First things first-
I hope all you awesome people have entered my first EVER giveaway on South Beach Primal ( GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED ), which marks the release of the new 21 Day Sugar Detox book by Diane Sanfilippo. One of you will be winning a brand-spanking-new copy of the book, which I’m sure will keep you motivated to get through these sugar-riddled Holidays coming up. I reviewed the book (with tons of sugar-free, Paleo recipes) here .
Secondly, I made a video on Instagram yesterday for my giveaway, which totally made me late for work and start my morning off with a few fistfuls of candy corns. You know, as video “props” ::wink::
I really gotta start fixing up my YouTube page more. As of right now I think the only people who ever watch my videos (specifically my Cold Shower video) are the kitchen guys from work. Thanks for blabbing, Jason. #Awkward
I’m really excited about these new Pumpkin Butter Cinnamon Rolls. I’ve had to tweak this recipe a lot until I got it right. Usually I’m impatient and can’t stand making a bad batch of anything, so if I screw it up the first two times then I give up and move on to something I can eat , damnit. But I could see how much potential this recipe had, PLUS I kinda promised you all on IG that I had finally mastered the Paleo Cinnamon Roll. Now I tolerate dairy in moderation and of course I LOVE cream cheese, so I chose to use a pumpkin cream cheese icing. However, below I left instructions on how to make this icing Paleo- so chill the hell out!
Confession, and rightly so: I’ve been stalking A Girl Worth Saving HARD on both her website and IG page. Kelly is a Paleo genius, and I love her kick ass recipes and gorgeous photos. So I gotta give credit where credit is due, and say these Pumpkin Butter Cinnamon Rolls are derived from her Paleo Cinnamon Rolls recipe . I tweaked the base of the rolls to make a texture I preferred and used her method of making them. She was ON POINT with her idea of using a whole cup of tapioca starch to mimic the springiness of bread. (Didn’t I say she was a Paleo genius?)
If you don’t know what pumpkin butter is, then you really don’t know what you’re missing. You might be able to find jars of this liquid gold in specialty shops (I got mine at my local health food store), OR you can make your own Paleo Pumpkin Butter (free of refined sugar) by following this recipe from Paleo Parents. I hope you guys like these as much as I do!
