APPLE CINNAMON ROLLS

'IMPERFECTLY DELICIOUS'

Dough:

  • 2 cup brown rice flour
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 tbsp virgin coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp physillium husk
  • 1 tbsp coconut palm sugar
  • 1 tsp organic baking powder
  • A pinch sea salt

Filling:

  • 3-4 apples
  • 1 cup soft dates (soaked previously)
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon powder

This summer i have learned how to make vegan cinnamon rolls thanks to my danish friend Chanette. With the apple season, i thought to make some buns with apple and cinnamon taste, so i gave them i try and the result was magic!. Perfect for a cozy evening with a cup of tea. If you make double the quantity, you can keep some of them in the freezer and just warm up in the oven when you feel for a "sweet moment".

To make the filling, peel the apples (optional) and grate. Place the soaked dates and coconut oil in a blender and mix. Pour the mix in a saucepan, add the grated apples and cinnamon and heat until boil. Let it cool down on the counter while you are preparing the dough.

To make the dough, preheat the oven tot 200°C. Combine the water with the physillium husk, stir and leave on the counter for 15 minutes. Mix in a big container the flours, baking powder, coconut palm sugar and salt. Pour the water mix into the container and add the coconut oil. Stir all the ingredients with a rubber spatula. Now work the dough with your hands (add more water if needed, we want to make a consistence but malleable dough). Sprinkle some water on the counter and divide the dough into two. Roll out each part of dough by using a baking roller (one at the time). Spread some filling with a spoon (creating a thin layer). Roll the dough and cut small pieces. Place the pieces, on an oven tray covered with parchment paper. Brush with some extra coconut oil the top of the bums. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Enjoy!
