Gluten-free Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls

Gluten-free Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls

Recipe by Gluten Free Baking By Rachelle (Rachelle Himmelman)

I love this time of the year, the leaves are changing, the air is getting colder and the pumpkins are plentiful. So I ask myself what shall I do with my homemade pumpkin puree, yes I got it!! Cinnamon rolls, my family absolutely loves cinnamon rolls of any kind. I developed this recipe in the non-traditional way by using a flavored coconut milk and the pumpkin puree you get all the great tastes of fall but in a healthier way. So there you have it a very delicious Gluten-free Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Roll with a creamy spicey frosting. Yummy!!
