Protein Packed Cinnamon Rolls

Updated: Aug 6, 2021

I had a friend tell me she loves cinnamon rolls but her butt doesn't. 😂 That's when I knew I had to make her some that her butt would like! Presenting...low fat high protein cinnamon rolls so you can build that booty in the right way 💪🍑


You can use any protein powder that suits your fancy but I recommend LivBody Cinnamon Cookie Crumble as it gives you that added cinnamony goodness! (Discount code: coachcassandraoc to save 20%) Otherwise, I would recommend vanilla or plain.


Ingredients:

2 cups whole wheat flour

1 cup LivBody Cinnamon Cookie Crumble protein powder

1 cup soymilk (or other sweetened non dairy milk)

1 packet dry yeast

10 dates, soaked

1/4 - 1/2 cup water

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 cup unsalted cashews, soaked

1/4 cup water

4 tbsp maple syrup or 3 dates

1/2 tsp cinnamon


Method:

Warm up sweetened milk to 90 or 100 degrees. Pour in dry yeast and let sit 10 minutes until it's foamy. Mix together flour, salt and protein powder. Slowly add flour mix to foamy milk and kneed dough slightly. (if it's too dry, add water 1 tbsp at a time until dough forms) Roll into a ball and allow to rest and rise for 1 hour. Note: whole wheat flour doesn't rise as much as all purpose so just be prepared.


Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Blend dates, water and cinnamon. You want it to be thick not runny.


Turn out dough onto floured surface and roll out to a square. Spread date mix evenly over dough. Roll it up into a log and slice into 8 pieces. Arrange in lightly greased baking dish and bake for 30 minutes.


Meanwhile, add cashews, syrup and cinnamon to dirty blender and blend until smooth. Add water 1 tbsp at a time until desired consistency. After cooked rolls have cooled for 15 minutes, pour cashew topping onto rolls and top with chopped walnuts. Enjoy!
