Quick Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls

The idea to make these popped into my mind when I made **Jubes** Quick Gluten Free Scones #220200 for the first time. Instead of cutting out scones I rolled the flattened dough and thought that actually I could have filled it. So I made a second batch of dough and made up my own version of cinnamon roll filling. I really liked that they were not overly sweet as the dough is not sweetened. As usual, I used rice syrup, but will suggest honey which might be slightly sweeter. Instead of the pine nuts you can of course use any other nut you like. I thought about pecans and maple syrup for the filling - if anyone feels like trying that, please tell me how it turned out!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups gluten-free bread mix
  • 23 cup whipping cream
  • water
  • 2 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 200 ° Celsius.
  2. Mix gluten-free bread flour mix and cream lightly. You should just barely nead to get a soft dough. If it's too crumbly, add water by tablespoons until the consistency is so that you can just form a ball of dough to roll out.
  3. Roll the dough out between two sheets of nonstick baking paper into a rectangle as thinly as possible. I managed about 1/2 inch thickness.
  4. Cream together butter, honey and cinnamon.
  5. Gently brush the mixture on the dough, maybe using a knife or your fingers. If the mass is too solid to brush, lightly melt it in a water bath so that it becomes softer but not liquid.
  6. Sprinkle with chopped pine nuts.
  7. Carefully roll the dough into a log.
  8. Using a sharp knife dusted with some rice flour, cut it into 14 rolls.
  9. If the filling is too runny, cover the log with cling-wrap and let it settle in the fridge for some minutes, then cut into rolls.
  10. Place rolls on a baking tray layered with baking paper. As **Jubes** suggests, put them together close to assist rising.
  11. Brush the top of the rolls with milk.
  12. Bake for about 10 minutes or until they're done.
  13. Enjoy!

These were great. A bit difficult to roll up, but I guess it depends on what kind of mix you use. They tasted great. My kids loved them too. I think we liked them so much because they weren't as disgustingly sweet as cinnamon rolls usually are. They were just right. Like a little bread roll mixed with a cinnamon roll. Perfect with coffee. Thanks for the recipe :)
