Protein Cinnamon Roll



You know the smell. You walk into the food court of a mall and it invades your senses. Your heart rate climbs. Your mouth waters. Your stomach churns.

Cinnamon rolls.

So good. So incredibly bad for you. Never fear. We’ve got the high protein, low carb version for you and they taste amazing!

 

You will need:

  • 5 Egg Whites
  • 10g Coconut flour
  • 30g Vanilla whey
  • 10g Apple Fiber
  • 1 Packet Truvia
  • 1/2 tbsp Cinnamon

Spray a rectangle pan with non stick spray (coconut oil works great here)

Combine the above ingredients and then lay it out on the pan in one long rectangle.

Bake for 15 minutes or until done at 350 degrees.

Frosting:

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/4 cup Fage Non-fat Greek Yogurt
  • 2 Packets Truvia
  • 1 Tbsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla Extract

Whip the egg whites together, then fold into the Fage. Combine and whip the remaining ingredients.

Once the roll is done, roll it up and cover in the frosting (you’ll probably have extra). Sprinkle chopped walnuts on top.

    awesome! What size pan should I put it in?

    Don’t have apple fiber but may try it without

    Xtreme Formulations makes a “Cinnamon Roll” protein powder which tastes incredible (just like Cinnabon!) and would work well in this recipe.

    It seems you are not cooking the egg in the frosting. Eating uncooked egg puts you at risk for Salmonella, so I was wondering if we can make the frosting without the egg whites…? Thanks.

    Are the grams a measure of weight for the ingredients? Can someone translate into ounces or cups?

    which protein powder do you guys use? i used pro-isl from strive and it comes out too dry

    I found out 10g is 1 tbsp. I can’t wait to try this recipe! I’ll try it with almond flour and ground flax seed (all fiber) first, at least until I get some apple fiber.
