Easy Sticky Buns

How to make soft, fluffy, gooey, easy sticky buns from scratch.

Recipe from Chocolate Covered Katie (chocolatecoveredkatie.com)

Cook Time 25 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Yield 8 - 10 buns


  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, date sugar, or coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter of choice, or applesauce for fat-free
  • 16 oz pizza dough
  • 1/3 cup chopped pecans or walnuts (omit for nut-free)
  • 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  • Preheat oven to 350 F. Either on the stove or in the microwave, gently heat butter, nuts, and all but two tablespoons of the sugar until smooth and slightly thick. Roll dough on a floured surface. If too sticky, add more flour of choice a little at a time. Roll very thin (just under 1/8-inch is perfect). Sprinkle the cinnamon and remaining sugar evenly on top. Cut long strips, then roll each up as tightly as possible. Spread half of the liquid mixture into the bottom of an 8x8 baking pan, place the rolls into the pan, then spread remaining liquid on top. Bake 25 minutes. For that classic sticky bun look, invert rolls before serving.
