peanut butter cinnamon rolls recipe with icing

Cinnamon Roll Method

  1. Preheat oven to 190°C.
  2. In a large bowl mix dry ingredients.
  3. Heat butter in a small bowl until melted. In a separate bowl mix eggs, apple cider vinegar, milk, water and melted butter until well combined.
  4. Use your hands to knead the dough. Form it into a large ball. Set aside.

Filling Method

Heat coconut oil in a small bowl until melted. Stir in peanut butter, cinnamon powder and coconut sugar.

For the Glaze

While the cinnamon roll is baking, prepare the frosting. In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the glaze ingredients until smooth.

How to Make Your Cinnamon Rolls

1. Roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface into a large rectangle. (I used almond flour) Spread the peanut butter filling as evenly as possible over the rectangle, making sure to reach to the sides so the outer rolls have enough filling.

2. Roll the dough up tightly from the long end. Slice it into 7 equal rounds. Place the rolls into a baking tin.

3. First, bake rolls for 25 minutes or until slightly golden brown. After 25 minutes reduce heat to 160°C and put it back to oven an extra 15 minutes.

4. Remove the cinnamon rolls from the oven and let cool in the pan for at least 10 minutes. Once cool, remove from pan and drizzle frosting over the rolls before serving.

Chef Tip:

If you want crunchy cinnamon rolls try with crunchy peanut butter instead of smooth.
