Sprouted Spelt Cinnamon Pull-Apart Bread

The smell of freshly baked bread makes a house a home. Add in a little cinnamon, some coconut palm sugar and a beautiful autumn afternoon and you’ve got paradise.

This bread makes a delectable treat with some warm tea. Try some variations to the classic like cranberry orange, and apple pecan.


1 cup warm water
1/3 cup coconut palm sugar
1 Tbsp yeast
1 tsp salt
1/8 cup coconut oil or olive oil
2 1/2 cups One Degree Organics Sprouted Spelt Flour

Coconut palm sugar


Mix warm water, sugar and yeast in a mixing bowl and let stand until frothy. Add salt, oil and 1 cup of the sprouted spelt flour and mix well until incorporated. Continue adding flour a little at a time until dough reaches proper consistency. The dough will be slightly sticky. Shape dough into a round, smooth shape and put in an oiled bowl, cover and let rise in a warm spot until it doubles in size.

Remove dough from the bowl and roll it out on a lightly floured surface. Spread with coconut palm sugar and cinnamon.

Slice the dough in long strips about 2 1/2 inches wide. Stack the strips on top of each other to form one long stack of strips.

Using a sharp knife, slice the long stack approximately every 3 inches. Put all the stacks on top of each other to form a tower of sorts. Transfer to a lightly oiled bread pan. The loaf will look like many slices of bread lined up in the pan.

Place the loaf in a warm place to rise for about 30 minutes. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30-45 minutes.



    • Hi Joan, I haven’t tried making this recipe in a bread machine yet. It wouldn’t turn out quite the same as when made by hand as it is in a pull-apart style but if you give it a try let us know has it turns out. Happy baking!

  1. Hi Sondra,

    Can you tell me how much sugar and cinnamon you used for the filling? It’s my first time that I will be attempting this and want to make sure it would not be bland.


    • Hi Sam, I sprinkled a thin layer of sugar over the dough and then used a cinnamon shaker to evenly sprinkle the cinnamon. There isn’t a set amount you need to use – it is more by preference how sweet or cinnamony you’d like it. Think sticky bun meets bread. 🙂 Happy baking!

  2. This recipe was so easy and quick to make! Made this the other morning before work and took some to our office staff. Everybody loved it!

    • Thanks for sharing how the recipe turned out for you, Debbie! We’re so thrilled to hear everyone loved it!
