Healthy cinnamon rolls - "Franzbrötchen" meets cinnamon bun

Healthy cinnamon rolls – Franzbrötchen meets cinnamon bun

My new favorite dessert: Healthy cinnamon rolls. I grew up in Hamburg and that thought me to love “Franzbrötchen” almost with breast milk.

But cinnamon buns were just as well a highlight among the pastries for me. Generally, cinnamon is just one of my absolute weaknesses.

That’s why I thought cinnamon pastries have to become healthy. So why not a compromise between Franzbrötchen and Cinnamon Bun ? However, since both have just too many calories, my task was not so easy. In the end, though, I think I did it! The result was this super tasty healthy cinnamon roll recipe.
