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

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 18 minutes
Total Time 28 minutes
Servings 12

Ingredients

  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1 cup non fat plain greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp icing sugar (confectionary sugar)
  • 2 tsp milk

Instructions 

  • Preheat oven to 375F, line a baking sheet with some parchment paper, I also spray the paper lightly.
  • 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
  • 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"
  • 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.
  • Place cut pieces onto the baking sheet and bake in the oven for 18 minutes or until they look golden brown on top.
  • 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?

      You can use any sugar you want as long as you add the points correctly, I only know the point value as I made them

    Just made them for the first time came out too small, maybe next time will have to do 10?

      I made 8 rolls and they were closer to regular size than 12 mini rolls.

      Thanks for the recipe!

    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.

      I used Swerve confectioners sugar (zero calories). Do you know if that will reduce the number of points?

        Hi Jacki, I’m not sure if overall it will lower each roll, but you could build the recipe in the WW app to see for sure if it did

    If I’m using all purpose flour how much baking powder and salt would I add?

    • Drizzle
      Drizzle Reply

      I think it is 1 tsp baking powder to 1 cup.. and salt maybe 1/2 tsp

    • Avatar

      1 cup of flour to 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
      Yes they can be frozen
      Unbleached white flour is best

      How can I make the icing? I dont have icing sugar or any frostings at home. I have cream cheese and regular sugar.
      Thank you

        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

          Jeff Norris Reply

          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

      I would think so, I’ve only tried them in the oven but they should turn out in the air fryer πŸ™‚

    I baked these in my oven for like 25 mins and it was still like the dough was raw. Any tips?

      Hmmm, I’m not too sure, mine did not take that long, maybe the dough was too thick?

    Am I the only one that struggles with this dough being too sticky? I add flour to my wax paper and my hands but still struggle making it look pretty. Mine were more like cinnamon puffs instead of rolls% πŸ˜‰

      I typically don’t have an issue, I add a little more flour to my surface and I am good

      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.

    How do you keep the cinnamon sugar from falling out? After I cut mine and picked them up to put on pan a lot of the cinnamon sugar fell out.

      Once they are rolled up I did not have that issue, maybe you need to roll the dough a bit tighter?

      If you want it to be zero points for WW it needs to be 0% otherwise yes it should still work for the dough

      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?

      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

    Wow, these are incredible! Perfect bite and sweetness – can’t tell they are WW friendly. Mine turned out a bit smaller (made 16). Thanks!

    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
      Drizzle Reply

      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™‚

    So,… I grabbed the sour cream instead of the Greek yogurt. 😬 they are in the oven as we speak. I will keep you informed πŸ€¦πŸ»β€β™€οΈπŸ€·πŸ»β€β™€οΈ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 Debra, I am not sure regular yogurt is thick enough to use in the 2 ingredient dough, you can try but my guess would be it wouldn’t hold up as well

    Just made them for the 1st time just waiting for them to cool down its also first time I actually made something without dropping it my husband put them in the oven then I glazed them with the icing sugar

    Are you able to bake them in a muffin tin? Or is baking them flat the best way to go?

      You could probably bake them in a muffin tin as they won’t be as big as the space in a muffin tin and will bake pretty much the same πŸ™‚

    Hi. I used the same recipe for bagels. I’m going to try cinnamon rolls, but I do not like icing. Any suggestions to replace the icing/ glaze? I thought egg wash but nit sure if it will ruin product. Thanks

    • Drizzle
      Drizzle Reply

      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

      Hi, Oh that is interesting that it still works out with water, thanks for sharing πŸ™‚ I’m glad you enjoy the cinnamon rolls

  22. Avatar

    Thanks so much for the inspiration. I’ve used this dough for some savory things with great results but never in a sweet recipe. How does the same dough give such different results? You don’t have to add anything to the dough itself to change the texture or taste?

    • Drizzle
      Drizzle Reply

      NO you don’t need to add anything extra, the sugar will sweeten it up, that said they are not as sweet as say a store bough version, but for myself they do the trick πŸ™‚ hope you enjoy them

    Has anyone tried the rolls using semisweet chocolate chips? Instead of sugar and cinnamon.
