Holy wow! A cinnamon swirl bread that tastes this good AND is healthy? Join me in the BB.com kitchen for a cooking lesson!

The only thing better than the aroma of coffee wafting through the house first thing in the morning is the smell of freshly baked cinnamon rolls. As a kid, nothing could get me down the stairs for breakfast faster! Though it’s been ages since I’ve actually had the kind of cinnamon rolls my mom would bake, I can still remember the warm buttery goodness with hints of vanilla, cinnamon, and sugar icing.

Of course, these days, indulgences like that are few and far between for me. Though it may not lessen the allure of a Cinnabon at the mall, my own cinnamon swirl protein bread satisfies that urge. Not only does it fill the house with the aroma of cinnamon and vanilla, but it also provides additional protein and has far fewer calories. Eat this scrumptious bread first thing in the morning or pack it to accompany meals throughout the day!
