Vegan Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls
30 seconds. That’s how little time it took me to devour one of these soft, fluffy and oh-so delicious vegan chocolate cinnamon rolls right after taking pictures.
By the way, these rolls are filled with homemade chocolate spread and don’t contain any cinnamon, but I guess we call them cinnamon rolls anyway? I have no idea, but oh well.
Back to the recipe!
The Easiest Oil-Free Vegan Cinnamon Rolls
Yes, these chocolate cinnamon rolls are completely oil-free (and refined sugar-free as well)!
I like to avoid using oil in my recipes so I’m really happy that they don’t contain any and that they still turned out soft and fluffy. Instead of oil, I used full-fat canned coconut milk which really helped give them a fluffy texture.
How to Make Vegan Cinnamon Rolls:
- Make the dough.
- Let it rise.
- Knead, roll out and assemble.
- Roll and cut.
- Let the dough rise again.
That’s basically it 🙂
No, making vegan cinnamon rolls is neither hard nor impossible, it just takes a bit of time because you want to let the dough rise twice in order to end up with soft and fluffy rolls. Everybody can make vegan cinnamon rolls, it’s really not hard at all.
How to Slice the Cinnamon Rolls:
Even a sharp knife might end up smashing your roll instead of cutting it.
So if you want nice, round and fluffy rolls, I highly recommend you to use a floss or a thread to cut them. Place the thread or the floss under the roll, take the two ends as if you were going to tie a knot and pull them in one fluid movement. This way, you end up with pretty cinnamon rolls.
Can I Use Gluten-Free Flour?
Although I haven’t tried this recipe with gluten-free flour, I would not recommend you to try it as the cinnamon rolls may turn out quite dry. This recipe definitely calls for regular flour.
However, keep in mind that I will be creating a gluten-free recipe for vegan cinnamon rolls in the future so stay tuned!
How Do I Store these Vegan Cinnamon Rolls?
These vegan cinnamon rolls taste best when they are freshly baked, but you can store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for a few days. Keep in mind that they will dry a bit, but you can reheat them in the oven to soften them.
Can I Freeze these Cinnamon Rolls?
Yes, you can! You can freeze them before or after baking.
If freezing before baking, first place them on a plate and make sure they don’t touch each other. Freeze for 2 hours and then place them in a freezer bag. This way, they won’t stick to each other.
If freezing after baking, let them thaw and place them back in the oven for a few minutes before serving.
I hope you guys will love these Vegan Chocolate Cinnamon Rolls! They are:
- Easy to make
- Oil-free and refined sugar-free
- Soft and fluffy
- Filled with homemade chocolate spread
- Oh-so delicious!
Have fun baking!
