Need a new snack idea for the kids after school? How about just for you because you are awesome and deserve a delicious snack?
Have I got just the thing for you.
This recipe makes 2 roll-ups. Each roll-up has 210 calories, 30 carbs, 9 fat, and 6 protein, according to Myfitnesspal. These are so amazing! Totally worth the indulgence.
These are like little bites of cinnamon cheesecake with a crunchy crust. Who wouldn't love that? Okay...we all know Sue probably wouldn't...but that's only because she's crazy.
For those of us who aren't crazy...go..make this right now!! I'm pretty sure you will fall in love with this easy yet impressive treat!
Cinnamon Sugar Cheesecake Roll-Ups
2 slices whole grain bread
2 Tbsp light cream cheese, softened
1 Tbsp icing sugar
1 Tbsp butter, melted
2 tsp sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Preheat toaster oven to 350. (Can also be made in a regular oven) Line small, flat oven safe dish with parchment paper, set aside.
Cut off bread crusts. Using a rolling pin or heavy glass, roll bread out so it is thin.
In a small bowl, combine cream cheese and icing sugar until well mixed. Spread evenly on 2 slices of bread.
Roll up, jelly roll style, gently pressing to seal seam.
Using a pastry or basting brush, brush all over with melted butter.
In a small dish, combine sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over the bread that has been brushed with the melted butter. Place on prepared baking tray, seam side down.
Bake for approx 7 minutes, gently flip over, and bake 7 minutes more.
Remove from oven and let sit for 2 - 3 minutes. Eat as is or slice in half and serve. (Be careful, filling will be hot!)
Who knew boring old bread could be transformed into something so decadent? I imagine making a sundae out of this by topping with a scoop of frozen yogurt and some caramel sauce. Pretty sure that would ruin me entirely for ever eating toast "the old way" ever again.
Oh well...it's a risk I'm willing to take.
