    Question Help!! ( with my cinnamon bun)

    I'm trying to make cinnamon buns in a primal way and my batch yesterday turned on dry and not soft enough. Is there any way to make them chewy? Here is what I did... what would you change?

    1 egg
    15 drops liquid stevia
    2 T coco oil
    1/2 T xanthan gum
    1/2 t salt
    1 cup almond flour

    Mixed above and rolled out. Brushed with melted butter and sprinked with cinnamon and stevia.

    Rolled up, cut, and baked at 350F for 11 minutes.

    I don't think they'll ever be chewy like wheat flour is, but upping the oil should help. I'm assuming that's 2 teaspoons?

    buy a bag of Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free flour (or you can try potato flour & tapioca flour). You're not gonna get soft & flakey with almond flour.

    Try tapioca flour instead. Look up 'Brazilian Cheese buns'

    Thanks for the responses! I have brown rice flour and coconut flour already at home. Would those be better?

    Not sure. Coconut flour & I do NOT get along in the baking department.

    It is usually easiest for me to start with a recipe and tweek than to start one on my own. What about...Protein Cinnamon Rolls Revisited | Quest Protein Blog

    or you could try these..Gluten Free and Dairy Free Cinnamon Bun Muffins Recipe and substitute out the agave nectar for equivalent sweetening of stevia, and the grapeseed oil for coconut oil.

    I don't really know the properties of xantham gum to be able to help with your specific recipe, but maybe you could combine it with one of these? Hope it helps
