Vegan Cinnamon Rolls

I’ve always been a huge fan of cinnamon rolls. The smell and the taste, heaven on earth! Cinnamon rolls are absolutely one of my favorite unhealthy things to eat, and for some reason I was craving them like crazy the whole month of June. But the thing that stopped me from eating them was that I was eating plant based (maybe better known as vegan) the whole month. It was getting more and more annoying because I was really craving cinnamon rolls. So one day I decided to veganize a regular cinnamon roll recipe in hopes that it would taste somewhat similar to regular cinnamon rolls, but without the animal products. And guess what?! They couldn’t have turned out any better! Pure perfection! My family also approved and we all agreed that I should bake these a lot more in the future, haha! I wanted to share my recipe for vegan cinnamon rolls on the blog because I know I’m not the only person who wants to bake vegan cinnamon rolls. This recipe is super simple and anyone can do it!
150 g Vegan butter
5 dl unsweetened Almond Milk
1 packet dry yeast
1/2 tsp salt
100 g sugar
15 dl flour

Filling ingredients:
100 g Vegan butter
1 dl sugar
4 tsp ground cinnamon

– Melt the vegan butter on the stove. After it’s nice and melted pour in the almond milk and stir.
– Put the yeast in a baking bowl and pour in half the butter/milk mixture. Make sure it’s not too warm, we don’t want to kill the yeast.
– Stir well, try to dissolve the yeast as much as possible.
– Add the rest of the butter/milk mixture.
– Add salt, sugar and flour.
– Combine well and work the dough into a smooth and a little sticky ball.
– Put the dough back on the baking bowl, cover with plastic wrap and leave it there to rise for 30 minutes. While the dough is getting big and fluffy get started on the filling.
– With an electric mixer mix together vegan butter (the butter should be a little soft so that it’s easier to work with later), sugar and ground cinnamon.
– Sprinkle some flour on the surface you’re baking on. The dough is a little sticky, we don’t want it to get stuck on your kitchen counter.
– Take half the dough and roll it into a rectangle.
– Cover the whole rectangle with filling mix.
– Roll up the dough and cut 2 cm thick slices.
– Repeat these steps with the other half of the dough.
– Preheat oven to 250 degrees Celsius (480 degrees Fahrenheit).
– Cover a baking pan with baking paper, then start placing slices on there, swirly sides up. You will need more than just 1 baking pan, I used 4.
– Quickly melt some vegan butter in the microwave and use this to brush over the cinnamon rolls before covering the pans with plastic wrap.
– Leave them under there for another 30 minute rise session. Remove plastic before putting them in the oven.
– Bake each pan in the middle of the oven for 7-8 minutes. No, you can not put all the pans in the oven at the same time.
You can cover them with frosting after they’ve cooled down a little if you want them sweet.
You can also sprinkle on some cane sugar (the reason I didn’t was because we didn’t have any).
I’ve tried to veganize a lot of recipes, but this is by far my most successful one. Let me know if you try making them and what you think!
