  • 2 tsp Baking powder

  • ¼ Cup Plant-Based Butter Melted
  • 1 Cup Non-dairy milk
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Cinnamon Roll Filling

  • ½ Cup Brown Sugar
  • ½ Cup White Sugar
  • 2 Tsp Cinnamon
  • ¼ Cup Plant-based Butter Softened and spreadable

Cinnamon Roll Icing

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 tbsp Non-dairy milk add one tablespoon at a time


  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Lightly grease a medium-sized baking dish with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  • Prepare your baking station by generously dusting a clean surface area with gluten-free flour. I prefer to use wax paper rather than dusting my countertop or kitchen table with flour.

Making Cinnamon Roll Dough

  • Making your cinnamon roll dough is fairly simple, it's just important that you give your dough time to rise.
    In a small bowl combine milk, melted butter, maple syrup, and salt. 
    Sprinkle baking powder over the top of the wet mixture, then whisk together.
    Baking powder will forth a tiny bit. Set aside for 10 minutes.
    Slowly add in gluten-free flour and mix well. Using your hands, form the dough into a large ball and place it back in the bowl.
    Cover the bowl with a kitchen towel or loosely with plastic wrap. Allow your dough to sit, unbothered for 30 minutes.

Making Cinnamon Roll Filling

  • Brush dough with softened butter and sprinkle with sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon filling mixture.

Cinnamon Roll Icing

  • Combine powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla. Stir until think and creamy.

Preparing Cinnamon Rolls

  • Once your dough has set for 30 minutes, flour a rolling pin and roll the dough into a 1/4 inch square or circle.
    Brush dough with softened butter and sprinkle with filling mixture.
    Starting on the long end, roll the dough up tightly like a jelly roll and brush with any remaining butter.
    Next, slice the roll into eight slices and add the rolls to your greased baking dish (close but not touching).
    Cover your cinnamon rolls with a kitchen towel or loose plastic wrap and allow to sit for 30 minutes.
    Bake your homemade cinnamon rolls for 35 minutes at 350 degrees. Add icing to warm cinnamon rolls.
