Cinnamon Buns Recipe

Servings: 6



Sweet and delicious! Fat-free, whole wheat and 100% vegan. It doesn't get much better than that does it?


  • ¾ cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 packet active yeast
  • 3 cups whole wheat pastry flour (use all purpose or white pastry flour if you are on a fiber free diet)
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • ¼ cup raw sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 6 tbsp unsweetened applesauce (I used my homemade apple butter because I have a lot of it on hand) (if your are fiber free make sure it is pureed well!)
  • 4 tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 tbsp raisins (optional) (or dairy free chocolate chips!)
  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 1 tsp non-dairy milk


Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a circula

r cake pan and set aside.

Gently warm 3/4 cup non-dairy milk to about 110 degrees.

Sprinkle yeast over warmed non-dairy milk and let it dissolve, about 5 minutes.

Combine 2 cups of flour, 1/4 cup sugar, baking powder, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 salt in a large bowl. Add 5 tbsp applesauce and yeast mixture, stirring sp

atula to combine.

Add in another 1/2 cup flour, stirring to combine.

Sprinkle remaining flour on a flat surface and knead dough, kneading in most of the flour. Knead about 15-20 times.

Using a floured rolling pin, roll dough out into large, thin rectangle and set aside.

Prepare filling by combining 4 tbsp brown sugar with 1 tbsp unsweetened applesauce, 1 tsp cinnamon and raisins if using. (or chocolate chips!)

Spoon filling in the center of the dough and spread it around, leaving 1" edge clear. Gently but tightly roll the dough up.

Use a pizza cutter, sharp knife or string to cut off 6 rolls and place into prepared cake pan and bake 20 to 25 minutes, until golden and cooked through.

Meanwhile, prepare icing by mixing 1 cup confectioners’ sugar with 1 tsp non-dairy milk (plain or vanilla), whipping until it becomes a thick glaze with no sugar chunks.
