These 95-Calorie Gooey Cinnamon Rolls are moist and delicious…and did I mention they’re ONLY 95 calories each?! These rolls were made with a 2-ingredient dough that requires no yeast or waiting long hours for the dough to rise!!
Does anyone else have a major sweet tooth, besides me?! Come on, y’all, I can’t be the only one that can eat dessert for every meal! (Or maybe I am lol). My love for sweets can get me into trouble at times! I have to be really careful and try not to devour more than my allotted portion! This can be tough; especially when there are cinnamon rolls involved! Lol!
I love to bake, but I’m still working to perfect this hobby. Usually when I bake, I have problems with my dough! Sometimes my dough won’t turn out right or I just don’t have time to wait for it to rise. I came across this popular 2-Ingredient dough and became intrigued! I just had to try it and see what all of the drama was about! Who knew that Greek yogurt and flour would make a nice dough! I played with the proportions a little bit until I found the perfect ratio!
My dough looked perfect! When combining and kneeding the ingredients, you have to gradually add more flour because the dough can be sticky. After I kneaded the dough, I formed it into a ball and rolled it out into a slightly thin layer. I melted some margarine and added cinnamon and sugar. I evenly applied the butter mixture on the dough and rolled it up. I cut the dough into about 1 inch thick rolls, laid them on a baking sheet, and popped them into the oven! Soooo easy!
These 95-Calorie Gooey Cinnamon Rolls turned out extremely yummy!! I couldn’t believe they were only 95 calories each! I ate 2…and then went back and ate 2 more! Lol! I couldn’t help myself! For the finishing touch, I added a little glaze and pecans on top! This is truly my new favorite dessert! Make a batch today, and I’m pretty sure you’ll agree with me!
