Healthy Living/ Super Fruit Sweet Rolls

Looking for a clean, Sunday morning breakfast roll? 
Or just an any time roll?
Here you go! 
We used Brittany Angell's, of Real Sustenance recipe for Blueberry Sweet Rolls and made them Super Fruit Sweet Rolls perfect for an early Sunday morning breakfast.

      Of course these rolls are grain free and refined sugar free.

                                                                  Super Fruit Sweet Rolls
Adapted from Real Sustenance

  • 3/4 packed cup Coconut flour
  • 1/2 packed cup Tapioca starch + 1 tablespoon
  • 1/2 cup Xylitol 
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon Baking powder 
  • 1/4 teaspoon Xantham or Guar Gum
  • 1/2 cup Shortening + 2 tablespoons
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons Applesauce
  • Filling: 3/4  cup of Super Fruit Jam {from Trader Joe's}

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place a sheet of parchment into a 7 1/2 x & 7 1/2 (or close in size) square pan. Drizzle a little oil or melted butter into the bottom of the pan and sprinkle a little sugar also into the pan. Set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer (or by hand)  Mix the coconut flour, tapioca, sugar, salt, baking powder  and xanthan. Add the shortening, eggs and applesauce. The dough should become thick and hold together quite well!
  3. Lightly oil (using nonstick spray is the quickest way to do this) two big sheets of parchment paper.  Place the dough between the two sheets.  Roll the dough out into a rectangle roughly 16 inches wide by 9 inches tall.
  4. Remove top sheet of parchment and spread the 3/4 cup of jelly carefully over the surface of the dough. (Note: leave at least an inch of dough on the  top and bottom edges clean as this will make rolling it up an easier process. )
  5. Tightly roll the dough up starting from the bottom, using the parchment paper as your guide. (DO NOT try to do it without the parchment, you will fail miserably). You want to end the roll with the seam side of the rolls facing down.
  6. Sprinkle a little bit more tapioca starch over the rolled up surface. (This will help keep it firm and holding together while you cut).
  7. Using
  8.  a piece of dental floss slice each roll 1 1/2- 2 inches wide and carefully place into the pan. (Note* This dough is a little tender and if you find the rolls falling apart a little add a little more starch to coat them and feel free to use the parchment to help gently reform them back together. The parchment will be your best friend!)
  9. Cover the pan of sweet rolls with a sheet of tinfoil and bake for 50 minutes- 1 hour.  Remove the tinfoil for the last 5-10 minutes of baking.
  10. Allow the rolls the cool for a bit before removing them from the pan, otherwise they may crumble on you!

These are tasty little rolls and one is likely to fill you up.
Feel free to use up some of those Summer berries you may have put up. What a yummy treat that would be! Do you have a favorite cup of tea or coffee you can see yourself enjoying these with? 

Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.
