I always have had a big fat weakness for baked goods. Bread, cakes, scones, Belgium waffles, brownies, cinnamon rolls, cookies, etc. the list goes on and on!
I realized years ago that I must be gluten/wheat/casein (dairy protein) free if I wanted to live. This really put a wrench in my bakery shenanigans. Well, I solved THAT problem by opening my own bakery! Azna Gluten Free was the name of my spot up in Cameron Park, California. My products ranked in the top 10 of Whole Foods’ favorite items three years in a row. My baking is a mix of science, woo-woo, art, energy, passion, and a labor of love.
One of my most popular treats was my gluten-free cinnamon rolls, which I’m sharing with you below.

For the Schmear
Gently cream together with fork:
Gluten-Free cinnamon rolls do not need to be complicated. Just make sure you have a balance of protein, fat, and fiber to keep it all together. Your base flour can be one or all of the following:
STRATEGIC STARCH BLEND 25%
Tapioca Starch Corn Starch
BASE FLOUR 50%:
Rice Flour Almond Flour
Any combination of preferred rice flour and or grain.
PLANT-BASED PROTEIN 10%:
Beans and or Legumes
FAT & OIL 15%: (Added in Layers)
Flax Meal (optional)
Kerry Gold Butter
The Cin-Dough needs a certain amount of wet ingredients to maintain a proper moisture level to not only come together but for a soft texture. You can actually soak grains and blend into a fine paste using your BlendTec and use less or little wet and flour! Adding the soaked grains to the creamed mixture and then adding STRATEGIC STARCH#1A
In 20 or 30 qt bowl, cream cold butter and sugars together, add vanilla. Add Soaked grain paste and Strategic Starch #1B, blend until mixture resembles dough. Add in house small amounts of cold house wet and oil, mix for 2 min minimum. Scale dough and form in a rectangular shape. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate. Dough must be cold to roll.
ROLL DOUGH: 6 lb bricks roll to about the size of a full sheet pan, apply *Smear
NOTE: Paying attention to the dough is critical for this process. You can add or delete items as you see fit to bring this unique dough together.
