Did you know that one Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Roll is 12 WW Freestyle points!?

That’s a lot of points!!

I love to have cinnamon rolls on the weekend for breakfast. Not wanting to miss out on my cinnamon rolls, I used the two ingredient dough to make them.

These cinnamon rolls are only 2 Freestyle points each! That’s a huge difference.

The only thing about the two ingredient dough is that it can be kind of sticky when you’re working with it. I have learned a few tricks to help work with the dough.

One tool for me that is a must is a dough scraper. It makes it very easy to scrape the dough up, especially when you have to toll the dough up.

I also spray a little bit of no-stick cooking spray on my hands when I’m working with the dough.

To make these cinnamon rolls I rolled out the dough into a rectangular shape. I used my dough scraper to cut off any extra dough.

It doesn’t have to be a perfect rectangle since you’ll be rolling it up. I melted 1 tablespoon of butter and used a pastry brush to spread the butter all over the dough.

Next, I mixed together granulated Splenda and cinnamon and sprinkled it over the dough.

Once that was done I started rolling up the dough. This is when the dough scraper comes in handy.

If the dough starts to stick to the dough scraper you can spray it with a little no-stick cooking spray.

After the dough was rolled up I cut it into 10 pieces, then put it in a baking dish.

I used my pastry brush to spread egg wash onto the cinnamon rolls. Then they were off to the oven for 25 minutes.

A cinnamon roll wouldn’t be complete without some type of glaze over them. I mixed together some powdered sugar and skim milk, then drizzled that over them. It’s a perfect weekend breakfast!

If you will use powdered Swerve and brown sugar Swerve and unsweetened Almond milk you will reduce points. Also in glaze a touch of almond extract gives a new flavor.
