You guys, I seriously have the best job in the world.  I was recently contacted by Cinnabon® to try out their new Baking Kit and a couple of their recipes.  I was so excited that I couldn’t wait to see the UPS man come driving down my street. They were so sweet to send me a box full of fun goodies!

The baking kit was definitely the star of the show!

All you need to make 8 delicious cinnamon rolls are:

  • Cinnabon Baking Kit
  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
  • 1 cup buttermilk (or regular milk)
  • 1 large egg
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • Flour for dusting

That is it!!  It is seriously so easy!  They come out fluffy and DELICIOUS!  My parents happened to stop by right after these came out of the oven. They LOVED them! I even sent them home with a couple to eat for breakfast the next morning.  By the way, these warm up FABULOUSLY the next day.  I just stuck mine in the microwave for about 20 seconds and it was perfection!  These would make the perfect breakfast (or dessert, or snack…) over the holidays.  Whether you just eat them as fluffy cinnamon rolls or turn them into french toast.

Anyway, Cinnabon has some crazy good recipes that you can make using this Cinnabon Kit.  This morning we tried the Cinnabon French Toast.  It didn’t hardly take any time at all and it was delicious!

You could make this even easier if you have a Cinnabon store near you. Just pick up some fresh Cinnabons to use in your french toast.  Yum!!

You are going to love this Skinny French Toast that I have for you today. Not too long ago, I was introduced to French Toast by my son Logan when we were on a trip. We were in Gatlinburg, TN and he ordered his favorite french toast from the Pancake Pantry. By the way, if you haven’t eaten there before you HAVE to put that on your bucket list. I am not a big breakfast eater, but their food is awesome!  Here is their menu so you can see all they have to offer.

Their french toast is obviously NOT skinny by any means but oh so delicious. When we got home, I was determined to find a way to make a lighter version so that I could still indulge every now and again. This is what I do to make this guilty pleasure a little skinnier, yet still super yummy!
