Apple Cinnamon Rolls

Vegan Apple Cinnamon Rolls

I'm working on a new ecookbook for the holidays and I just had to preview this recipe from the book. If you love cinnamon rolls and apples this will definitely become your new favorite recipe.

All you need is:

The Dough:

1/4 Cup of Oil (I used Grapeseed you can always use whatever oil or butter substitute you have)

1 Cup of Almond Milk (warm)

1 Tsp of Vanilla Extract

1/3 Cup of White Sugar

1 Tsp of Cinnamon

1 Pkg of Active Yeast

3 Cups of All Purpose Flour

1/8 Tsp of Salt

The Filling:

1/4 Cup of Brown Sugar

1 Tsp of Cinnamon

1/2 Tsp of Pumpkin Pie Spice

3 Tbs of Oil or butter substitiute

2 Granny Smith Apples Peeled Diced

The Frosting:

1 Cup of Confectioners Sugar

1-1/2 - 2 Tbs of Almond Milk

1 Tsp of Vanilla Extract


Preheat oven to 375*

In a large bowl combine warm almond milk, oil, vanilla extract, sugar, salt, cinnamon and yeast and mix well. Set bowl in a warm place for 4-5 minutes. Next gradually stir in flour until a ball of dough forms (about 1/2 a cup at a time). Move dough to a lightly floured surface and using floured hands begin to knead the dough for 5-6 minutes until smooth. *The dough should spring back after pressing it with your fingers. If the dough is too sticky gradually add more flour 1 tablespoon at a time. Place dough into a clean bowl and cover with a kitchen towel and set in a warm place for about 1 hour. The dough should double in size.

While waiting for the dough to rise prepare the filling by mixing brown sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and oil into a medium sized bowl and set aside. Next peel and dice 2 granny smith apples. *Dice them as small as you can.

Next mix the frosting by combining confectioners sugar, vanilla and almond milk into a small bowl and stir until smooth and set aside.

Next place the dough onto a lightly floured surface an knead for 2-3 minutes. Then roll the dough out into a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick. Then sprinkle on the filling in an even layer and add the diced apples on top. Tightly roll the dough and cut into 3 inch wide rolls. Place the rolls into a lightly greased casserole dish and bake for 20-25 minutes. Allow rolls to cool for 10-15 minutes before frosting.
