Guys, I have a total weakness for baked goods. Mmm. It’s partially a “comfort” thing because I grew up baking with my mom and sisters. It makes me happy!  My 3 year old already bakes with me all the time. We try to balance making healthier dishes with treats like this though.  He’s not even a big cinnamon roll eater- he just wants the icing and sugar haha

I know I just posted a recipe here the other day but I had to get this recipe up in time for Mother’s Day because there is no treat I’d want more than this one! SO good! I’ve made many cinnamon rolls over the years and these are by far the best! I feel like I finally got the recipe juuuust right which is always exciting.  These also use coconut sugar instead of cane although either will work. I haven’t tried making these with gluten free flour but I’m sure it could work!  You can also get creative and try adding things to the filling like mini chocolate chips, unsweetened coconut, raisins etc In the Fall, I love adding some pumpkin puree- omg so good.

Okay, enough talk- go make yourself a batch of these because you deserve it Mama!

Instructions
Dough
  1. In a large bowl, combine the coconut sugar, yeast and non dairy milk. Let it sit for 15min until it starts to foam.
  2. Add the oil, mix, then add the dry ingredients (add the flour slowly, you may not need all of it) and stir to combine.
  3. Knead the dough for a few minutes. If it's crazy sticky, sprinkle in more flour and continue to knead until smooth and only slightly sticky. Form into a ball, place in a bowl, cover with a tea towel and let it sit for 30min.
  4. After 30min, take your dough and place in on a large, flat, floured surface. Use a rolling pin to roll it out into a large rectangle, roughly 12x10.
Filling
  1. In a bowl, mix together all of the filling ingredients.
  2. Starting at one of the long sides, start rolling your dough into a long tube shape. Once you reach the end, pinch the dough together to help create a seam.
  3. Spoon mixture onto the rolled out dough, spreading it out towards the edges. Leave a small gap on either of the long sides.
  4. Use a serrated knife to cut the roll into 9 pieces. Place each piece into a greased pan (round or square). They will expand when they cook so leave a little room between each one. Let rise for 15min.
  5. Preheat the oven to 350F and cool the rolls for 25-30 minutes.
Icing
  1. Combine icing ingredients. Use a spoon to drizzle/pour the icing over the cinnamon rolls. I like to do this while they are still quite warm so that it melts and seeps through the cracks but if you want a thicker icing, wait until the rolls cool.
