Paleo Cinnamon Rolls

Occasionally, I get a sweet craving for breakfast.  To be honest, it is just a craving for cinnamon rolls and it is always after I have seen someone post on Facebook a gluten filled cinnamon roll.  I decided to tackle the ‘cinnamon roll’ and make Paleo cinnamon rolls.  These cinnamon rolls lack the gluten and dairy my gut can not handle.  Instead of using icing, I just smear my cinnamon rolls with raw unfiltered honey and sprinkle a little added cinnamon on top.

    I don’t have coconut sugar, is there a substitute?

      I would use extra maple syrup of honey. It will not have a grainy texture from the coconut sugar, but the sweet taste will be present. Good luck! Tag me on instragram if you make them! I love seeing pictures of my creations from others!
