Cinnamon Date Rolls (Paleo Vegan GF)

Let’s talk about dates. No, not the kind you got from swiping-right (💔)...the fruit kind! Dates are super packed with potassium - 50% more than bananas to be exact (someone coulda told potassium deficient Mitch from Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves) and offer the perfect amount of sweet and soft + natural caramelly goodness.

 

 

We combined some squishyyy Medjool dates with our Superfood mushroom blend to make these Raw Cinnamon Date Rolls (Vegan, GF, Paleo). 😍 All you need are your fave Mālama extract blend plus some big booty medjool dates, almonds and/or walnuts and pecans, vanilla, cinnamon, salt, parchment paper, and a rolling pin. Oh, and a food processor and freezer.

We added a last minute vegan-coconut icing because well, aesthetic but also for #yummms. I’ll tell ya, they give grandmas cinnamon rolls a run for her money! No offense, NaNa 👵🏽 

 

Ingredients with measurements:

  • 1 1/2 cups almonds or pecans
  • 1/2 cup walnuts or pecans
  • 1 1/2 cup pitted medjool dates
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon water (optional)
  • 3 tablespoons cinnamon
  • Mālama Extract Mix of choice (we used our Four Mushroom Superfood blend!)

 Instructions

  • Add almonds and walnuts to the food processor and pulse until nuts are about the size of peas.
  • Add in the dates, vanilla and salt and run on high until the dough forms into a large ball. If needed, add 1 tablespoon of water and pulse until it comes together.
  • Take half of the mixture out of the food processor and press into 1 even layer about 1/4 inch thick on parchment paper. If it's muy sticky, put another piece of parchment paper on top and roll out with a rolling pin.
  • Add cinnamon to the other half and pulse until combined.
  • Take the cinnamon dough and press evenly on top of the first layer. Then starting at one end, tightly roll up the dough and situate seam side down.
  • Wrap the roll in parchment paper and place in the freezer for at least 1 hour. Slice into 1/2 inch thick slices and eat whenever you need a feel-good sweet treat with mucho potassium, ayyyy.
