We’re Baaaaaaaaack!

We’ve been on hiatus and SO much has happened!

Grandma had a birthday. We made carrot cake. It was really really good.

Caed had a great time being the center of attention. Grampy makes lots of funny faces.

Caed learned to roll from his back to his stomach and immediately preferred to sleep that way. It scared me for a bit and I began checking on him in the night like we had just brought him home. Evan kept telling me “Let’s see what squirt can do.” He did just fine. 🙂

We participated in the March of Dimes in Boston. Caed was awake the whole time!

Oh, and Caedmon was baptized. It was a great day, perfect weather, and filled with lots of love. However, I’ll save those pictures for another post.

Today we’re headed to the Roger Williams Park Zoo in Providence, RI.  There’s going to be a lot of walking, so we revved up with some frosted cinnamon rolls. What a great way to start the weekend. A great way to start yours too!

The Paleo Cinnamon Roll

Makes 2 personal rolls

  • 6 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • pinch or two of sea salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tbsp almond or coconut milk
  • 2 tbsp local honey
  • dried fruit of any kind

Frosting

  • 1 tbsp unsalted Kerrygold butter
  • 1tbsp unrefined coconut oil *the one that sill tastes like coconut
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Preheat the oven to 375°

Add all the ingredients for the rolls, except the dried fruit, to a bowl and mix well.

Make sure all the lumps are gone.

Let the mixture stand for a few minutes to thicken. In the mean time prepare the frosting.

Soften the butter and coconut oil in the microwave, do not let it melt, 5-10 seconds.

Remove from microwave and add the maple syrup, vanilla, and cinnamon.

Wisk together and place in fridge to harden up a bit.

Next split the batter into two and roll out on a cookie sheet covered in parchment paper.

Sprinkle your dried fruit of choice down the center and add another sprinkle or two of cinnamon.

Carefully roll them up. You may have to press the dough together with your fingers as you’re rolling it up.

Place into the oven and bake for 20 minutes.

When they’re done, pull them out, ice them with your frosting, and enjoy!
