Mini Cinnamon Rolls

This recipe may or may not have taken a few tries to perfect but we have some tips to make it turn out amazing!! We recommend not using solely almond, oat, coconut or buckwheat flour if substituting for a gluten-free option, A mix of buckwheat, coconut and almond worked best for us! Being careful about adding too much milk as well helped. Also, we recommend rolling the dough out on a sheet of plastic wrap to help facilitate rolling as well. Overall this was pretty delicious and a healthier homemade alternative, but definitely didn’t top Grounds Cinnamon Buns! The caramel layer on the bottom is definitely the best part, and adding a little bit of whip cream or ice cream never hurt nobody! Would we make it again, not sure… Try it and let us know what you think!!

  • Author:




  • ½ large banana 
  • 6 tbsp flour (paleo, gf, or regular all work)
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 14 tbsp almond milk



  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Coconut oil for brushing 



  • 1 heaping tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp coconut milk cream
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Mix the dough ingredients together in a bowl until a thick dough forms. Because different brands of flour blends can vary, start with a little almond milk and add more as needed. I used 1 tbsp for regular all-purpose and 4 for gluten free. If you add too much almond milk, add a little more flour until a thick dough forms. Dough should be thick but may be a bit sticky. 
  2. Roll out dough with hands on a floured surface (sprinkle flour on dough and hands to prevent sticking) Don’t roll too thin. Brush with melted coconut oil. Put cinnamon sugar mixture on top. Gently press cinnamon sugar mixture to avoid it spilling out, Roll up dough and cut into 3 equal pieces. 
  3. In a large tall mug stir together coconut sugar, coconut milk cream and salt. Place sliced cinnamon rolls on top. Microwave for about 90 seconds. Let cool slightly and enjoy.
