Besides an explosion of colorful leaves, cooler days and darker nights, cute boots and sweaters coming out to play once more, and all things pumpkin, fall time is also about cozy mornings spent with a warm mug of tea (or cold-pressed coffee), and a (raw) pastry. This cinnamon roll recipe by Iselin Stoylen of Vegetarian Taste is really very easy to make and doesn’t even require a dehydrator. They turn out gooey, cinnamon-ey and delicious and don’t have a stitch of sugar or gluten in them. Enjoy!

Ingredients

Dough:

  • 2 cups/ 4 dl sprouted, raw oats (you can also use almonds or regular
  • rolled oats.. Depending on your preferations and tastebuds)

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt

    Cinnamon Filling:
  • 20 soft, pitted dates
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • pinch of salt
  • 3 tbsp water

Instructions
