Ingredients

Dough
  • 2 cups blanched almond flour
  • 1 cup arrowroot starch 
  • ½ teaspoon xanthan gum
  • ½ teaspoon salt 
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ cup milk 
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted 
  • 1 egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons Swerve, Granular
Filling
  • ¼ cup butter, melted
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • ¼ cup Brown Swerve
  • 1 granny smith apple, diced
Caramel
  • ⅓ cup butter
  • 3 tablespoons Brown Swerve
  • ⅔ cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

Dough
  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F and grease a 10” skillet or 8x8 baking dish with butter. 
  2. In a large bowl combine all of the ingredients for the dough and mix until a large ball of dough forms, knead the dough 3-4 times until smooth.
  3. Lay a large piece of parchment down on the counter and place the dough on top. Cover with another piece of parchment and roll the dough using a rolling pin until it forms a large rectangle about 10x15 and about ¼” thick.
Filling
  1. Remove the top piece of parchment and brush with the ¼ cup butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon, brown swerve, and top with the apple.
  2. Use the parchment paper to help you roll the dough into a log, starting at the widest side of the rectangle. Once rolled, cut into 14 equal pieces and arrange in a 10” skillet or 8x8 baking dish.
  3. Transfer to oven and bake 25-30 minutes until golden.
Caramel
  1. While the rolls are baking make the caramel by combining the butter and Brown Swerve in a small pot over medium low heat. Bring to a boil and cook 2-3 minutes just until it starts to darken. Whisk in the heavy cream and vanilla, bring back to a boil for 1 minute then reduce the heat to maintain a simmer. Simmer for 5-10 minutes until thick and glossy. Transfer to a jar.
  2. To serve, top the cinnamon rolls with the caramel sauce.
  3. Store refrigerated up to 5 days. To reheat simply microwave for 15 seconds

Makes 14 servings.

Note: If dough seems too sticky or wet, add about a tablespoon of coconut flour to the dough. This will also help prevent sticking to the parchment paper.
