Healthier Clone of a Cinnabon

Recipe by  

"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."

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!
