These cinnamon roll cookies have the perfect texture. They are soft, pillowy, and moist. They have hints of cinnamon sugar swirled throughout and of course, drizzled with a traditional powdered sugar icing.

Cooking Time



For the Cinnamon Roll Cookies:

  • 1/2 cup vegan butter
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/4 cup applesauce
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

For the Cinnamon Sugar Filling:

  • 2 tablespoons melted vegan butter
  • 5 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  2. To a large mixing bowl, use a handheld mixer to cream together sugars and butter until smooth. Mix in applesauce and vanilla. Add flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Combine until a soft dough forms. Form dough into a smooth ball and place on top of a piece of parchment paper. Using a rolling pin, roll into a 10×11" rectangle.
  3. Make the cinnamon sugar filling by combining all ingredients in a small bowl until a smooth paste forms. Spread filling into the middle third of the rectangle. Take the edges of the parchment paper to prevent sticking and roll dough into a tight log. Cut into 1" portions.
  4. Roll each portion into a smooth ball then place on the prepared baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes. Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack.
  5. Once cookies have cooled, drizzle with icing (powdered sugar + water until desired consistency).
