Christmas recipe! Every year no matter what we put together for breakfast Christmas morning, cinnamon rolls are involved. Sometimes store bought, sometimes homemade, but never paleo! We also did make a regular batch though. As far as protein goes, these are packed! My recipe made 4, but you can always double it for more or change the size you are cutting them.
-1 egg white
- 2T unsweetened vanilla almond milk
-1/2t baking powder
-1/2t vanilla extract
-1/2t butter extract
-1/4t baking soda
-1/4t dry active yeast
-3T coconut flour
-3T vanilla whey protein powder
-1T almond flour (can sub for more flour of choice)
-cinnamon to taste
-stevia to taste
-coconut oil spray
-extra flour for rolling (any works: oat, coconut, almond, all purpose, ect)
I began by mixing the egg white and almond milk with a fork until well mixed. When the liquids were smooth, I added all other dry ingredients except for 1-2T of the coconut flour, the cinnamon, and the stevia. You'll want a very thick and dry mix so you add the flour slowly to make sure it is thick (you may need more flour as you go). When thick enough to pick up with your hands, roll out over your counter/sheet pan. Make sure you have flour underneath, VERY important so it rolls out smooth. Just arrange it into a rectangle shape, not too thin but still rollable. Spray the dough with coconut oil so your cinnamon/stevia mixture will stick. All you need to do is stir the amount of cinnamon/stevia you want and sprinkle a good layer all over. Next, you want to slowly start to roll the dough into a log. When rolled, cut into as many rolls as you'd like to make and set them in a warm over for about 30 minutes so the yeast can rise. When the timer is finished, pull the rolls out of the oven and preheat to 350F. When the oven is up to temperature, bake for 10-13 minutes or until golden brown.
For traditional icing, you would mix confectioners sugar and milk. I chose to you cinnamon swirl whey thinned with almond milk which was even better! Merry Christmas and I hope you enjoy!!
