    Have you made my Messy Dark Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls or Banana Bread Cinnamon Rolls yet? They have set us up for these dreamy Mini Sweet Potato Cinnamon Rolls today.

    I have also been on such a sweet potato kick lately, which is so unlike me. I spent the first 26 years of my life dreading having sweet potatoes and didn’t enjoy them in any capacity. Now I am over here craving sweet potato fries, sweet potato brownies, sweet potato quiche, squash pasta and more (you get the point). I am pretty much making up for lost time over here.

    What I love most about using sweet potato is how diverse it is. You can use it in recipes just like you would banana or applesauce and it can be made in a sweet dessert or a savory recipe of sorts.

    These Mini Sweet Potato Cinnamon Rolls are vegan-friendly and gluten-free as well. They require minimal steps and are so simple to make. When I asked you guys what you wanted more of this year, there were many different request but some common ones include: vegan recipes, nut free recipes and recipes you can make with minimal ingredients. Well friends, this recipe has all of that going on and then some.

    I love that you can use gluten-free baking flour or oat flour in them. You can use regular butter, vegan butter or even ghee. And they are sweetened with coconut sugar for the most delicious healthy bite.

    They also have my two baking staples in them, Simply Organic Cinnamon and Vanilla Extract. I don’t have any recipes on the blog that don’t include these two gems! We have made a handful of healthy recipes on the blog featuring Simply Organic like those Mushroom TacosPaleo Brownie Batter TrufflesPaleo Chocolate Ginger CookiesSuper Simple Turmeric Falafel and more!

    Simply Organic and I have partnered for 2018 to bring you even more delicious recipes featuring their spices and more. You have seen my insane Simply Organic collection via my stories and I love the quality products that they offer.

    Prep Time 5 mins
    Cook Time 20 mins
    Total Time 25 mins
    Yields 12 small cinnamon rolls

    Ingredients

      Sweet potato filling

      • 1/4 cup sweet potato puree
      • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
      • 1 1/2 teaspoons Simply Organic Cinnamon
      • 1 teaspoon Simply Organic Vanilla Extract

      Dough

      • 2 cups gluten-free flour (oat flour can also work)
      • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
      • 4 teaspoons baking powder
      • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
      • 3 tablespoons butter (vegan butter or regular butter or ghee works)
      • 1 cup coconut milk (or your preferred milk)

      Directions

      1. Preheat oven to 350ºF and grease a baking dish (any size will work but I used 8 inch round)
      2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients for dough
      3. Next add the dough out onto a floured surface (I used a large cutting board)
      4. Sprinkle a rolling pin with flour and begin to roll it out into a long rectangle (you may need to add more flour as you roll so the dough doesn't get sticky! You can also use a water bottle if you don't have a rolling pin)
      5. In a small bowl, mix together the filling ingredients
      6. Spread mixture over rolled out dough and roll up dough into cinnamon roll shape and cut into 12-ish rolls
      7. Place in baking dish and bake for about 20 minutes or until the dough seems firm and the inside is still gooey and dreamy!
      8. *Will stay good in airtight container for about 5 days

      I have tried to make traditional cinnamon rolls with gluten free flour and have failed so many times so I am so eager to try these out! I love that you still got the spiral in the dough with them, it has been a struggle to get that!

      Hi Rachel! How much vanilla? I plan on making these today! I didn’t see the vanilla amount …. I could be blinded by the amazing photos though!

      I’d love to try these with cassava flour. Do you think that would work?
