Gentle and heat on the within, chewy on the surface, these candy Paleo cinnamon rolls make a scrumptious breakfast. Nice for an occasional indulgence, they take a little bit of time to organize, however are properly definitely worth the effort. Hints of cinnamon, walnuts, and honey are rolled up into this baked deal with, topped off with a coconut glaze.
Final weekend I couldn’t get cinnamon rolls out of my head, so I went on an intensive on-line seek for recipe inspiration. I used to be a bit upset by the outcomes. Whereas I perceive that cinnamon rolls are removed from a pure Paleo recipe, a lot of the ones I got here throughout had an extended record of unusual components that didn’t appear excellent for you. I knew there needed to be a less complicated manner. Fortunately I got here throughout a cinnamon roll dough recipe from Substances of a Match Chick. I added my very own private touches, utilizing the common components in my pantry, and the cinnamon rolls got here out wonderful.
These Paleo cinnamon rolls are totally different than their gluten counterparts within the degree of sweetness and of their dimension. I like the truth that these cinnamon rolls should not as overwhelmingly candy as the type you get at a bakery. You don’t get hit with a wall of sugar; as an alternative you style hints of cinnamon and honey as you chunk into it. Should you do want a really candy cinnamon roll, merely add a better quantity of honey and dates. The optionally available glaze additionally helps to prime off the sweetness.
When the entire dough components are blended collectively it must be fairly thick. I discovered that wax paper was straightforward to make use of, with a purpose to roll out the dough. With cinnamon rolls you really want the form to resemble a rectangle, so take your time to get a fair layer. Then the fillings will be sprinkled over the floor. The walnuts and dates must be very finely chopped in order that they keep the form with the dough as an alternative of creating massive chunks.
To roll up the dough, use the wax paper to rotate the sting of dough away from you. Attempt to make a decent roll from the start. If you need mini cinnamon rolls like within the photographs, roll up the lengthy edge. If you need fewer, bigger rolls, flip the wax paper so the shorter edge is close to you and roll up from there.
As a result of almond flour is filling and excessive in carbs, I formed these cinnamon rolls to be smaller in dimension than the large form. There are in all probability 2-3 bites per small roll, good for moderation.
As soon as the log is rolled, I like to recommend chilling it for quarter-hour or so to assist it maintain the form. Then you may minimize the log into 9 or 10 thick items, shaping them a bit once more if wanted. Place these on a baking sheet and put it within the oven. Regulate the rolls in the direction of the top of the cooking time since everybody’s oven is totally different. You’ll be rewarded with cinnamon smells wafting from the kitchen and a heat, candy deal with for breakfast.
