Reminder, this is my recipe for both vegan and gluten free cinnamon rolls. If you are not using gluten free flour and will be using regular all-purpose flour, please scroll up for a link to my classic vegan cinnamon rolls recipe.

2

Preheat the oven to 350

3

To prepare the gluten free cinnamon roll dough, begin by mixing the melted vegan butter, xanthan gum, and non-dairy yogurt together. Mix in the almond or oat milk, maple syrup, and salt. Sprinkle the active dry yeast evenly across the top of the mixture, stir gently, and let it sit for about 10 minutes.

4

Add the gluten-free 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 30 minutes. I like to sit my bowl on top of an oven preheated to 350. The warmth from the oven helps the dough rise faster. Reminder, since these cinnamon rolls are gluten free, the dough will not be as voluminous as gluten-containing dough. But, they will be every bit as soft and delicious!

5

Roll the dough onto a well-floured surface into a 1/4 inch oval or rectangle (add more flour if the dough is too sticky to roll). Spread the softened butter to cover the dough. Evenly top with the sugar and cinnamon.

6

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 with a kitchen towel and let them rise for another 30 minutes. Bake the rolls in the oven for about 30 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!
