Cooking Time



For the Buns:

  • 2 1/4 cup unbleached, all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup dark rye flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 packet rapid-rise yeast
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup non-dairy milk
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons melted vegan butter

For the Filling:

  • 1/4 teaspoon vegan butter
  • 1 cup finely chopped mix nuts and seeds (a mixture of pecans, hazelnuts, pumpkin, and sesame seeds works well)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/3 cup melted vegan butter
  • 1 cup coconut sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon

For the Maple Icing:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons non-dairy milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup


  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together flours, coconut sugar, flax, baking soda, yeast, and salt. In a stand mixer, combine milk and apple cider vinegar. Let sit for 5 min. to curdle. Whisk in melted vegan butter. With the paddle attachment, slowly add flour.
  2. Stir on low speed until a soft dough forms. Please switch to the dough hook and allow it to come together for an additional minute. Press dough together into a ball and transfer to a greased bowl. Cover with a towel to prevent it from drying out.
  3. In a small skillet, melt 1/2 teaspoon vegan butter over medium-low heat. Add chopped nuts and maple syrup. Toast for 2-3 minutes until light golden brown and nuts are aromatic. Transfer to a small bowl. Whisk together melted butter, coconut sugar, and cinnamon in a small bowl until combined. It should be a slightly runny paste.
  4. Grease an 8×8 square baking dish with vegan butter. Spread about 2 heaping tablespoons of cinnamon sugar mixture onto the bottom of the baking dish. Sprinkle over a thin layer of toasted nuts.
  5. Roll out dough to a 9×12" rectangle. Trim edges if rough. Spread over the remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture in an even layer, making sugar to get the edges. Sprinkle over toasted nuts.
  6. Carefully roll the dough into a log. Cut into 8 equal portions. Transfer rolls to the baking dish with the spiral side up. Cover with a towel and set in a warm place for an hour to rise.
  7. Preheat oven to 350°F degrees. Bake for 25 minutes until golden brown.
  8. Whisk together all icing ingredients until smooth.
  9. Serve cinnamon rolls with a generous drizzle of maple icing.
  10. Enjoy!
