Cinnamon Crumble Filling

  • 1/4 cup coconut palm sugar
  • 1/4 cup raw pecans *finely chopped

For the cinnamon rolls

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet (I used stoneware) with parchment paper. Set aside.

  2. Whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, sea salt, melted coconut oil, eggs, pure maple syrup, and vanilla extract in a large bowl until fully combined and a thick dough forms.

  3. Transfer dough onto a piece of parchment paper. Use the parchment paper to form the dough into a log. Place in freezer to harden for 15 minutes.

  4. Once the dough is firm, cover it with another piece of parchment paper and roll it out into a long rectangle. Remove the top sheet of parchment paper. 

For the cinnamon crumble filling

  1. Place cinnamon, coconut palm sugar, and chopped pecans in a small bowl. In a sauce pan, melt coconut oil. Drizzle melted coconut oil on the dough and spread it around before adding the cinnamon mixture.  

  2. Cut your cinnamon rolls into about 6 medium strips. Roll. then place on your prepared baking sheet. Bake for 25-30 minutes until golden.

For the cashew glaze

  1. Combine raw cashews, vanilla extract, maple syrup, water, melted coconut oil, and sea salt into a high speed blender or food processor. Blend until creamy. 

  2. Top the cinnamon rolls after they come out of the oven and ENJOY immediately or store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to a week.
