Sure it is now September and we have a ton of apple and pumpkin content coming over the next few weeks, but I needed to share one more blueberry recipe before moving into all the Fall eats.

These Healthy Homemade Blueberry Cinnamon Rolls are insane. I made them one afternoon when I had an hour to spare and was randomly craving a blueberry pastry of sorts. Naturally I turn to cinnamon rolls because they are one of my favorite things to bake and eat and saw a bag of frozen organic blueberries in the freezer, and decided to whip up a little somethin’ somethin’.

I like to think there is a new cinnamon roll recipe coming every single month. That will be my goal for us and so far, we’ve been making it happen. We shared those vegan cinnamon rolls, then the giant gluten-free cinnamon roll SKILLET and today these bloob cinnamon rolls.

They’re made with super simple ingredients, no packets of yeast needed (just ACV) and no refined sugar or gluten in this recipe!

We do use dairy in these rolls because the Vital Farm’s Grass-fed Butter is too good not to use. I have been baking with it now for the past few months and I don’t know why I didn’t use butter for so long. It adds the best flavor to the rolls and makes them taste absolutely amazing. I only use Vital Farm’s butter because it’s grass-fed, I trust the farms they get their butter from and it’s affordable to buy for quality butter.

If you whip up these Healthy Homemade Blueberry Cinnamon Rolls don’t forget to share with me on Instagram! I cannot wait to see them and hear what you think.

  1. My batter did not turn out “dough like” at all… I followed the directions to a T… it was more like cake batter. Do you have to refrigerate the dough before rolling it out? Thanks!

  2. My mouth is watering over these right now! I just made some cherry pie cinnamon rolls but I have never made blueberry ones. I am definitely going to try these. You have such beautiful photos too!

  3. You mention cinnamon in the dough ingredients but not in the recipe..just a heads up! These were delicious! I found you on IG & now you’re one of my top 5. 😍

  4. Hey, I subbed recipe with half almond /half oat flour as it said they could be subbed and it’s not forming a dough at all more like a muffin mix. Definitely not roll-able. Any suggestions. I keep adding more pat flour but still not forming dough consistency. Anyone else try almond flour successfully?

    1. i haven’t tried half/half but i do know almond works! it can vary based off the brand you use since each flour has a different consistency.

  5. Pingback: Apple Blondies
  6. Can’t wait for your book to come out! Silly question, after rolling the dough into a rectangle it says to then roll from the “bottom up” into a roll… Which side is the bottom? The long side or the short side of the rectangle?

  7. This dough and filling were absolutely delicious. Though, I did have a little trouble figuring out when it would be finished baking—next time, I think I’ll try baking them in individual muffin tins…have you tried that?
