Slow-Cooker Cinnamon Roll

“Come home to the heavenly aroma of fresh-baked cinnamon rolls! This better-for-you version tastes just as decadent as a regular cinnamon roll, but it smartly sneaks in some whole grains.” —Nick Iverson, Denver, Colorado

  1. Dissolve yeast in warm water. Add next 6 ingredients plus 1 cup all-purpose flour. Beat on medium speed until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough (dough will be sticky).
  2. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, 6-8 minutes. Roll into an 18x12-in. rectangle. For filling, spread dough with butter, then combine sugar and cinnamon; sprinkle over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges.
  3. Roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side; pinch seam to seal. Cut crosswise in half to form 2 rolls. Place rolls side by side; pinch top ends together to seal. Using a sharp knife, cut rolls lengthwise in half; loosely twist strips around each other. Pinch bottom ends together to seal. Shape into a coil; place on parchment. Transfer to a 6-qt. slow cooker. Let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.
  4. Cook, covered, on low until bread is lightly browned, 3-1/2 to 4 hours. Remove from slow cooker and cool slightly. Beat icing ingredients until smooth. Spread over warm roll.
