For the Dough

•    2 ½ cups blanched almond flour
•    ¼ cup coconut flour
•    ¼ teaspoon baking soda
•    ½ teaspoon sea salt
•    ¼ cup coconut oil
•    2 Tablespoons raw honey
•    2 eggs at room temp
•    1 Tablespoon vanilla
•    ¼ cup coconut sugar

For the Filling

•    ½ cup coconut sugar
•    2 Tablespoons ground cinnamon
•    2 Tablespoons coconut oil
•    ¼ cup raisins
•    ¼ cup pecans, chopped

For the Glaze

•    ¼ cup raw honey
•    ¼ cup coconut oil
•    ¼ teaspoon almond extract
•    2 teaspoons vanilla

Instructions:
1.    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a pan with coconut oil.
2.    Combine the dry dough ingredients in a medium bowl and mix to remove any lumps. Combine the wet dough ingredients in another medium bowl and mix well. Combine the wet and dry ingredients together and mix well.
3.    Cut two rectangular pieces of parchment paper and place the dough in between them. Use a rolling pin to flatten the dough evenly into a large rectangle. Remove the top piece of parchment paper.
4.    In a small bowl combine the filing ingredients. Sprinkle the filling mixture over the flattened dough, then carefully roll it up. Use a serrated knife to cut the roll into 9 pieces. Carefully place the pieces on your prepared pan.
5.    Bake for 20 minutes.
6.    In a small bowl combine the glaze ingredients. Drizzle over the cinnamon rolls. Sprinkle with chopped pecans. Enjoy!
