When I was little, my mom baked A LOT. I have so many memories of the things she would make because I loved almost all of them.
One of the best things she would make was cinnamon rolls. She didn’t make them very often, but when she did, they wouldn’t last long. They were everyone’s favourite.
Just like these easy vegan cinnamon rolls are a favourite in my home today.
Vegan Cinnamon Rolls Are Perfect for ALL Occasions!
Whether you’re hosting a breakfast or brunch, having people over for the holidays or you just want to make a special treat for snacking on with tea or coffee throughout the week, these rolls are perfect…for ALL of those things.
Not to say that these aren’t fancy, because look at that picture above…that’s pretty fancy looking!
What I mean is that if you’re looking for a basic but delicious and fluffy vegan cinnamon roll recipe, then this is the one for you.
How Do You Make Vegan Cinnamon Rolls?
You may look at the directions for the recipe and think: but there are so many steps! This can’t be easy! Why is this recipe even called easy vegan cinnamon rolls?!
Don’t let the steps intimidate you. It may seem like a lot of steps, but once you make the recipe, you’ll see that all of the steps go by quickly and they’re easy. (And even if there were 50 steps, these vegan cinnamon rolls are so worth it!)
(That picture above is the rolls after they have risen and right before they’re about to go into the oven.)
I like to add raisins to my cinnamon rolls, but I know most people don’t like them.
The raisins are totally optional but if you do want to add them, I’ve included instructions on when to add them.
Do you like raisins in your cinnamon rolls?
Which brings me to your next option for this recipe…
Vegan Cinnamon Rolls with Icing? Or Without?
I don’t usually put icing on my cinnamon rolls, I like them plain, and they’re tasty as-is, but I’ve included icing with this recipe because that’s the way my kids like them best and I know this is how many of you like them, too!
BUT, if you’re like me and you don’t want the icing, then it’s perfectly fine to leave it out.
When I do add icing, I prefer to add it to the vegan cinnamon buns individually as I’m serving them, rather than slathering it over the entire batch.
I like doing it this way because it gives everyone the option of with or without. I also do it this way because I don’t usually serve all 12 at once. When I serve the leftovers, I can warm them up individually and then add icing or serve them without.
It’s nice to have the choice!
I also make these rolls with a little coconut oil and without vegan butter, and of course, no dairy, no eggs…to keep the cinnamon rolls recipe vegan.
Something else that’s great about these rolls is that you can make them the night before and store them in the refrigerator overnight and have a fresh batch first thing in the morning. How amazing does that sound?!
