Gluten Free Vegan Pumpkin Sticky Buns

This recipe might have changed my life. This is one of those triumphs that Ill be on cloud nine over for the next several weeks. They are incredible, amazing.. they might make you cry even. My husband said they were the BEST sticky bun he has ever had. (even before gluten free) I have been thinking and plotting out Pumpkin Cinnamon Buns for months! And I mean months! The problem is that in most cases creating a gluten free dough that will rise- but is pliable enough to roll out in the typical sticky bun fashion is a combination that I had found difficult.

Insert- King Arthur's New Gluten Free Flour Mixes. I have been reading and hearing rave reviews. So while I'm not one to buy flour mixes- as I find them to be a crutch as I put myself through this Gluten Free kitchen boot camp. BUT they do offer a great starting point. I have read that the King Arthur Gluten Free Bread Mix bakes into a gorgeous Loaf. That's exactly what I needed- a flour mix that would provide me with a guaranteed rise. So I picked up a box and I used it- and talk about results.

King Arthur Flour is made primarily from Rice and Tapioca Flour. Not my favorites health wise. Now that I know a good recipe formula to follow- I will be working on a healthier rendition of this recipe. (I mean Sticky Buns aren't ever meant to be healthy- but perhaps I can squeeze in some Whole Grain Flours and Unrefined Sugars)

I Must give you fare warning. These are FATTENING. You could use less butter.. but what fun is that :) Honestly they would still be good if you omit some of the butter from the filling and the pan.. BUT If I'm having a sticky bun- I want it to be buttery and moist- just sopping with deliciousness. I CAN"T STAND dry Cinnamon or Sticky Buns. Who wants to indulge in that??

So here Friends is one of the BEST recipes thus far that I am SO delighted to share.
