21 Dec Yummy Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls
Hi Friends! Tis the Season for shopping, wrapping, caroling, giving, and of course eating. If you are reading this blog it’s probably for one of these reason; you have Celiac disease or a gluten sensitivity or you know someone who does. Am I right?
Christmas morning breakfast is a big deal in most homes, ours included. Cinnamon Rolls are always a staple and for the past 2 years since my diagnosis, I’ve had to watch everyone else fight for the middle roll with all of the icing, all while I sit and have a pity party for myself and wipe the drool off my face. I’m still working on getting over the pity party but I’m determined that I will enjoy cinnamon rolls with everyone else this Christmas. So I set out to make the perfect, most delicious cinnamon rolls, gluten free! Before I share the recipe with you, please remember that I said the “perfect” and “delicious” not HEALTHY. 90% of the year I eat a very healthy breakfast but I believe that moderation is key, and so for this recipe, we are going for taste.
- 3 cups Gluten Free Flour ( I prefer Bob’s Red Mill brand)
- 4 ½ tsp baking powder
- ¾ tsp salt
- 3 tbsp butter (melted)
- ¾ cup granulated sugar (divided)
- 1 ½ cups milk (divided) *any milk can be used here.
- 1 egg
- ¼ cup butter (softened)
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- Preheat the oven to 425°.
- In a large bowl, combine the gluten free flour, baking powder, salt and 3 tbsp melted butter.
- Add the ¼ cup sugar, 1 ¼ cup milk and 1 egg, combine until a dough forms.
- Place the dough on a surface sprinkled with gluten free flour.
- Roll the dough out into a rectangle.
- Spread the butter onto the dough.
- Combine the remaining sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and sprinkle evenly across the dough. Roll the dough up.
- Slice the dough every ½ inch.
- Place the rolls in a cake pan or pie plate sprayed with cooking spray.
- Bake 20-25 minutes.
- While the cinnamon rolls are baking, whisk the remaining ¼ cup milk and 1 cup powdered sugar together in a small bowl.
- Drizzle the icing over the cinnamon rolls and serve.
Holidays can be a tough time for those of us with food allergies. Be on the lookout for my next blog post where I will share my tips for surviving the holidays with Celiac or other food allergies!
Yours in good health,
