Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

Now you can see how easy it is to make soft and gooey homemade cinnamon rolls from scratch. My simple recipe is as healthy as I can make it, using only two tablespoons of butter in the whole thing. There’s nothing like that rich enticing aroma that comes from the sweet brown sugar and cinnamon filling. The smell of cinnamon rolls baking in the oven is the best thing ever! This is an easy one-rise recipe so it won’t take long to have them on the table but you can also prepare the rolls the night before, refrigerate them overnight, then rise and bake them in the morning.

You don’t have to avoid cinnamon rolls (well, maybe at the mall… I would avoid those!). Most cinnamon rolls are made with lots of butter but try my healthy recipe and see how good they can be with very little butter or if you want to avoid saturated fat altogether, I often make them with a trans fat-free margarine (Canola Harvest) and I swear no one can tell the difference. So yes, you can have delicious, soft and yummy cinnamon rolls with not butter at all.

Serve these warm and you will never have leftovers. Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

    Hi Jenny, I’ve been a long time fan of your talk show when I was a young little girl, and now I’m in my mid 30’s! The recipe was “easy cinnamon rolls”. you mentioned you’re going to use your new gadget….a stand mixer timer. Where can I purchase one?

    Can you rise and let these rolls bake these on a cookie sheet?

    Hello Jenny,
    I made your cinnamon rolls today and they turned out great! I think I need to get a little larger round pan because they were gigantic.
    Thank you for sharing your recipe.

    I am pleased that there is no salt and not much sugar other than the topping.

    Can I use fast acting yeast.will the recipe be ,or taste any different ?

    • Jenny

      The recipe indicates that instant yeast can be used. I believe it’s the same as fast acting.

    • Stacy Fletcher

      Fast Acting IS the same as instant yeast (rapid rise) as well as “bread machine yeast” is instant yeast.. definitely you can use any..
