Cinnamon Rolls have been around for hundreds of years and are a favorite dessert food for many people. Millions of cinnamon rolls are consumed each year. They can be found at county fairs, grocery stores, bakeries, restaurants and made from scratch right at home. Obviously cinnamon rolls are not a health food, but just how many calories in a cinnamon roll are there?
The answer varies depending on the recipe and size of the cinnamon roll. A typical cinnamon roll is about 4 ounces and contains 450 calories along with 9 grams of fat. The numbers vary greatly. Cinnamon rolls can have anywhere between 220-900 calories each in them. The reason is the size, amount of butter, oil and frosting used.
One of the most popular cinnamon rolls is the Cinnabon. This can be found at malls all across the country. They even sell them in stores now. Just one traditional Cinnabon has 900 calories and 37 grams of fat! No wonder they taste so good. Along with the 900 calories and 37 grams of fat, the Cinnabon delivers 335 mg of sodium, 50 grams of carbs, 25 grams of sugars, and 20 mg of cholesterol.
If you have to enjoy a cinnamon roll now and again its best to avoid the Cinnabon and go for one of the lesser calorie varieties offered at the grocery store or bakery.
