Vegan cinnamon rolls that are fluffier than a brand new pillow, packed with brown sugar and cinnamon butter then smothered in vegan cream cheese frosting!
The SOFTEST of rolls!
Vegan cinnamon rolls, and not just ANY vegan cinnamon rolls! The FLOOOFIEST of cinnamon rolls. After eating half of this entire tray, I had to donate the rest to my husband to take to work because I JUST NEEDED THEM GONE!
Cinnamon rolls have been a pretty important part of my culinary history since I first tried them at my friend’s American thanksgiving in California. There’s something so luxurious about that enriched dough which pulls apart so softly to reveal the fragrant brown sugar cinnamon mixture!
And what’s better than the frosting! It has to be cream cheese! I’ve done my best to make these vegan cinnamon rolls taste even better than the originals and I don’t think you’ll be disappointed!
Don’t be daunted by the fact that these are a yeasted dessert. They’re really super easy to make. Oh, and a top tip: instead of slicing the rolls with a knife, try using dental floss (unflavoured of course) or some very fine threat or fishing twine. Shimmy the thread under the rolled up dough and then cross the two ends over each other and pull in opposite directions to slice! Hey presto – perfect cinnamon rolls!
What do they taste like??
This recipe is unlike most vegan cinnamon rolls in that it’s not INSANELY sweet – it also doesn’t have that chemical vibe you get from SOME commercial cinnamon rolls! Ok, they’re covered in frosting, yeah, but it’s all balanced with a kick of salt and the most deliciously gentle texture. Stick a batch on tonight and your house will smell like heaven for about a week.
How long do they keep?
I’m glad you asked! Because these cinnamon rolls are yeasted, they really are best eaten within 24 hours of making them – sort of like a fresh donut! Don’t leave them to go stale – even if you’ve had your fill! Take them to a neighbour and share the love – that’s what I did!

I’ve got your back!

I love sharing my food with you – it seriously gives me so much joy! As a result, I put a huge amount of time and energy into creating these recipes. This recipe right here is my lil baby and I wouldn’t change a single thing about it.

But seriously, if this recipe doesn’t do it for you and you want to customise it – that’s cool – no probs. Put that finely honed chef’s intuition to good use and tailor the recipe to suit you! Regardless of whether you make any changes or not, let us know how you get on in the comments below.
