Paleo Cinnamon Buns

Ingredients:
Dough:

  • 2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)

  • 1 tbsp honey

  • 1 egg

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour

  • 1 tbsp coconut flour

  • 1 tsp baking soda

 

 

Filling:

  • 2 tbsp cinnamon

  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans (optional)

 

Glaze:

  • 1/3 cup coconut ream

  • 1/4 tsp Pure vanilla extract


Directions:
 

  1. Preheat oven to 350F

  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine all dry ingredients for the dough.

  3. In a separate bowl combine egg, oil, honey and vanilla;  stir well

  4. Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry and stir until fully combined. 

  5. On a large piece of parchment paper, place dough in the center.

  6. Using a roller or hand, press dough into rectangle, about 10 x 7”. 

  7. Once dough is spread, evenly top with filing. 

  8. Roll dough on the long side, so it is wide. The dough can be sticky, so I find  it is best to chill before rolling if you find dough sticking to parchment paper.

  9. Once rolled, gently seal the end and chill the roll in the freezer for 10 minutes, so it's easier to cut

  10.  Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or grease with oil

  11. Cut into 1 1/2 inch sections, place each one flat side down on a parchment lined baking sheet

  12. Bake in the middle rack of preheated oven for 20 minutes or until just done and beginning to brown on top.

  13. For the glaze:
    In a small saucepan, bring coconut cream to a simmer then lower heat, stirring occasionally for 5 mins until syrupy  Then mix in vanilla and salt. It will thicken as it cools. Allow it to cool, or refrigerate for 5 minutes 

  14. Remove buns from oven top with glaze and enjoy!
