These vegan cinnamon rolls live up to the title of the book they come from: “Epic Vegan” is full of deliciously over-the-top treats that are totally free of animal products. This recipe for ooey-gooey cinnamon buns with vegan cream cheese frosting is like the best Cinnabon you’ve ever had, but completely plant-based.
Tips: You can make your own flax meal (or flaxseed meal) by briefly blitzing flax seeds to a powder in a blender, spice grinder, or small food processor; don’t over-process. If you’re new to yeasted dough, see our beginner’s tips for baking with yeast.
Variations: There are several easy ways to upgrade cinnamon rolls (store-bought or homemade); one that the author recommends is to sprinkle ¾ cup Quinoa Bacon Bits over the cinnamon-sugar spread before rolling up the dough. Sprinkle another ¼ cup over the rolls once they’ve been iced.
