Delicious, flourless cookies which are soft and chewy with a healthy sticky cinnamon glaze on top! A one bowl recipe which takes 15 minutes to whip up and a very easy ingredient list- Naturally gluten free, vegan, dairy free and refined sugar free!
Please don’t state the obvious.
This blog clearly goes through themes and tries to replicate a favorite flavor on different vehicles. I remember when I first started blogging and sharing recipes, I went through the most bizarre phases. You’re welcome to go through the archives but let’s just say there was the pancakes phase (including sweet potato pancakes and cheeseburger pancakes) and also the….questionable phase where I shared random savory oatmeal concoctions which were not the most visually appealing.
Now? It seems like a ‘sticky cinnamon’ is trending on TBMW.
Take the ‘sticky cinnamon roll/bun’ phenomenon (self-awarded).
Oatmeal- Got the sticky cinnamon roll treatment.
Pancakes- Got the sticky cinnamon roll treatment.
Waffles- Got the sticky cinnamon roll treatment.
Muffins- Got the sticky cinnamon roll treatment.
Baked Oatmeal- Got the sticky cinnamon roll treatment.
Oatmeal AGAIN- Got the sticky cinnamon roll treatment.
Trying to steal the thunder from every other vehicle out there.
For those of you who are over the sticky cinnamon goodness, build a bridge and get over it. Besides today’s recipe, I have three more beauties to
stick throw in your direction.
While this may be overboard for some, let’s highlight the real benefit here- I haven’t bought a Cinnabon cinnamon roll since arriving to America! Long term readers know I have a borderline obsession with them. I blame all these recipes as a lack of consumption, but c’est la vie. Money saved. Health saved. Happiness saved? Maybe. In the meantime, let’s celebrate with these healthy flourless sticky cinnamon bun cookies!
These healthy flourless sticky cinnamon bun cookies are delicious, soft, chewy and pretty much a texture lover’s dream. Without the sticky cinnamon glaze, you only need three ingredients- Not including spices, but they don’t count (Really). These flourless cookies may look sinful but they are actually really healthy for you- In fact, they are PERFECT to snack on anytime or as I’ve been doing, dipping in peanut butter. Naturally gluten free and vegan, they are also refined sugar free!
HACK! For those of you who want a crispier cookie, these aren’t your answer- However, if you bake them an extra 3 minutes and let them cool completely before eating- They’ll be pretty smack bang on.
Make these healthy flourless sticky cinnamon bun cookies and let’s whip our hair back and forth to cinnamon.

Healthy Flourless Sticky Cinnamon Bun Cookies
For the chewy cookies
- 2 cups gluten free oat bran Can sub for gluten free oats or quick oats
- Pinch sea salt
- Pinch cinnamon
- 1/2 cup smooth nut butter of choice I used cashew butter
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup can sub for brown rice syrup or honey
- 1/4 cup dairy free milk of choice*
For the Cinnamon Bun Glaze
- 2-3 tablespoon coconut butter melted
- 1 tablespoon granulated sweetener of choice

- cinnamon for dusting
For the protein packed Cinnamon Bun Glaze
- 1-2 scoops of vanilla or cinnamon protein powder
- Dairy free milk to thin out
- Cinnamon for dusting
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a large baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the oat bran, sea salt, cinnamon, nut butter and maple syrup and mix well. Add dairy free milk one tablespoon at a time until a thick batter is formed.
- Using your hands or a cookie scoop, form into balls and set on the lined baking tray. Press each ball into a cookie shape and top with extra cinnamon. Bake for 12 minutes, or until slightly firm on the edges and remove. Allow to cool completely before glazing.
- Prepare your cinnamon bun glaze by whisking all ingredients in a small bowl. Top the cookies with desired amount.
Cookies are best kept refrigerated and can be frozen. If kept at room temperature, ensure they are covered. Room temperature cookies keep for 3 days.

What obsession are you currently facing? DON’T say pumpkin/apples/Kim Kardashian
OKAY. Sorry. I just need to say this but ‘autocorrect’ didn’t amend ‘Kardashian.’ Please don’t tell me the Oxford Dictionary considers it a word now…

Kardashian. Had to test it on my phone and you’re right – wow! These look awesome and a sticky cinnamon bun phase is a good one to linger in!
Seriously WTF! It better not be included in the dictionary…
Strange phases or not they look delicious. These are no exception!!
Thanks so much, Marye! 🙂
I haven’t had a cinnabon in years! They smell so amazing, but I know they’re so so so bad for you.
My current obsession sounds random, but it’s amazing. I ran out of bread, but wanted a vehicle for my morning egg and cheese, so I put it on top of a waffle and ate it like an open-faced sandwich. I was incredible and now I can’t stop.
You’ve sparked a craving now!!!
So these cookies look awesome, Arman…and sticky cinnamon is right up my alley. But I need to know…what happened to all of the icing on the top cookie. Did you lick it off while taking pictures? I caught you!
LOL! I thought it would showcase a contrast but it actually looks so silly. I should have just added sprinkles or oversaturated it or ripped it off 😉
10 points if you can guess the 3 inspirations 😉
Maybe we should call these stick cinnamon YUM cookies, Arman. Classic and so easy. I love your great treats and I’m into themes myself, currently trending on pumpkin spice on my blog….have a fabulous weekend!
Oh pumpkin spice and after today, I hope a chowder trend 😀
With the various cinnamon creations, you’re just giving all people a way to use up ingredients in their pantry. People might not have oatmeal, but still want a cinnamon recipe, so you have other options. I love mixing cinnamon in banana ice cream, it feels fancy even though I’m not kidding myself, it’s not 😛
Right? Mmmmm it’s a good way to get in fruit!
You know what my favorite use of cinnamon is? It’s the secret ingredient in one of my chili recipes. Chili, cookie… slightly different moods to eat them so I’m glad I have options.
Oh wow- I once heard of chilli with cocoa but never cinnamon- I’m intrigued!
Aw…”whip my hair”…it never gets old. Fabulous cookies, too!
I think Willow Smith should sponsor my posts moving forward lolol. Going to write my pitch letter now! :p
Wow, this is lovely and looks so incredibly delicious. I cant wait to try this out.
Please do, Fareeha! 🙂
You know the texts you get around 9am? Current obsession, right there. And speak of the devil… it’s what I’m currently eating 😆
Hey, I happen to like those sweet potato pancakes. They’re some of my favorites so put those in the judgement free zone please. 🙂
😀 YAY! I remember when you made them and added those glorious spring onions on top 🙂
Currently obsessed with iced coffee – it’s hot, the heat makes me sleepy = iced coffee for the win!
Oh yum! I could go for one now!
So essentially what you’re saying is that I can drizzle Maurice on top and they still have no carbs?
Obviously. Maurice is high protein.
