How to Make Gluten-Free Cinnamon Rolls

These don't look like your grandmother's cinnamon rolls, admittedly. But Grandma never made gluten-free baked goods, much less ones with additional fiber!

You'll need to get ahold of the Bob's Red Mill gluten-free baking blend (the 1-to-1 blend, in the blue bag). We find that that particular blend produces incredibly reliable results, and the xanthan gum, which you typically need for gluten-free baked goods. You also need oat flour, which adds some fiber and a nutty taste to the cinnamon rolls. The dough comes together in the bowl of a stand mixer with a little yeast. It's not tough to put together, it just takes a little finesse!

Once you have the dough ready to go, roll it up tightly and then slice it into "rolls." Transfer them to a muffin tin and let them rest for an hour. These gluten-free cinnamon rolls bake up beautifully, and require very little else to be delicious. A bit of good quality maple syrup over the top while they're cooling from the oven tastes really good, in lieu of the standard confectioners' sugar glaze that we're all accustomed to. (This is far less cloyingly sweet.)

How to Serve Gluten-Free Cinnamon Rolls

We love these hot out of the oven, but not too hot! (Patience is a virtue, they say.) But we've prepped them here as a fun breakfast or maybe even a hearty sweet snack for the middle of the afternoon. If you need to reheat them, pop them in the toaster oven or a low oven, wrapped loosely in foil. They should perk right up.

Once they're cool enough to handle you can transfer them to prep containers and add other goodies in there to boost up the nutrition of this meal prep. We like raisins, almonds, and carrots as pictured, but you can put together some combo of fats, protein, and some vitamins because let's face it, these cinnamon rolls aren't going to be the most nutritious thing you eat all day. However, they do have some protein, fiber, and healthy fats, so it's not the same as eating

Substitutions and Alterations

Well, let's be honest. This is a baking recipe, and a gluten-free one at that, which means it's not the easiest recipe to tinker with before things start to potentially go sideways. We wouldn't do too much to mess with success, but you can do the following pretty safely, without affecting the success of your gluten-free cinnamon roll meal prep.

  • Brush the top with honey or agave nectar instead of maple syrup.
  • Sprinkle the top with coconut sugar or demerara sugar.
  • Go totally old school and make a simple glaze with some milk and confectioners' sugar and drizzle across the top. (We'd do this sparingly, but you do you!)
