Servings 6 people


  • baking trey, oven, food processor


  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 2/3 cup coconut sugar powder / xylitol powder
  • 2 tbsp room temperature plant-based butter
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 1 tsp high quality vanilla paste / extract
  • 1 roll gluten free pastry (suitable for croissants)
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup / agave syrup for glazing
  • 2 tbsp plant-based milk
  • 2 tbsp almond flakes for decoration
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar powder / xylitol powder


Let's make the Almond filling

  • In a food processor combine almond flour, coconut sugar powder, room temperature plant-based-butter, almond extract, vanilla paste, lemon juice. Add the water incrementally to reach a paste like consistency.
  • Once you have reached the desired consistency, set aside.

Let's make the rolls

  • Prepare a baking trey lined up with parchement paper.
  • Preheat oven to 200°C (375°F)
  • Prepare the puff pastry. Roll it out on its own baking paper.
  • Cut it into 6 equal rectangles.
  • Add almond filling rolling the pastry. You can add it twice while rolling if you want them rich in filling.
  • Place them on the baking trey.
  • Mix the agave syrup and the plant-based milk in a small bowl.
  • Brush the rolls with the liquid mixture.
  • Sprinkle almond flakes. Make sure they will stick to the pastry.
  • Bake for around 15 minutes. Make sure you check the oven quite often since the baking time depends on each oven.
  • Remove from oven. Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
  • Powder the rolls with powdered coconut sugar or powdered xylitol.
  • Enjoy!
  • Best to be consumed the same day!


  • Coconut sugar powder can be replaced with xylitol powder if we want a white almond paste. 
  • This recipe uses a store-bought gluten-free puff pastry so the result might be different depending on the brand. I can make a suggestion yet since I've only used Just Roll so far.
