Ingredients

Dough

2 cups blanched almond flour

1 cup arrowroot starch

1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum

1/2 teaspoon  salt

1/4 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup milk

1 Tablespoon butter, melted

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon  vanilla extract

2 Tablespoons  Swerve Granular

Filling

1/4 cup butter, melted

1 Tablespoon  cinnamon

1/4 cup Brown Swerve

1 Granny Smith apple, diced

Caramel

1/3 cup butter

3 Tablespoons Brown  Swerve

2/3 cup heavy cream

1 teaspoon  vanilla extract

Instructions

Preheat  oven to 350F and grease a 10 inch skillet  or 8×8 baking dish with butter.

Mix all  dough ingredients til large ball forms, knead 3-4 times til smooth.

Lay dough on a large piece of parchment paper and cover with another piece of parchment paper and roll the dough using a rolling pin til it forms a large rectangle about 10×15 and about 1/4 inch thick.

Filling

Remove the top piece of parchment paper and brush with the 1/4 cup of butter. Sprinkle with cinnamon, Brown Swerve  and top with the apple.

Use the parchment paper to help you roll the dough into a log, starting at the widest side of the rectangle.  Once rolled, cut into 14 equal pieces and arrange in a 10 inch skillet or 8×8 baking dish.

Transfer to oven and bake 25-30 minutes until golden.

Caramel

While the rolls are baking make the caramel by combining the butter and Brown Swerve in a small pot over medium low heat. Bring to a boil and cook 2-3 minutes just until it starts to darken. Whisk in the heavy cream and vanilla,  bring back to a boil for 1 minute then reduce the heat to maintain a simmer. Simmer for 5-10 minutes until thick and glossy. Transfer to a jar.

To serve, top the cinnamon rolls with the caramel sauce.

Store refrigerated up to 5 days. To reheat simply microwave  for 15 seconds.
