I have tried time and time again to make gluten-free cinnamon rolls and every time I have failed miserably. After hours of trying to figure out how to make these things grain-free and vegan (and a huge mess in my kitchen) I usually would give up and swear off cinnamon rolls forever. Then a month or so later I would try again. This cycle went on for years…until a few days ago when I stumbled upon The Minimalist Baker’s recipe for gluten-free cinnamon rolls and decided to give it a try–with motifications of course.

The Best Ever Vegan Cinnamon Rolls (gluten-free)

Yield: 8

The Best Ever Vegan Cinnamon Rolls (gluten-free)

Ingredients

    Rolls
  • 1 1/2 c gluten-free baking flour
  • 3/4 c almond flour
  • 1/4 c vegan butter, cold
  • 1 tbsp vegan butter, melted
  • 2 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 c unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 3 tbsp Granulated Zero Calorie Sweetener
    Filling
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter, melted
  • 1/4 c coconut sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  1. Place the almond milk in a microwave safe bowl and cook for 15-20 seconds or until milk is warm (about 110 degrees). Add in 1 tablespoon of the butter (melted), yeast and granulated sweetener. Whisk until smooth. Let sit for 10 minutes.
  2. Place the flours, remaining butter (cold), baking soda and baking powder into a food processor and pulse until combined. Ultimately, you cold use a pastry cutter to combine the butter and flours.
  3. Transfer to a stand alone mixer and add in the almond milk mixture. Mix until a dough forms.
  4. Roll the dough out between two pieces of plastic wrap dusted with gluten-free flour. Roll the dough out in a rectangle about 1/8 inch in thickness. Remove the top piece of plastic.
  5. Brush with butter filling and sprinkle with coconut sugar and cinnamon. Use the bottom layer of plastic to tightly roll up the dough longways. Use a sharp knife to cut the roll into 8 evenly sized pieces. Place the pieces in a 6 inch round pan or cast iron skillet prepared with non-stick spray. Cover and let sit in a warm place for 20 minutes.
  6. Preheat your oven to 350 F and bake rolls for 15-20 minutes. Rolls should start to turn golden brown. While your rolls are baking, beat together frosting ingredients until smooth.
  7. Frost rolls and serve.
