Gluten-Free Honey Cinnamon Rolls
Enticingly addictive Gluten-Free Honey Cinnamon Rolls…Buttery, sticky rolls made with honey, cinnamon, nutmeg, and generously topped with cinnnamon butter and cream cheese frosting. Every bite is filled with sweet, deliciousness melting in your mouth. There is nothing not to love about these gluten-free honey cinnamon rolls.
First, these are not your classic cinnamon rolls. I wanted to create extra flavour and make them extra sticky. The rolls are perfectly spiced with cinnamon and a hint of nutmeg. But it is the honey that makes these gluten-free rolls extra special. But let’s not forget the frosting -> made with butter, cream cheese, cinnamon, vanilla and powdered sugar. So so good!

♥ Make the dough.
To make these honey cinnamon rolls, you start with the dough. Mix the flour, rapid rise yeast, baking soda, cinnamon and a pinch of salt. Then add warm milk, butter, honey, egg and apple cider vinegar. Mix until smooth and let the dough rest for a few minutes. The apple cider vinegar with baking soda gives the dough a little help to rise.
♥ Shape the dough.
Now you get to shape the rolls and add the filling. I combined butter with honey and a good sprinkle of coconut sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg for the filling. Roll the dough, cut into rolls and place them into a baking dish. I used a pie plate because they fit in perfectly. But you can use a baking dish that works for you.
♥ Frost the rolls.
As soon as the rolls come out of the oven, you spread the delicious frosting over the top. The frosting will melt right into the rolls, making them sweet, extra cinnamony and sticky just the way rolls should be. I wanted the frosting to have some depth, so I used butter, cream cheese, cinnamon and vanilla. A perfect end to the most delicious gluten-free honey cinnamon rolls.
When it comes to rolls, they should be eaten fresh right out of the oven. That’s when they are the best. This recipe calls for eight small rolls or four larger ones. I always make small rolls, because they are rich and one small roll is all you need. But if you decide to make the larger rolls, allow about eight minutes for extra baking time. If you have any leftovers for the next day, I recommend to pop them in the microwave for about 15 seconds, and they will taste just as fresh.
♥ Can you make the honey cinnamon rolls ahead of time?
Absolutely! I know some of you may be thinking who wants to be making honey cinnamon rolls early in the morning? No problem, to get a jump start you can make the rolls one to two days in advance and let them rise in the fridge. If you are using the fridge method, allow the rolls to rise for a minimum of 24 hours. When you are ready to bake them, bring them to room temperature, about 45 minutes, and then pop them in the oven. They make for a perfect Sunday brunch treat. Just imagine your home filled with the aroma of freshly baked honey cinnamon rolls, and you get to sleep in. Now, this is something to celebrate…Enjoy!
