Paleo Cinnamon Pecan Roll Cookies

I had to make something special for my Crossfit Empirical Beotches!  These Girls are by far the BEST!!  All I did was deconstruct my Paleo Cinnamon Bun recipe. 

Ingredients Roll/Bottom Layer:
Almond Flour 3 1/2 cups
Eggs 2 large room temp
Coconut Oil 3 tablespoons
Agave/Honey 3 tablespoons  
Coconut Flour 1 teaspoon 
Vanilla 1 tablespoon 
Baking Powder 1 teaspoon
Sea Salt 1/2 teaspoon

Mix all ingredients together to form a dough (will be very sticky). Place dough inbetween wax paper; and roll out thinly to fit a 13x9 baking pan.  Put in pan lined with parchment paper.

Ingredients Filling/Top Layer:
Pecans/Walnuts 1 cup chopped
Dates Pitted 1/2 cup chopped
Cinnamon 1/4 cup
Agave/Honey 1/4 cup
Coconut Oil 2 tablespoons
Vanilla 2 teaspoons 
Sea Salt 1/2 teaspoon 

Pulse all ingredients in food processor.  Spread evenly over top of bottom layer.

Bake at 325 degrees for 20-25 minutes until lightly golden brown.  Allow to fully cool before Icing.

Ingredients Icing:
Coconut Oil 1 cup organic *not melted
Agave/Honey 1/4 cup
Vanilla 1 tablespoon 
Arrow Root Powder 1 teaspoon 

Mix Coconut Oil with Agave/Honey to form a thick paste (this step necessary to prevent separation). Add Vanilla and Arrow Root Powder making sure no lumps. Set aside in cool area to allow the icing to tighten up for a few minutes. Then spread evenly over the top of the cooled cookie cake.  Cut with cookie cutter shapes or as desired.
