These cinnamon rolls are so good, you'll never know they were fat free! Nothing weird as far as ingredients go, just common things you'd already have in your pantry. Found this recipe on the net.

Thanks so much for sharing this. this was my 1st attempt at yeast-based cinn rolls for hubby. I Thought the directions were so helpful & make a big difference for a 1st-timer! I warmed my milk up in the micro for about 30 sec, which made it warm. I did have a litle trouble w/ the rolling, but next time will use more flour &/or nonstick spray on the cutting board! Baking time was only about 15 min. I kind of improvised on the icing amounts; made about 2/3 of the recipe but it worked fine & was easy to drizzle. I only got about 8 rolls out of this. Next time I'll make sure to pinch the ends of the rolls b/c one didn't hold together very well. My husband thought they tasted fabulous, but said they were a bit "chewy" since there wasn't any butter/fat. I'm not sure if he'll request them again--but he was surprised they were fat free so am hoping that will encourage another request! I sure had fun making them :-)

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large bowl, combine the 1 cup lukewarm milk and the yeast. Add the 1/4 cup sugar, 1 1/2 cups of the flour and the 2 egg whites. Mix well. Cover bowl with kitchen towel and let sit 30 minutes on the counter. Now add the salt and the other 1 1/2 cups flour. Knead dough 5 minutes, adding enough extra flour to keep dough from sticking to counter. Roll out the dough into a rectangle shape, probably 12" by 9". Mix the 1 cup brown sugar with the ground cinnamon and sprinkle over dough, saving a little to sprinkle over top. Roll up dough, lengthwise and cut into approximately 1" slices. Place in greased baking pan. Beat togeather the egg white and the 1 tablespoon skim milk, brush over the tops of cut rolls and sprinkle with the reserved cinnamon/sugar mix. Preheat oven to 375 degrees and bake the rolls uncovered for 20-25 minutes. In a small bowl combine powdered sugar, the 3 tablespoons skim milk and the vanilla. Cool rolls slightly and drizzle icing over.
