What you will need to make this recipe

Dough Ingredients

  • flour: I used all purpose flour for this recipe. I also tried it with whole wheat flour, but I find that the texture is much better with all purpose flour. If you are gluten free, you can use a gluten free 1:1 baking flour. A good one is this one by Bob’s Red Mill.
  • baking powder
  • sugar: any granulated sugar will work. I used coconut.
  • dash of salt
  • dairy free milk: any dairy free milk will work for this recipe. I like soy or oat.
  • melted coconut oil: melt the coconut oil in the microwave for a few seconds before adding it to the batter.
  • vanilla

Filling Ingredients

  • coconut sugar: you can use another sugar if you’d like, but I love the taste of coconut sugar and I like that it has a lower glycemic index than other sugars.
  • cinnamon
  • melted coconut oil: to brush onto the cinnamon roll. You can also use vegan butter if you prefer.

Frosting Ingredients

  • vegan cream cheese: the cream cheese frosting is one of my favorite parts of the roll! Here are some vegan cream cheese brands that I like: Kite Hill, Nature’s Fynd, Daiya.
  • sugar (I used powdered)- for the frosting I used powdered sugar so that the frosting looks white and because the fine texture of the powdered sugar mixes easily with the cream cheese. You can use another sugar or even maple syrup.
  • dash of vanilla
  • dash of salt

How to make this small batch cinnamon roll

To a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, milk, oil, and vanilla. Mix them well.

Place a small amount of flour on a large cutting board and spread the flour around. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough in a long rectangular shape.

Coat the rolled out dough with a thin layer of coconut oil, then sprinkle on the cinnamon and sugar.

Roll up the dough into the shape of your cinnamon roll.

Place the roll in an oven safe dish. I baked mine in a small ramekin.

Bake the roll for about 15 minutes at 350F/ 175C.

While the cinnamon roll is baking, create the frosting. To a small bowl, combine the cream cheese, sugar, vanilla and salt and mix them well.

Once the roll is done baking and has cooled off, top it with the frosting and dig in😋

This recipe makes for 1 cinnamon roll. If you want to make a larger batch, you can double or triple the recipe by clicking the “x2” or “x3” buttons in the recipe card. You can make each roll in a separate bowl, or combine all the rolls in one larger bowl.
