If you're cutting back on oil and sugar, you can still have these cinnamon rolls for breakfast! Applesauce takes the place of oil and they're sweetened with stevia instead of sugar. They're topped with a cinnamon "sugar" spread and a simple frosting that's entirely optional. Keep these handy whenever you need a quick and easy breakfast on the go.
