These AIP Cinnamon Swirl Squares are paleo, grain-free, dairy-free, and a cinnamon lover’s dream! Sure to satisfy your sweet cravings without any refined sugar, they’re light, soft and delicious.
If you are a cinnamon and/or a coffee cake fan, this recipe is for you. These AIP Cinnamon Swirl Squares are delicious and so comforting. I love that they’re not too sweet, and that the hefty dose of cinnamon is blood sugar balancing. Serve as an afternoon snack with a cup of tea, or as delicious dessert. Any way and any time, they’re truly scrumptious!
The texture of these is so soft and they definitely melt in your mouth. It is important to allow these to cool completely before cutting into them after baking. This allows the gelatin to set and the batter to firm up a bit more.
Here’s what you’ll need for these cinnamon swirl squares:
- coconut butter, melted
- full fat, additive free coconut milk – this is key for the texture
- unsweetened applesauce
- palm shortening – oil won’t work the same here.
- cassava flour – I recommend Bob’s red mill or Otto’s
- tigernut flour
- coconut sugar
FAQs for these Cinnamon Squares
Can I substitute…
I don’t recommend any substitutions in this recipe and cannot guarantee the same results if you choose to make any. The palm shortening is especially important here to create a soft texture and oil will not work in the same way.
Can I use a different size pan?
I’ve made these in both a 9×6 pan and a standard 8×4 loaf pan – both took between 22-23 minutes to bake. If can use a larger sized pan squares will be flatter and you might need to reduce the baking time.
How do I store these?
You can store in a sealed container at room temperature for up to 2 days or refrigerate for 4-5 days. I have not tried freezing these.
