This is a speedier alternative to classic cinnamon scrolls made with a yeast dough, which takes more time and ingredients.

These simple cinnamon scrolls can be made into different flavours. Try adding fruit, nuts, seeds or coconut on top of the cinnamon.

Try adding 2 diced apples and 1/2 cup cooked and mashed sweet potatoes to the filling.

You can even turn these into savoury scrolls!
