1 hour vegan cinnamon rolls

Hello fellow foodies,

If the title doesnt draw you in I dont know what will! I mean 1 hour for delicious cinnamon rolls! I’m not vegan but this may become my new go to recipe! Still not healthy but delicious  ðŸ˜‰ I was looking to alter my own recipe until I found this one.

We were having friends over for games and I wanted a dessert everyone could enjoy. My first attempt  (pictured) was gooier than my second (today) but everyone still ate them up! I’m a huge fan now 💕

It’s so easy! 

Ingredients for dough:

  • 4 1/2 tsp rapid rise yeast (2packets)
  • 1 cup warm water 
  • 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup sugar + 2 tsp sugar*
  • 2 1/2- 3 cups flour

Ingredients for filling:

  • 2 Tbs melted coconut oil
  • 1 Tbs cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar


  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2-3 Tbs Vanilla Almond milk
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract

So first comes the dough!

 Start off putting the warm water in a bowl. Stir in the yeast and sprinkle the sugar on top. Or simply sprinkle both on top. Should only take 10min to activate. 

* I used a little more  sugar then what the original recipe called for to activate.

After the yeast is activated stir in the cocunut oil, salt, and 2 cups of flour. Add in the rest of the flour, more if desired, until dough is no longer super sticky. 

Sprinkle flour on a clean surface and knead the dough. It feels so fluffy! DON’T OVER KNEAD.

Set the dough aside in a bowl and prepare the filling. 

I doubled the recipe so I split the dough and had two seperate bowls for the oil and sugar.

Once the filling is ready roll out the dough. Roughly 12in×16in.

Spread the oil first and then the sugar evenly on top.

Once the filling is spread out roll the dough into a log.

I use a butter knife to cut the dough. This recipe yields 12 but I usually get 8.

I put all of them in a bigger pan when I first made them. 

Note: I reccomend doing two smaller pans. The ones on the edge cooked more evenly then the center ones. They were extra gooey (fine after they cooled). 

Next I preheat my oven to the lowest setting (170) and turn it off. Let the rolls rise for about 20min until they double in size.

After they rise preheat the oven to 350 and let them bake for 15-25min.

Once they’re baked prepare the frosting. Let the rolls cool and then evenly spread the frosting. 

I didnt get a chance to take a picture before everyone started eating them!

They are so simple and delicious!

Happy eating,
