Vegan Cinnamon Rolls

My friends, let me tell you – these cinnamon rolls are amazing! They’re light and airy, melt-in-your-mouth delicious. I make them whenever I have company over, because people love them, and I’m always asked for the recipe. A batch of these will last about 4 days in an air-tight container, but I bet they will be long gone before that!

Vegan Cinnamon Rolls

Servings: 10-12


  • 1 Tablespoon Instant Yeast
  • 1/4 Cup Coconut Sugar
  • 3 Cups Flour (I used whole wheat)
  • 1/2 Cup Vegan Butter
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Cinnamon
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 Cup Almond or Soy Milk, Unsweetened
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt


  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, warm milk and butter (don’t allow it to come to a boil). Once melted, remove from heat and allow to reach room temperature (not cold and not hot).
  2. Pour the milk & butter mixture into a large bowl, along with 1 tablespoon sugar. Add yeast and let sit for about 10 minutes.
  3. Add salt and flour, and mix until your arm feels like it’s going to fall out. The mixture will be sticky – this is normal.
  4. Transfer to a lightly floured surface, and knead into a ball. Cover with plastic wrap and allow to sit in a warm space for 1 hour (I put a bowl of water in the microwave and heat for 2 minutes, then remove, and put the dough in there – the warm microwave makes the rough rise faster).
  5. Grease an 8×8 baking dish. Mix together the cinnamon and sugar. Melt the remaining vegan butter. Set aside.
  6. Roll out the dough into a large rectangle on a lightly floured surface. Brush with melted butter, then sprinkle on the cinnamon & sugar mixture.
  7. Start rolling the rough into a large “log”, then cut the rough into 1-2 inch pieces. Add to your greased baking dish and place them on top of your stove while you pre-heat the oven to 350F.
  8. Once the oven is heated, pop the cinnamon rolls inside and bake for about 25 minutes, or until lightly browned.
  9. If you want to make a glaze, mix together 1-2 tablespoons milk, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 1 cup powdered sugar. Drizzle over warm cinnamon rolls and serve immediately.
