In a bowl, mix together the whole wheat flour, ground oats and salt. Set aside.
In lukewarm milk, add 1 packet of dry instant yeast, mix it up and add to the flour mixture.
Stir with the spoon, then add the sweetener, applesauce and whisked egg.
Knead the dough using a stand mixer or with your hand, do not over work it (for about 5 minutes).
Transfer the dough into a bowl, cover and let rise for 1 hour at room temperature.
While the dough is rising make the filling. Place the dates into a jar, cover with hot water and soak for 30 minutes. Add the cinnamon and blend into a smooth paste.
The dough should be double in size. Turn it out onto a floured or greased working surface, roll it out into a large rectangle.
Spread the filling over the dough and roll it out.
Cut into 12 equal slices using a sharp knife or dental floss.
Layer the individual rolls into a greased baking pan and let it proof for another 45 minutes.
Brush with the milk and bake for 20-25 minutes at 350F (180C), or until it just starts to brown.
While warm drizzle with topping.
