Making Cinnamon Rolls using a two-ingredient dough


Fresh, homemade Cinnamon Rolls for a yummy weekend breakfast or brunch! The best part? The dough is super easy to make. Just use Greek Yogurt and Self-rising flour! 

My sons and I are big Cinnamon Roll fans. It's our fav breakfast for holidays and weekends. When I saw a simple recipe online using only two ingredients for the dough, I couldn't wait to try making them. They do take a little bit of time compared to the ones in the can, but it's well worth it! These also seem healthier than other Cinnamon Rolls since you use just yogurt and flour for the dough. They were fun to make, and I loved the way they turned out. One son rated them 50 out of 10 and the other son gave them 8 out of 10. I can work with that! 

I may just make them every weekend! I just have to make sure I always have Greek Yogurt on hand. Easy, peasy! 

I used the recipe from and adapted it. The only thing missing from their recipe was noting to roll out the dough on a floured surface. This makes a big difference, and the dough will be easier to handle and way less sticky. 

Cinnamon Rolls with 2-Ingredient Dough


3\4 cup non-fat greek yogurt

1 cup self-rising flour 


2 Tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

1 Teaspoon cinnamon

2 Tablespoons brown sugar


5 Tablespoons powdered sugar

4 Tablespoons milk, any kind 


Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a round 9 inch baking pan and set aside. In a large bowl, mix together greek yogurt and flour to form a ball of dough. On a floured surface, roll out dough by hand or with a rolling pin until you have a large rectangle shape. Set aside. 

For the Filling:

In a small bowl, stir together butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon for the filling and spread over dough evenly. Roll it up tightly so it doesn't break, then cut off the ends. Score the dough and cut it into 6 or 7 equal sections. Place the rolls cinnamon side up in the greased baking dish. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until tops are golden brown. I baked mine for 14 minutes. 

For the Glaze: 

Meanwhile, whisk together the powdered sugar and milk into a glaze and drizzle over the rolls. I waited about 5 minutes so the glaze wouldn't immediately melt. Then enjoy nice and warm with some coffee or maybe a Mimosa for brunch! Enjoy!
