Paleo Cinnamon Rolls

Cinnamon rolls are one of those foods I do not ever think of until I see them… covered in sugar, glaze, cinnamon, & making everything in the area smell amazing. At that point, I must have. Then guilt follows for not being able to stop at just one :)

These are a great replacement for the 2347392 calorie ones. Check out the original post here at Paleocupboard.com

Ingredients:

Dough

  • 1-3/4 C. Almond Flour
  • 1/4 C. Coconut Flour
  • 1/2 t. Sea Salt
  • 1/4 C. Coconut Oil, melted
  • 2 T. Honey
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 T. Vanlla

Filling

  • 1/4 C. Honey
  • 2 T. Coconut Oil, melted
  • 2 T. Cinnamon
  • any other filling you would want, (paleo or non–dried fruit, chocolate chips, etc.)

Glaze

  • 1/4 C. Honey
  • 1/4 C. Coconut Oil
  • 2 T. Vanilla

Directions

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 (Truthfully, I failed majorly at this step and just plopped it back in the bowl, which is probably why my dough does not look like the original post, or I could just suck :p)

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 spray to avoid it sticking) to make a large rectangle

7) Cover with filling and roll. This part is messy and hard. I slid a knife under dough so it would roll easier. I just went slowly, and my filling oozed out–next time I would use less to avoid this.

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.

  1. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I
    find this matter to be really something which I think I would never understand.

    It seems too complicated and extremely broad for me.

    I’m looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the hang of it!

Thank you
