S’mores Cinnamon Rolls

What you label wheat flour in a half-GF household:

And I think I got gluten/dairy/egg contaminated at La Fogata in Thornton. No more Mexican food after going to Costco. Detox tea to the rescue! This is one of my top ten favourite posts, no joke.

S’mores for breakfast? Duh!

I made these s’mores cinnamon rolls after having made s’mores bars recently and having leftover marshmallows after camping at the Great Sand Dunes (again).

The recipe is much the same as these chai cinnamon rolls from 2014, except these are high-altitude and non-commercial GF flour mix.

Lookit that rise. Go, sourdough, go!

I put a basic glaze (powdered sugar + hot water) on top since I still wanted to be able to eat these for breakfast.

The peculiar brown colour of these is not from teff, as one might suspect, but from red cargo rice (BTW, I added sources to that article. I think I would be a bad internet citizen if I left that minor edit out to dry). I ran out of brown rice flour but had a glut of red rice. I used my Vitamix to whiz up some red rice flour.

  1. 1 cup GF sourdough starter, fed or unfed
  2. 2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
  3. 1 tablespoon organic sugar
  4. 1/4 cup warm water
  5. 1 cup nondairy milk
  6. 3 tablespoons vegan margarine
  7. 3/4 cup brown rice flour
  8. 1/4 cup coconut flour
  9. 1 cup red rice flour
  10. 1 cup sticky rice flour
  11. 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
  12. 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  13. Dash cinnamon
  14. Dash cardamom
  15. 1/4 cup white rice flour (for rolling) or a bit of oil
  1. 1/4 cup chocolate syrup
  2. 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  3. 2-3 tablespoons margarine, melted
  4. Dash cinnamon
  5. 3/4 cup pecan bits
  6. 1 cup chopped marshmallow bits
  7. 2 tablespoons vegan margarine, melted, for brushing shaped rolls
  1. 1/2 cup organic powdered sugar
  2. 2-3 tablespoons hot water
For the dough
  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, warm up the nondairy milk until small bubbles appear around the edges.
  2. Remove nondairy milk from heat and stir in the margarine to melt.
  3. Proof the yeast in the 1/4 cup warm water with the tablespoon of sugar.
  4. In a large bowl, sift then whisk together all the flours, xanthan gum, salt, and spices.
  5. In a large measuring cup, combine the starter, proofed yeast, and magarine mixture and whisk together.
  6. Add wet to dry and mix well, kneading for a few minutes.
  7. Turn the dough into an oiled mixing bowl and let rise for 2 hours, covered with a damp towel in a warm place.
For the innards
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the melted margarine, cocoa, cinnamon, and chocolate syrup.
  2. Grease a 9*13-inch baking pan and set aside.
  3. When the dough is done rising, take half of it and roll it out on an oiled or dusted with rice flour piece of parchment to 1/3-inch thickness.
  4. Spread half the chocolate syrup mixture on the dough and sprinkle half of the nuts and marshies on top.
  5. Roll up the dough and slice into rounds (about six) and arrange in the prepared baking pan.
  6. Repeat with the rest of the dough.
  7. Let shaped dough rise, covered, for another half an hour.
  8. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  9. Brush the shaped rolls with the rest of the melted margarine.
  10. After their 30-minute rise, bake the rolls for 30-35 minutes or until they are brown on top and spring back to the touch.
For the glaze
  1. In a small measuring cup, whisk together the powdered sugar and water until desired consistency is reached.
  2. Drizzle glaze atop the warm cinnamon rolls.
  3. Devour!
  1. If the dough seems dry in the initial formation, stir in up to 1/2 cup warm water.
  2. I used Ah!Laska organic chocolate syrup because the conventional stuff is usually not vegan.
