    These are definitely a favorite at our house for special mornings … like snow days or sleepovers or brunch with friends.  ENJOY!

    Rolls:

    2 cups almond flour  (or dried almond pulp from making almond milk)

    1 cup raisins

    1 vanilla bean, scraped

    ¼ tsp nutmeg

    2 Tbs cinnamon

    2 Tbs coconut oil

    2 Tbs agave or maple syrup

    1-3 Tbs orange juice

    Place all ingredients except orange juice in food processor & blend.  After 30 seconds, add in orange juice gradually, until mixture balls up & forms a dough.

    paste:

    1/2 cup dates

    ¼ cup water

    1 Tbs cinnamon

    Blend everything until creamy in a food processor.  You may have to scrape the sides down several times.

    Sprinkle a little almond flour on counter & roll dough out to ¼ inch thick rectangle, approximately 8×4 inches.  Spread paste on top of dough & sprinkle with more almond flour. Score into 1 – 1 1/2 inch strips & gently roll them up.  Place in dehydrator for 2-3 hours–this step is optional.

    Glaze:

    ½ cup cashews

    ½ cup water

    2 Tbs honey

    ½ vanilla bean, scraped

    Blend until smooth in high speed blender.  Top cinnamon bun with glaze & eat up or place glaze
    in dehydrator for ½ hour to warm up.
