AIP Cinnamon Rolls
This morning I made a delicious set of cinnamon rolls. I normally don't bake that much these days as sugar isn't so hot on the body😜 but thought today was a special occasion!🌲

This recipe is from @healmedelicious with a little edits of my own. I ended up adding in about 1/4-1/2 cup of chopped walnuts (using my little Ninja blender) to the filling and a little extra cinnamon.

I didn't know too much about white sweet potatoes before today but they are an excellent source of B2, B6, C and E as well as fiber, potassium, copper, manganese, and iron. They are less sweet than orange sweet potatoes which for me I like.



* 1/4 cup + 1 tsp coconut oil, melted
* 2 tbsp cinnamon
* 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
* 1/2 tsp sea salt
* 1/4 cup + 3 tbsp coconut sugar
* 1/4-1/2 cup chopped walnuts


* 2 cups white sweet potato boiled and mashed (for me this was about 2 1/2 large sweet potatoes). I didn't peal mine and it turned out great but if you want to peel them go for it!
* 2/3 cup cassava flour
* 1/2 tsp sea salt

-Preheat oven 375F
-Combine filling ingredients in a bowl
-Combine crust ingredients in a bowl. For this crust/dough you want a soft pliable texture.
-Between 2 pieces of parchment paper, roll out dough to be about 8 1/2 by 11 and no less than 1/4 inch thick.
-Put the delicious filling in 2/3 of the crust.
-Fold top part in and then fold bottom part to meet in the middle.
-You can then cut these in slices (see my pic) and the original awesome recipe had some great instructions to actually make these into rolls but I said screw it, let's keep em easy.
-I greased the glass 13x9 with some melted coconut oil and put in the slices for about 35 minutes with checking in a few times.

This was an awesome recipe that I can't wait to make again and play with!
