Microwave Cinnamon Rolls — 12 Days of Allergy-Free Christmas Recipes Day One

Day 1 of 12 Days of Allergy-Free Christmas Recipes

Hello and welcome to Day One of the 12 Days of Allergy-Free Christmas Recipes. I am your host, Madison at Eating 4 Balance, and boy have we got a show for you today!

The theme for Day One is breakfast pastries, a very fitting way to begin this round-up as breakfast will be the very first thing you eat come Christmas day.

As part of this post I have collected dozens of breakfast pastry recipes which I will share shortly. Before we do that though, I have created a “new” special recipe to share as well which I am confident you are going to love.

Whether you have food allergies, a special diet, or are just trying to eat healthier, it can be frustrating to come across an amazing looking recipe and then see the serving size. Especially if you are the only one in your family eating a certain way, a recipe with multiple servings is just too much. First, do we really want to still be eating the leftovers come the next week? Of course not! And if it’s a dessert recipe, having multiple servings can be very tempting and if you’re anything like me you can’t just stop at one or two.

So this recipe, no matter which category you fall into, is perfect. It only makes two, and is so quick to whip up that if you need a tasty allergy-free treat on Christmas morning but don’t want the prep time or hassle, you can make these microwave cinnamon rolls.

Microwave Cinnamon Rolls (Paleo and Vegan)

Microwave Cinnamon Rolls

Grain/Gluten/Wheat-Free, Vegan, Nut-Free, Paleo/GAPS-Friendly

Makes two large servings

Dough Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup ground flaxseed + 1/4 cup water
  • 1 small ripe banana
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • dash of salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda

Filling Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1-2 tsp cinnamon

Directions:

  1. Combine the flaxseed and water in a bowl until thickened. Mash in the ripe banana and then add in the remaining ingredients. Mix well until you have a thick dough.
  2. Using your hands, press out the dough onto a piece of parchment paper by hand to the size of a long, but thin rectangle.
  3. Mix together the coconut oil and honey for the filling and spread evenly over the dough. Sprinkle on the cinnamon.
  4. Next roll up the dough so that you are left with a log about 4 or 5 inches wide. Slice into two halves.
  5. Place one of the halves on a plate lined with parchment paper and pop it into the microwave. Cook for about 3 minutes on high (you will have to experiment with this as all microwaves cook differently). When done it should spring back to the touch but still be somewhat soft.
  6. Repeat with the other half. Enjoy your quick and allergy-free cinnamon rolls!

Notes: If you prefer to not cook things in the microwave, you can also bake these for about 15-20 at 350 degrees. I adapted this recipe from my oven one which you can look at here.

Microwave Cinnamon Rolls (Paleo and Vegan)

Usually I stay away from anything that isn’t meat or a vegetable because my stomach starts acting up, but I made an exception for these cinnamon rolls and hate half. Delicious.

If those don’t appeal to you though, don’t worry because I have many other recipes that you will be interested. Actually, it’s almost impossible that you won’t find a recipe that you can make among the ones I am about to share.

12 Days of Allergy-Free Christmas Day One: Breakfast Pastries

We have basically ever breakfast pastry under the Sun here. Scones, donuts, bagels, biscotti, cinnamon rolls, and much more. I have separated all of the recipes into categories with the links underneath the respective pictures. To make it easier for you, I have also included the food allergy profile next to each link so you can see if it will fit with your diet.

Those recipes that have an asterisk (*) by tree nut or soy free is to denote that the recipe calls for an ingredient that can easily be switched for those who cannot have it. For example, if a recipe calls for almond milk and that is the only tree nut in the recipe, I will put an asterisk by tree nut because you can easily use a different milk substitute with similar results.

While I tried very hard to make sure that I included the correct allergens and that the links are all functioning, please let me know if I have missed something. Enjoy!

  1. I love this huge list of recipes! Breakfast pastries are definitly one of my favorite things to eat and make. Also, they’re so much fun to make for others. I’m loving how that cinnamon roll is microwaveable.. I definitely see eating that for breakfast sometime soon!

  2. Oh my gosh Madison! I don’t know what to say. This is darn fabulous! These cinnamon rolls sound so awesome I want to have them NOW! Okay maybe I can wait till tomorrow morning. If I manage to practice a lot of patience. You raised the bar definitely girl!

  3. I love single-lady recipes!!! It’s especially nice when all you want is one roll or one slice of whatever and don’t have enough ingredients to make a huge batch, but do have enough of the ingredients for a serving. I love your link-up party going on here. <3

  4. And now I want a doughnut… or a scone… or a cinnamon roll. Gah! So much deliciousness. I just finished breakfast and I still wouldn’t mind following it up with one of these.

    What I eat on Christmas morning usually depends on where I am. If I’m at home, then I’ll just grab my normal oats and prep for a brunch later, but if I’m at my parents’ place then it’s pancakes all the way. My mom makes the most amazing ones, and I’ll never turn down the opportunity to grab a couple stacks.

    Thanks for including me in the roundup <3

  5. I’ve just bookmarked this post. I have no idea what I want to try first, but this post has me drooling like there’s no tomorrow! Any recommendations on where to start? :)
