Vegan Cinnamon Rolls!

Now given these aren't the prettiest of cinnamon rolls but don't be fooled these things are tasty and good for you! A win win I say!

I made a half batch which yields 6 rolls but it can easily be doubled to make more.

Recipe vegan cinnamon rolls-

1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/8 tsp instant yeast
pinch of salt
1/2 cups warm almond milk
1 1/2 tbsp agave syrup
1 tbsp of soy butter ( I used Pure dairy free butter)

1/2 tbsp of soy butter, melted
1/4 cup packed dark brown sugar
2 tbsp granulated sugar
2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp allspice
pinch of salt

Preheat oven to 180c (350f)
In a bowl combine flour, yeast and salt. Next in a microwave safe bowl mix in the milk, syrup and butter and heat till just warm to the touch (Not boiled or you'll kill the poor little yeast!). Once warmed mix into the flour until combined and kneed till smooth  (around 5 minutes) then place in a oiled bowl to rise for 1 hour or until doubled in size. While you wait for your dough mix all the ingredients together for the filling.

Once the dough has doubled in size chuck onto a floured surface and roll out into a rectangle and evenly spread your filling on. Now with floured hands roll your dough into a log and cut into 6 circles. Place in a oils dish and leave in a warm place to prove for another 30 minutes. Once doubled in size place in the oven to cook for 13 minutes.

And there you have it yummy warm vegan cinnamon rolls perfect for a raining day!
