the dough so that you have a long thick dough roll. Repeat with the other two parts.
  • Now braid the three pieces together and place in a loaf pan lined with baking parchment
  • Coat the braided bread with the egg yolk
  • Place the bread on a baking rack and bake in the over for about 20 minutes at 180º C


Depending on the stickiness of the dough you might have to add more flour. Don't calculate too little.
You can store it in an airtight container for 4-5 days
Serve with Cream Cheese Spread. Just mix together some full fat cream cheese, cinnamon and maple syrup. It's divine!
Don't be afraid of yeast! There are only two rules: Keep it warm but not too warm (50°C at the highest until you bake it) and treat in kindly - aka careful but vigorously kneading is a must. Be brave! You can all do this! I promise!
