Protein Cinnamon Rolls

This recipe gives you everything that you LOVE about cinnamon rolls, without the guilty-and-fattening ingredients. And best of all it’s SO EASY to make! 

Please know that this recipe is meant to be eaten IMMEDIATELY and that it’s very possible to OVERCOOK it. So wait until you are ready to enjoy before sticking it in the microwave and only cook it for 25-30 seconds. Even if the dough still seems soft after 25-30 seconds, it’s going to continue to dry out after you remove it from the microwave, so resist the urge to cook it longer.

What you need
Servings: 1

For the Cinnamon Roll:

1 scoop high quality vanilla protein powder
1 tablespoon coconut flour​
½ teaspoon baking powder​
⅛ teaspoon sea salt
2 teaspoons water
1 teaspoon coconut oil, melted
1 egg

For the Filling:

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon​
2 teaspoons coconut palm sugar
1 teaspoon water OR coconut oil, melted

For the Icing:

1 scoop high quality vanilla protein powder
2 tablespoons water OR almond milk

Instructions

1. Lightly grease a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl with coconut oil. 

2. In another small bowl combine the icing ingredients together and whisk with a fork for 20 seconds. This icing will appear lumpy at first, but as it rests while you make the cinnamon roll it will become smooth. Set icing aside.

3. In another small bowl, combine the filling ingredients. Mix well and set aside.

4. In a small mixing bowl combine the cinnamon roll ingredients. Mix well until a dough forms.

5. On a piece of wax paper, sprinkle some coconut flour down. Put the dough on the floured surface and shape into a long strip – about a foot-long, 2-inches wide and ½ inch thick. Sprinkle with additional coconut flour as needed to shape without sticking.

6. Sprinkle the filling over the long strip of dough. Roll the dough up, from one end to the other, then transfer into the greased, microwave-safe bowl.

7. Microwave on high for 25 seconds. Immediately transfer the cinnamon roll to a plate and cover with the prepared icing. Serve IMMEDIATELY and ENJOY!
