weight watcher fat cinnamon rolls


For the dough:

  • 2 1/4 teaspoons (1 packet) active dry yeast
  • 1 cup warm skim milk (110°F or 45°C)
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted

For the cinnamon sugar filling:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon

For the frosting:

  • 4 oz reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast in the warm skim milk. Let it sit for about 5 minutes, or until it becomes frothy.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the sugar, melted butter, and salt. Add the yeast mixture and stir.
  3. Gradually add the flour, 1/2 cup at a time, until the dough comes together. Knead the dough on a floured surface until it’s smooth and elastic.
  4. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover it, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until it has doubled in size.
  5. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and prepare a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  6. Roll out the dough into a rectangle, about 12×9 inches.
  7. Brush the melted butter evenly over the dough, leaving a small border around the edges.
  8. In a small bowl, mix the granulated sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the buttered dough.
  9. Roll the dough up from the long side to create a log.
  10. Cut the log into 12 even slices.
  11. Place the rolls in the prepared baking dish and bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.
  12. While the rolls are baking, prepare the frosting by mixing the softened reduced-fat cream cheese, powdered sugar, and vanilla extract until smooth.
  13. Once the cinnamon rolls are done, let them cool for a few minutes, then spread the frosting on top.
