2 cups (500 ml) whole wheat flour
1 tsp. (5 ml) baking powder
1/4 tsp. (2 ml) salt
1/2 cup (125 ml) water or milk
1/4 cup (60 ml) canola oil
1 large egg
2 tbsp. (30 ml) honey
1 tsp. (5 ml) cinnamon
1/4 cup (60 ml) finely chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Cream cheese drizzle topping (optional):

1/4 cup (60 ml) light cream cheese

Top tip: Make drizzling easier by putting the sugar-free cream cheese topping in a zip-lock bag and snip off one corner to squeeze the mixture out.

Method...

Firstly, preheat your oven to 175 °C /350°F (adjust and lower slightly for fan assisted ovens).

To begin, get a large bowl and in it combine flour, baking powder and salt and in a small bowl to the side stir together the water, oil and egg. Add the small bowl's mix to the dry ingredients in the larger bowl and stir just until you have a soft dough.

On a lightly floured surface, roll or pat the dough into a rectangle that measures roughly 8 x14-inch. When rolled or patted out, drizzle with honey and sprinkle with cinnamon and nuts, if using.

Starting from a long edge of the flattened dough, begin to roll up (as if you were making a large Swiss roll) and pinch the edge to seal. Using a sharp knife or (even better) dental floss, slice half an inch thick and place slices cut side down on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with nonstick spray. The roll into buns, you should be able to make 24.

Place in the oven and bake for about 15 minutes. You will know they're ready when they're soft and springy to the touch.

If you're applying a topping, set aside and when cool drizzle the cream cheese topping across.

Once ready, store in a tightly covered container. Keep in the fridge if you have topped with the cream cheese drizzle.
