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 1⁄2 cups Bisquick Gluten Free baking mix
- 1⁄3 cup Vanilla Almond milk
- 1 egg
- 2 tablespoons non-dairy butter, softened
- 1⁄4 cup coconut sugar
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- ¼ cup chopped nuts (optional) I used a mixture I had leftover from another recipe
- 1⁄4 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 1 teaspoon water
NOTE: For the confectioners’ sugar I made my own using a Cuisinart Mini-Prep Plus Food Processor
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.)
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.
Bake about 20 minutes or until light brown.
Optional: Mix powdered sugar and water until spreading consistency; spread over warm roll.
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!
