  • 1/3 Cup Frozen Cherries (thawed to room temperature, separate from the 1 Cup)
  • 1-2 Tbsp Maple Syrup or Honey (to taste)

Sweet Rolls

  • 1 Wholly Gluten Free Pizza Dough
  • 1/4 Cup Butter (melted)
  • 1/2 Cup Packed Brown Sugar
  • 2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Pecans


  • Add 1 cup thawed Cherries to your blender or food processor and blitz until it reaches a uniform consistency, about 30-60 seconds. Transfer the Cherry purée to a bowl. 
  • Add Chia Seeds and Maple Syrup to the bowl, quantity is depending how sweet you like your jam. Stir the mixture and let sit for at least 5 minutes.
  • Prepare the rolls. Preheat oven to 350°F. 
  • Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray, or line with cooking parchment paper. 
  • Unroll dough into 2 long rectangles on work surface. Firmly press edges together to seal and holes. 
  • Brush with butter, leaving about 1/2 inch on 1 of the long edges of each rectangle of dough without butter. Make sure this edge stays clean so the dough will seal. 
  • Spread the prepared Cherry Chia Seed Jam over the melted butter on dough. 
  • Roll dough up tightly, and seal edge. 
  • Using serrated knife, cut each dough roll into 16 equal slices. 
  • Place slices cut side down 3 inches apart on cookie sheet.
