Cinnamon Roll Casserole Dairy Free, Gluten Free

GLuten free and dairy free cinnamon roll cast iron bake.

Gluten Free Breakfast Treat

I am always looking for a good breakfast treat, that is somewhat healthy. I feel like so many of the special breakfast items are just full of sugar. Like, packed full.

I love cinamon rolls and pull apart bread. Those from scratch were definitely a part of my childhood. However, I really don’t want to spend Christmas morning, or the day before making a ton of baked goods. A cinnamon roll “bake“ does make the whoel processes a lot more simple. This bread is full of flavor, but the sweetness level is much lower than typical cinnamon rolls.

Cinnamon breakfast bake that is perfect for Christmas morning. It is gluten free and dairy free.

Christmas morning is one of the best mornings of the year. I can’t really put my finger on why… maybe it is the magic my kids seem to see or maybe it is just the joy of celebrating God’s greatest gift to us. Either way, I could get weepy just writing about it. I wanted to create something that felt special for us to have on Christmas morning, but that wasn’t totally unhealthy.

Whipping up the dough and the glaze are pretty easy to do before the kiddos wake up in the morning. Then it can bake while we open presents, and the whole house smells incredible.

This recipe is: gluten free, dairy free, and Paleo.
