Y’all, I have a thing for beautiful pink lady apples. The vibrant bright pink color and the flavor. I don’t loveeee all the fruits, not gonna lie, but when it comes to these apples (and honorable mention to honey crisp apples).. I just really love them.
So I decided a few weeks ago to make these lil cuties. And they turned out just how I wanted :) look I understand they don’t look Ike your regular ole’ cinnamon rolls, but hear me out- if you’re looking for a paleo, no sugar added, vegan, super flavorful and low carb-ish cinnamon roll...This just might be your cup of tea. Alright here ya go. Tag me on instagram if you make them or leave a comment below!
Apple Pie Cinnamon Rolls
Recipe by The Daily Kale
2 cups almond flour
3 tbsp @Lakanto golden monkfruit
2 tbsp psyllium husk
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
3/4 cup almond milk
1/2 pink lady apple
2 tbsp maple syrup (@choczero )
3 tbsp Lakanto golden
1 tbsp coconut oil
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp nutmeg
Pinch of salt
For the filling, blend everything together until it makes an apple sauce like consistency.
Cream cheese Icing ingredients:
6 tbsp cream cheese(softened @kitehillfoods)
1 tbsp @lakanto golden
1 tsp lemon juice
2 tbsp maple syrup
Pinch of nutmeg and cinnamon
Stir everything together until it’s smooth and creamy.
Preheat oven to 350.
For the dough, mix all dry ingredients together first, then add in the wet and stir.
Then knead the dough in the bowl a little, forming a ball.
Let dough ball sit for 5-10 minutes covered before rolling out into a rectangle.
*This is an important step as it gives the psyllium husk time to combine with the other ingredients, so the dough won’t break as much.
Spread the filling evenly all over the dough, don’t get too close to the edges cause you’re going to be rolling that area. Add crushed mini bunuelos on top of the filling (optional). Roll width wise, slowly and with the help of your parchment paper so it doesn’t break.
Once it’s in a long roll, cut into the sizes you prefer and place on a *sprayed with oil* parchment paper lined pan. Press them down a bit if you want to.
Bake for 20-25 minutes.
Add crushed mini bunuelos to the top and pour or drizzle on the cream cheese frosting.
