Sunday Morning Cinnamon Rolls

Sunday mornings are made for Cinnamon Rolls.

Disclosure Statement

I love recipes that make enough to last a couple days. They tend to make my life so much easier and less stressful.


Sunday mornings around here are a bit quieter, we attend church on Saturday afternoons most of the time. It’s Rick’s one day off per week and a day we spend doing family stuff.

Since I began this journey to better health, one of the things we have missed has been the indulgence of classic cinnamon rolls. I see many ladies asking for recipes that fit into weight loss mode of Trim Healthy Mama.

The alternative flours can be tricky and even the new THM Baking Blend is a little quirky when using it to adapt recipes that fit this lifestyle. Add into the mix alternative sweeteners and this becomes a major challenge. The best part of using these ingredients is that they are Gluten Free and Sugar Free which really helps to keep them healthy.

Cinnamon rolls are notoriously sweet and sticky (at least the ones I love are) with nuts and brown sugar… cream cheese and just plain awesome.

When my kids were small they were a go to Christmas morning tradition as well as something they begged for throughout the year.

So many times mama’s are asking or troubled with how to use the sugar alternatives… I wrote an article about that problem and how I solve it here

  1. I only have pysillium powder, could I use that instead of the flake? If so, how much do you think I should use? Thanks!

    1. Yeast has it’s own flavor and adds to the taste of these rolls. Also psyllium will act in the same manner that gluten does, trapping the gasses and causing these to rise slightly. No they don’t rise as high as wheat flour rolls will, but they do rise 🙂
