Paleo Strawberry-Orange Breakfast Rolls

Grain Free Strawberry-Orange Breakfast RollsIt is strawberry season.  Oregon has some pretty amazing strawberries, so when this short season starts, you can bet we take FULL advantage of all the luscious red berries.

I wanted to create a series of recipes using one of our favorite berries, but I also wanted to cross some recipes on my Pinterest Boards as ‘tried” (yes, I actually try almost all the recipes I pin!).  Like any person who strives for efficiency, I decided to put these two tasks together.  Why not take a recipe I wanted to try and turn it on its head a bit to feature my key ingredient?  So that is what I did!

In my strawberry baking frenzy, I took loads of pictures and tasted lots of goodness.  But you know what?  As beautiful as strawberries are, I did not love any of the pictures I took for any of my strawberry posts!! GRRR!!!   I debated, but decided posting these recipe was worth it, and that a picture could always be changed!

Today’s recipe started as a cinnamon roll from The Urban Poser.  Have you ever had the pleasure of  perusing her recipes?  So much deliciousness, and her pictures?  Ahh..gorgeous!  So thank you Jennie, for all the deliciousness you share with us!Paleo Strawberry-Orange Breakfast Rolls

Only the filling has changed in this recipe.  Definitely not your traditional cinnamon roll!  Full of sweet-tart flavor and caramel undertones from the coconut nectar, these are quite delicious!

  • Follow The Urban Poser’s recipe and change only the filling!
  • For an egg free option, I think about 2 tablespoons psyllium husk powder mixed in with the dry would work, although I have not tried this yet…next batch!
  • For added orange goodness, I did add orange zest to the dough too.    It is a very easy dough to handle, but moist and breakable unlike typical yeasted gluten breads.
  • Once you have rolled out the dough:


  • 1/3-1/2 cup coconut nectar
  • 2 cup diced strawberries
  • Zest of one orange
  • 4 tablespoons almond flour (this absorbs some of the liquid released by the strawberries)



  1. Roll and bake as the Urban Poser’s recipe dictates .
  2. Spread the coconut nectar evenly over the dough.
  3. Sprinkle with the diced strawberries,  orange zest, and almond flour.
  4. Top with a drizzle of warmed coconut butter.…heaven!Paleo Strawberry-Orange Breakfast Rolls

  1. Hi Tessa, These strawberry orange breakfast rolls look decadent and so delicious! I have to make them soon!

  2. wow, Tessa! those look incredible! i love the fresh strawberries in it! yum! thanks for sharing!

    Hey Tessa,

    Your pictures are great and that first one…winner!! Really nice lighting. You know food doesn’t have to look perfect to taste out of this world. I think we get stuck on the food having to look immaculate with everything in its place and all fancy. But I get it, I didn’t like the photos of my lasagna (hate taking pics at night), but you get those posts once in a while…but they must be published.

    So this recipe is awesome. You most certainly joined the best of both words, and what a fun twist on cinnamon rolls. That coconut butter topping looks divine.

    Great job, Tessa! Love these.

  4. I want to try these too!! Look so yumm!!

  5. Wow I bet these disappeared quickly! Looks yummy.

  6. Run DMT says:

    That looks truly amazing. Perfect for the summer months when strawberries are in abundance!

  11. Tessa, really…don’t worry about your photos. They show exactly what it looks like and that is authentic. Then, when I’m baking I know exactly what to expect mine should look like ☺ Thanks for sharing this tasty recipe. I have a strawberry patch, but even with fencing and straw, some type of critter keeps nibbling on them :( The store strawberries leave a lot to be desired, but I may just have to give in an get me a few pints just to give this and your pie a try!

  12. I will definitely be pinning this recipe as i have a friend who doesnt eat many grains and im sure she would love these. thanks so much, found you through the whats cooking blog carnival. Blessings!

    Oh, Urban Poser is one of my favorite blogs, you should try the snickerdoodles as well! Out of curiosity, have you tried this recipe with the psyllium/egg sub yet? I’d so love to be able to make this… cinnamon rolls used to be my favorites! Hahaha thank you :)

  24. Sierra says:

    Did you ever try them with the psyllium husk? Just wondering !

  25. I should not make these. I should only look at the pictures. LOL

    Where do you buy coconut nectar? I’ve never heard of it.

    • Hi Toni! SOmetimes online (i linked it to amazon above), and you can find it in most natural foods stores too.
