Two ingredient dough cinnamon rolls

March 24, 2019

If you have not tried the two ingredient dough yet you really need to get on that train πŸ˜‰Β  there are so many things you can make with this easy to make dough! I’ve been wanting to make cinnamon rolls with it for a while and I finally got around to it the other morning, these tasty baked treats were amazing and I might have eaten 3 in a row haha! They are so simple to make, take very little time and just 2 smart points each on WW freestyle.


Two ingredient dough cinnamon rolls
Recipe type: Baking
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1 cup non fat plain greek yogurt
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp icing sugar (confectionary sugar)
  • 2 tsp milk
  1. Preheat oven to 375F, line a baking sheet with some parchment paper, I also spray the paper lightly.
  2. In a bowl mix your yogurt and flour together *If you don't have self raising flour you can use all purpose and add a little baking powder and salt to it
  3. Mix your dough till you can form a ball, it will be slightly sticky, sprinkle some flour on a flat surface and keep kneading the dough in some extra flour till it's not sticky. Roll the dough out *mine was rolled out to approx 12" by 10"
  4. In a small bowl mix the brown sugar and cinnamon together and sprinkle over the dough. Roll your dough up and cut into 2 equal pieces, then cut each piece into 6 giving you 12 rolls.
  5. Place cut pieces onto the baking sheet and bake in the oven for 18 minutes or until they look golden brown on top.
  6. In a small bowl mix the icing sugar with a little milk and brush glaze onto warm cinnamon rolls, makes 12 rolls. Store in a sealed container.

    Do you think I could replace the brown sugar with splenda brown?

    Easy and delicious! I of course didn’t read through the directions completely and cut mine into six pieces-needless to say they were a bit larger.

      1 cup of flour to 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
      Yes they can be frozen

        Hi, icing sugar is really what is needed when making it, I am not sure regular sugar would work, you can try googling icing recipes using regular sugar

          You can always making icing sugar by putting white sugar in a blender and blend until it a powder

          4 cups sugar
          1/2 cup corn starch

      Are you sure you are using GREEK non fat yogurt? I have many times thought I bought Greek, but it was just plain yogurt, and it is very sticky! So much so you can barely handle it.

      Making these right now. I put my dough in fridge to hopefully help w some stickiness. Fage greek seems to work best as it’s thicker. I’m going to spray the dough w pan spray to avoid the filling issue if it’s not sticking. Can’t wait! Thank you for all your recipes!

    Not sure if it’s just me, but after I put the rolls in the oven I realized the instructions didn’t say when to put milk in. I used all purpose flour, baking powder and salt. The dough is thin and hard, not fluffy- assuming I missed the milk ingredient correct?

      Reply Drizzle April 8, 2020 at 7:23 pm

      Hi Taylor, the milk is for the icing glaze, not the dough, the dough is known as the two ingredient dough it will be different than the typical store-bought dough you might be used to

    I like the idea of this dough. But had a huge struggle with the stickiness. It was very frustrating to work with. I was using so much extra flour to deal with the sticky that the outside of the rolls were white with flour and dry and hard. We pealed away the outside and the inside of the rolls were moist and delicious. I must have done something wrong. Do you knead this dough alot or a little? I kneaded a little…

    • Drizzle
      Reply Drizzle April 27, 2020 at 8:44 pm

      I don’t knead it too much but I do have to have some flour down on my surface, try adding a touch less flour than you do yogurt, sometimes I find the different brands of yogurt will affect it as well, glad you enjoyed the rolls πŸ™‚

    Made these tonight for the first time. Followed exact recipe using Kroger self rising and chobani non fat. The dough was a little sticky but most dough is. I baked for 16 minutes but they were not quite ready. Added 3 more minutes and they were perfectly cooked. Flavor was good. Of course not Pillsbury but good

      Hi Barbra, egg wash won’t ruin it if you go lightly, what about a little honey, you could water it down a bit too so it spreads over all of them, or a sugar free maple syrup maybe?

    Iv made these once before and forgot about them, till I came across it just now. Definitely got to make them again
    I use the same dough (I’m on ww) for pizza also however with my daughter having a dairy allergy I use water instead of yoghurt which still works fine, for a bit more bready texture I add a bit of dry yeast.
    Thanks for the reminder πŸ‘πŸ½
