Protein Cinnamon Rolls Revisited


Editors Note: The protein cinnamon roll recipe was a HUGE hit but many of you had questions about it. Rachel Mac took apart the recipe and re-engineered to use more common ingredients. Check it out below!




You will need:

25g vanilla protein powder

10g coconut flour
25g unsweet apple sauce

4 egg whites

1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp baking powder


3 oz 0% greek yogurt
1 packet sweetener
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1-2 oz unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or water)
sprinkle cinnamon

Combine ingredients for cinnamon roll. Create an 8″ by 2″ rectangle with raised sides out of tin foil on a baking sheet and spray it with nonstick cooking spray. Pour cinnamon roll mix into the rectangle and bake at 350* for 10 minutes.

Combine frosting ingredients.

When cinnamon roll is done, transfer it onto a plate and discard the foil. Spread the frosting on the cinnamon roll, roll up and serve. Top with crushed walnuts, slivered almonds, cacao nibs, or berries, if desired.
