Gluten Free Honey Buns
These fluffy Gluten Free Honey Buns with a simple vanilla glaze are the best breakfast treat! Wake up to a bite of honey-sweetened, ooey-gooey heaven with this easy-to-make variation of a homemade cinnamon rolls recipe.
By now you may know that any excuse I have to naturally sweeten something, I’ll take it. That’s why I’m officially declaring my undying love for these gluten-free honey buns. Irresistibly fluffy, filled with warm cinnamon, and sweetened with honey. Baked golden in the oven, then glazed. My kind of comfort food!
And comforting, it is. I love making a batch of these to enjoy with the family on a cozy fall day. They’re delicious as a light breakfast or snack, and sweet enough to have as a dessert. You’re going to love how the honeyed dough and buttery filling just melt in your mouth.
