How to make homemade cinnamon rolls:

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and grease a 9 inch pie dish or casserole dish.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together your tapioca flour, almond flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl combine your melted butter, sweetener, eggs, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla extract.
  4. Add your wet ingredients to your dry mixture and mix until combined, your dough will be sticky.
  5. Add 2 tbs warm water to your dough and mix well. Let your dough rest for 5 minutes to firm up. While your dough rests mix together all of your filling ingredients and set aside.
  6. On a piece of parchment paper, spread about 1 tbs of tapioca flour so it covers about 8X12 inches. Take your dough and place it on your working surface, cover with parchment paper and roll your dough with a rolling pin into a 8X12 even rectangle.
  7. Spread your filling mixture evenly over your dough, leaving at least a 1/2 inch around the edges.
  8. Using the short side (the 8 inch side) carefully roll your dough rectangle into a log. Cut into nine equal pieces. Place your rolls in your greased dish and bake for 25-30 minutes.
  9. Combine your topping ingredients and whisk until smooth. Once your cinnamon rolls slightly cool, spread your topping on top and enjoy!

Frequently asked questions:

How to store cinnamon rolls?

They stay good at room-temperature for up to 2 days, in the fridge for up to a week, and in the freezer for up to 2 months if stored properly in an air tight container.

Can I freeze cinnamon rolls?

You bet! freeze them in an airtight container.

Do cinnamon rolls need to be refrigerated?

You can pop them in the fridge to make them last longer, I like to quickly heat them up before eating.

What is the easiest way to cut cinnamon rolls?

There is nothing worse than rolling your dough and then having it flatten when you cut it! You can either use a very sharp serrated knife or my personal favorite, dental floss! Make sure to use the 'unflavored' stuff so you don't end up with minty cinnamon rolls - unless that is your thing.
