80(ish)--- Greek Yogurt Cinnamon Rolls

Inspired by the amazing Skinny Taste bagel recipe (hello air fryer), these cinnamon rolls are the perfect little treat.  

Yes that really is the ingredient list.

No, they don't need to rise prior to baking.

Yes it's really that simple.  And delicious!

Greek Yogurt Cinnamon Rolls
Makes 6

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour, divided
1 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp white sugar
1 egg white, beaten
3 Tbsp brown sugar
2 Tbsp butter
1/2 Tbsp ground cinnamon
Dash salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray a small baking dish with baking spray.

Combine 1 1/4 cups flour, baking powder, sugar, and Greek yogurt in a mixing bowl.  Stir with a spatula until combined, then use your hands to gently knead until a dough is formed.  Use remaining flour to lightly flour a rolling surface, then transfer dough to the surface.  Knead just until a solid dough is formed, adding a few additional dashes of flour if needed.  Use a rolling pin to roll the dough into square, 1/4-1/2" thickness.

In a microwave-safe dish combine butter, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt.  Microwave for 45-60 seconds, or until butter is melted.  Mix well.

Spoon butter mixture over the dough, then roll the dough into a log.  Cut into six even slices and transfer into the baking dish. Brush rolls with a beaten egg white.

Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until dough is cooked through and tops are golden brown.

Glaze if desired and serve warm.
