A breakfast that everyone will remember

Everyone loves cinnamon rolls. It reminds me of my childhood when my mom would take me to the mall and I’d beg her to get my a cinnamon roll from one of the stands. But i’ve never thought about making my own. Why? Well, I always thought the process of working with dough requires a lot of time and effort. Was it really worth it?

To my surprise, YES! So worth it but also, this recipes doesn’t require a lot of time or effort. A win win in my book! This recipe is similar to my original recipe that was adapted from Just A Taste, but this time I added a fun little twist with sprinkles!

Funfetti Vegan Cinnamon Rolls are a delicious twist on the classic cinnamon roll. These sweet treats are made with flour, vegan butter, coconut sugar and cinnamon. These are also yeast-free so you can ditch the long wait and get straight to the good stuff!

Ingredients

  • Dough
  • 2 cups all purpose flour

  • 2 Tbsp + 1 tsp baking powder

  • 3 Tbsp sugar

  • 1 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/4 tsp salt

  • 1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles

  • 3/4 cup almond milk

  • 3 Tbsp vegan butter

  • Filling
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar

  • 3 Tbsp cinnamon

  • 3 Tbsp melted vegan butter

  • Frosting
  • 1 Tbsp vegan butter

  • 1/4 cup non-dairy yogurt

  • 1 tsp vanilla bean or vanilla extract

  • 3/4 cup powdered sugar, sifted

Directions

  • 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.
  • In a large bowl, mix together, flour, baking powder, white sugar, cinnamon, sprinkles 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 by combining coconut sugar, ground cinnamon, and vegan butter and whisking until well combined.

  • 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 by combining vegan cream cheese, melted butter, non-dairy yogurt, vanilla bean, and sifted powdered sugar in a small bowl.

  • Drizzle over cinnamon rolls once they are done baking in the oven and ENJOY!
