Cinnamon Role Recipe

Trying a new RECIPE

GLUTEN FREE CINNAMON ROLES

I stated out with a recipe I found on Pinterest from food.com (HERE)

Then I adapted it to my own family’s needs. I’m the kind of person who takes a recipe and adapts it to the ingredients I have on hand or am familiar with. I usually don’t follow directions very well. In fact, I can read a recipe and then just create something based on the ingredient list. So, this is my version of gluten-free cinnamon roles.

They sound super good and I hope they turn out. We’ll see!

Ingredients (that I used):

  • 2 12 cups Bisquick Gluten Free baking mix
  • 13 cup Vanilla Almond milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons non-dairy butter, softened
  • 14 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • ¼ cup chopped nuts (optional) I used a mixture I had leftover from another recipe
  • 14 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1 teaspoon water

NOTE: For the confectioners’ sugar I made my own using a Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus Food Processor

out of coconut sugar and tapioca starch then added dairy free butter.20150520_150459 20150520_150707  20150520_151022

Directions

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Mix gluten free baking mix, vanilla almond milk and egg until a soft dough forms. I used my KitchenAid for this step.  (I needed more milk than it called for. I just added as needed until dough formed.) 20150520_143212

Turn dough onto lightly gluten-free floured surface and knead gently until smooth.

Pat or roll dough into an 8 x 10 rectangle. Combine cinnamon and coconut sugar. This is when I sprinkled on the nuts. Spread dough with dairy-free butter and sprinkle with cinnamon and coconut sugar mixture.

Roll up tightly, Pinch edge of dough into roll to seal. Cut at 1 inch intervals ALMOST through to bottom, using scissors or sharp knife. I cut through and separated the rolls. 20150520_144505

Bake about 20 minutes or until light brown.

Optional: Mix powdered sugar and water until spreading consistency; spread over warm roll.

Finished Product

They are delicious. They don’t compare to the gooey, sweet, commercial cinnamon role but for us allergy sufferers and sugar watchers, they are great!
