When I think about my favourite straight-out-of-the-oven, healthy, high-protein dessert, my mouth waters thinking about these Pumpkin Protein Cinnamon Rolls!!


Typically, cinnamon rolls take a fair bit of time to prep - because you usually need to wait for the yeast to rise and proof before you can start rolling out your dough. But, you know I love an easy recipe... and this was just that - no active yeast, so no waiting for this gooey, delicious pumpkin bliss.



WHICH PROTEIN POWDER DO I USE?


I absolutely loved making these, but wished I had the Vanilla Protein Powder from Garden on Life on hand when we were shooting this recipe. Instead I used their chocolate flavour (which is actually technically my fave flavour!), and it still tasted just as great! The only difference was that it came out with more of a darker, richer, “mocha” look - while the Vanilla would have really brought out the orange colour from the pumpkin for a more vibrant look. But as I said, SAME GREAT TASTE!



FOR ALL MY VEGAN FRIENDS:


If you’re currently eating a vegan diet, I promise, you’re not left out of this one at all! The base of the cinnamon rolls is entirely vegan since I found the butter easily interchangeable with plant-based butter. For the icing, simply swap out the one I used for this recipe with another plant-based icing (a quick Google search will do!) and you’ll be good to go!
