The Best Vegan and Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls

we have The Best Vegan Cinnamon Rolls, which is the original version made with all purpose flour and i have made lots of spin offs that are phenomenal.

now, anyone that eats gluten free can enjoy The Best Vegan and Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls!

they’re scrumptious beyond, delicate yet dense, made with wholesome ingredients and just all around delicious rolls that are made without gluten.

and ya know what? they’re just as good in my opinion! yes, the texture is different, but they’re still amazing.

for this recipe, the main ingredient you’re going to need is gluten free all purpose flour.

i did not use baking flour for this recipe by the way, just plain all purpose gf free 1:1 flour from King Arthur.

you will want to look at the formulation of the flours and make sure you’re using the same ones if you’re making your own or using a different brand.

the rolls will still turn out great with other brands, but to get this exact perfect texture, i would follow this recipe exactly if that’s possible.

just like my other rolls that use gluten, this recipe also requires yeast, which you shouldn’t be intimidated by!

i like Fleischmann’s rapid rise yeast but you can use regular non rapid rise as long as the dough has time to set!

here’s everything you need to make The Best Vegan and Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls

gluten free all purpose 1:1 flour

tapioca flour


organic cane sugar

avocado oil

apple cider vinegar

almond milk

vanilla extract


coconut sugar

maple syrup

vegan butter

the ingredients are super easy and you can get ahold of them at any grocery store!

The Best Vegan and Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls are not too sweet by the way! they’re perfect because you taste the cinnamon and dough without it being overpowered by sugar.

the glaze is just powdered sugar, a splash of vanilla extract, vegan butter and almond milk- super easy!

you can make your own or even use store bought vanilla frosting.
