Ingredients & Substitutions

You only need 6 ingredients for this easy cinnamon roll, you can make it vegan too!

Plain Flour – I do not recommend substituting this with different flour. I have made it using gluten-free flour, it worked but the dough was harder to work with.

Protein Powder – You can use any flavour you like. I use this vegan vanilla protein powder one (you can use KITS5 for a discount – not an affiliate link). You can replace this with more plain flour if you don’t want to use protein powder.

Baking Powder – Cannot be replaced with baking soda or bicarbonate of soda.

Greek Yoghurt – use any thick yoghurt, you can use a vegan greek style yoghurt, coconut yoghurt or soy yoghurt. If your yoghurt is runnier than greek yoghurt (see video), start by using half the amount stated in the recipe and add more as needed to create the right dough consistency (again, see video!)

For the Filling – Sugar or Sweetener and Cinnamon.

How To Make A Single-Serve Cinnamon Roll

Jump to Video

Start by combining the flour, protein powder and baking powder.

Add in your yoghurt. If your yoghurt is runnier than greek yoghurt (see video below), start by using half the amount stated in the recipe and add more as needed to create the right dough consistency (again, see video below!)

Mix it up as much as you can, then tip it onto a board or plate dusted with some flour, and knead it until it can form a ball. If the mixture is too wet or sticky add a sprinkle of more flour. once you can form a ball, roll the dough between your palms to create a cylinder. Place the cylinder back on the board and roll it out. You can use a rolling pin, wine bottle or simply a glass.

Form a strip of around 20cm x 10 cm, then slice it down the middle and join the two ends to create one long strip of about 40cm x 5cm.

Combine some sugar or sweetener with cinnamon and sprinkle it over the length of the dough. Spread it out and lightly press it into the dough. Roll the dough up into a scroll, place it into a greased ramekin and bake!

You can make a frosting if you like – I combined some yoghurt with icing sugar and dusted it with more cinnamon!

How to Store a Single-Serve Cinnamon Roll

If you don’t plan on eating this cinnamon roll immediately, you can store it in an air-tight container in the fridge. When you’re ready to eat it you can either pop it in the microwave for a couple of seconds or serve it cold. Add yoghurt topping just before serving.

All of the recipes I create are tried and tested a few times until it has been perfected. My goal is to develop recipes that are simple to make and easy to follow so that anyone can make them – even if you’ve never baked before!

One very important thing that will ensure that you get the best results is to measure your ingredients by weight! I recommend purchasing a kitchen scale, they are very affordable and it will honestly change your baking game for good! Not all measuring cups are made equally – for example, a cup of flour to me weighs 120g, but for you, it may be anywhere between 100g and 200g – that’s a BIG difference!

If you don’t have a kitchen scale yet, you can use this Ingredient Weight Chart as a guideline to convert the ingredients to help you!

Now – dust your apron off and get baking! X
