Cinnamon rolls (also known as cinnamon buns) are perfect for breakfast and afternoon snacks. The store-bought cinnamon rolls are usually more sweet. In my recipe, I've tried to make the cinnamon rolls more healthy by reducing the amount of sugar. The nice aroma of freshly baked cinnamon rolls are truly inviting.

    I love cinnamon buns! These look great! A trick to cutting them is to use dental floss.
