3-Ingredient Cinnamon Buns

3-Ingredient Cinnamon Buns

Hi guys!

During quarantine I've spent a ton of time experimenting with "healthy desserts."  It's surprising how many healthy alternatives there are to traditional dessert recipes!

I'm in the process of writing a cookbook- it's most likely going to be called "Have Your Cake and Eat It Too." I say this phrase all the time because why can't you have dessert without the consequences??

Ok, so, let's get to these blueberry cinnamon buns! I found this idea on Instagram, then I went ahead and changed it a bit. It takes about 20 minutes to prepare and bakes for 20 minutes.

What you'll need:

  • 1 cup self-rising flour (any kind)
  • 1 cup vanilla greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • cinnamon & sugar 


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Mix all ingredients except blueberries together in large bowl
  • Roll dough into long rods about 7 inches long
  • Roll rods up into bun shape then cover in cinnamon & sugar
  • Top the buns with blueberries/tuck some into the buns
  • Butter/spray a small cake pan then place buns together in pan
  • Bake for 20 minutes 

Optional yogurt glaze:

  • 1/2 cup vanilla greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup sweetened almond milk (or any kind of milk)
  • 1 tbsp agave


  • In small bowl, mix yogurt, milk, and agave together until slightly runny
  • Pour over buns once they have cooled down
