I am not here to profess that these are actually wholesome! But I have created a recipe here that is actually lighter in calories and fat than any other cinnamon bun I’ve seen out there! The dough itself is milchig. It contains light sour cream which is 35% lower in calories and has half the fat of regular sour cream. The dough also has only 1/2 cup of oil. I relied on the sour cream and apple juice to give it moisture. It is also a whole wheat dough (or half whole wheat if you prefer).
I know what you’re thinking, “If I’m eating cake it might as well be the real thing!” Well, you will not be able to tell the difference (and neither will your kids)! When you bite into one of these, all you will be able to think is: “Yummy, heavenly.... I want another one!”
Yields 36 buns.
