Banana Cinnamon Roll Buns – Flour free Recipe

Banana Cinnamon Roll Buns Recipe

These easy to make cinnamon roll buns are just made of fruit and spices. I first had these at the Woodstock fruit festival where they made a raw banana cinnamon bun.

For this healthy cinnamon rolls recipe you can either bake in the oven or if you have a dehydrator make the raw version. The raw version does take 6 times longer to make.

They are a great high energy snack to have either before or after exercise. It’s best to make 8-10 of these at a time so you fill up the oven.

No flour or any grains are used in this recipe as the banana alone makes up the dough part. This means they are suitable for people following a gluten free, paleo and fruitarian diet. Of course they are plant based and vegan like all of our recipes.

Yield: single cinnamon bun

  1. You should edit your directions. No where does it mention when or how to add the cinnamon to the recipe. I had to watch the video to see when it gets used.

    1. Thanks for that – I don’t have a proofreader so very much welcome corrections. There was a typo and I said to sprinkle on the vanilla rather than cinnamon. All corrected now, happy baking 🙂
