  • ½ cup vanilla or cinnamon whey
  • 1 cup almond meal
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup/rice malt syrup
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • pinch of Himalayan sea salt


  • 7 medjool dates (soaked in hot water for 10 minutes then drained)
  • ½ cup organic coconut cream
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon maple syrup
  • handful of your fav nuts, I have used walnuts and pecans


  1. Heat (fan forced) oven to 185 degrees
  2. Line a flat tray with non-stick baking paper
  3. Gently fold the pastry ingredients together until a nice dough forms
  4. Place  dough in a cool place (ideally fridge) for 10 minutes
  5. For your filling, blitz all ingredients except your nuts until a deliciously smooth textured date spread forms.
  6. Place filling ingredients a small bowl and set aside.
  7. Once your pastry has cooled, using a rolling pin (or wine bottle) gently roll the mixture out until about 15cm long, and cut to size..
  8. Keep 2 tablespoons of the cin-a-filling  mixture to the side and spread the rest evenly across the pastry.
  9. Sprinkle your nuts and a pinch more cinnamon. Gently roll the scrolls up and place up so the swirl is facing the top of the oven.recipe protein cinnamon scrolls keira rumble
  10. Place in oven for 13 minutes
