First of all let me just say OMG. That is right…these things are so good they have me talking like a teenage girl. Trust me…that doesn’t happen very often.
I will admit when I started out on my adventure of developing a clean eating cinnamon roll recipe, I did not have very high hopes. I mean…how could something as perfect and amazing as cinnamon rolls… in all there warm, sugary, buttery gooeiness…be made clean. It took me a couple of tries, but I am happy to say it can be done.
Seriously, these things are so good. I don’t even have anything else talk to you about today…all I can think about are these rolls.
The roll part is awesome. You don’t even miss the white flour. And the filling…soooo good. Butter, raw sugar, and cinnamon…need I saw more? Now lets talk icing. I went back and forth on this. How can you make icing without powdered sugar? Now I am here to tell you, it can be done! Cream cheese, butter, honey, vanilla, orange zest…OMG! See I am becoming a teenage girl again. This stuff is soo good I am wondering what else I can put it on. Apples…toast….bananas…sure why not. I think this stuff would make tree bark taste good.
These cinnamon rolls would be an awesome Christmas morning breakfast or brunch dish!
I adapted this recipe from a great one I found on Suzie Sweet Tooth. I cleaned up the ingredients and added my own twist. Click here to check out the original! It is fantastic!!!
