Vegan gluten free cinnamon rolls

If you ask me, these babies taste better than the normal cinnamon rolls you get from the baker. These are goey, soft, moist, sticky, sweet, filled with the flavor from dried fruit and fresh apples. They are packed full of nutrients and of course, they don't contain any sugar or flour.
I had these as afternoon snack, breakfast, for tea time break (dipped in my mug of vanilla chai tea), as a treat when i was craving something delicious and for night snack. Well, they work as everything. You can store them in the fridge and heat them up in the microwave, decorate them with whatever you like and eat them with anything you like.
Here's the recipe:

2 ripe bananas
200 g chickpeas (I used canned)
2 tbsp psyssilium husks (or oats)
50 g raisins

2 apples
50 g dates
20 g dried figs
1-2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius or 392 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mash the bananas and the chickpeas with a fork (or save the struggle and blend it). Add raisins and psyssilium husks and mix well. Spread it all out on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Form it into a thin square and bake for 10 minutes.
Blend the dried figs and dates with cinnamon and a little water. Slice or grate the apples.
When it's done baking, let it cool a little, spread the mixture out and place the apples on it.
Gently, roll it and slice it with a sharp knife. Lay them on a plate and serve right away!
Enjoy these fabulous healthy treats guys!
You can make these even faster by substituting the blend of dried dates and dried figs with a pack of "figenpålæg" or "fig spread" and add the cinnamon to the dough instead.
