1

Prepare the dough by mixing the warm almond milk, melted vegan butter, and maple syrup. Add baking powder if using. Sprinkle the active dry yeast evenly across the top of the mixture, stir gently, and let it sit for about 10 minutes. If making gluten free rolls, add the apple cider vinegar and mix.

2

Add the all-purpose flour and mix until a dough forms. Leaving the dough in the bowl, form it into a round mound and cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a kitchen towel. Allow it to sit for an hour. I like to sit my bowl on top of an oven preheated to 350. The warmth from the oven helps the dough rise faster. Note, if using gluten free all purpose flour, the dough will not rise as much.

3

After the dough has risen for an hour, on a floured surface, roll the dough into a 1/4 inch oval or rectangle (add more flour if the dough is too sticky to roll). Note, if using gluten-free flour, the dough will be slightly more dry. Spread the softened butter to cover the dough. Top with the sugar and blueberries.

4

Preheat the oven to 350.

5

Roll the dough into a log and cut it into about 10-12 pinwheels. Place the pinwheels into a baking dish so that they are close but not touching. Cover them with a towel or loose plastic wrap and set aside for another 30 minutes. Note, if your rolls are gluten free, they won't be as voluminous as rolls with gluten in them, but they'll be every bit as delicious!

6

Once the rolls have risen, remove plastic wrap and bake the rolls in the oven for about 35 minutes.

7

While the rolls are baking, make the vegan cream cheese frosting by using an electric hand mixer to mix together the softened vegan butter, powdered sugar, and vegan cream cheese. Allow the rolls to cool and spread the icing over the rolls. Enjoy!
