Gooey Cinnamon Buns
|Almond meal||1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs)|
|Ground flax seed||1 Cup (16 tbs)|
|Soft pitted dates||1 1⁄4 Cup (20 tbs)|
|Water||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Softened coconut oil||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Raisins||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Chopped pecans||1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)|
|Coconut butter||1 Tablespoon|
Fold the almond meal, ground flax seed, 1 Tbsp. cinnamon, pinch sea salt, and pinch of vanilla in a bowl. Set aside.
Process dates, 1/2 of the raisins, water and vanilla into a paste in a food processor. Then remove half of that paste mixture and add it to the dry ingredients, along with the coconut oil.
Mix these ingredients with your hands until it forms a dough. You may need to add a little water or oil if it is too dry.
Spread the dough out on a piece of parchment paper, and shape it into a 1/4-inch thick rectangle.
Take the rest of the date paste left in your food processor add the remaining raisins, 1 Tbsp. of cinnamon and coconut butter. Process until smooth. Then, spread a thin layer of the paste onto the dough.
Using the parchment paper to help hold everything together, carefully roll the dough into a log. Chill in the refrigerator, and then slice into about 1-inch thick rounds.
These cinnamon rolls can be eaten right away or warmed in a dehydrator.
