Boo to bad lighting. Doesn’t do these justice. I wanted to make a meal that the kids could help out with and have fun doing so. We have family church night on Wednesdays so we try to do something simple and usually we end up doing breakfast. I was in the mood for something cinnamon roll like so this is what we came up with! Oh, and they are gluten free 😉 I’m also including a regular flour recipe below.
Now, one of my most favorite things ever… Pamela’s Pancake & Baking Mix. It’s gluten free and amazing. I get mine on Amazon.com and with the subscribe and save program it’s almost half the price it is in the store. Can’t beat that. I use it in any baking recipe almost as an exact exchange for regular flour. There is baking powder in the mix so if a recipe calls for that I back off it a bit.
Anyway, there is a seriously 3 ingredient simple recipe on the back of the bag for drop biscuits. That’s what I used for this recipe.
Pinch off balls of dough and roll into breadstick like pieces. Drop that into the cinnamon sugar and let the kids coat. I should have used a dish with bigger sides… oh well, not like sugar all over the kitchen floor is a sticky mess… insert sarcasm…
You’ll want to take extra time to make sure each cinnamon dipper is uniform in size and shape… like these here 🙂 Note: when you let your kids help in the kitchen… be prepared to let them help and not micromanage them. It’ll all taste the same 🙂 Toss these in the oven for a bit.
We had fruit smoothies to go along with these and sneak in some nutrition. Check out some smoothie tips by clicking here or just do whatever your family likes.
