1/2 cup arrowroot or tapioca flour

1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

Filling:

Caramel:

- 1/3 cup maple syrup

Instructions: 

Combine wet ingredients for the dough in one bowl, dry in another, and them combine. Refrigerate minimum 30 minutes or overnight


When ready to bake combine the ingredients for the caramel in a pan on medium heat, when it starts to bubble set a timer for 5 minutes, then st aside and allow to thicken.


Then make your filling. Roll out your dough to a rectangle (10x12), between two sheets of parchment.

Grease a baking dish with oil and spread 1/4 cup of Carmel mixture along with the chopped pecans, add your rolls and Bake at 350F for 30-35 minutes or until golden brown on top. Drizzle with remaining caramel and more chopped pecans.
