Mini Cinnamon Buns- Healthy Style - Adventures With Ellie

Mini Cinnamon Buns- Healthy Style

Today I'm sharing with you a recipe I found on pinterest that I KNEW I had to try right away once I saw it.

I of course thought Saturday morning would be the perfect time to give them a go. Truth be told when I was making them I thought OHHHH no wonder they are 1 pt each (for you guys that follow weight watchers like myself) they are tiny ya'll BUT it's the perfect treat to curb that sweet tooth (which I have a mega one) in the AM that made me say OK I'm happy with these.

I actually changed the recipe slightly. I used almond milk instead of the low fat milk and powered sugar. With that being said let me share them so you can make a batch too!

You get 20 mini rolls or if you just want them 10 with the whole sheet instead of dividing it.

Ingredients :  
One 8 ounce reduced fat crescent rolls
1/4 cup of powered sugar
4 teaspoon mix of sugar and cinnamon ( I did 2 1/2 to 1 1/2 rato)
2 teaspoons of almond milk


LETS get to this ya'll!

First open up that bad boy of crescent rolls. Is it just me but I can never just have "pop" all nice it always ends up me having to open it up with a knife.  Now carefully unroll it so you can get your "two sheets" and make sure press where the perforation lines are, I stretched them out a little bit just to make a bigger square but not too much you don't want it to tear them.



Next make the mix of the sugar and cinnamon to put on the dough.


Now it's time to roll up these babies. This step you have to go S L O W because they are fraglie and so you have to go slow so it doesn't all fall apart. TRUST me... you'll get 2 rolls.



Now cut each to get 10 pieces. Yes they will be small but they are actually a very good size to make your tummy and craving for those good buns be satisfied.





Put the oven at 375 degree and bake for 15-20 minutes  (until golden)

While they are baking mix the powered sugar and milk to drizzle over them once they come out of the oven (the original recipe said to use 1/2 cup of powered sugar and I said OH MY no let me try half of that which worked for me)



The glaze was a bit more translucent but I think it was perfect amount of sugar for these yummy treats. Now I'm pretty sure everyone in your house will already be circling the kitchen as the aroma that comes from these while baking is ohhh so good.

If you get a chance place them on a plate and enjoy!





I'd love to hear if you try these! What are your family favorite breakfast to make?
