Jamie Eason's LiveFit Recipes: Cinnamon Swirl Protein Bread

Holy wow! A cinnamon swirl bread that tastes this good AND is healthy? Join me in the BB.com kitchen for a cooking lesson!

The only thing better than the aroma of coffee wafting through the house first thing in the morning is the smell of freshly baked cinnamon rolls. As a kid, nothing could get me down the stairs for breakfast faster! Though it's been ages since I've actually had the kind of cinnamon rolls my mom would bake, I can still remember the warm buttery goodness with hints of vanilla, cinnamon, and sugar icing.

Of course, these days, indulgences like that are few and far between for me. Though it may not lessen the allure of a Cinnabon at the mall, my own cinnamon swirl protein bread satisfies that urge. Not only does it fill the house with the aroma of cinnamon and vanilla, but it also provides additional protein and has far fewer calories. Eat this scrumptious bread first thing in the morning or pack it to accompany meals throughout the day!

I froze mine - put into a ziploc baggie - they would be fine by lunchtime. Or the refrigerator - I wouldn't leave out more than 1 day.

@ Misty- there are no preservatives in these so you can't leave them out, put them in the fridge or freezer

Can I substitute nut flour/coconut flour for recipes that call for a grain type flour?

I was just thinking about this. I would say that nut flour would make a better substitute than coconut as coconut flour requires SO much liquid. :) I'm gonna give it a shot with some almond flour. :)

Just made these little guys!! Yummy. I didn't have Xylitol so I used splenda. I also didn't have oat flour so I used whole wheat flour (1/2) and Whole wheat pastry flour (1/2). I think that oat flour makes them a little more moist but still good this way. Not too sweet. Does everyone think that we can eat 4 of these just like the protein bars in place of the turkey balls???
