Updated: Nov 6, 2022

It is hard to achieve the chewy texture of a traditional cinnamon roll without any added starch when you are baking with gluten-free flour. But if you are craving that gooey goodness from biting into a fresh warm cinnamon muffin, these will do the trick! These gluten and grain free rolls are also sugar-free, sweetened only by the date paste filling and honey, making them completely SCD friendly!

  1. Begin by making the date paste for the filling. Soak dates in hot water for about 15 minutes to soften them.

  2. Drain the water and transfer the dates to a food processor. Add water, cinnamon and ground ginger. Process until a smooth paste forms. Scrape down the sides of processor as needed.

  3. Preheat oven to 325ºF and line a baking tray with parchment paper.

  4. Place all ingredients for the dough in a mixing bowl and mix to form the dough.

6. Spread the filling around and add an extra drizzle of honey and sprinkle of cinnamon.
