Sweet Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls from Scratch
For the rolls:
- 2 cups arrowroot powder
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1/2 cup white rice flour
- 6 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tsp Salt
- 6 tbsp water
- 3 tbsp agave
- 3 tbsp ghee
- 2 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup organic pumpkin puree
- 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut cream
For The Filling:
- 4 tbsp ghee
- 6 tbsp coconut sugar
- 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
- 1 tsp ceylon cinnamon
For The Frosting:
- 1 5.4 oz can of organic unsweetened coconut cream
- 1/3 cup coconut milk powder sifted through a sifter
- 2 tbsp arrowroot flour
- 1/2 tsp alcohol free vanilla extract
- 1 cup sugar free powdered sugar I like the brand Swerve
- Preheat the oven to 375F.
- In a large mixing bowl, add the dry ingredients.
- In a microwave safe measuring cup, heat the almond milk, agave, dairy free butter and water until it reaches 110 degrees F. Whisk in the mixture into the dry ingredients bowl, with the pumpkin puree and the yogurt. Stir until a dough forms. If your dough is too wet, add a little bit of additional almond flour.
- On a light floured surface, knead the dough for about 1 minutes until it comes together. (Don’t knead for too long or it will not be as fluffy!)
- Place the kneaded dough back in the original bowl to rest for 10 minutes.
- Once rest, roll it out on a floured surface to a rectangle— I think mine was around 14 x 10 inches.
- Using a spatula, spread the 4 tbsp of dairy free butter over it. In a small bowl, mix together the coconut sugar, pumpkin spice and cinnamon. Spread it all over the buttered dough but make sure to leave a strip without sugar at one of the edges— this will help when you go to seal it.
- Tightly roll up the prepared dough and cut into rolls using a very sharp knife.
- Place the rolls in a pie dish. Bake for 20 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Then cover with foil and bake for an additional 8-10 minutes— the foil will help to prevent burning.
- While the rolls bake, prepare the glaze by whisking everything together until thick and creamy.
- Once the rolls are finished, pour the glaze over the finished cinnamon rolls and enjoy!
