protein cinnamon rolls

Cinnamon Buns of Steel

So I love cinnamon rolls, like I’m pretty sure I sold my sould to that damn Pillsbury Doughboy. But let’s face it, I would end up looking like that little  white blob if I gave i every time I wanted that warm, gooey, cinnamony goodness (are you as turned on as I am?). So I came up with a solution, I made an amazing high protein cinnamon roll.

Dough
• ¼ cup coconut flour
• 1 scoop protein powder of your choice
• ½ tsp xantham gum
• ¼ tsp baking powder
• 1 egg white (3 Tbsp out of the carton)
• 2 tsp Stevia
• 3 Tbsp water (I subbed 1 Tbsp with Torani sugarfree caramel syrup)
* I also add a splash of vanilla, butter extract (my crack), and a pinch of salt.

Filling
• 1 Tbsp cinnamon
• 1 Tbsp Stevia
• 1 Tbsp water (I used Walden Farms maple syrup instead)

Mix together the dough and roll it out to a rectangle.Being the classy broad I am I used an empty wine bottle. Make sure to lube that sucker up because that dough is damn sticky.  Mix the filling and spread that liquid cocaine over the dough evenly. Then roll it up, sprinkle a little cinnamon on top and bake it at 350 degrees for 17-20 minutes or until it is golden like Olympic medal. Top with whatever you wish! I highly suggest MuscleButter Birthday Cake Cashew Spread or Nuts n’ More Toffee Crunch peanut butter.
