These cinnamon rolls are ridiculously easy to make, and they have the perfect cozy flavor for the fall season!

Ingredients

Dough

  • 3⁄4 cup almond milk
  • 1⁄3 cup coconut oil or vegan butter
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 1⁄2 cups flour (regular, whole wheat or gluten free)

Cinnamon Filling

  • 1/3 cup coconut oil or vegan butter
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar
  • 3 tablespoon cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 F.
  2. Add all the ingredients for the dough into a large bowl and combine them well.
  3. Once a doughlike consistency has formed, roll the dough out on a floured surface until you create a thin rectangle.
  4. Mix the ingredients for the cinnamon filling in a separate bowl. Once combined, spread evenly over the dough.
  5. Roll the dough lengthwise into a thick log.
  6. Cut into 7 or 8 rolls and lay them swirl-side up in a baking dish.
  7. Bake for 30 minutes.
