🍰 To celebrate World Baking Day, we’ve collated our favourite baking pack hacks from the last few weeks. Dig out your mixing bowl and weighing scales – it’s time to get creative in the kitchen! 


You will need:

  • 1x pack cinnamon shake
  • 20g self rising flour
  • Tsp Myvegan Xantham Gum
  • 50g non fat Greek yogurt
  • 25g unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 Tsp baking powder
  • 3-4 drops vanilla flavour drops
  • 20g light butter
  • 20g sweetener of choice (I used brown)
  • 2tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons powdered Erythritol
  • Tablespoon non fat yogurt
  • exante vanilla flavour drops
  • Splash sugar free almond milk in case the mixture it too thick


  • Mix the dry ingredients before adding the wet ingredients to form a slightly sticky dough. Add the dough to a floured surface to help with rolling
  • Sprinkle some flour and extra cinnamon on the dough to help reduce stickiness, ready for rolling
  • Roll or press down the dough into a rectangle (it doesn’t have to be perfect!)
  • Soften your butter in the microwave to make it easily spreadable, then cover the entire dough
  • Mix the cinnamon and brown sweetener together in a small bowl, then sprinkle it over the butter. Leave a small amount of room around the edges to avoid the filling melting out of the cinnamon rolls as they bake
  • Roll the cinnamon roll dough towards you, trying to keep it as tightly rolled as possible. I used the parchment paper to pull it towards me to allow the dough to roll itself
  • Using a sharp serrated knife, score your dough to measure out 10 cinnamon rolls, then slice into 10
  • Place your cinnamon rolls spaced out in a round pre-greased cake pan
  • Bake at 170 c for 20 minutes
  • Mix the powdered Erythritol & Greek yogurt & a splash of milk to form the icing
  • After baking, allow the warm cinnamon rolls to cool for about 10 minutes before adding your icing
  • Spread the icing over the top of the cinnamon rolls, top with Chocolate & Cranberry Snack Shots and dig in

Recipe makes 7 rolls and is roughly 415 calories in total, so only 59 calories each!
