Recipe Ingredients and Instructions: 

To get baking, continue reading from here for a detailed look including step-by-step instructions and a breakdown of the ingredient list.


  • 30g Peanut Butter Oatmeal Cookie MRP
  • 15g all purpose flour
  • 60g 2% Greek yogurt
  • 15g applesauce
  • 20g whipped cream cheese
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • Stevia to taste


  1. Start by combining your dry ingredients—the Core MRP, all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt—in a mixing bowl. Thoroughly blend them together, ensuring even distribution.

  2. Gradually add the Greek yogurt to the dry mixture while stirring continuously. Keep mixing until the ingredients combine, forming a dough-like consistency that's pliable and easy to work with.

  3. Shape the dough into a large ball, using your hands to bring it together.

  4. Sprinkle a dusting of additional flour onto your countertop or work surface. This prevents the dough from sticking as you roll it out. Gently flatten and roll the dough into a large rectangle, ensuring it maintains a uniform thickness.

  5. Meanwhile, preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius). This allows it to reach the optimal temperature for baking these delectable cinnamon rolls.

  6. Starting from one end of the rectangular dough, carefully roll it up onto itself, creating a tight and compact cinnamon roll log. The more precise and even the rolling, the better the swirls will be in your final product.

  7. Place the cinnamon roll log into a ramekin or baking dish that has been lightly sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. The snug fit of the log will help retain its shape during baking. Be sure to position the log with the open end facing upward to showcase the beautiful cinnamon swirls.

  8. Slide the baking dish into the preheated oven and let it bake for approximately 20 minutes. The aroma that fills your kitchen will make your taste buds dance with anticipation.

  9. While the cinnamon roll bakes to golden perfection, let's prepare the delectable toppings. Begin by mixing together the applesauce, cinnamon, and stevia, creating a flavorful spread that perfectly complements the warm, aromatic cinnamon rolls.

  10. In a separate bowl, combine the whipped cream cheese with stevia, gradually adding the sweetener of your choice until it reaches your preferred level of sweetness
