"Who doesn't love a Cinnabon? These taste so yummy but I always look for a way to make things a little healthier without changing the taste. I just spread a little less butter and use Neufchatel cheese and this recipe still tastes great."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

warm milk (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
eggs, room temperature
4 1/2 cups
2 1/2 teaspoons
bread machine yeast
brown sugar, packed
2 1/2 tablespoons
1 (3 ounce) package
Neufchatel cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups
Cinnamon rolls never disappoint, and this recipe is no different. I don’t use a bread machine, so I proofed the yeast in the milk, added the rest of the ingredients, with the exception of the flour which I added a cup of at a time using my KA mixer. I don’t use margarine, only butter, and I added chopped walnuts and raisins to the filling – it’s the law in this house. Baking time was 20 minutes.
my dough seemed a little tough and I've made the Clone of a Cinnabon recipe many times with great success.....shouldn't there be some salt in this recipe??
Excellent! I cut corners by using Rhodes frozen whole wheat bread loaf and using 2/3 the cinnamon/brown sugar mix inside. There was plenty of sugar already for the Rhodes size loaf ... Turned out gooey and delicious.
Amazing recipe, tastes like a full fat version. So good! Soft fluffy bread and a beautiful filling. Tastes excellent straight from the oven with all the icing still hot. Tastes great the next day too!
I loved how these came out! The only thing I did differently, was use Fage greek yogurt instead of cream cheese(didn't have any) in the icing. It had the perfect texture and flavor! Also used a little vanilla Natural Bliss creamer to make it the right consistency for us....Yummo!
I just got done maling the "clone" cinnabon omg this is right on .From one cook to another "JOB WELL DONE" Thank You So Much
Not healthier. This is just the original recipe (which is great) and saying to use less butter in the frosting and cin/sugar mix. Anyone can just put less frosting on but that does not make a new or healthier recipe. Nothing important changed here except the elimination of salt from the dough recipe which is a mistake unless you really need a no salt diet. Bread needs salt as part of the process. At minimum this should include a note that salt, which is a key ingredient in bread, is eliminated which will degrade the bread quality. Putting on less frosting doesn't really change the health profile of this. Each bite will have a little less butter and that much more carbs and sugar. Seriously - a healthy cinnamon roll is just a smaller cinnamon roll.
