Homemade Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls

Whether you’re looking for ways to fulfill your sweet tooth cravings, making a special breakfast, or simply want to make your kitchen smell divinely delicious . . . (kinda like walking by Cinnabon — only gluten free!) this is the recipe is for you! 🙂


1 box Gluten Free Pizza Crust Mix (I used Aldi’s LiveGfree)
1 teaspoon Yeast
2 Large Eggs
8 tablespoons Butter, divided in half
½ cup warm water
¾ cup Sugar
1 tablespoon Cinnamon
½ teaspoon Vanilla

1 cup Powdered Sugar
2 Tablespoons water
1 teaspoon Vanilla


  1. Preheat oven to 400° and butter a 13″ x 9″ baking dish.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, mix your pizza crust mix, eggs, yeast, 4 tablespoons of softened butter, warm water and ¼ cup sugar. Let rise for 10 minutes covered with a dish towel.
  3. While your dough is rising . . . mix your sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla. Put your glaze together in a 2-cup Pyrex measure.
  4. Roll the dough out on wax paper, shaping it into a rectangle of about a ¼-inch thickness. Spread with 4 tablespoons of melted butter. Sprinkle your cinnamon/ sugar/ vanilla mixture onto the surface of the dough.
  5. Roll the dough up over the filling tightly and slice into 12 equal pieces. Place in your buttered pan. Allow the rolls to rise at room temperature for 20 minutes.
  6. Bake for 12 minutes covered with foil. Remove the foil and bake 10 additional minutes until golden brown. Allow to cool for a few minutes and drizzle your glaze on the warm rolls. Serve immediately.

This recipe delivered the most incredible gluten free cinnamon roll I have ever had. Going past bakeries can be a huge downer when living a gluten free lifestyle. Making these at home completely eliminates any pain I’ve ever felt when passing by Cinnabon empty-handed. Super delicious!


Hope y’all have had a wonderful Saturday!!
