Sugar-free Cinnabites

Sugar-Free Cinnabites

Everybody loves a good cinnamon roll; soft and warm on the inside, chewy on the outside- the perfect comfort food. With the same mouth-watering cinnamon taste, these Sugar-free Cinnabites make a fantastic substitute. They are great for finger food, breakfast, or a scrumptious dessert! You could even try topping them with a healthy cream cheese frosting for added indulgence.

  • 1/2 cup of plain amasai, or organic plain yogurt
  • 1/4 cup of erythritol (like Swerve) or stevia to taste
  • 2 organic eggs

  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda


  • 2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons of erythritol (like Swerve), xylitol or stevia to taste
  • 2 tablespoons of organic unsalted butter or coconut butter, melted

    These sound delicious. Is there a non-dairy alternative?

    I prefer to use Xylitol (from non-GMO corn) and coconut milk/cream. Usually works all the time when substituted.
