Cinnamon Rolls

What you need: 

[u]Cinnamon Rolls[/u]:
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/2 teaspoons yeast
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup nondairy milk
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons melted vegan margarine (I use Earth Balance)
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoon cinnamon [u]Icing[/u]:
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon nondairy milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

What you do: 

1. Cinnamon Rolls: In a bowl, combine all-purpose flour, yeast, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add nondairy milk and vegetable oil; mix until dough becomes sticky mass.
2. In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. In a small saucepan, melt margarine.
3. Split dough in half and flatten into a 4-inch x 8-inch rectangle, using flour as needed to reduce stickiness. For each half, spread half of the melted margarine onto dough and sprinkle with half of the cinnamon sugar mixture. Roll each half of dough into a long tubular shape and cut into mini rolls (cutting approximately every 1-1/2-inch) place mini rolls into a non stick pan, and repeat above steps with second half of dough.
4. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 9 to 12 minutes.
5. Icing: Blend sugar until it is powdery. Add nondairy milk and vanilla extract. Pour icing onto rolls immediately after taking them out of the oven.

These are delicious and sweet! Helped my cinnamon craving


These are so good I could cry. I made them for the first time, (followed the recipe exactly) for my newly vegan boyfriend and we LOVED them. I've never even made cinnamon rolls before. So thank you for the easy to follow directions and great treat!

P.S. next time I'm gonna add some chopped up carmelized pecans


I just finished making these with my 2 year old daughter - I think they are actually made more mess than anything we've made so far and next time we make them I'm just going to relax, accept the mess and let her go wild!!

These are AWESOME.  I've never actually had a cinnamon roll so wasn't sure what to expect but they looked yummy and my daughter had requested using the rolling pin and cooking with apple so I thought these were perfect.

I added a grated apple to the cinnamon mix at my daughters request and only 1tbsp of cinnamon as we didn't have anymore.  I actually wouldn't want to put more in and next time may put in more apple but push out some of the moisture.

Cooking with my little one did make the presentation suffer and we ended up 'splatting' the second half, just squishing them so they looked more like a danish pastry.

Oh, I didn't have any yeast but reading comments this seemed to be okay, I did add an extra tsp of baking powder to try and make up for it.  We did the icing as directed and it worked perfectly, I do need to mop the floor now though!!

I'd also like to add these must be awesome as they're the first non chocolate thing I've made with my little girl that she's actually eaten - she also asked for more! You rock!


Reeeaaaallllyyyy good =) We just made the rolls not the icing yet =P Instead we put some agave nectar on top =) delicious  :D


My dough was extremely sticky I had to add a considerable amount of additional flour. They turned out just ok I felt, they weren't bad but they didn't leave me craving more. Too bad it seems like a lot of other people had good luck with it.


This is a great recipe.  I did change it a bit.  When it came to the yeast, I dissolved it in 1 tbsp of sugar and 1/4 cup of warm water.  I let it activate for about 10 minutes then added the 1tbsp of sunflower oil and 1/2 cup of rice milk.  I then mixed the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients.  I then kneaded it for a couple of minutes and set it in a warm place for about 15 minutes.  Everything else I did the same.  They came out really, really well.  Mini cinnamon rolls that you would get at an expensive coffee shop  :winksmile:


I made these and they were really good but the dough was so gooey and it like i guess kinda of blobbed when i rolled it into the cinnamon roll log
And then when i cut it it was like cutting melted putty
Idk if i put in enough flour or what=/
And the icing didnt turn out either
It was brown and i'm thinking of trying a different icing
BUT they were delicious i just wish they would've formed more like cinnamon rolls


;)b  these are the BEST cinnamon rolls i have ever had!  i ate 4 right after icing (they are  mini, so i'm telling myself that makes it ok)!  following a previous suggestion, i made extra cinnamon/sugar mixture and extra icing.  so tasty, quick, and easy to make.  this is the recipe i will always use to make cinnamon rolls in the future.


Yummy!  ;)b

These were not exactly what I wanted but I got something my husband and I both loved - so it worked out. I prefer big cinnamon rolls but little ones are fun too. I used 1/2 white and 1/2 ww pastry flour and it created rolls that were more "hearty" and a bit crumbly compared to the doughy ones I grew up with. These were especially good with vanilla glaze. These won't be around much longer.


i made these in less than 40 minutes from start to finish :O .when you said mix the dry ingredients i mixed in the sugar and cinnamon but then i kept reading the recipe and realised it was supposed to be for the filling  ???  anyways i added some more cinnamon and sugar inside and these turned out really cinnamony but i guess thats my mistake opps i thought these were really good but they were a bit too gooey I'll add some flour to mixture next time.i still think i would do these again but i think I'll do it right next time and I'm thinking of adding cocoa powder inside to make chocolate rolls (now that would be yummy)
all in all this was a good recipe
