These Low Calorie Cinnamon Rolls are just 79 calories, and so easy to make!
If you use the all-natural zero calorie powdered sugar, the calories will not change if you add the glaze. But I know many people like a cream cheese glaze, so that is an option as well and will add just 10 calorie to each cinnamon roll.
Special Tip: Make sure to get self-rising flour. We are not adding any yeast to this recipe, so you need the self-rising flour to make them rise.

More Optional Toppings:


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • To a large bowl, combine the four and Greek yogurt. Mix together until it becomes a sticky dough.
  • Lay the dough on a floured surface and roll out to a large rectangle and let sit and rise a little while you make the cinnamon glaze.
  • To a small bowl, combine the coconut oil, cinnamon and sugar. Mix together, then spread over the top of the dough rectangle.
  • Use a knife or pizza cutter to slice 10 strips, then roll each up into a cinnamon roll shape, placing the cinnamon rolls on the prepared baking sheet as you work.
  • Add to the preheated oven and bake for about 15-17 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, make the optional glaze or the cream cheese frosting and chop any nuts you will be adding.
  • When the cinnamon rolls are finished baking, remove from the oven. Allow to cool for 15 minutes before glazing and adding frosting. Top with chopped nuts and serve warm.
