For the Cinnamon Roll FillingIn a small bowl combine the sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Set Aside.
For the Challah DoughSprinkle a large work surface with oat flour. Divide the dough into two 1/2 pound pieces. Roll a piece into a large rectangle. Sprinkle 1/3 of the cinnamon roll filling over the dough. Tightly roll the dough up jelly roll style, pinching the ends. Twist the long dough into a circle and place in one of the prepared round pans. Cover with plastic wrap. Repeat with the remaining 1/2 pound of challah dough. Allow the dough to rise in a warm location for 60 minutes. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Uncover the challahs, then brush with egg wash and sprinkle the tops with the remaining cinnamon roll filling. Bake for 30 minutes. Always serve warm.
If you have a convection oven you can have your dough rise on the proofing setting which is usually set at "bake 100°F". If using traditional glutenous dough, allow the dough to rise before shaping.
