GLUTEN FREE HEALTHIFIED CINNAMON ROLLS 🎁 It’s my Christmas gift to you all and it’s a good one. Not only are these SO FREAKING DELISH but they are the easiest cinnamon roll recipe ever because they are yeast free! I used Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Baking Flour to get the same delicious taste as regular cinnamon rolls – it’s a pantry staple for me especially during the holidays!
GF Healthified Cinnamon Rolls
GF Cinnamon Rolls
- 2 cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Baking Flour
- 3 tbsp coconut sugar plus extra for filling
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon plus extra for filling
- 5 tbsp cold grass fed butter plus extra for filling
- 3/4 cup almond milk
- 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp melted butter or coconut oil spray
- 1/4 cup pecans
- 4 oz cream cheese
- 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- or use coconut butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine Gluten Free Baking Flour, coconut sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon. Add in cold butter (chopped into small pieces) and combine into the flour mixture. Then add almond milk, apple cider vinegar and vanilla. Combine well until dough forms.
Place the ball of dough on a well floured surface and roll out with a rolling pin to form a large rectangle (about 12 x 14 inches). Spread a mixture of melted butter, coconut sugar, cinnamon and crushed pecans over the rectangle then carefully start rolling the dough longways. Press the end of the dough into the roll once you are done to ensure it doesn’t roll back open.
Place in the freezer for 10 minutes then cut the roll into 1 1/2 inch pieces. Place in an oven safe dish generously coated with coconut oil or butter or lined with parchment paper. Top with more melted butter (optional but do it).
Bake at 350 for about 20 min. While that bakes, make icing by combining all ingredients in a food processor or mixer. Spread icing on the cinnamon rolls and enjoy warm!
Recipe is vegan if you use coconut butter as icing.
