Cinnamon Rolls (Top 8 Free)

Finding a good cinnamon roll that Bubs can have has been quite difficult.  On Christmas and Easter morning when the rest of us are having cinnamon swirl bread or monkey bread, Bubs has just gotten toast with cinnamon sugar sprinkled on top.  It has been good enough for him, but of course I want more!  I came across this recipe on Making it Milk-Free's blog and thought it was worth a try.  I have to be honest...the pumpkin made me shy away from this recipe at first, but in reality you can't even taste it.  I made mine slightly different than she did here.  Here's my ingredient list:

Ingredients
1/3 c warmed rice milk
2 packets active dry yeast (I used the Rapid Rise kind....I'm impatient!)
3/4 c sugar
3 Tbsp canola oil
1 tsp vanilla
2/3 c canned pumpkin

2 c gluten-free flour (I used King Arthur Flour Gluten Free Multi-Purpose Flour)
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp xanthan gum or guar gum (I omitted this, but I wish I hadn't)
1/2 tsp salt

Filling
5 Tbsp milk-free butter (I used Earth Balance Soy Free)
1/4 c brown sugar
4 tsp cinnamon

Icing is made with powdered sugar, vanilla, and rice milk.
