Gluten-free Cinnamon Rolls


This cook book is amazing.  
Not only does it include all the sweet goodness you could ever ask for, the recipes are simple and easy to follow.  
I even adapted it to my lil' guy's needs 
and the results were impressive.  
This cookbook is a must-have for anyone 
following a restricted diet due to allergies, but it's also
great for vegans who feel the need to quench that craving. You can find moreinformation on the author and her creations at:

I've never before made cinnamon rolls from scratch, 
but I always get the urge to bake on cold days.  
This would be a great homeschool activity if your kids
are mini-bakers.  Mine just likes the eating part. 



"Batter" risen in the mixing bowl.

It took some extra flour to get to this state.

Smother in brown sugar and cinnamon.

Ready to rise in the pan.

  1. Those look delicious. Cinnamon buns are one of our favourite homemade treats.

  2. Anytime I can make something special for my lil' guy, I try to. Just looking at his face as he enjoys it is worthwhile!

  3. In Florida, the humidity, even when it a "cold" day causes dough recipes to use up more flour = or leavening agents then the written recipes call for and they need adjustment daily according to temperature and locations. You probably didn't have a technical difficulty. They look delicious.

  4. Brianne-If it were that easy! Recipe glitches I can handle! My technical difficulty came in when I was trying to post the recipe. I am still trying to figure out this blog thing, so I get frustrated when things don't look the way I intend them to. Thanks for the wisdom! My lil' guy loved 'em!

  5. I love Cybel's book too! I learned so much from her when i first embarked on this journey! The rolls look divine!

  6. These look much better than my first attempt at a GF cinnamon roll. Thanks for sharing it at Allergy-Free Wednesdays! Hope to see you back again next week.
    Have a great weekend!

    MCA-Give 'em a go!

  8. Sound delicious. Who doesn't like cinnamon buns. Thanks for sharing on Real Food Fridays. Pinned & twitted!

    1. These aren't as sweet as what you find at the bakery, which is a plus for us!


Thanks for taking the time to leave your thoughts!
