Cinnamon rolls are such a tasty treat and they’re perfect for autumn. To make these cinnamon roll bites even more of a fall time treat, I made a pumpkin version! These mini pumpkin cinnamon roll bites are gluten free, dairy free, and refined sugar free. You can even make them sugar free if you want to! Plus, they’re super easy to make, it literally takes about 10 minutes!

What ingredients will I need for these pumpkin cinnamon rolls bites?

You’re going to need just a couple simple ingredients for this recipe. I’ll bet you have most of them (if not all) in your pantry and fridge right now! Here are the ingredients you’ll need:

  • oat flour
  • salt
  • baking powder
  • cinnamon
  • coconut sugar, monk fruit or vanilla protein powder
  • pumpkin purée
  • coconut butter or yogurt (I use dairy free yogurt)
  • coconut oil (or vegan butter)
How do I make this recipe nut free?

To keep this recipe nut free, use a granulated sweetener like monk fruit or date sugar instead of the coconut sugar (or use vanilla protein powder). You’ll also want to use butter (regular or vegan butter) instead of the coconut oil. Lastly, be sure to use yogurt (regular or dairy free) instead of coconut butter for the frosting!

How do I make these pumpkin cinnamon roll bites sugar free?

To keep the recipe sugar free, simply use a sugar free granulated sweetener in the place of the coconut sugar (like monk fruit) or use vanilla protein powder instead (see below).

What kind of protein powder do you recommend?

I recommend using Truvani’s Vanilla Protein Powder. It’s organic, plant based, and really, really good! Plus, it’s made with only 5 real ingredients (no artificial ingredients whatsoever!).

Help, I don’t have oat flour!

No oat flour? No problem. You can easily make your own at home! To make homemade oat flour simply blend rolled/old fashioned oats in a high speed blender (or process in a food processor). Blend/process until a flour consistency is reached! If you want to watch a very quick tutorial, check out this video.

Where do I find dairy free yogurt?

You can find dairy free yogurt in almost any grocery store. My favorite kind at the moment is Forager Project unsweetened cashew milk yogurt.

I don’t want to use the microwave…

If you don’t have a microwave or don’t prefer to use one you can simply bake these mini cinnamon roll bites at 350° for 10-15 minutes.

Mini Pumpkin Cinnamon Roll Bites

Servings 1
Prep Time 8 mins
Cook Time 2 mins

Ingredients

For the Cinnamon Roll

  • 1/2 cup oat flour
  • 1/4 cup pure pumpkin purée
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar (or monk fruit or vanilla protein powder)
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt

For the Cinnamon Sugar Filling

  • 1 1/2 tsp coconut oil, softened
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar

For the Icing

  • 2 tbsp plain yogurt (or 1 tbsp coconut butter, melted)
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar (or monk fruit or vanilla protein powder)

Instructions

  • Mix together the cinnamon roll ingredients in a small dish. The dough should shape into a ball. If it’s too dry, add more pumpkin purée. If it’s too wet and sticky, add more oat flour.
  • Lightly grease the counter with coconut oil or cooking spray and place your dough ball onto the greased counter. Greasing the counter helps it to roll up nicely (see step 5).
  • Roll out/flatten the dough with a rolling pin or with your fingers until you have a small rectangular shape.
  • Lightly spread/brush the softened coconut oil over the dough and then sprinkle with cinnamon and coconut sugar.
  • Using your fingers, gently roll up the dough (rolling up the long side of the dough). I like to slide a butter knife all the way under the dough before rolling it up to "unstick" it from the counter.
  • Slice the rolled dough into 6 small rounds using a sharp knife (or try using floss to slice it – it works so well!).
  • Place the cinnamon roll bites in a greased microwave safe glass dish and microwave the cinnamon roll bites for 2 minutes (see below for baking instructions).
  • While the cinnamon roll bites are cooking, mix together the icing ingredients in a small dish. If the icing is too thick, add a bit of water or dairy free milk to thin it out.
  • After 2 minutes, remove the cinnamon roll bites from the microwave and drizzle them with icing. Enjoy immediately!

Notes

  • If you don’t want to use the microwave you can bake the cinnamon roll bites at 350° for 10-15 minutes.
  • Feel free to mix a little pumpkin puree into the icing to make a pumpkin flavored icing!
