Gluten Free Vegan Cinnamon Buns (xanthan free, egg free, dairy free, soy free, refined sugar free)

2011 October 27

ohhhhh YES!!!

When it comes to baking without allergens or for special diets, there are a few Holy Grails. One of them is a decent, luxurious cinnamon bun.

I love these.  They are terrific.  Light, fluffy, a bit decadent, and no fake ingredients.  No strong grassy or tinny flavours from bean or heavy GF flours.  No wierd texture.  Just soft, cakey decadence.  Now, if you’ve been following my FB page, you’ll know I’ve been promising these puppies for a long, loooooong time.

Today,  I made myself get up at 5 am to get them done before work, it was the only way to pull it off.  (Sometimes life gets a little  crazy.  Work, family, and starting second businesses like this one)

Anyhow, they are finally here. In all their fluffy cinnamon glory.  *happydance* :)

Note:  It may seem odd to put salt in the filling, but half the reason why butter is so ‘good’ in recipes is the salt!  When you remove butter, add some salt.  Salt balances out sweet flavours and changes the effect on your tongue.  Try it- you’ll be surprised!
