After making another batch of my Healthy Homemade Maple Syrup I had to keep going…  I couldn’t stop!  I wanted more of that syrupy goodness in my life.  Much more.  But why stop at just the maple flavor?

Cinnamon Rolls sounded pretty darn good, so I made a syrup that both smelled and tasted like that familiar weekend breakfast treat.  Soft and doughy and buttery and cinnamon-y and rich and decadent…  mmmm, I’m dying for a bite of my Healthified Cinnamon Rolls right now!

But because I’m too impatient to wait for two and a half hours of dough proofing time, and while I’m too busy to patiently roll out a rectangle of yeasty doughy goodness, I can make this Healthy Cinnamon Roll Syrup instead.  It’s like a cinnamon roll you can pour all over yourself your breakfast or dessert!

Yes, I said breakfast, because that’s how healthy this easy 5-ingredient syrup is — it’s sugar free, fat free, low carb, gluten free and vegan!  Oh, and it’s only 4.5 calories per tablespoon.  BOOYAH!
