Updated: Apr 12, 2021

The perfect mini cinnamon rolls don’t exi... oh wait, yes they do. These mini cinnamon rolls are the perfect, protein packed single serve treat. This recipe features one of my favorite nut butters by Abby’s Better: cinnamon roll infused protein almond butter. It is a game changer for this recipe, but it also makes it so simple! These little rolls are packed with some of my favorite dairy free and gluten free swaps, such as gluten free flour, vegan butter, coconut sugar, and unsweetened nut milk. They do not require many ingredients, and are no yeast rolls. They're gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free, along with delicious and more nutrient dense. You’re gonna love them, I promise!
