    I LOVE using white whole wheat flour to make cinnamon rolls, so I am totally ALL over these! And since they’re skinny, I can eat 6. Love it.

    Anything involving overnight and cinnamon rolls is a WIN in my book!

    Would they work the same if I used regular wheat flour, not white whole wheat flour?

    Hi I was wondering if you weren’t to refrigerate how long do you leave the cinnamon rolls out for to rise ?

    My dough didn’t rise? Was I suppose to mix the yeast first?

    For those asking about a calorie count, I calculated 175 per roll, give or take depending on brands of ingredients. So for anyone counting calories, these aren’t that “skinny”, I guess better than eating a cinnamon roll from a restaurant or bakery I’m sure, but pilsbury grands cinnamon rolls are 140 calories per roll (I looked up on their site to compare).
