Healthy Cinnamon Roll Scones

What do you get when a cinnamon roll and a scone get combined with a healthy twist? This healthy treat!


1 ½ cups whole wheat flour

2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 ½ tsp. baking powder

1/4 cup salted butter, cold and cubed

½ cup; nonfat Greek yogurt, Vanilla or Plain flavored

1 tsp. vanilla extract

2 Tbsp. milk

1 egg

1/3 cup Splenda® Naturals Sugar & Stevia Blend

For the glaze:

1/4 cup reduced fat cream cheese; softened

1/4 cup Splenda® Naturals Sugar & Stevia Blend

2 Tbsp. whole milk

1/2 tsp. vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F, and line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  2. With a stand mixer, mix together the whole wheat flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Cut in the butter in cubes and add to the mixture- the mixture will resemble fine crumbs. Stir in the Greek yogurt, vanilla, milk, egg, and Splenda® Naturals Sugar & Stevia Blend.The dough will be light and it will form into a ball.
  3. Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet, and shape into a ¾” tall circle using a spatula. Slice the circle into 8 triangular segments with a sharp knife. Bake for 15-18 minutes, or until the tops are lightly golden. Transfer on a cooling rack and let cool completely.
  4. In the meantime, you can make the drizzle! Stir together the cream cheese, milk, and Splenda® Naturals Sugar & Stevia Blend in a small bowl. If you want a thinner glaze, add more milk. Mix until the glaze is lump-free and smooth. Transfer the glaze mixture to a zip-topped bag, and cut off a tiny piece of one corner. Drizzle the top of each scone and enjoy this healthful treat!

If I were to splurge on one thing from Starbucks it would be on one of their tasty scones I always look at when I’m standing in line or a cinnamon bun. I remember way back in the day before I really even knew what calories were, I would order a scone occasionally when I went to Starbucks. I mean, who wouldn’t love a buttery pastry loaded with sugar- am I right? I often browse through Pinterest when I can on my phone throughout the day. Tons and tons of tasty treats overflow through my Pinterest feed and I’m also so tempted to make everything I see. When I received the this free sample of SPLENDA® Naturals Sugar & Stevia Blend I knew I wanted to make a healthy version of one of my favorite treats.  Breakfast scones always sound like a good idea. This time I made them with a healthy twist! These cinnamon roll scone treats are made with SPLENDA® Naturals Sugar & Stevia Blend and yogurt! Breakfast for me during the week is definitely a grab-and-go and these were perfect!



Cinnamon Roll French Toast Bake

This recipe makes for the perfect brunch dish or even side dish! There is nothing better than the sweet aroma of cinnamon rolls baking in the morning. I prepped everything the day before and when it was time to bake I just poured my egg mixture over the cinnamon rolls and popped it in the oven. SO easy!

This dish makes great leftovers, just heat em’ up and enjoy. If you are wanting to eat this as a dessert- skip the frosting part and add a scoop (or two) of vanilla ice-cream. If you wanted to switch it up and add some savory flavor to this dish, sprinkle crumbled bacon on top and in-between the cinnamon roll pieces before placing it in the oven.

2 Tbsp. melted butter

1/2 cup whole milk

4 large eggs

2 tsp. vanilla extract

2 Tbsp. maple syrup

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

  2. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, vanilla extract, syrup and cinnamon until combined.
  3. Pour the egg mixture evenly on the cinnamon rolls. Melt one of the icings and pour over the cinnamon rolls. Bake for 45 minutes if using a 13 x 9 inch dish and 1 hour if using a 8 x 8 inch dish.

Tip- If you see the top of the cinnamon rolls browning before the cook time is over, place foil on top to ensure the bottom of the rolls will still continue to bake and the rest won't burn.

I have always been a huge fan of cinnamon rolls and I probably always will…This is an easy dish to put together and everyone will love it. After all, who doesn’t like anything that involves cinnamon rolls? Definitely not me!.. I feel like weekends are an exception to indulge every once in a while so why not make something that everyone will love and enjoy?!
