How to make Yeast-free Vegan Cinnamon Rolls

To start, you are going to want to preheat your oven to 350 F and prepare your baking dish by greasing it with vegan butter or non-stick cooking spray. Vegan butter works best as it will give the dough a buttery flavor while cooking.

Once your oven is preheated and your pan is prepared, you are going to start by making your dough mixture. In a large bowl, mix together, flour, baking powder, white sugar, cinnamon, and salt.

Once your dough mixture is complete, set aside.

In a small sauce pan over medium heat, melt the butter and almond milk. Watch it carefully, you want to remove it just as it melts together.

Pour this mixture into your dough and with a spatula, mix until well incorporated. A dough will start to form. Remove your dough from the bowl and place it on a floured surface. Flour your hands and start to kneed the dough until it is well incorporated. Place the dough back into the bowl and cover it with a damp towel. Let it rest for 15 minutes.

In the meantime, mix your filling in a small bowl.

After the 15 minutes are completed. Remove dough from bowl and kneed once more. Roll into a large ball and using a rolling pin, roll the dough out until it reached 10x 14. Using a knife, cut off the outer edges until a rectangle is formed.

Once your dough is rolled out, spread 1 Tbsp of melted butter evenly, then spread filling mixture until it is evenly coated.

Starting on the longer side, tightly roll the dough into a log. Using a knife, cut out 9 small portions.

Add these portions to your prepared baking dish. Bake in the oven at 350 for 25 minutes.

While the cinnamon rolls are baking, make the frosting mixture.

In small bowl, combine vegan cream cheese, melted butter, non-dairy yogurt, vanilla bean, and sifted powdered sugar.

Sifted powdered sugar is important so that you frosting does not have any clumps!

Drizzle over cinnamon rolls once they are done baking in the oven.
