I've been craving cinnamon rolls for weeks and today had to be the day that I got in the lab (kitchen) to figure out how to make them using minimal ingredients to mimic the delicious but not so healthy cinnamon rolls from my childhood.
The twist, these cinnamon rolls are clean, that means gluten free, dairy free, nutritious, paleo friendly and 100% guilt FREE!
Easy Healthy Homemade Cinnamon Rolls
2 Tbsp. Coconut Oil
2 Tbsp. Honey
1/2 Tsp. Sea Salt
1 Tsp. Baking Powder
1 1/2 C. Almond Flour
2 Tbsp. Roasted Cinnamon
2-3 Tbsp. Honey
3 Tbsp. Coconut Cream
2 Tbsp. Honey
1/2 Tsp. Roasted Cinnamon
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees.
Next, Add oil, honey, and an egg into a mixing bowl. Blend the ingredients together until consistent. Next, add salt and baking powder, blend until mixture is even. Then, slowly add almond flour and blend until the texture becomes a doughy texture. Place a piece of parchment paper on the counter, sprinkle additional almond flour on the parchment paper surface evenly (this keeps the dough from sticking to the parchment paper).
Scoop the dough on to the parchment paper. Oil your hands with coconut oil before touching the dough. Mold the dough into a flat rectangular shape. Sprinkle cinnamon evenly on top of the dough, then drizzle honey on top of the cinnamon evenly.
Next, use the edge of the parchment paper to lift/ fold one side of the dough, continue rolling until the dough is rolled into a cinnamon roll log.
Oil and flour a baking sheet. Next, cut the cinnamon roll log into (7-8) cinnamon buns. Bake for 10 minutes or until golden brown. Allow cooling for 5-10 minutes before frosting with glaze.
Mix coconut cream, honey, and cinnamon together then spoon the glaze on top of each cinnamon roll. Allow the glaze to melt slightly, then enjoy!
