I have been so excited about the feedback and inspiration that the sticky buns have generated that I decided that we need one more take at these... something hazelnut - something chocolatey.
Comments fron Instagram and Facebook have been streaming in letting me know that you all are LOVING these sweet treats, and that is fantastic - I love knowing what YOU love!
By the way, if you have not "liked" Sweet n' Savory Life on Facebook, check me out over there! It's a good way to keep in touch as I provide you with recipe updates.
We can even chat some if you have questions or comments.
Taking a look at the kitchen forecast for next month, I am going to begin a whole month of delicious savory dishes to balance out our sweet teeth a bit (I know, I know), but I promise it will be delicious, taste bud teasing, and a lot of fun.
We have gluten free vegan pizza coming up, tofu scrambles, and other yummy recipes that I am excited about sharing.
Until then, here is another sticky bun for you, using the Bob's Red Mill products, as we have been doing all month. A completely satisfying product.
Chocolatey hazelnut sticky buns.
I know. Sounds phenomenal right?
Look at them...
With all of the craze about Nutella and that hazelnut-chocolate goodness, I thought I would share with you a gluten free and vegan sticky bun that uses both ingredients!
I say chocolate (or carob) and hazelnut belong together now - I am a believer!
I have sub'ed out the chocolate for carob, which tastes the same essentially. Feel free to do what you want with these.
They are so rich and decadent - Just flawless gluten free goodness.
