YUM! X 2

Do you remember my first YUM! post? Well this one might just be even better!
My favourite food to get when I was with friends at the shops was a glazed cinnamon donut :) It was yummy! Now, being sugar free, dairy free and mostly wheat free, I don't think I would enjoy those donuts as much anymore :( But have no fear! Creativity is here!
Presenting.... Drum roll please.....
Glazed Pumpkin Cinnamon Scrolls!
( sugar, dairy, wheat, soy free and vegan! Did I mention out-of-this-world delicious!?!)
And that was my breakfast. ;)
Pumpkin scrolls:
130g pumpkin, chopped
chia gel- 1 tablespoon chia seeds mixed with 1 1/2 tablespoons milk of choice
45g wholemeal spelt flour
 10g coconut flour
10g rolled oats (chew factor)
10g oat bran (non-chew factor:)
optional- LSA mix
1- 2 teaspoons milk of choice ( I used oat milk) plus extra to brush on
1 banana, sliced
any leftover pumpkin
5-6 walnuts, broken into pieces
1/2-1 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
2 tablespoons milk ( I used oat)
optional- coconut butter to glaze :)

1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees celsius, line a baking tray with baking paper.
2. Steam pumpkin until soft ( 20 mins) and create chia gel
3.Mash pumpkin until lump free:
set aside to cool
4. To create the pumpkin scroll place all the dry ingredients in a medium bowl, stir to combine.
5. Add in the pumpkin and stir to form crumbs, add in chia gel and enough milk to form a soft dough (you may not need all the pumpkin, I had about 1 tablespoon leftover)
Place in fridge while you make the filling.
6. To make filling, place all the ingredients in a saucepan
7. Place on medium heat and stir until thickens and banana has melted:
It looks just like caramel- minus the sugar :)
8. Take dough out of fridge, roll out on a lightly floured piece of baking paper until about1/2 a centimeter thick.
9. Spread on filling, you may have some leftover - is this really a problem?
10. Roll up, cut in half and brush on some milk, place on baking tray:
10. Bake in the oven for 10-15 mins until lightly golden brown and crisp on the outside- oh and the whole house smells amazing too! Place on wire rack to cool slightly- not too much!
11. Glaze with whatever you would like- icing, butter, nut butter, chocolate spread or if you want the best experience ever, be like me and drizzle generously with some coconut butter!
12. Be mind blown, about how amazing this tastes sans butter, sugar, eggs, or anything!
13. Oh- and ENJOY!

 This was definitely better than those over sugary, ridiculously sweet donuts I used to be so obsessed with!
