I am in love with pretty much any combination of butter and cinnamon sugar! Cinnamon rolls are hands down my favorite treat. I could probably eat them every day – that’s the problem. It would be unacceptable to eat cinnamon rolls all day, every day. Not to mention I would be void of nutrition. My love for sweets has inspired me to find a healthier version of all my favorite treats, and these protein cinnamon rolls are my first success!
The secret that makes them delicious and nutritious is Kodiak Cakes pancake mix. One of my favorite breakfasts is Kodiak Cake pancakes with scrambled eggs, but breakfast is not the only thing that this glorious mix is good for. It makes amazing desserts! Every serving of the mix contains 14 grams of protein.
Protein Cinnamon Rolls made Healthy and Sugar-free
2018 Update: Ever since discovering zero calorie monk fruit sweetener, I’ve been obsessed with creating sugar-free desserts. Looking back at my original protein cinnamon rolls recipe, I realized that just adding protein doesn’t make it healthy when I leave all the sugar in it. Luckily, the solution is so simple. Just replace the sugar with monk fruit sweetener! I use the same cinnamon-sweetener mixture in my Keto Snickerdoodle Recipe, and it is so good!
I am so excited to continue creating sugar-free recipes! In the meantime, I hope you enjoy these protein cinnamon rolls, with or without sugar – I won’t judge 😉
There you go! They may not be the most beautiful cinnamon rolls you’ve ever seen, but they’re good. The best part is that I don’t feel quite so much guilt when I eat more that one. Enjoy!
