Units Scale

For the dough:

  • 3 cups Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free 1 to 1 Baking Flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons instant yeast
  • 1 tablespoon whole psyllium husk (NOT powder)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons almond milk
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons cup full fat coconut milk from a can, divided

For the Filling:

  • 4 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

For the glaze:

  • 3 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3 ounces cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Add the flour, sugar, yeast, psyllium husk, and salt to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium-low until combined.
  2. Add in the milk, egg, melted butter, and 1/4 cup coconut milk. Mix until a smooth dough forms.
  3. Place the dough on a piece of floured parchment paper. Using flour as needed, roll the dough into a 1/4 inch thick rectangle, about 9x12 inches.
  4. In a small bowl, stir together the sugar and cinnamon. Spread the dough evenly with softened butter and sprinkle with the cinnamon sugar mixture.
  5. Using the edge of the parchment paper closest to you, gently roll the dough into a tight log. Cut into 9 even pieces and place in an 8x8, 9x9, or 9inch round baking dish.
  6. Cover the rolls with a clean tea towel and set in a warm place to rise for 1 hour. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  7. Drizzle the rolls with the remaining 2 tablespoons coconut milk and bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and puffed. Set aside to cool for 10 minutes.

  8. While the rolls are cooling, whisk together the glaze ingredients by hand or with an electric mixer until smooth. Pour over the rolls and enjoy!
