If you have not tried the two-ingredient dough yet you really need to jump on the wagon! There are so many things you can make with this easy to make dough!

HOW TO MAKE TWO-INGREDIENT DOUGH
Making the two-ingredient dough is so simple, you just need 2 ingredients
Tip- Only have all-purpose flour on hand, simply mix in 2 tsp of baking powder for every 1 cup of all-purpose, and add a pinch of salt.
Tips for making the best two-ingredient dough
The dough should be tacky but not sticky, if you can’t knead the dough without it sticking to your hands then add a little more flour. I typically will add just a little more flour than yogurt when making the dough even though it calls for a 50/50 ratio.
You definitely need greek yogurt, regular yogurt won’t be thick enough and you won’t get the same results from it.
Be sure to flour your surface when rolling out the dough, and add a little flour to the rolling pin.
You can make this dough ahead of time and refrigerate it until you are ready to use it.
If you wish to replace the brown sugar with a sugar substitute such as a Splenda brown sugar or similar that will work fine. If you are doing so to save on WW points if you follow WW then be sure to build the recipe in your WW app to get the accurate point value.
When you are ready to cut the cinnamon rolls, cut in the middle first, this will help ensure even pieces.
SOME IDEAS ON WHAT YOU CAN MAKE WITH THE TWO-INGREDIENT DOUGH.
Pizza crust *Here is one of my recipes for a delicious chicken & spinach alfredo pizza using the 2ID
Pie crust *I made this amazing apple pie using the 2ID
You can also experiment and use it in recipes that might call for biscuits, like some of my famous bubble-up dishes.
Two ingredient dough cinnamon rolls
- 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
- 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.
These cinnamon rolls are best enjoyed the day they are baked. The two-ingredient dough does not hold up well after a day or two I find. You can freeze them the same day and I like to reheat them in the air fryer after defrosting them.
