Cinnamon Buns

This is a twist of my cinnamon bun cake. I have added almond meal to the flour mix. It seems to give it a sweeter flavor and nice crumb. But, it is totally optional, and can just be omitted if you need to be nut free. You don’t need to make any other adjustments if you leave it out!

I have iced this with a cream cheese icing, which I use my homemade strawberry jam in! My jam is available for sale!

Strawberry jam, sugar free

Alternately, you can ice these with coconut cream, as I did my cake, especially if you need a dairy free version. (I also sell coconut cream in my store)!

I use 8 bun size small glass round baking dishes, ramekins, I believe they are called. I will post the regular, large recipe first, then a smaller one, which will make just 2 buns.

Cinnamon Buns

Wet Ingredients:
4 eggs
6 Tablespoons coconut oil
3 Tablespoons xylitol
3 Tablespoons Pyure
2 Tablespoons vanilla
6 Tablespoons water

Dry Ingredients:
4 Tablespoons oat fiber
4 Tablespoons coconut flour
2 Tablespoons golden flax meal
2 Tablespoons collagen
2 Tablespoons almond meal
1 1/2 teaspoons glucomannan
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon baking powder

Sprinkle:
1 Tablespoon Pyure
1 Tablespoon Xylitol
1 Tablespoon cinnamon

Instructions:
Mix wet ingredients in vitamix.
Mix dry ingredients in separate bowl. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix up the sprinkle. Spray 8 ramekins with coconut oil. Spoon a little batter into each ramekin, then sprinkle on some of the sprinkle. Repeat in uneven layers till all the batter and sprinkle are used. Bake at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes or until done. Let cool before icing, if you use the cream cheese icing. If you are icing with the coconut cream, go ahead and ice warm.

Cream cheese icing:

Ingredients:
8 ounces Neufchâtel cheese
1/2 jar Lotsa Little Lambs sugar free strawberry jam.
1/8 teaspoon THM stevia extract

Instructions:
Beat cream cheese till it is smooth. Add the jam and stevia and beat again. Spread on the cooled rolls.

You can leave the rolls in the ramekins, or remove them. I have ones with matching lids, so I can just store them right in the ramekins after baking, cooling and icing!

Cranberry Pink Drink

Cranberry Pink Drink

I set out to make a nutritional drink for a couple reasons. One simply because I like to get in at least 2 quarts of liquid or more in a day. The other happens to be my blood pressure. No matter what I do, or how well I eat, I can’t seem to get it down where it needs to be. I have tried several different herbal products and vitamins. Nothing moves it much. I am hoping this drink can be an affordable aid in lowering my blood pressure. It may not be finished, so if I add to it I will edit and add those changes. But it is SO GOOD! That even my stevia hating son and husband like it. In fact I have to either be selfish, or make a lot… because all the kids like it!

This would be a FP drink if following Trim Healthy Mama

Cranberry Pink Drink
2 lemons, juiced
4 Tablespoons 100% cranberry juice
1 teaspoon vitamin C powder
1 juniper berry capsule
1 hawthorn berry capsule
1/2 teaspoon THM stevia extract powder
2 Tablespoons liquid probiotic, berry flavored is good (I used this one)

Instructions:
Juice the lemons. Empty the herbs out of the capsules and throw the capsules away. I plan to try using the tincture later, but for now, capsules are what I have. Add all ingredients to the blender, except for the probiotic. Blend to mix in the herbs and stevia so there won’t be clumps. Then add the probiotic and stir gently. Pour into 2-1 quart jars, adding water to fill the jars. Also add ice if desired.

Warning: The probiotic contains a warning on the jar. Not to shake and to open slowly. I failed to open slowly… and half my jar quickly escaped! 😢 I don’t want you to make the same mistake!

When traveling, I just shake up the ingredients in a quart jar. You can then divide it between two jars, and add water and ice and the probiotic if you have it.

This is an easy and quick drink!
