|Mixing and kneading the ingredients|
The recipe doesn't call for a cinnamon,sugar and butter filling, just cinnamon. The reason for that is to keep the cinnamon roll moist for longer. According to the recipe page sugar is hygroscopic; it attracts water and will pull the moister out of the roll. Plus, without the added sugar and butter it has less calories and fat. BONUS!

Perfect timing! Just as I pulled the finished cinnamon buns out of the oven there was a knock at my door...it was my wonderful neighbors Nick and Lorie. They surprised my husband and I with just out of the oven, homemade, broccoli and cheddar cheese quiche that was scrumptious! It made my heart and my belly smile.
The cinnamon buns were delicious too.
