Super easy and delicious, these no yeast 2 ingredient dough Cinnamon Rolls are made with whole wheat flour for a healthy alternative to the store bough option. With no rising time needed, you can have your cinnamon bun fix in under an hour!

I love love love cinnamon rolls and can probably finish an entire batch in one meal. Yes, that much!

But I really can’t stand all that sugar on the labels from any of that stuff you get at the bakery. And there’s also the white/ all purpose flour which I’m not too big a fan of either.

So of course I had to come up with a healthified version of my own using whole wheat flour.

But you see I’m also super lazy, so all that waiting for a rise with using yeast and such was going to be too long for your girl here.

Solution? Quick cinnamon rolls that don’t need any yeast or waiting. Just mix, roll and bake! Literally the dream here.

  • 1 cup Whole Wheat Flour, 120g
  • 1½ tsp Baking Powder
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 1 cup Plain Greek Yogurt, or Coconut Yogurt, 200g
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Stevia Sweetener, 5 tsp sugar worth (Use your brand's Conversion Chart)


  • 1½ tsp Butter or Olive Oil, Divided
  • ¼ cup 1:1 Brown Sugar Substitute, or regular Brown/Coconut Sugar
  • 1 Tbsp Cinnamon


  • 1 Tbsp Greek Yogurt, about 12g
  • ⅛ tsp Vanilla Extract
  • Stevia Sweetener, ½ tsp sugar worth (Use your brand's Conversion Chart)
  • ½ tsp Almond Milk, Optional


Preheat oven to 350°F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mix flour and baking powder until combined well.
In another bowl, mix yogurt, vanilla and sweetener.
Add yogurt and mix using a spoon until it forms small chunks of dough.
Transfer to a work surface and use hands to make a ball of dough. Add a tsp of yogurt at a time if the dough is too dry, and more flour if too sticky. DO NOT OVERMIX.
Place the dough on a lightly floured surface and roll into a large rectangle (flour the rolling pin) about ¼” thick and 9½”x 6½” size with the longer side facing you.
Melt butter and brush most of it over the dough. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and sprinkle over butter.
Gently roll up the dough from the long end (towards you) until it meets the other end. Roll tight!
Cut log into 9 pieces - about 1 inch thick - using a sharp knife and place each piece (cut side up) in prepared pan. Brush the tops with remaining butter.
Bake for 30-35 minutes until edges puff up and lightly browned.
Let cool completely 10 minutes.
To glaze, stir together yogurt, vanilla, sweetener, and milk if using, drizzle over cinnamon rolls, and enjoy!
