What is it about cinnamon rolls that just bring a huge smile to our faces?!
One family tradition we had was our older sister would make homemade cinnamon rolls each Christmas morning. She would spend hours in the kitchen making the most amazing cinnamon rolls. We can picture them now. Soft, moist and oh so sweet! Yum!
When creating our recipe for cinnamon rolls we started with our cookie dough cinnamon rolls. Yes cookie dough! We love love love that recipe.
We wanted to create another amazing cinnamon roll recipe. But one without using plantains since we know not all of you can find plantains. And we wanted a recipe for you to enjoy too! You can take this cinnamon roll base and use it in our cookie dough cinnamon rolls!! Happy dance 🙂
Get ready PT friends for the best cinnamon rolls! Well, the best in our eyes.
Almond butter and jelly cinnamon rolls with creamy almond butter coconut glaze that’s grain-free, paleo, low-sugar and vegan.
These cinnamon rolls are soft, moist, easy to work with and taste like a peanut butter & jelly but with almond butter. You could use peanut butter if you like!
Really any nut or seed butter would work just fine.
Get ready to smell delicious flavors of warm almond butter mixed with homemade, no-sugar-added jelly topped with creamy melt-in-your-mouth glaze.
No confectioner sugar needed in this glaze!!!
These cinnamon buns are made with sunflower seed flour and arrowroot starch as our main ‘flour’ sources. The arrowroot helps hold it together while keeping it light. The sunflower seed flour (made from grinding whole sunflower seeds into meal) helps keep these rolls soft and moist.
And a touch of coconut flour gives it a nice soft crumb.
Paleo-friendly, egg-free, dairy-free almond butter and jelly cinnamon rolls.
Inspired by our cookie dough grain-free cinnamon rolls.
Instead of sunflower seeds use any nut or pumpkin seed meal.
Instead of arrowroot use a combo of tapioca and potato starch (we suggest a combo since, if using too much tapioca, it can cause too much chew and the potato starch will provide lightness).
Instead of almond butter as filling you can use peanut butter, sunflower butter, cashew butter…
Instead of applesauce use sweet potato or banana puree.
For the jelly filling, to keep it vegan, use vegan jelly of choice or use arrowroot instead of the gelatin.
Who wants some almond butter and jelly cinnamon rolls??
Tea or coffee with them? Or a glass of milk 😉
