Ooey Gooey Cinnamon Rolls

Servings: 10 Time: 1 Hour 45 Minutes

Ingredients

Method

  • To make your dough, first melt the butter and almond milk together in a large saucepan or in a microwaveable bowl, heating in 30 second intervals. Allow the mixture to cool to 110 degrees for the best temperature for your yeast.
  • Transfer your mixture into a large mixing bowl and sprinkle in your yeast, allowing it to activate for 10 minutes. Next, add in 1 tbsp of organic cane sugar and 1/4 tsp of salt and then stir.
  • Add in your flour, 1/2 cup at a time, to your mixing bowl and stirring as you go along. Your dough will be very sticky. Once it becomes too thick to stir, transfer your dough to a lightly floured surface a knead for around a minute or so until a loose ball is formed. Be careful, you do not want to overwork your dough as this can lead to a tough and chewy cinnamon roll!
  • Rinse out your mixing bowl and coat it with a little bit of olive or avocado oil before adding your ball of dough back in. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and set it in a warm area and allow to rise for about an hour, or until the dough has doubled in size.
  • On a lightly floured surface, roll out your dough into a thin rectangle with about 1/4 inch of thickness. Brush your melted vegan butter onto the dough and top with sugar and your desired amount of cinnamon.
  • Starting from one end, begin rolling your dough into a log shape to create your spiral rolls. Take a serrated knife or unflavored string of floss and cut your log into 1.5 to 2 inch sections, placing your rolls into a buttered 8x8 inch square or circular pan. You should have about 10 rolls total.
  • Lightly brush your rolls with melted vegan butter and cover with plastic wrap, allowing the dough to rise a second time while your oven preheats to 350 degrees F (176 C.) Once your oven is hot, bake your rolls for 25-30 minutes, or until golden brown.
  • OPTIONAL TOPPING:

  • To create your frosting, simply mix 1 cup of organic powdered sugar and 1 to 2 tbsp of unsweetened almond milk or your favorite plant-based milk.
  • Once your cinnamon rolls have cooled, drizzle your frosting over them with a spoon and enjoy!
