Whole wheat cinnamon rolls
Healthier version of cinnamon rolls or buns with whole wheat flour and lower fat and sugar content. They are soft, slightly sweet, and great for breakfast or a snack, not only for children. If you prefer sweeter foods, I recommend adding a tablespoon of honey to the recipe. However, these whole wheat cinnamon rolls taste fantastic and they are also easier to digest than their store-bought version.
I have a big sweet-tooth and cinnamon rolls are one of the classic recipes that remind me of childhood. The smell of cinnamon floating through the apartment and impatient waiting over the hot rolls. If you've ever experienced for yourself why you should not eat warm pastries, it was definitely with such a sweet creation. Cinnamon rolls or buns are very popular basically everywhere, so I came up with a lighter and healthier version.
I chose fine whole wheat flour for the dough and the only sweetener used in this recipe is honey. You also don't need anything else for the cinnamon filling other than cinnamon, apple puree and honey. One healthy cinnamon roll contains only 3g of fat and 120 calories, which makes it a low-fat and low-calorie cinnamon pastry. Yummy! Try these healthy cinnamon rolls, they are amazing, light, and everyone will surely love them.
