Instructions

For the Cinnamon Rolls

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a small rectangle casserole dish (about 8x6") or small pie pan (about 6-7”) with coconut oil or coconut oil (avocado oil) spray.

  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the tapioca flour, almond flour, psyllium husk powder, baking powder and salt.

  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, maple syrup, vinegar, coconut oil and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until fully combined.

    Add 1.5 tablespoons of the warm water to the dough and mix well. Allow the dough to rest for about 8 minutes to firm up.

  4. Place a large piece of parchment paper on a large cutting board or baking sheet, then sprinkle 1 tablespoon of tapioca flour over the parchment paper. Sprinkle more tapioca on your hands and the top of the dough, then take your dough and roll it into a ball with your hands.

    Use your hands to shape the dough into a rectangle. Then, use a rolling pin to roll it evenly into an 8x12" flat rectangle.

  5. In a small mixing bowl, combine the coconut sugar and cinnamon for the filling. Brush the melted ghee evenly all over the dough, then sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture on top, making sure to get as close to the edges as possible.

  6. Use the short side (8 inch) and use the parchment paper as needed, to carefully roll the dough into a log, as tightly as possible. Cut the log into nine even pieces.

    Place each roll, flat side down, into the prepared baking pan and bake for 18-20 minutes, or until the edges are slightly brown.
