Banana Nut Cinnamon Rolls

This was a Facebook find that I just had to try.  See the bottom of this post for a link to the recipe.


The banana really makes this a moist and delightfully delicious twist on a classic cinnamon roll.




Get all your dry ingredients into a bowl and make a well for the wet ingredients.



Once it begins to form a dough, you are ready for some gently kneading.


using your hands or a rolling pin, form into some semblance of a rectangle.



Pour on some of the melted butter and spread around.  Then top with the cinnamon and brown sugar mixture.  I added the chopped walnuts to this when making.  Now we really like cinnamon, so we pretty much tripled the amount and added a extra brown sugar for sweetness



Once spread out and lightly packed down, begin to roll up.



Cut into equal sized slices and place in a baking dish.  I used a cast iron frying pan, but you can use any type of pan you would like.  Since the ends usually get the shaft when it comes to filling, I placed those in the middle and placed the others around them.



I then topped with more melted butter and some more of the cinnamon, sugar, nut mixture.  Remember how much we love cinnamon.



Bake from 18 – 20 minutes at 400ºF.  While they are baking you can make up the cream cheese frosting.  Since we had some leftover cinnamon, sugar, nut mixture, I also added that to the frosting.



Dish and top with the cream cheese frosting.
