Cinnamon Roll:

1 1/4 cup oat flour ( I used this brand here)
1 cup vanilla greek yogurt*
2 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp Apple cider vinegar

Cinnamon sugar mixture:
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1 tsp cinnamon


  1. Mix all of the cinnamon ingredients together and let it chill 30 minutes.
  2. Then put parchment paper on a flat surface
  3. Add extra oat flour to make sure the dough doesn’t stick.
  4. Roll out the dough, about 1/4 inch thick. I used a rolling pin but I greased it first so the dough didn’t stick. Meaning I just sprayed a little non stick spray on it.
  5. Try to roll it into a rectangle as much as possible!
  6. Then in a small bowl mix the cinnamon sugar mixture
  7. Sprinkle the mixture on the dough, leaving a little room on the edges.
  8. Slice the dough longways into about 5 slices
  9. Then roll them into cinnamon rolls
