Cinnamon Rolls

Okay, so my bloggy buddy Kami posted a recipe for cinnamon rolls on her blog. I looked at the recipe and thought "I can make those healthier but still make them taste yummy." So, I showed Kirstyn the picture, she licked her lips and said, "Yummy, Let's make them!"

Well, I made them. I used all whole wheat flour, Motts no sugar added applesauce (in place of the egg because of Kirstyn's allergy), I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Light, and so on. Anyway, we made them and they looked and smelled fabulous. I also put them in the recipe builder on the WW web site and found out that they were down to only 2 pts per roll.

We had them for dessert that night after dinner. I liked them, David really liked them, James got all sticky enjoying one, and Kirstyn took one bite and spit it out. She said, "THIS is NOT DeeDee's Recipe! I should have known something was wrong when we didn't open a can!"

I laughed soooooo hard. Because, if you know my mom you know how funny this is, but if you don't you should know that DeeDee makes almost everything from scratch and always has except for cinnamon rolls when she has the grandkids spending the night! That's when mom breaks out the can of Pillsbury reduced fat cinnamon rolls!

so the whole roll was 2 points? or the roll was DOWN only 2 points from where I am sure it was like 10 million to start...?

That was a cute story. However posts about cinnamon rolls are sooo tempting me in a baaaad way right now. LOL. Don't worry - I won't cave yet though.

Way to go Natalie, but I am curious, how many points would they be the way I made them?

Or do I want to know?

2 points is awesome.

And that is hilarious! They are more like a biscuit so I can see where she would notice the diff compared to Philbury's ;-)
