Cooking Time



For the dough

  • 1 1/2 cup oat milk
  • 1/2 cup coconut sugar (or sub with cane sugar)
  • 1/2 cup plant-based butter
  • 2 1/4 teaspoon dry yeast
  • 2 1/2 cups pizza flour
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt (optional)

Cinnamon paste

  • 2/3 cup plant-based butter (room temperature)
  • 3 tablespoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon cardamom
  • 3/4 cup coconut sugar


  1. Heat up the oat milk, sugar and butter in a pan. Don’t boil it, just make sure the butter is melted and sugar is dissolved and set aside.
  2. Mix the dry yeast with both the pizza flour and all purpose flour and add cinnamon and salt.
  3. Mix the liquid and flour together and kneed the dough for 5 minutes to get some gluten in there! The texture should be like bread dough, but a little stickier. Add more flour if necessary. Add the dough to a clean bowl and place a towel over it.
  4. Let rise for 1 hour.
  5. Meanwhile make the cinnamon paste. Cut the butter in small pieces and mix them together with the other ingredients. Use your hands to kneed it to a paste that is spreadable.
  6. Preheat the oven to 430ºF.
  7. Line a baking tray with baking paper or a reusable mat. Take the dough out of the bowl and slam it a few times. Flatten out the dough to make a square and add a thick layer of cinnamon paste. Fold the dough in half. Cut 12 pieces sideways. Take one of the pieces and cut a horizontal line in the middle but leave about a centimeter. Twists these two parts and fold them together into a knot. Repeat with the other 11 pieces and add them to the baking tray. They will grow, so give them a little room (look at the pictures below for some visual guidance).
  8. Place them in the oven for 15-17 minutes and enjoy (the sugar get's really hot, so don't eat them straight away).
