Vegan Cinnamon Rolls For All The Breakfast Glory
Arguably one of the most delicious vegan desserts, these cinnamon rolls are a crowd pleaser for sure! They taste EXACTLY like regular cinnamon rolls but have no eggs, milk or butter...how!? JOI. That’s how! Get ready to give your favorite holiday breakfast a delicious vegan makeover…
By replacing the milk with cashew milk made with JOI, replacing the eggs and butter in the dough with a scoop of JOI, this dough remarkably has the same flavor and texture as regular cinnamon roll dough. The inside is made of a lot of cinnamon and coconut sugar for a deep, delicious cinnamon roll filling.
The frosting for these cinnamon rolls is also, you guessed it, JOI! JOI plus a little maple syrup and a splash of water to thin it out makes the perfect frosting. It’s not overpoweringly sweet but gives them that feeling of super indulgent cinnamon rolls.
8 large cinnamon rolls
1.5 cups warm cashew milk (made with JOI) separated 1 cup + ½ cup
1 packet rapid rise yeast
¼ cup coconut sugar
2 tablespoons JOI
2.5 cups of flour
½ cup coconut sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
2 tbsp melted coconut oil
½ cup JOI
¼ cup maple syrup
Splash of water to thin it out to your taste!
How It’s Made:
- Heat your milk in a microwave safe measuring cup for 30 seconds.
- In a stand mixer bowl, combine 1 cup of the warm milk with yeast, sugar, JOI, and flour.
- Mix on low until a shaggy dough starts to form.
- Change the mixing attachment to the dough hook and slowly add in the extra ½ cup of warm milk until it starts to form a dough ball. (If it starts to stick to the sides or bottom of the mixing bowl sprinkle in a bit of flour)
- Let it knead for 5 minutes.
- Transfer the dough ball to a greased bowl and let it rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
- It should double in size.
- Roll it out to a 9x14 rectangle and spread the melted coconut oil all over leaving a ½ inch border dry on the dough
- In a small bowl mix the cinnamon and coconut sugar and sprinkle over the melted coconut oil.
- Tightly roll it up starting with the 9inch side and cut 8 equal cinnamon rolls.
- Place in a greased baking dish (9x13) and let rise an additional 30 minutes.
- Bake at 350 for 20 minutes until golden brown.
- While they are cooling off a bit, mix ½ cup JOI with maple syrup. You may want to add a splash of water to make it thin enough to pour over the cinnamon rolls.
- Add frosting to the cinnamon rolls and enjoy!
