One word to describe these homemade vegan cinnamon rolls: A-mazing! Don’t be fooled, these classic mouthwatering swirls of cinnamon are much easier to make than you think!
Hello, friends! I hope you all are doin’ swell. And to all my ‘mericans out there, I hope you had an awesome Memorial Day. I’m starting to feel like I say this every week, but I am seriously so excited to share this recipe with you!
I am going to start off by saying that cinnamon rolls make me feel some type of way. I am 10000% a cinnamon roll fiend. Always have been, and I’m preeeetty confident I always will be. Just sayin’. I am a cinnamoner for life.
If you haven’t yet read about my obsession with cinnamon, check out my Vegan Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe to get the inside scoop. Cinnamon to me is like Frank’s Red Hot to the old lady in all the commercials. I put that sh*t on everything. I swear. I keep a stash of it in my lunch bag and I always have a giant container of it in my pantry. I’m hooked.
So when it comes to cinnamon rolls, count me in! But of course, like so many other treats, what’s commercially available in the realm of cinnamon rolls is just not up to par. Yeah, you taste good, but why the hell do you contain 15000 and 1 ingredients? And goooood luck finding a dairy free version, let alone a vegan one. I feel like a broken record saying this over and over again, but it’s so true! Le sigh.
These, though. These are absolutely fudging amazing. And simple, too! Who woulda thought. I know for me, time and effort were definitely factors that kept me off of and far far away from the homemade cinnamon roll making train for a very long time. Let me tell you, this is pretty much the best train, ever. If you love/like/thoroughly enjoy cinnamon rolls, all aboard!
We’re heading to the land of pure bliss, aka Cinnamon Deliciousness, folks.
The thing about this recipe that is most awesome sauce is how easy it is. There is no leaving to rise for forever, then cutting into rolls and leaving to rise for forever again, this is a simple 1-hour riser. I am by no means a pro when it comes to yeast based baking – lets just say I’ve had a lot of “is this sh*t even ALIVE??” moments – so if I can pull this off, you definitely can. You got this!
Mix, let rise, fill, cut, and bake. That is all. Then out come these beauties. They are ridiculously soft (no really, it’s ridiculous), have the perfect amount of chew, and are filled with ooey gooey cinnamony goodness. And since most of the prep time is for dough rising time, these really don’t require much time at all. Score! Easy, fast, and delicious. Oh, AND vegan. Double score!
Now please excuse me as I drown myself in these cinnamon rolls. I recommend you do the same!
