Look what being forced to stay at home as driven me to do...create this AMAZING 3-min Protein Cinnamon Roll that you can make right in the microwave!
I am a HUGE fan of cinnamon rolls - the gooier the better - and so I’m surprised that it’s taken me this long to think of this recipe. Traditional cinnamon rolls are full of FAT, SUGAR and CARBS and so I do my best to avoid them - even though they taste SO GOOD!
This recipe gives you everything that you LOVE about cinnamon rolls, without the guilty-and-fattening ingredients. And best of all it’s SO EASY to make!
**Please know that this recipe is meant to be eaten IMMEDIATELY and that it’s very possible to OVERCOOK it. So wait until you are ready to enjoy before sticking it in the microwave and only cook it for 25-30 seconds. Even if the dough still seems soft after 25-30 seconds, it’s going to continue to dry out after you remove it from the microwave, so resist the urge to cook it longer.**
**Also note that your average traditional cinnamon roll has 729 calories, 24 grams of fat, 114 grams of carbs and 14 grams of protein. We’ve managed to reduce the calories by 46%, reduce the fat by 60%, reduce the carbs by 80% and increase the protein by 400%!**
IF 400 calories is too much for your nutrition plan then cut it in half and share with a friend! Then it will be reduced down to 200 calories, 5 grams of fat, 10.5 grams of carbs, 4 grams of sugar and 28 grams of protein!
The ONLY protein that I would use in this recipe is TRULEAN’S FROSTED VANILLA CAKE WHEY PROTEIN POWDER since the flavor and ingredient quality makes a HUGE difference in taste and consistency. PLEASE don’t attempt to make this recipe with low quality protein powder - it won’t taste right!
