Gluten-Free Cinnamon Roll Bread

For those of you who need (or want) to be gluten-free, one of the hardest things to give up is bread and pastries, especially cinnamon rolls. So we have a recipe for you that combines both of these favorites and it’s gluten free!


For the Bread

  • 2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour (TRY: Cup4Cup)
  • 1 Tbs. baking powder
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1½ cups milk
  • ⅓ cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tbs. unsalted butter (melted)
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon

For the Glaze

  • ½ cup powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbs. milk


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bottom and sides of a 9-inch loaf pan; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder and salt. In a medium bowl, combine sugar, egg, milk, Greek yogurt and vanilla; add to dry ingredients, and mix until well combined. To make the swirl, in a small bowl, combine brown sugar, melted butter and cinnamon.
  3. Pour about ⅓ of the batter into prepared loaf pan. Spoon ½ of swirl mix into a few spots in the batter; use a knife to swirl around. Top with another ⅓ of batter, and spread evenly. Repeat the swirl step. Add the last ⅓ of batter. Use knife to create swirls.
  4. Bake in oven for 45–50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted. Remove bread from oven, and allow to cool. In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar and milk; pour over bread.
