Cinnamon Rolls

I have been craving cinnamon rolls for a while now. Plus, they have been on my “to make” list. I finally decided to make them the other night. I hope that everyone enjoys them as much as I did!

cinnamon rolls, gluten free, paleo, little sprouts kitchen, breakfast, foodRolls:
2 cups almond flour
¼ cup coconut flour, plus a little extra for dusting
1 tbsp cinnamon
Dash of sea salt
¼ tsp baking powder
2 eggs
¼ cup honey
1 tsp vanilla extract
½ cup coconut oil
¼ cup palm shortening

Filing:
½ cup honey
1 tbsp cinnamon
1 cup chopped pecans
3 tbsp coconut oil
½ cup shredded coconut (optional)

Icing:
½ cup honey
½ cup coconut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix the Rolls dry ingredients in a large bowl. Mix the Rolls wet ingredients in a small bowl.
3. Make a hole in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour the wet in the middle. Slowly pull the dry into the wet and mix until a dough forms.
4. Once well combined and dough ball has formed, place a piece of plastic wrap over the top. Refrigerate for 20 minutes.
5. While the dough stiffens, mix the filling ingredients in a small bowl.
6. Place a piece of parchment paper on a flat surface. Take half the dough and roll into a ball. Place on the parchment and use hands to press down. Dust the top lightly with a little coconut flour. Place another piece of parchment paper on top. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough into a square.
7. Use a spoon to distribute the filling in the middle of the dough.cinnamon rolls, paleo, gluten free, little sprouts kitchen
8. Beginning from one end, begin to slowly roll the dough into a log form. Go slow and be patient. If the dough starts to break a little, simple reform together.
9. Use a knife to cut ½ inch pieces. Place either on a baking sheet or in a baking tin (like a pin tin or cake tin).
10. Continue until done with all the rolls.
11. Bake in the oven for 15-18 minutes, until toasted, but not burnt.
12. While they are baking, make the icing.
13. Use a spoon to drizzle desired amount of icing on each cinnamon roll.
14. Serve and enjoy!
