Protein Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls

A great morning treat! These provide a large amount of protein as well, so it would be a great quick breakfast or mid morning snack while at work. They taste best warm with a maple yogurt sauce or pumpkin yogurt sauce on top!

Ingredients: (makes 5 rolls-can be doubled/tripled)

¼ c. canned pumpkin puree

1 ½ scoops vanilla protein powder

2 tbsp coconut flour (could sub oat flour/almond meal? But haven’t tried it)

1/3 cup egg whites

½ tsp baking powder

2-3 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

Splash of almond milk

Optional: 1 tsp of vanilla or maple extract

Combine all ingredients in a bowl until thoroughly mixed. It should have a dough-like consistency (in between a pancake batter and a cookie dough). Pour into your silicone baking liners, or well sprayed muffin tins.

Bake at 375F for approximately 10 minutes. Do not overbake, they will get dry 🙁 They should look slightly undercooked. Recipe should make 4-5 rolls.
