  1. Let’s start this off right - you need at least a 6 quart slow cooker, oval style, to make this work or one that’s 13x9 inches, casserole style.
  2. Line the slow cooker with parchment paper. I like to make it go up the sides just a little.
  3. In a large bowl add 2 1/2 cups flour, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1 tsp salt. Mix together.
  4. Add 5 tbsp butter, use two butter knives and cut cut cut that butter until it becomes pea size. 
  5. Add in 1/2 cup buttermilk and 1 can pumpkin and mix together to make the dough.
  6. Set aside as you make the filling.
  7. In a small bowl add 1/4 cup of sugar, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 tbsp vanilla protein powder, 1 tbsp of pumpkin pie spice and mix together.
  8. On the counter sprinkle flour. Take your dough and sprinkle flour over it to help prevent it from sticking all over you.
  9. With your hands, make the dough into a 15x10 inch rectangle (or as close as you can get it). 
  10. Pour melted butter over dough and spread evenly.
  11. Sprinkle your filling on top of the butter. Be careful to not go all the way to the sides otherwise it will fall out when you roll.
  12. Take one side of the dough and begin to tightly roll the dough into a log shape.
  13. Once rolled, tuck in the two sides.
  14. Cut the cinnamon roll into 10 pieces and place inside slow cooker.
  15. Cook on high for two hours.
  16. Let cool on counter by pulling the rolls out with the parchment paper.
  17. While rolls cool make the frosting.
  18. Put all frosting ingredients in a small bowl and mix together with a hand mixer till smooth.
  19. Drizzle over rolls!

**BONUS How to make your own buttermilk: one cup of milk and 1 tbsp fresh squeezed lemon, which is about a half a lemon. Stir and let sit for 5 to 10 minutes before using!


much love-
