15 Minute Healthier Cinnamon Rolls

This recipe came about to use up 'party sandwich' bread (flat and crustless) Little A made me buy her. I should have known she wouldn't eat much of it. This has happened before with this bread (and a million other things). She says she wants to make party sandwiches but then we get home and she remembers she hates egg salad, tuna salad, etc., she makes a regular sandwich using it, remembers it's not ideal for that because the fillings tend to fall out, and then she leaves the rest over.

Hence 15 minute cinnamon rolls.

Since I abhor throwing away food, I decided I had to find another use for them and this was a total winner. And it really takes just 15 minutes! You don't need to measure anything. We made them in the toaster oven so you don't even need a real oven to make them.

15 Minute Healthier Cinnamon Rolls

4 slices 100% whole wheat party sandwich bread
Butter or whatever facsimile you prefer
Golden granulated monk fruit or coconut sugar
Ground cinnamon

Spread bread with butter or whatever. Sprinkle liberally with sweetener and cinnamon and roll up tightly and pinching ends so they don't unroll. Cut each one in half or into 3 pieces and place in greased baking dish. Place in oven or toaster oven at 375F for about 7-10 minutes making sure they do not burn. Remove from oven.

Optional icing: Powdered erythritol (or powdered sugar), a few drops vanilla extract, water or milk. Drizzle over top.
