PROTEIN CINNAMON ROLLS

What's better than waking up to warm, fresh out of the oven cinnamon rolls?! Healthier, homemade fresh out of the oven cinnamon rolls!

 

INGREDIENTS:

Dough:
- 200g Greek Yogurt
- 2 tbsp butter, melted
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 2 scoops @corenutritionals French toast or cinnamon roll protein flour
- 1/2 tbsp cinnamon

Filling:
- 2 tbsp butter, melted
- 2 tbsp cinnamon
- 2 tbsp stevia

Frosting:
- 1/2 scoop @corenutritionals vanilla Protein Powder
- 16g vanilla sugar free pudding mix
- 2 tbsp unsweetened cashew milk
- sweetener of choice, to taste

 

DIRECTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. In a medium sized bowl, combine Greek yogurt, butter and vanilla extract. Add all dry dough ingredients to the bowl. Mix until a dough begins to form. Do not overwork the dough.
3. Place dough on a floured surface. Roll out using a rolling pin to make a rectangle.
4. Brush melted light butter onto the dough. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture.
5. Roll dough lengthwise. Cut into 8 equal rolls. You can trim off the ends to get more perfect cinnamon rolls, or leave them like I did.
6. Place cinnamon rolls in a small baking dish sprayed with nonstick spray. Bake at 350F for about 18-22 minutes.
7. While baking, mix all frosting ingredients in a small bow. Once cinnamon rolls are baked, drizzle icing over top while still warm. Enjoy!
