Paleo Cinnamon Roll Cake

CAKE_CINNAMONROLL

Paleo Cinnamon rolls aren’t the easiest thing going …  if you’ve ever tried to make them.

{I’ve had a few fails myself!}

They’re dense.  Hard to roll.  Easy to fall apart.

I still make them though, because they TASTE great… and that’s what matters, right?  Not how things LOOK?

But then I saw this recipe for a regular version of cinnamon roll cake.  I though… hmmm…  I bet I could make that Paleo?

And I did!

It was way easier than paleo cinnamon rolls and family loved it.  I think you would even SKIP the glaze sauce…  and obviously this is a special treat, because it’s pretty sugar loaded.  BUT, considering what a regular cinnamon roll would be – this is a much better option.

No, I’m not cheating on my diet, or anything for that matter!!  (I prefer the word CHOICE, vs. cheat anyway… every choice has a consequence!)  I just found another GREAT new Paleo cookbook that I had to share, because you’re definitely going to want this one too!

The layout and form remind me of Against All Grain, which should be a staple in any healthy kitchen – but with some additional great twists and creative dishes galore!

You know me, the first place I dig is for is the desserts, and snacks.  I love things to go with our healthy meals… (and this book has PLENTY of great ideas there too!)  It’s therapy to bake things I can’t have.  So far I’ve made the chives crackers for my husband (who loves some stinky-crunchy snacks!) and some SWIRL cookies for the kids… which were GONE in one day.  (I made them for soccer snacks, dessert and frozen some back for my Bible study girls as well)

Chive crackers - great with bone broth soup!

We tried out the pumpkin pancakes this weekend and they were a grand slam.  If you’ve ever attempted paleo pumpkin pancakes, you’ve probably ended up with a HUGE mess.  Not so with this recipe!  Super easy to follow – and lovely consistency as well!

Yep - Pumpkin pancakes that weren't dime sized, and actually LOOKED like the picture when they were cooked up.  Excellent!

Again, I think it was the different flour combos, similarly to Against All Grain.  I did also try some new flours – which (sadly) put Bob’s Red Mill to shame.  (Sorry Bob!)  The brand is Honeyville, and I got it off of Amazon.com.  They are finer in texture, and come in 5lb bags!!  (Thank you Lord for larger bags, because we go through a lot!)

Have an awesome week!  Love these beautiful FALL days!
