You’ve been visiting this space a while, right? Like, you already know how much I hate exercise. Exercise is like a minion who happily serves a demon, who serves the devil. I hate it. Every single time I wake up I feel like I should walk around sprinkling holy water just exorcising exercise. It’s just not natural to torture a body like this. It’s not! Exercise should never go beyond standing from a seated position.
Yet here I am. Repping to lose fat, like a superhero fighting off diabetes and Tempurpedic pillow thighs.
But I HATE IT. HATE IT! And because I eat so many cookies in between bites of broccoli, quinoa, and yucky kale – I must crunch and lift, and crunch and lift.

I go through fits of exercise. I’m all motivated for a month or so. I see my traces of my collarbone and a hint of a former six-pack. Then I ruin it by binge-eating chocolate and cake for three weeks straight. Which makes me feel guilty. Which makes me stop exercising. Which leads me to eat more chocolate and cake. And then I’m right back where I started.
Emotion plays into this a lot. I may have a case of resting bitch face, but I am such an emotional creature and I cry a lot. It’s pathetic.
If you say something mean to me, or if you’re being petty and passive aggressive – I can feel that. And it affects me. And the next day I’m hitting that chocolate and my Wonka candy stash.
I haven’t quite learned to deal with my feelings in a way that’s not damaging to my body. I’m like, fuck this shit. I need to add yoga and meditation to my exercise regimen.

So, yeah. I’ve been exercising again. Slowly. Not every day. Hell no – Not every day. Hating the asshole on screen who tells me ‘one more rep!’ and ‘you can do it!’ and ‘you have no excuse!’ ‘AND streeeeeeetch!!!’ – Like my body bends that way. And there is ALWAYS a minion lunging next to her with the body-builder legs, fit and shit after popping quintuplets. I hate that bitch more than anything. She makes me feel insecure for following the modified version chick.

They say you reach a certain point where you become addicted to exercise. I’m not there yet. I’ve never been there. Because, well… Because chocolate and sugar are always waiting in the periphery. Just walking along in the sidelines waiting… Just waiting to take me back with open arms. And let’s be real. I am their bitch. We’re in a happily satisfying three-way and I… Well, I can’t just give it up.
So I’m trying to live between these worlds. The world of sweet potato and chickpeas – And the world where chocolate drips like a wet dream.
Now flow with me, let’s talk about these Chocolate Breakfast Rolls.
No, this is not a happy medium. There is no chickpea flour in place of good ol’ fashioned all-purpose. This is a super indulgent roll. It’s the roll you lunge 6,528 times for while holding 12lb weights.
I found cinnamon rolls on Epicurious by way of America’s Test Kitchen – A kitchen I trust my life with.

I made very little changes to the dough. I did, however, add a bit more sugar for a sweeter roll. I swapped out the cinnamon with cocoa powder and glazed them with even more chocolate. Because like I said, I’m chocolate and sugar’s bitch.
The original recipe mixes the dough by machine. I’m old school. I mix and knead by hand. You can go ahead and click on the link above for machine instructions. I don’t judge.

This dough is allowed to rise for over two hours, then it’s pressed into a rectangle. Butter is melted and mixed with sugar and cocoa powder. This mixture is spread over the dough rectangle and then you roll that sucka’ into a cylinder. The dough is cut and allowed to rise over a buttered dish sprinkled with sugar.

The buns are baked until golden. Oh, so golden.

When they cool a bit they’re glazed with a mixture of cocoa powder, confectioners’ sugar, and milk. I went light with the glaze for the photos. I didn’t go light with the glaze in real life.
