it says it all in the title… and it’s the truth. The Best Vegan Cinnamon Rolls are the realest deal around. i promise you they deliver. so when you go to a bakery or restaurant, The Best Vegan Cinnamon Rolls are what you get. anyone that doesn’t eat vegan baked goods will never ever know the difference.
you won’t miss the eggs, you won’t miss the dairy…you won’t miss anything about non-vegan cinnamon rolls because this recipe truly takes it home. the dough is just perfect and SUPER easy to make!! plus, you make the rolls the night before and if you can’t then, i for sure recommend refrigerating the cinnamon rolls for several hours.
the key is to just ever so slightly under bake the rolls so they’re a little doughy but still have the classic cinnamon rolls texture. The Best Vegan Cinnamon Rolls were a hit yesterday for Christmas morning. while they make a delicious holiday breakfast, you can enjoy them any day of the year.
there are ZERO funky ingredients in The Best Vegan Cinnamon Rolls and as always, minimal ingredients are needed.
what do you need?
- all purpose organic unbleached flour
- extra virgin olive oil
- rapid rise yeast
- maple syup
- unsweetened almond milk
- light brown sugar
- vanilla extract
- organic cane sugar
- creamy dairy free yogurt
- vegan butter
ah there we go, a center shot. the most important ones because we all have to see what the texture is like. glorious isn’t it?! basically the same thing as pillsbury ones, which i grew up eating but ya know, healthier and vegan of course.
i mean, they’re good enough that you don’t even need a glaze if you so choose. while i think they kind of sort of totally go together, the rolls are simply perfect as is.
can you prep these cinnamon rolls the night before?
yes, if you can you should but if not, make sure you refrigerate them for 4-6 hours.
is the prep process easy?
yes! all you have to do is warm up the almond milk and then add the remaining wet ingredients and whisk them together.
then, add the rapid rise yeast, mix well and let it set for a couple of minutes. after that, you can add the flour and knead the dough.
enjoy my friends and i am SO SO excited to see your tagged pics!
