I've had a craving for some clean cinnamon rolls for a while now sooooo Ren and I finally sat in the kitchen and whipped up these delicious treats. I just used the ingredients we had in our kitchen and I am no pro at making clean icing yet, so that will just have to wait, but these were delicious none the less. We hope you enjoy them too! 

Ingredients

For the cinnamon rolls
3 cups fine ground blanched almond flour, I would definitely use almond flour over almond meal.
1/2 tsp sea salt salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 tbs honey
2 eggs at room temperature

For the filling
cinnamon
honey

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Add all dry ingredients (almond flour, sea salt and baking soda) to a bowl and mix well. 
  3. Add all wet ingredients (coconut oil, honey and eggs) to another bowl (I chose my Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer to mix these ingredients.) 
  4. Then add wet and dry ingredients and mix well until they are completely incorporated and create a dough like consistency. 
  5. Then roll out the dough on parchment paper to the width you would like. If the dough is too sticky, you can (and I always need too) sprinkle on additional almond flour to make it more manageable.
  6. Cut right away using about three fingers width for each "strip"
  7. With each strip begin to drizzle "the filling" honey and cinnamon over them. 
  8. Then roll them up and shape them a bit if needed.
  9. Spray coconut oil on cookie sheet and begin to place cinnamon rolls accordingly.
  10. Place in oven and cook for 10-12 minutes, but be sure to check in on them often to make sure they are baking well and do not over bake.
