Cinnamon Roll Coffee Cake ~ Gluten & Dairy Free!

The smell of hot cinnamon rolls right out of the oven…..what could be a better way to start the day?! Except for the fact that cinnamon rolls are 1. made with yeast 2. full of gluten and dairy and 3. time consuming (and a pain in the butt LOL!) to make. The quick, easy and delicious fix!?! Cinnamon roll coffee cake!! Who would have thought! It’s super easy to make….. AND its gluten, dairy and yeast free!!! The top gets kind of flaky and its so light and cinnamony!  YUM doesn’t even begin to describe how awesome this cake is! It definitely beats ordinary cinnamon rolls! If there’s any leftover (haha yeah right!!), its just as good cold! This is one that I’ll be making often!! I thought I missed cinnamon rolls…. but now I really know what i was missing! Hope you’ll give it a shot! Enjoy! 🙂
