Sticky Maple Glazed Cinnamon Raisins Rolls [Vegan]

This Recipe is :

Dairy Free Vegan




To Make the Dough:

  • 1 tablespoon flax meal
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 3/4 cup almond or soy milk, lightly warmed, but not too hot!
  • 1 package yeast (2 1/4 teaspoons)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour (plus more for rolling out dough)
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • Olive oil for brushing

To Make the Filling:

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon

To Make the Icing:

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons almond or soy milk
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  1. In a small bowl mix together flax meal and water and set aside.
  2. In another bowl, stir together warmed milk, yeast, and sugar. Let mixture sit for 10-15 minutes or until bubbly and frothy. Once the yeast is activated, stir in melted coconut oil, flax meal mixture, salt, and whole wheat pastry flour. Stir until well combined.
  3. Slowly add all-purpose flour 1/4 cup at a time. Add flour until dough is soft, but not too sticky. The dough should be easy to work with without sticking to hands. Add raisins and knead for around 5 minutes in the bowl if large enough or on a floured surface.
  4. Once the dough is ready, form a ball, brush top with olive oil and cover with plastic wrap. Place in a warm area. Let sit for 1 hour or longer if needed. The dough should rise and become airy.
  5. When the dough is almost ready, prepare filling ingredients by mixing together melted coconut oil, brown sugar, and cinnamon in a small bowl. Spray an 8-inch cake pan with cooking spray or lightly oil and set aside.
  6. Once the dough has risen, roll out on a floured surface into a 8×12-inch rectangle. Evenly sprinkle filling mixture onto rectangle. Roll up the dough the long way until you have a log shape. Cut into 10 rolls and place in prepared cake pan. Cover cake pan and let the dough rise again for another hour.
  7. Preheat oven to 350°F. Once dough has risen, bake for 15 minutes or until lightly golden and firm. Let cool.
  8. To make glaze, whisk together milk, powdered sugar, maple syrup and vanilla. Drizzle on top of cinnamon rolls.
  9. Serve warm and enjoy!
