This is definitely not your average cinnamon roll! There is no gluten, no dairy, totally vegan, no grains, no flours, and made with primarily banana. I don’t know what inspired this recipe, but I’m not mad at it. This is the perfect sweet treat before or after a workout because it’s not super “heavy” so you won’t feel sluggish! Hope the recipe makes sense. Happy baking

Ingredients:

  • 3 large bananas

  • 1 cup dried apricots

  • 1/2 cup coconut milk

  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

  • 4 tbs coconut flakes

  • 2 tsp cinnamon

  • 2 tsp vanilla

Recipe:

  1. Prep the banana rolls: with the peel on, slice the bananas down the long side 3 times. If you do this right, you should have 4 long slices per banana

  2. Place each slice on a lined baking sheet and bake the slices at 350 for about 10 minutes. They should just become a little brown, but not too much so they don’t fall apart. Let them cool

  3. Make the filling: throw all the other ingredients into a food processor and blend until smooth

  4. Once the bananas are cool, carefully spoon the filling on top of each slices and gently roll them into cinnamon roll shapes. Some of the filling will come out when you roll, but most should stay inside the rolls

  5. Top with a little extra cinnamon or a pinch of sea salt. Enjoy!
