Is this heaven? Or a grain free/gluten-free cinnamon roll? Maybe both!
I've hesitated making cinnamon rolls for two reasons in the past:
So, yes, they do take more work than slapping some trans-fat-laden circles in a pan, or buying them, but making cinnamon rolls at home is actually pretty easy and fun to do. Get ready to use your fingers & you have my permission to lick at will! ;-)
Next, yes, my cinnamon rolls are more dense that anything made that rises with yeast, but they do have a good amount of moisture if you are careful not to over-bake them. They're a little like scones & good with a cup of coffee or tea. Plus, the pecans add extra yummy goodness and the vanilla icing is over-the-top delicious and low-sugar, too!
1. Mix all of these ingredients with an electric mixer:
2. Get out 2 large pieces of parchment paper. Put the dough on one piece and cover with the second piece.
3. Roll out the dough into a rectangle approx 16x12 inches. Be careful not to make it too thin in any one spot. Remove the top piece.
4. Spread out 1/2 cup honey or maple syrup over the dough, all the way to the edges. (Or, do the low-carb option, next)
