PULL APART CINNAMON ROLLS With Cream Cheese Frosting

Cinnamon rolls. THE ULTIMATE combo of flavours. Not sure who thought of putting cream cheese and cinnamon together, but that person is a genius.

When I was a kid, my Oma would make “Wespennester” (translated to “Wasp Nests”) with my brother and I- they’re a cinnamon roll WITHOUT the cinnamon or cream cheese frosting. For some imagery, they’re a golden rolled up pastry of glory coated in butter and sugar. What I remember about making Wespennester together though, is pulling them apart after they came out of the oven all warm and fresh.

That was the goal with this recipe: Simply super fun to pull apart and enjoy!

Here’s an easy, gluten free alternative that won’t cause a crazy blood sugar spike like a traditional cinnamon roll!

Method:
1) Mix all dry ingredients. Once thoroughly combined, add the wet and stir to combine.
2) Knead the dough. It should be crumbly at first, but will eventually form a ball.
3) Refrigerate for an hour.
4) Preheat oven to 350 and remove the dough from the fridge.
5) Place between 2 sheets of parchment paper. Roll into a rectangle; about 1/2-1 cm thick.
6) Coat in butter spray and sprinkle with cinnamon and sweetener.
7) Roll the long way and slice into 8 rolls.
8) Spray with butter spray to avoid burning. Bake for 5-8 minutes, depending on the oven.
9) Drizzle with icing and additional cinnamon.

ENJOY!!
