Almost No-Fat Harvest Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by sconehead

I came up with this recipe one rainy Saturday morning when everyone wanted cinnamon rolls but I didn't want to take the time for "regular" ones. I had purchased a ball of pizza dough at the store so I used that as my dough for the rolls. Worked out GREAT!! This will probably be our Christmas breakfast.....easy and YUMMY!!! I am a "dump cook" so I approximate with measurement. :-) My kids LOVED these!! Would be good with chopped walnuts, but my kids won't eat those very often. I have to call them "super food" to get them to eat ...but only occasionally. :-)

Excellent! I mixed together the applesauce and pumpkin butter and spread it that way. Left out the flax as I was out but they still tasted fantastic.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Roll out dough to approximately 12 X 16.
  2. Spread with pumpkin butter, then applesauce.
  3. Sprinkle with flax seed, then with dried cranberries.
  4. Roll up as with regular cinnamon rolls (will be a little messy because of the applesauce)
  5. Slice into 12 slices and place in a round pan sprayed with nonstick spray.
  6. Bake in 400 degree oven for approximately 20 minutes. Take out of oven and let sit for about 5 minutes.
  7. In the meantime, mix together powdered sugar, pumpkin butter & orange juice in a bowl. Drizzle or spread over rolls. It will seem like there is too much, but let it sit for a few minutes and soak into the rolls.
  8. Serve warm.
