Paleo Cinnamon Rolls
Cinnamon rolls were a Christmas tradition in our house. We haven't done that in a few years now, but I wanted to restart the tradition with a healthier paleo twist. I used the biscuit recipe from Elanaspantry.com as the base for these rolls. I hope you like them as much as we did!
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup or honey
- 1/4 cup ghee or coconut oil
- 2 1/2 cups almond flour
- 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 tablespoons ghee or coconut oil melted
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- 3 tablespoons maple or coconut sugar
- 1/4 cup coconut milk
- 1/4 cup maple or coconut sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 1/2 teaspoon arrowroot

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
*In large bowl mix eggs, maple and ghee. Add almond flour, salt and baking soda. Mix until well combined.
Dump dough onto a piece of parchment paper. Place another piece of parchment on top and roll dough into a rectangle shape about 1/4-1/2 inch thick.
*In small bowl combine filling ingredients. Spread filling over the biscuit dough mixture.
Roll to dough starting at one end (the longer side of the rectangle). Using a sharp knife cut individual rolls from the rolled up dough making each about 1-1 1/2 inch thick.
Place on parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake for 15-20 minutes until lightly golden brown.
*While baking mix the icing ingredients in a small bowl.
Remove the rolls from the oven and drizzle with glaze.
Serve warm and enjoy!
