I love cinnamon buns. I couldn't go to the mall without stopping by Cinnabon. I had to make the Pilsbury version at least weekly in college. There is something magical about the sugar and cinnmon gooeyness. Of course, after I went vegan cinnamon buns were off limits unless I made them myself. The task seemed daunting so I kept putting it off until one day my desires could no longer be controlled.
I found a few recipes online, but they didn't meet the requirements of my then-newly adopted lifestlye. So I set out to make a fat-free and whole-wheat cinnamon bun. Call it the impossible task, but I assure you, its quite possible -- and still delicious.
This is my tried and true recipe. I've made it for well over a dozen people (including my sister, my best friend, my parents and my in-laws, all of who are not veg or eat the way I do) and time and time again these buns are a smashing hit. I love these buns and so will you (especially when I tell you they have only 260 calories per bun with icing!) Enjoy!
