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.

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.

  6. 1/4 cup dairy free milk of choice*
For the Cinnamon Bun Glaze

Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and line a large baking tray with baking paper and set aside.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Prepare your cinnamon bun glaze by whisking all ingredients in a small bowl. Top the cookies with desired amount.
Notes
  1. * Depending on the nut butter you use and oat type, you may need more. Adjust accordingly.
  2. 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.

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…

  1. 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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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 😛

  4. 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.
