Cinnamon Raisin Rolled Biscuits (Almond Flour)

I had my doubts about these,  but in the end they turned out great!  Check it out... of course there's a little tweaking from my recipe compared to the source....I just can't leave a recipe alone.

There's just enough difference between these and regular cinnamon rolls to not 'just' label them rolls. Hence the long name.


Cinnamon Raisin Rolled Biscuits (Almond Flour)

3 cups almond flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
2 Tbsp honey
2 room temperature eggs

1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Combine the almond flour, salt and soda.  In a small bowl mix the coconut oil, honey and eggs. *You want them to be room temp so they don't harden the oil.  Add this to the flour mixture and mix well until a nice 'dough' forms.  This is stickier than 'normal' dough.  Sprinkle your surface with a little almond flour before rolling out the dough.  Then roll to a 9x13 size or so.  Next sprinkle on a layer of sugar and cinnamon.  Put a layer of raisins.  You pick how many you like.  Then roll it up!  Cut into slices, between 1 and 1 1/2 inches apart.  Bake at 350 for 12-16 minutes.  Watch them, as ovens may cook differently.  You'd rather they look a little 'under' done instead of over done.  Eat them as is, or make an icing to drizzle over the top.

*She lists a different inside mixture.  Just because I'm gluten and dairy free doesn't mean I don't want to use regular sugar sometimes!  So I changed it, and it was wonderful! :)

Here's the icing we made.
1 Tbsp coconut oil (or like substance) softened
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 cup powdered sugar
2 Tbsp water (or milk substitute)

Place the coconut oil and vanilla in a bowl.  Add in the powdered sugar and water every, other blending in between.  If it's too thick you can add more water or almond milk to make it more of a runny icing instead of a thick icing.
