Would love such a recipe. The ones that I have found on the internet do not hold up well. I replace the cornstarch with arrowroot which from what I've researched should not be a problem. Another site said to replace the xanthan gum with the same amount of ground flax. I know 0's, non-secretors are not suppose to have cinammon so I've tried ground cardamon and that was quite good; but there is nothing like cinnamon. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I eat it on anything.. make omelets add it to meat spices, use it for sweet cravings..  

In Europe they sleep on it, and add it into shoes.. its a wonder food..

I think while its 'avoid', I wonder if it is avoid because we would mostly add it to foods we should not eat in the first place.. such as wheat, farina, apple strudel, sugar stuff.. ?

some foods need to be evaluated - against - what the rules are, because in some books it was ok to eat it, in others it is no more..

I can tell you from experience, you're not going to get those beautiful fluffy light bakery-style cinnamon buns if you're going gluten-free, it's just not going to happen.

Now, having said that, if you're willing to compromise you can get something like a cinnamon bun with a little work.

If you can do spelt flour, you can make a nice bun:

http://www.healthygreenkitchen.com/vegan-cinnamon-rolls.html

If spelt is out for you, it gets more problematic because most online gluten-free recipes use avoids like xanthan and/or guar gum as well as tapioca or potato starch or cornstarch, as you mentioned. The gums replace the gluten so the dough will hold together and rise, and the starches replace the flour. Here's a good example:

http://glutenfreehomemaker.com/2008/12/gluten-free-cinnamon-rolls/

I have used a recipe similar to this one, substituting almond milk for the cow's milk, millet and sweet white rice flour for the sorghum and cornstarch, and ground flaxseed for the xanthan gum. The result was not too bad--they didn't rise much but they were very tasty. I don't use a recipe with yeast anymore now though, as commercial yeast makes me very sick. The vegan recipe listed above is quite tasty and uses baking powder as the rising agent rather than yeast. The buns are small but have a nice richness, especially if you use ghee or melted butter in place of the oil.

Hope this is helpful to you.

Lola - nothing in the recipe centre.

Goldie - I agree! Cinammon is my one avoid that I am not ready to give up. It is good with cumin in ground lamb meat balls. Totally rounds of the flavour of the lamb. We just love it. Without it the meatballs are mediocre!

Bridhid - Thanks for the recipes. I can do spelt only if I am a secretor which I doubt that I am. Sending away next week for the test. But...I can do kamut, I'll research it to see if it has any sticking power! If not, the other one looks fine with a bit of tweaking. When I get around to making them, I will report back (hopefully I can find the thread again).

Thanks everyone! More ideas welcome as well!!!

Funny to read this this morning...last night I was craving a cinnamon bun so badly I could taste it.  It was torturing me for a few seconds (like a nicotine fit).  Then the craving went away.  I do miss cinnamon, but I don't use it.  I'm sure it is an avoid for a reason.  I use ginger, nutmeg, cardmom, cloves...but no cinnamon.     It never bothered me before, but neither did wheat, corn, dairy, etc. (that I was aware of ) until I gave them up.  If I eat wheat or corn now, I feel terrible.

You may not want to hear this, but just forget about cinnamon buns and make something else compliant that won't be like a poor substitution.

Virginia - the last sentence made me laugh out loud! Yes, prohibition does not bring out the best in us  , always trying to wrangle. I am 99% compliant, one day I will accept the no cinammon fate more graciously. Your spice ideas sound promising.

I have been reading through the cook right book and there are a few recipe but they pretty well all seem to use spelt.

cinnamon - raisin bread page 258. it also uses soya powder (what ever that is) it says for type O's to substitute the cinnamon with nutmeg.

I'm going to try some of the recipes to see what happens. as they will only be occasionally made dues to us doing so well without much grain.

drown whatever needs sticking in butter then warm it up.. yamm

I must try all those other spices.. so chicken.. just don't know how to use them.. YET!

I get cinnamon about twice a year..if I get rice pudding in a diner..  

I love the round things made out of spiced stuff - like maybe gingerbread - they sell them only at xmas.. my friend buys a package for me and I eat them all by my own self..  no sharing..

think of it .. spices on fruit.. ?  might try that.. much better then bread..

ANYTHING WHITE is only to PUT other good things on it!! Eat the good things.. forget white foods..

it gets easier every year..

You could try the flaxseed foccaccia recipe and swirl in some allspice. I've done that and added raisins and a bit of agave, substituting ghee for the oil, and it was pretty good. It isn't a cinnamon bun but it's a close relative to cinnamon-raisin bread and really delicious toasted. I know, I know, when you want a cinnamon bun that's what you want, nothing else will do!

Too funny Goldie. I can now become a butter addict rather than a cinammon craver!!!
Thanks Policychecker, well for checking!
Bridghid - Flax is not my friend, even if I drink 1 gallon of water. It seems to paralyze my bowel! I envy those who can eat it and be regular. Perhaps when I am more healed from celiac my relationship to flax will change.

I went to a new gluten-free bakery in our neighbourhood, they use arrowroot instead of cornstarch which is great but also some bean flours that I have as avoids. But...it got me thinking that I could sprout my own that are diamonds, dehydrate them and make flour. Now I understand why I have 'happy bowels' when I've eaten other GF cinammon buns. I bet it's the fiber of the beans. Brighid you are probably thinking : "Why don't you just eat the beans?" I think I will begin to eat beans a few times a week. But I also am determined to make cinammon buns. What a delicious way to eat beans along with my compliant flours!
Thanks everyone for your time and help. Much appreciated.

PC - thanks a bunch for that! Some gluten-free recipes in there. When I put in gluten-free in the database search I only got one. Also, I typed in ghee this evening and was amazed at the recipes that showed up. One for a gluten-free bread that looks promising with a few tweaks.

I found some pinto beans in the pantry, they are a diamond sprouted or not. I've gone ahead and sprouted them as they may be easier to digest so that I can eventually make flour out of them.

I wonder how either Explorers as a whole or perhaps just various ones from the blood groups are fine with the grains and beans or not? I'm allowed 1/2 cup grains 3X daily & 1/2 cup beans/legumes 6 x weekly. I never get around to eating a whole day's ration. I do try to get the veggies, fruit and some protein in, but not always in the amounts suggested.
Every so often I feel put off of food and one day a week feel the need to eat lightly. I do enjoy eating to be sure but not such huge amounts. I like the variety I get from SWAMI. I may start a thread regarding this subject.

Dianne--if you can make beans into flour for cinnamon buns, go for it! Sounds good to me I've made brownies with sprouted flours and they were absolutely delicious, so why not?
