I am continually trying to create an awesome grain-free, sugar-free recipe for cinnamon rolls. I have the flavor down. I make the dough, I roll it out, I add the cinnamon and coconut sugar filling…and then I try to roll it up. This is where it always falls apart.

It’s easy to roll out a gluten-filled dough for cinnamon rolls because the gluten acts as a binder. When it comes to grain-free baking, this aspect is tough because it just doesn’t hold together like gluten. So Im’ still working on a recipe for the dough, but in the meantime, I’m in love with these cookies.

They taste exactly like a delicious cinnamon roll, just in cookie form. Because they’re cookies, they’re also way easier to make. This recipe makes about 16 cookies.
