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!

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!

    Ooh Andy, I could sure ise one or 2 of those cinnamon rolls right now. For just 95 calories..maybe 3. Lol . Thanks for the recipe!

    1. Hi! I’m sure you could use wheat flour, but it may result in a slightly tougher product. Give it a try and let me know how it turns out! ?

    Hi, your recipe sounds delicious! You might want to try self-rising flour in place of the all purpose flour. I’m a WW member and I just got this 2-ingredient dough recipe where you can make a lot of different things, like pizza dough, pita chips and pretzel nuggets. It’s so easy and low in SmartPoints, too!


  3. Do they rise if you don’t use any baking soda or baking powder? I would think they’d be more like a cookie than a roll.

    1. Mine have been in the oven for 15 minutes and they aren’t rising, they still look exactly the same as when I placed them in. Did yours take longer to rise?

      1. since this is a different type of dough than the usual cinnamon roll dough, they are not going to rise that much. They will remain fairly small, but they will be delicious!

  4. How big is each cinnamon roll, approximately? I’m assuming not huge like a Cinnabon, but are they like the super-tiny small pillsbury ones?

  5. Can I make the cinnamon rolls and refrigerate them over night and then cook them for Christmas brunch? Have you ever made them with gluten free flour?

    1. I have never tried this method, but I don’t see any reason why they wouldn’t turn out great! Let me know what happens!!

  6. Hi Andy, I tried this recipe but my buns did not rise much at all and resulted in a tough dough. The only thing I did differently was I substituted Splenda for the sugar. My dough seemed to be less sticky than you discussed. Any thoughts?

    These tasted amazing!! I was able to make 14 mini cinnamon buns, however even with the smaller size of the buns they took quite a bit longer to cook. I had them in the oven approx. 15 minutes longer than suggested to get the middle to cook through. Otherwise, they tasted amazing (even with subbing 1/4 C flour for WW flour)

    1. I’m so glad that you enjoyed them! I will have to double check that cooking time, thanks for letting me know!

    This was really good! I used brown sugar instead of white and I added raisins. I also used self rising flour instead of all purpose. Mine did 13 rolls and my 4 kids and husband gave them 2 thumbs up!

    1. I haven’t tried any substitutions for those ingredients, but maybe you could try sour cream in place of the Greek yogurt, and maybe cashew milk, oat milk, or soy milk in place of the almond milk.

    These sound and look so good! I would like to use almond or coconut flour instead. I read that a 3:1 ratio of almond to coconut flour could mimic all purpose flour. Do you think this could work?

    1. I have not tried this recipe with almond or coconut flour before. If you try it, definitely let me know how it turns out!!

  10. Hey!! I just found this recipe and I’m really looking forward to making it! I’m a baker myself and really excited to move into the low calorie area!! About how many calories would you say the dough itself is? Thank you in advance!!
