But chances are (if you’re anything like me) the thought of homemade cinnamon rolls sounds amazing on your tastebuds, but uncomfortable on your gut.
Not to mention cinnamon rolls are a lot of work to make… and I’m not sure about you but I’d rather spend that time relaxing and hanging out with my fam.
Which is exactly where this Gut-Friendly Cinnamon Roll Oat Bake + CBD Cream Cheese Frosting comes in.
It’s a make ahead dish, which tends to be my go-to for holiday gatherings, as you can do the prep work ahead of time so you can actually chill at the event itself.
It’s also serves 6-8, so it’s perfect for feeding a crowd (or if you just happen to want leftovers for the week).
But the best part? It tastes like a heartier, healthier version of a warm, gooey, cream-cheese glazed cinnamon roll, that also happens to be loaded with gut-health-boosting nutrients, helping to naturally balance your hormones and empower you to feel your best.
Truly, this is a meal that actually tastes good and makes you feel good too. Snag the deets on the gut-friendly ingredients below, as well as the recipe.
Wishing you the happiest and healthiest of holidays my love, you deserve it.
Oats are rich in a prebiotic fiber called beta glucan that feeds the beneficial bacteria in your gut. This bacteria uses the fiber to reproduce, and enhances your microbiome’s ability to make more nutrients, optimize digestion, relieve constipation, metabolize fats, regulate blood sugar, manage inflammation and decrease risk factors like obesity, type 2 diabetes and metabolic syndrome. ***If you have an autoimmune condition like Hashimoto’s or Celiacs, oats may be difficult to digest.
Adding riced cauliflower to this dish not only successfully sneaks in a veggie to a sweet breakfast (no one will know, trust) but it significantly boosts the gut-friendly quotient of this dish with glucosinolate. This sulphur compound helps to protect the vulnerable lining of the stomach, reducing the chances of developing leaky gut syndrome or other digestive disorders. It also prevents bacterial overgrowth from occurring in the gut microflora, by keeping bad bacteria from overwhelming the digestive system and allowing good bacteria to thrive.
This powerful nut contains a beneficial combination of omega-3 to omega-6 fatty acids, abundance of disease-fighting phytochemicals, and high fiber content, which has been shown to improve digestion and lower inflammation.
This easy, make ahead breakfast tastes like a heartier, healthier version of a warm, gooey, cream-cheese glazed cinnamon roll, that also happens to be loaded with gut-health-boosting nutrients, naturally balancing your hormones and empowering you to feel your best.
