Paleo Cinnamon Rolls

Technically, I should not be thinking about eating cinnamon rolls. (I am slightly allergic to cinnamon, but hey I like to live on the edge!) However, I saw some while grocery shopping today, so what did I do? I came home and made some less cinnamony rolls. So good.

Paleo Cinnamon Rolls

Ingredients (Dough Mixture 1):

3 c  Almond flour

4 tps Flax meal

5 Splenda Packet

1 3/4 tsp Baking soda

1 tsp Baking Powder

1/4 Tsp. Salt

Ingredients (Dough Mixture 2):

1/4 c Flax Meal

1/4 c Warm non-dairy milk

3 Large Eggs

Ingredients (Filling):

5 tsp Brown sugar

2 tsp Honey

1 tsp Cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350. Mix Dough Mixture 1 and Dough Mixture 2 in separate bowls. Once thoroughly mixed, add 2 to mixture 1. Mix until a sticky dough appears. Pick up dough and place on large piece of parchment paper. Fold the parchment paper over the dough and roll out until flat.

Cut dough lengthwise in 3 inch wide strips. In a microwave combine filling ingredients, mix and spread onto the dough. Wet hands with water (this helps the dough not stick, it VERY sticky!) and roll the dough into bun. Place on cookie tray lined with parchment paper. Allow rolls to sit. The rolls should grow slightly. Stick them in the oven for 12-15 minutes.

Allow to cool top with more cinnamon, honey, or powdered sugar OR Enjoy by themselves.
