One of our favorite treats before we started Trim Healthy Mama was Cinnamon Rolls. I had an amazing recipe for this, but it seriously broke all the Trim Healthy Mama rules. It was delicious, but it also had almost a lb of butter between the bread, the filling and the frosting. So I decided to experiment with my rye bread dough to see if I could make something that would taste as good as traditional Cinnamon Rolls. This recipe is the result.
You will need:
1 grapefruit size piece of Refrigerator Rye Bread ( or you could use Gwen's Easy Bread Recipe if you prefer a white bread.)
Sweetener ( I use Kal Pure Stevia Extract Powder)
|Place the dough on a lightly floured or greased piece of greaseproof paper|
|With wet hands flatten out the dough|
|Add a light dusting of Stevia pure extract powder evenly over the dough|
|Sprinkle the dough with ground cinnamon|
|Starting at the wide end nearest you begin rolling the dough|
|My dough got stuck a little so I helped it roll with a spatula|
|Cut into 2inch slices and arrange on a lightly greased baking sheet|
|Allow to rise before baking at 450f for about 15 min|
|Cool on a wire rack|
|Cover with a low fat cream cheese frosting*|
|It won't have the usual visual swirl, but it tastes just as good|
1 tablespoon low fat cream cheese
3 tablespoons of 0% Greek yogurt
dash of vanilla
pinch of Stevia pure extract powder
Mix everything together until smooth, then use to top the still warm Cinnamon Rolls
