So I had a huge craving for cinnamon rolls over the weekend, and while I’d love to have had the time to make them, I just didn’t. So, I decided with the time that I had, I was going to fulfill that craving and stay on track.
I’m working on a yeast recipe (I recently learned that the sugar in bread making and imperative for yeast to ferment, reacts in a way that the carbs are not going to affect you as negatively as you think) that is amazing and I can’t wait to share it with all of you.
For this particular recipe, it’s important to let the batter rest before you place it in the waffle maker. Letting it rest makes the end result crispy and fuffy and worth the wait.
If you love, love cinnamon rolls, but don’t have a lot of time, this is for you!
- 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 2 tbsp powdered sweetener ( I use swerve)
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- *optional: a little orange juice with a topping of orange zest if you are craving orange cinnamon rolls
- 1 ounce cream cheese, softened
- 1 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
- 1 large egg
- 1 tbsp sour cream
- 1/4 c shredded mozzarella
- pinch of salt
- 1 tbsp granulated sweetener
- 1 tbsp brown sugar (I use swerve or sukron gold)
- 2 tsp cinnamon (or more to taste)
- 1/2 tsp ground ginger (this helps with setting the dough and you’ll hardly notice it)
- 2 tbsp golden flaxseed meal
- 2 tbsp almond flour
- 1/2 tbsp coconut flour
Preheat your waffle maker!
After your butter and cream cheese have softened, mix the sugar and sour cream in and mix until the sugar has mostly dissolved.
(You can soften them in the microwave. The cream cheese softens at 30 seconds at 30% power and the butter softens at 45 seconds 30% power. Don’t put them in at the same time or your cream cheese will pop everywhere)
Next, add the egg and vanilla extract
In a separate bowl, mix together all the dry ingredients and spices then slowly mix it into the wet.
Last, add the shredded mozzarella and let the batter rest for 5 minutes
While the batter is resting, mix all your ingredients for the icing and then place it into a small baggy. A trick to this, is folding the top of the baggy over the cup, like this:
Once your waffle maker is preheated and your batter has rested, pour it into the waffle maker and cook for 3 minutes on each side. You can cook it longer if you prefer more of a crispy crunch.
The waffle batter will be crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside once it is cooked.
And then, we eat! In less than 15 minutes, it’s deliciousness will grace your lips.
