It has been a long standing tradition in my family to have big ooey gooey cinnamon rolls every Christmas morning. It really is the only time of year I indulge in them, as much as I love ’em. After going vegan, and then gluten-free, it seemed like I would just have to sit back and watch everyone else partake in the festivities while I cried into a bowl of granola. But not anymore…
I came across this recipe and even given my past fail at gluten-free baking, I still had to give it a try for the sake of possibly saving my Christmas morning. I did change it ever so slightly because my dough wasn’t very doughy at first, but hot dang! they actually came out pretty good! I was quite proud of my coconut glaze as well, which I kinda came up with on my own.
Because they’re gluten-free, they aren’t as soft and gooey as the cinnamon rolls I’m used to, but that’s ok, I have to live with my life choices 🙂
What are some of your holiday traditions that you’ve veganized or otherwise adapted to fit your lifestyle?
