Thanks to siggi’s dairy for sponsoring this post!
Boy do I have a treat for you guys today! As you know, I’m partnering with my friends at siggi’s dairy this year to showcase some delicious healthy ways to use their Icelandic-style yogurt. Remember this Berry Farro Breakfast Bowl I shared a few weeks ago?! It’s perfect for a quick weekday breakfast.
Today’s recipe is perfect for a leisurely weekend breakfast or brunch….or really any morning when you get a craving for cinnamon rolls. Except they’re scones. And they ready in less than 20 minutes – no yeast or kneading required! The scones themselves are bursting with cinnamony goodness and then they’re topped with a simple yogurt drizzle.
Cinnamon Roll Scones
And I do mean simple. It’s just siggi’s plain full-fat yogurt with a little powdered sugar. And the scones are made with just 7 simple, real food ingredients as well. I love using siggi’s vanilla yogurt in the scones for a little flavor without a ton of added sugar
If you ask me, these are a pretty good substitute for the tubes of pre-made cinnamon rolls you find in the grocery store that are loaded with sugar and saturated fat and have lord knows how many ingredients. The yogurt gives these scones a protein boost, which is always a bonus, and replaces things like hydrogenated oils and artificial flavors that may be found in pre-packaged cinnamon rolls.
The other good thing about this recipe? It’s a small batch. I love scones, but I don’t particularly like eating leftover scones for the next 4 days. This recipe makes just 4 regular or 6 mini scones which is perfect!
Here’s how you make them:
Cinnamon Roll Scones
These Small Batch Cinnamon Roll Scones are perfect for a weekend breakfast or brunch. They're bursting with cinnamon flavor and topped with a delicious yogurt drizzle.
- 3/4 cup white whole wheat flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 3 Tbsp butter, cubed
- 1/4 cup siggi's 4% vanilla yogurt
- 3 Tbsp milk
- 1/2 cup siggi's plain 4% yogurt
- 1- 2 Tbsp powdered sugar, depending on desired sweetness
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and cinnamon.
Add butter and cut in using a pastry blender or two knives until mixture resembles a course meal.
Add yogurt and mix until just combined.
Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
Use the sides of the parchment paper to shape dough into a circle about an inch thick.
Cut into 4-6 wedges and gently separate so there is space between the wedges.
Bake at 400 degrees F for 12-14 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool.
Mix plain yogurt and powdered sugar until desired sweetness is reached. Scoop into a ziploc bag, cut off the corner and pipe over scones.
Wait to top with frosting until just prior to serving.
If desired you could spread on the frosting with a knife instead of piping.
Aren’t they cute? I’m a sucker for mini-sized baked goods!
