There’s nothing like waking up on a lazy Saturday morning to the smell of cinnamon rolls. It’s the same scent that makes passing Cinnabon in the mall a true test of willpower. And while they’re definitely not the picture of health (sugar and dough are the two main ingredients, after all), that doesn’t mean you have to totally write off cinnamon buns. We found vegan, gluten-free, dairy-free, and fruit-filled cinnamon roll recipes that make the treat a tad bit healthier. There’s even a Paleo version, proving anything is possible in the world of healthy eating. Go ahead and dig in.
This is the breakfast roll we never knew we needed. Bananas make the rolls extra fluffy, and the maple cream cheese icing is basically a gift from above. Whip these up for a holiday, brunch, or just a happy Sunday.
