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
