Berrylicious Cashew Cream Stuffed Cinnamon Rolls Roll-Up
{gluten/dairy/soy/corn/tomato/potato/egg/coconut/refined-sugar free}

In the past, our Christmas Eve tradition has been stuffed french toast with a side of bacon. The french toast was usually made with potato bread and stuffed with what I like to affectionately call a berry cream cheese frosting. Since I can no longer eat gluten, dairy, soy, corn, potato and egg, things needed to be changed up a bit. The best solution I could come up with was to stuff cinnamon rolls with a type of cashew cream. It was my first time making them, so I will admit that I could probably make them better next year, but the meal was still really good. The only thing I would even consider changing is adding more fruit to the filling. This recipe was inspired by The Urban Poser’s Cinnamon Rolls recipe. It’s Paleo, grain-free, and can be made vegan.

 Ingredients For Filling:
1 1/4 cups cashews soaked
3/4 cup frozen berries defrosted (I would recommend increasing this amount to at least 1 cup based on how mine turned out.)
3 tablespoons honey (Or any thick liquid sweetener.)

Ingredients For Dough:
3 cups blanched almond flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 cup oil of choice
2 tablespoons honey (Or any thick liquid sweetener.)
2 flax eggs
2 tablespoons cinnamon

Making It:

  1. Put all ingredients for the filling into a food processor, including the liquid from the defrosted fruit. Process until smooth.
  2. Mix the dry ingredients for the roll-up.
  3. Mix the wet ingredients for the roll-up in a separate bowl, then add to the dry ingredients. 
  4. Place parchment paper on a baking sheet. Dump the dough onto it, and spread it out into a rectangle.
  5. Spread the filling on the dough.
  6. Using the parchment paper to help, roll the dough into a tight log. Stick toothpicks into it, if necessary, to keep it together. Dust with the cinnamon.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minute. Cut into cinnamon roll slices. Feel free to top them with fruit, cashew cream, coconut cream, ice cream, maple syrup – Pretty much anything you want!
