Not So Guilty Cinnamon Treats - Adventures With Ellie

Not So Guilty Cinnamon Treats

Today I'm sharing with you a recipe I found a while back and decided to give it my own twist to make it a bit healthier so I'd feel a bit less guilty about having a few more then just one.






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. That way if you have 2 your really having one right?


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 ratio)
  • 2 teaspoons of almond milk



Time to get baking y'all!

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 fragile and so they wouldn't  fall apart. TRUST me... you'll get 2 rolls if you do so.



Now cut each to get 10 pieces. Yes they will be small but they are actually a good size to make to curb that sweetness craving and just enjoy to be filling as well.





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 actually worked just as well)


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 oh 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?
