What ingredients do I need to make this Cinnamon Roll Casserole?

  • Self rising flour or Kodiak Pancake Mix-The Kodiak Pancake Mix is lower in points and the overall point value per serving would decrease if you use that instead of the self rising flour. You can use King Arthur Gluten-free pancake mix for a gluten-free option.
  • Zero point granulated sugar substitute – I use Lakanto Classic Monk Fruit Sweetener Save 20% on all sale items with promo code: Pound20
  • Vanilla extract 
  • Ground cinnamon
  • Unsweetened almond milk or skim milk 
  • Large eggs or 4 egg whites
  • Light butter, melted –I use Land O’ Lakes light butter made with canola oil
  • All purpose flour– for the topping. You could use the Kodiak Pancake Mix as a substitute.
  • Zero point brown sugar substitute– I use Lakanto Golden Monkfruit Sweetener Save 20% on all sale items with promo code: Pound20. Order HERE.

Instead of the sugar free frosting you can make your own by mixing these ingredients together:

  • 1 Tbsp light butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar substitute (Lakanto Powdered)
  • 2 Tbsp skim milk (or hot water, for desired consistency)
  •  1/2 tsp vanilla extract

Hi Majorie!

Yes, this recipe freezes great. Just store in an airtight bag or container for up to 2 months in the freezer-thaw overnight in the fridge and reheat in the microwave. I recommend add the frosting after freezing.

Thanks!

I made these for Christmas morning and they were better than the real thing (which I had for the skinny people in my life). I used sugar free vanilla icing for the top and mixed everything together because I didn’t read the instructions first and OMG soooo good!!!!
