Wow, ok  seriouslyyyyyy this is MOUTH WATERING! and UNDER 200 calories! This is a super quick recipe for when you have a Cinnabon craving. All you need is a coffee mug and your microwave – no oven required!
CINNAMON ROLL (1 serving):
*4 TBSP of egg whites (or you can use 1 egg, calculations based off of egg whites)
*1/2 TBSP water
*1 tsp cinnamon
*1/2 tsp splenda or stevia (I calculated calories with splenda)
*1 heaping tablespoon of Chobani nonfat greek yogurt
*1/4 tsp vanilla extract
*a tiny pinch of splenda or stevia to taste (I calculated calories with splenda)
1. In a coffee mug, mix protein powder, egg white, water, cinnamon and sweetener till blended well.
2. Place in the microwave for about 45 seconds. The batter will rise a ton so make sure you keep an eye on it so it doesn’t spill over. If it is not ready when you take it out just place in the microwave again for 10 seconds at a time until firm.
3. Flip over onto a plate and cut in 2!
4. For the fitness frosting, simply mix your Chobani greek yogurt, sweetener and vanilla extract together until smooth. Then top your little guys.
5. Sprinkle with a little more cinnamon on top for the Cinnabon effect.
6. EAT!!!!

  1. Hey Katie- A friend threw a friend (isn't that how it usually goes) Page Michog --> Laura Cort recommended you as inspiration for Beach Body- I tried this recipe out- it's crazy sounding but it turned out. I tried it with one egg (w/ yolk) it was more dense and dry. I'm assuming the egg whites would keep it fluffy and more moist.

  2. Yayyy thats awesome! Thank you for trying it!! =)
