I absolutely love warm cinnamon rolls on a lazy Saturday morning! Unfortunately, Pillsbury’s rolls in a can aren’t exactly beneficial to my fat loss 🙂 However…making my own is!!! And best of all I get to share them with you!! It’s a win-win 🙂
Only 9g net carbs & 35g protein for the whole roll! Of course it depends on the protein powder u use as well!
What you will need:
1/4c Coconut Flour
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used About Time)
1/2 tsp Xanthan Gum
1/4 tsp baking powder
2 tsp stevia
1 egg white
3 tbsp water
1 tbsp stevia
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 tbsp water
Sweet Spreads Cinnamon Roll Coconutter (coconut butter spread)
Preheat oven to 350F.
Mix cinnamon roll ingredients together. It will be thick like dough!
Roll it into a big ball and place it on parchment paper or surface floured with coconut flour.
Roll out the dough. It will be sticky! Use a little coconut flour on your hands to press down the dough into a rectangle as much as you can. Use a rolling pin or a cup dusted with the flour to roll the rest of it out.
Mix filling ingredients and spread onto dough.
Place on baking sheet and bake for 17-20 minutes or until lightly browned.
Slice and add your sweet topping! I topped mine with Sweet Spreads Cinnamon Roll Coconutter. Sooo flippin good and goes perfectly with my Cinnamon Rolls!! You can also use Nonfat Plain Greek yogurt sweetened with stevia as an icing.
