Are Cinnabon™ Cinnamon Rolls gluten free?
No fast food place has gluten free cinnamon rolls. McDonald's Cafe™ cinnamon rolls are not gluten free. Cinnabon™ rolls are not celiac friendly and they are also not keto friendly, either. This is a healthy recipe for a wheat-free cinnamon roll that tastes like just a store-bought one with no wheat and no sugar!
What is the difference between a homemade cinnamon roll and a Pillsbury™ cinnamon roll?
Pillsbury™ cinnamon rolls are high in carbohydrates and sugar, so they’re not as healthy as making your own at home. In our healthy cinnamon roll recipe, we use sugar free honey instead of sugar to sweeten. We also find that homemade cinnamon rolls have a better texture and flavor than anything that comes in a can! Plus, you can customize your breakfast rolls by adding fruit, nuts, or even sugar free whipped cream.

Can you make cinnamon rolls with Carbquik?
You can, but these homemade cinnamon rolls won't need yeast. This means they will rise and be gluten-free. Carbquik cinnamon rolls are an option, but they require the dough to rise, which takes extra time and will add gluten. The nice thing about our gluten free cinnamon rolls is that they don’t need yeast.
Can you freeze cinnamon rolls?
You can freeze our cinnamon rolls to store them. Do not refrigerate them as it will ruin their texture. Cinnamon rolls should be served warm so make sure to defrost them and heat them up after.
