Nothing says good morning like warm cinnamon rolls straight out of the oven!
This recipe is a simplified take on this classic favorite made with Greek yogurt, almond butter and 100% whole grain Quaker Oats. Chances are, you already have these ingredients in your pantry and fridge!
The star of this recipe is OATS. While store-bought cinnamon rolls are typically made with refined white flour, a half cup of uncooked oats is a good source of important vitamins and minerals.
Oats are a highly versatile pantry staple, offering countless possibilities to get more taste and nutrition out of what we eat each day. Because they are a nutritious blank canvas, they can inspire culinary creativity and can easily be made savory or sweet, hot or cold. Each ½ cup serving of uncooked oats is a good source of fiber and provides important vitamins and minerals like vitamin B1, magnesium, phosphorous and manganese. Dietary fiber is a shortfall nutrient which means that people aren’t getting the recommended amount. Fiber can help support a healthy digestive system. The oats used in each variety of Quaker Oats – Instant, Quick, Old Fashioned and Steel Cut – are 100% whole grain, and ounce per ounce, provide similar amounts of fiber, vitamins and minerals.
I am proud to be partnering with Quaker who has spent more than 143 years finding modern ways to help people benefit from the taste, versatility and nutrition of whole grain oats.
Additionally, Quaker believes in providing nourishment for all. With the pandemic amplifying the existing food insecurity issue across the country with an estimated 50 million people food insecure this year (or one in six people, and one in four children),
This month, Quaker is partnering with Feeding America to help provide nourishment for people in need.
