We all know that cinnamon rolls are delicious, but not necessarily nutritious. But did you know that you can make protein cinnamon rolls that give you the best of both worlds?

Well, you can.

As a matter of fact, we found an awesome recipe for baked protein cinnamon rolls, and we’re excited to share it with you. 

So, what is a protein cinnamon roll? They’re just like regular cinnamon rolls, except they are packed with protein and extra nutrients that your body needs to get through the day.

While most protein cinnamon rolls recipes are full of gluten, this low-carb, high-protein cinnamon roll recipe gives you a gluten-free option that doesn’t lose texture or flavor.

Baked Protein Cinnamon Rolls

While there are microwave mug cake recipes for high-protein cinnamon rolls, you get the best results from good old fashioned baking.

Not only does baking your protein cinnamon rolls deliver the comfort food feel that you’re looking for in such an indulgent treat, but it also fills your home with the warm smell of bakery goods.

This added layer of homemade flavor helps you satiate those sugary cravings while staying as healthy as possible.

What Is LadyBoss LEAN?

So, both of the recipes you see here have LadyBoss LEAN as the main ingredient. So, what is LadyBoss LEAN?

The short answer is: LadyBoss LEAN is one of the best-tasting protein supplements on the market. It tastes like vanilla cake on its own, but there is so much more to it.

LEAN gives you the vitamins and minerals your body needs throughout the day while offering a way to curb your sweet cravings.

You’ll notice that these recipes don’t contain a lot of extra sweeteners or sugars. That’s because LadyBoss LEAN has the sweetness that most other protein supplements lack.

That’s just one of the reasons LadyBoss LEAN is so perfect for baking.
