YUMMMY NO-YEAST CINNAMON ROLLS
Recipe by Healthy Recipe Mom, Marni, (mom of three)
“My kids loved these- they had fun making them together and thought the fresh-out-of-the-oven taste was fantastic. These can easily be reheated in a toaster oven for just a few minutes. These would also be a good lunch box treat.”

surface and knead for 1-2 minutes. Roll out into rectangle.
– Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Blue Agave Cinnamon Flavored
Syrup. Pour a thin layer of this syrup onto the rectangle of dough.

raisins, coconut, apples (or all three!). Roll up like a jelly roll and
pinch ends closed. Cut into 1″ pieces and lay into a round cake
pan with edges touching. Bake in preheated oven for 20-25
Options: For special occasions your may want an additional topping. Here are some ideas form Marni: As soon as you take rolls out of the oven, top with a drizzle of the cinnamon syrup and spread it around to your liking. Or, make a bit of frosting glaze by combining Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Powdered Sugar and milk to your desired consistency and drizzle over the rolls.
To make these gluten free, substitute Pamela’s Baking & Pancake mix for the flour and add only 1 tsp baking powder. Use coconut oil instead of organic shortening or butter.
It feels great to prepare home-made cinnamon rolls with a healthier sweetener that tastes good. On a chilly morning or afternoon, these warm rolls will bring smiles to your kids while fueling them with apples, raisins, cinnamon, nuts and coconut!
