Course Breakfast, Dessert, Snack
Prep Time 1 hour 30 minutes


  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose gluten-free flour
  • 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 Tbsp vegan butter
  • 1 Tbsp coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla


  • 2/3 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ cup vegan butter

Vegan Frosting (dairy free):

  • ½ cup plain vegan cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp unsweetened almond milk
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract

Classic Frosting (option with dairy):

  • 3/4 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 3 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • In a large bowl, whisk warmed almond milk, coconut sugar, melted vegan butter, and vanilla. Sprinkle yeast over top and let stand until frothy, approximately 10 minutes.

  • Add gluten-free flour and mix until fully incorporated into dough. If needed, add extra tablespoon of milk or flour to reach desired consistency.

  • On counter, cover bowl and allow dough to rise, approximately 1 hour. Note: gluten-free mixtures will not rise as much as traditional wheat flour.

  • In a small bowl, mix ground cinnamon and coconut sugar.

  • Flour cutting board or counter. Roll out dough into a large rectangle, about ½ inch thick.

  • With a knife or pizza cutter, trim edges of dough. With a basting brush, evenly spread softened vegan butter on dough.

  • Evenly sprinkle the cinnamon sugar on dough.

  • From the long side, carefully roll the dough into a log. Slice log into 10-12 round pinwheels, approximately 1” thick.

  • On a baking dish, place rolls and cover. Let rise on counter, approximately 20-30 minutes.

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Uncover and bake for about 30 minutes, or until the cinnamon rolls are golden brown.

  • In a medium bowl, add yogurt, maple syrup, and vanilla. Whisk until smooth.

  • Remove rolls from oven and allow to cool, approximately 10-15 minutes. Generously frost the rolls.
