Bake a batch of these super soft, gooey, vegan cinnamon rolls to make your Sunday morning a little bit sweeter. Is there anything better than a warm cinnamon roll with a cup of coffee after all? This is my favorite, most simple recipe. Only 7 steps, and now it’s yours!

Here's what you'll need:

Instructions:

  • Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl and sprinkle on yeast. Let the yeast activate for 10 minutes and then add 1 tbsp. of sugar and the salt and stir. 
  • Next, add in flour 1/4 cup at a time, stirring as you go. Dough will be sticky. When it’s too thick to stir, transfer to a lightly floured surface and knead for a minute or so until it forms a loose ball. Rinse your mixing bowl out, coat it with oil and add your dough ball back in. Cover with plastic wrap and set in a warm place to rise for about an hour, or until doubled in size.
  • On a lightly floured surface roll out the dough into a thin rectangle, brush with 3 tbsp of melted butter and top with 1/4 cup sugar and 1/2-1 tbsp of cinnamon. 
  • Starting at one end tightly roll up the dough and situate seam side down. Then with a serrated knife cut the dough into 1.5-2 in. sections and position in a well buttered 8x8 square pan. (about 10 rolls) Brush with remaining butter (2 tbsp) and cover with plastic cover wrap. Let rise while pre-heat oven to 350 Degrees F. 
  • Once oven is hot, bake rolls for 25-30 minutes or until slightly golden brown. Let cool for a few minutes and then serve. 
  • Optional: Frost with dairy-free cream cheese frost.
