Deliciously Gluten Free and Dairy Free Cinnamon Rolls

Eating cinnamon rolls while opening Christmas gifts has been a tradition in our family since my girls were little. It's just something about those sticky, gooey, doughy, rolls of yummyness that we have always loved. Even with a change of dietary restrictions we have been able to keep the tradition alive.

Over the years I have played around with different recipes. Each one adding a little bit of this or a little bit of that. This year is no different. I decided to somewhat revamp the recipe  I've been using for the past couple years.. again... and I think I have it nailed down to something really awesome.


First Things First - Baking without Gluten is Hard


For years I tried to master the ultimate gluten-free bread. Me not being the best of bakers doesn't help, but I just couldn't seem to master a good, airy bread loaf for the life of me.. so I gave up.

Baking without gluten is hard. Gluten-free breads are temperamental. Do you do two rises or one? Do you mix a little or a lot? Do you spoon the flour to measure it out or just scoop it. There are SO many different aspects of baking without gluten that I just about stopped trying.

Except for when it came to the cinnamon rolls.

As long as I can continue cook, there will always be cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning, so giving up on making them just isn't an option.

With or Without.. It's Your Pick


Yes, this is a tasty gluten-free and dairy-free recipe on it's own, but with just a few adjustments, you can make it work for what your family enjoys.

Here in my home, not everyone is dairy-free and because of that, I will make two different icings. One with dairy ingredients (just use regular cream cheese) and one without. My cashew cream is pretty darn amazing, but it does taste a little different, so making two icing versions is something I will happily do.

  2. These look so yummy although I know I wouldn't take the time to bake them lol I used to love cinnamon rolls as a kid (yep..the pop out of the can kind with extra icing!) and I do miss them but since going healthier I haven't had them and TBH they would be way to sickly sweet for me now, but I do sometimes crave one of those ooey gooey cinnamon rolls. And the way they smell in the morning is so good!
