Sinless Cinnamon Rolls

When it comes to desserts, you don't need eggs and butter to whip up a tasty treat. These cinnamon-spiced rolls get loads of flavour from a mix of brown sugar, dried fruit and nuts - feel free to switch them up and use your favourites.


  • 1 650 g pkg frozen pizza dough, thawed

  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil

  • 1/2 cup lightly packed brown sugar

  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon

  • 1 100 g pkg pecan pieces, about 1 cup (optional)

  • 1/2 cup golden raisins, dried cranberries or dried cherries


  • Preheat oven to 400°F (200°C). Generously coat a 9 x 13 in (3 L) baking dish with oil.

  • Lightly dust counter and rolling pin with flour. Roll dough into a 12 x 16 in (30 x 40 cm) rectangle. If the dough shrinks and resists rolling, let it rest for a while.

  • Stir oil with brown sugar and cinnamon. Spread over dough.

  • Sprinkle dried fruits and nuts overtop. Roll up dough. Slice into 12 rolls. Arrange, cut side down, in the prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in centre of preheated oven until golden, 25-35 minutes. Cool 5 minutes, then run a knife around edges to loosen. Serve warm. To reheat, pop individual rolls in the microwave for 20 seconds.
