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. I have not yet found a healthy version of my delicious Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies, so 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.
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!
