Protein Cinnamon Roll Recipe


If you have a sweet tooth but don't want to be in a calorie overload there are tons of ways to make desserts more friendly to your diet. I love doing protein mug cakes and the one I'm showing you today is cinnamon roll!


Protein Cinnamon Roll Mug Cake
Macros: 3F/12C/27P 172 calories

1 scoop of vanilla or cinnamon protein powder
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 packet of Splenda
1/4 cup of milk
1/2  tsp vanilla flavor
1 tbsp Splenda brown sugar blend
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp Walden Farms Pancake Syrup

Mix the protein powder, baking powder and Splenda packet in a bowl or mug. Add milk and vanilla. Whisk vigorously with a fork until all chunks are gone. In a separate bowl, mix brown sugar, cinnamon and syrup. Pour into your cake batter in a swirl. Depending on your microwave, nuke for up to 1 minute (I find 45 seconds is about perfect). If you want to make a frosting, mix protein powder and milk in the same way you would make royal icing (about 1 tsp powder to 1/2 tsp milk) and spread on top.
