I got this great recipe from courtneyscraftinandcookin. My church was having a ministry fair this morning and I was asked to bring a food item for the youth table. I love the idea of making a sweet treat healthier. Now, I did adapt this recipe a good bit solely because I didn’t have the same ingredients she had. It still turned out fantastic though! I will leave her original ingredients on the list and tell you what I used. If I had had time I would have definitely gone and gotten the type of flour she used.
- 1-3/4 C. Almond Flour (or rice four)
- 1/4 C. Coconut Flour (or arrowroot)
- 1/2 t. Sea Salt
- 1/4 C. Coconut Oil, melted
- 2 T. Honey
- 2 Eggs
- 1 T. Vanlla
- 1/4 C. Honey (or coconut sugar)
- 2 T. Coconut Oil, melted
- 2 T. Cinnamon
- any other filling you would want, (paleo or non–dried fruit, chocolate chips, etc.)
Glaze: OPTIONAL I didn’t add it on mine.
- 1/4 C. Honey
- 1/4 C. Coconut Oil
- 2 T. Vanilla
1) Whisk wet ingredients into a large bowl (vanilla, eggs, oil, honey)
2) Mix dry ingredients in a medium bowl (flours, salt)
3) Add the dry ingredients into the wet. Dough is very sticky, so make sure your hands are oiled before handling. Knead until smooth. NOTE: I ended up placing mine into my kitchen aid with the dough hook. Saved my hands from the sticky mess.
4) Place in fridge to chill for about 10 minutes.
5) Mix together the filling in a bowl.
6) Roll out dough in between two pieces of wax paper (cover with olive oil/coconut oil spray to avoid it sticking) to make a large rectangle
7) Cover with filling and roll. I slid a knife under dough so it would roll easier. I just went slowly. NOTE: Make sure you layer your filling thin! otherwise it will all squeeze out anyways.
8) Once rolled, cut into 2 inch sections, and place on a greased baking sheet. They are not very pretty, but even a blob of a cinnamon roll is still good.
9) Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until golden brown.
10) Pour glaze over rolls.
Hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as I did!!
