Gluten-Free Cinnamon Rolls (Vegan and Nut-Free Too)

I have absolutely fallen in love with Detoxinista, and these Cinnamon Rolls are AMAZING! I love that they are made with pumpkin and chia or flax seed, and the glaze made with cashews.

A few tips before baking.

  • Read every single one of Megan’s words on the recipe–from the intro, to the tips, ingredients, and actual directions. Read them ALL before starting.
  • I used ground flax seed instead of ground chia, simply because I didn’t have ground chia.
  • I found that the Maple Glaze was delicious and enough, so we didn’t need to use the Powdered Sugar Glaze (yay for less sugar!).
  • For the filling, with my first batch I did not use enough sugar or cinnamon. Therefore, when I rolled them, there wasn’t a clear swirl, and it definitely needed more flavor. Second batch, I filled a 1/2 cup about 3/4 full with coconut sugar and spread that across the dough. And then I covered it heavily with cinnamon.

Good luck!

Alex founded Hello My Tribe not because she was an expert on motherhood, but because she was a mom who desperately needed support and community. During those tough first months of motherhood, Alex spent day after day reading and learning about motherhood. She learned: 1. She wasn’t alone in her feelings about motherhood. 2. Everything we could have ever dreamt of existed for the baby, but there was a lack of resources for the woman/mother 3. There are many maternal health issues in our country that need attention and need to be addressed. Hello My Tribe was built upon these needs. Previous to launching Hello My Tribe in 2016, Alex was a professional and volunteer fundraiser, raising millions of dollars for non-profit organizations. Alex lives in Austin, TX with her son and two rescue dogs.
