Thanks for the recipe. I have never made any kind of cinnamon rolls before, but it's a family tradition for Christmas and since I went vegan... I thought I'd give these a shot. My brother had his wife make a regular recipe and these were preferred over the "regular" ones (he didn't sample mine). My mother-in-law let me know today that when I make them again, she'll help me eat them and that was after tasting it when it was 2 days old! I did not use your icing recipe, but the cinammon rolls came out perfect and my neighbor just asked for the link to the recipe.

I'm leaving it to prove now and so far, I'm not convinced. The dough is very heavy and hard to work with. My poor KitchenAid was groaning. I really prefer a much lighter dough, but perhaps I need to follow some of the advice here (egg replacer, adding ingredients in different order).

So disappointed, didn't turn out very good :( Once they were baked it was like they didn't cook all the way thru, so I put them in for a few more minutes. I'm thinking the yeast didn't active properly. I haven't made anything with yeast for many years but I thought you had to first mix the yeast with warm water and then add to the flour? Thoughts?

These were fantastic! I made a substitute of the equivalent of 2 eggs worth of egg replacer. I made the dough in my bread machine for the first rise, wet ingredients first, then flour, then yeast on top. Came out perfect! I also omitted the nuts and raisins as we're just not big fans. In the filling, I added a tablespoon of tapioca flour after reading other reviews that the filling leaks out a lot, and I used half the maple syrup. The filling was hard to spread but it seemed to help things stay inside! Lovely flavour, next time I will be adding even more cinnamon though. This is a keeper, my family had no idea it was vegan and I'm making these for our Christmas morning treat this year! THANK YOU!

Wonderful! I just brought these to a potluck and they were a hit! I made them half whole wheat and made a different icing recipe due to ingredients I had on hand. I also made the dough in my bread machine. I've already emailed someone a link to the recipe and I will definitely make these again!

Wow! This is my first time making cinnamon buns and this is superb! I didn't have flax meal so I used an egg replacer. Turned out great! So moist and chewy! Delicious!

Amazing.. Best I've ever had even on day 2. My husband and son are not vegan like myself of my daughter and LOVED them. It's a great recipe and I've had no problems what so ever during baking.
Mattie, thank you so much. I've now tried 4 of your recipes and they all have been great!

These sure looked magnificent, but I was disappointed in a couple of aspects. The dough is excellent. When I made the filling, there was nowhere near enough to cover the rectangle. (I was following your instructions precisely, so I measured the dough to 16x20) My solution was to bulk it up with more 'butter.' I also added more cinnamon, 2.5 tsp seemed light. I carefully covered the surface, though I recommend using a rubber scraper or an offset spatula rather than spoon. Anyhooo. I baked them in a metal pan lined with a silicone sheet. I usually stay away from glass as it's a poor conductor of heat, and I wasn't worried about even cooking because I was using the convection setting in my oven. They came out looking incredible. I used a reduced amount of coconut oil in the frosting (I was low having just made some vegan butter :) ) and was glad of that because I prefer a less viscous result from using just the milk.
The thing was, when we dug into them, there was virtually no filling inside. It had either been absorbed somehow or leached out. There were in fact puddles of caramel on the silicone sheet. That said, my husband thought they were delicious, and they were really good. Next time I think I would actually cut back on the butter in the filling. Do you think that might keep the filling from sliding out?
Thanks!

Thanks so much for your input Andrea! I've updated the recipe to call for a dough scraper or spatula to spread the filling onto the dough because it would work better than the back of a spoon.

The filling is on the scant side of things in these cinnamon rolls because if you add more it tends to do exactly what happened in your experience- to drain out during baking and caramelize at the bottom of the pan, gluing the cinnamon rolls to the bottom (in the absence of a silicone baking mat of course). I'll definitely make these again and see if I can increase the filling to the point of where the maximum amount can be added before it drains out. I'm having the exact same issue on a sticky bun recipe I'm currently working on.

Perhaps adding something in the filling such as arrowroot or tapioca starch would thicken it up during baking before it can slide out? If you get a chance to play with this before I do, please report back with your results! My goal is to make this Cinnamon Roll recipe the best, this side of vegan!

Thanks again for taking the time to write such a detailed review!

Made these rolls today. They are pretty time consuming, but SO worth the work! I did use 3 cups all-purpose flour and 1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour, and they turned out just fine. I will continue to add a bit more whole wheat flour each time I make them, so I won't feel quite so guilty eating them! The frosting will be my new "go to" frosting, as I really like the taste the coconut oil gives it.

So glad you liked these Sue! I love how a little bit of coconut oil can really deepen the flavor of vegan desserts. It's our 'butter'. Please report back and let everyone know how far you get with the white whole wheat flour substitution. It would be great to find out!

These were unbelievable! I have never made anything like this before. As I transition into vegan foods, I have found myself experimenting with cooking and baking more. My omnivore husband and in-laws all gave me the thumbs up, and said, quote, "this recipe is a keeper, you can make them for us again anytime!"

Here are a few slight tweaks I made to the recipe...
I only had one packet of active dry yeast. A packet = 2 1/4 tsp, so my recipe was 1/4 tsp short.
I cut the salt in the dough to a 1/2 tsp.
I added a 1/4 cup of walnut chips into the filling.
I only sprinkled walnuts on the top; no raisins.
I was confused for a short period of time on step #8, and then finally decided that the instructions to preheat the oven was supposed to be before step #10, after the rolls rose for the second hour.

Thank you Mattie for continuing to provide delicious options to wonderful treats. You make becoming a vegan more palatable :-)

In the recipe I indicate to preheat the oven on Step 8 so it's heated and ready to go by the time the recipe is ready for baking. If I put the preheat instructions on Step 10 the dough would probably rise too much and time would be wasted waiting for the oven to get to the proper temperature. Let me know if I should word this better in my recipes. I know this can be kind of confusing and take a couple of reads so you don't actually put the rolls in the oven at Step 8;)

So happy these worked out for you Birgitta!

Being my first attempt at cinnamon rolls, vegan or otherwise, I was a little nervous. I used to think they were hard to make and that I should leave it to the experts. Oh my gosh have I changed my mind! These are perfect! My non-vegan husband told me they are the best cinnamon rolls he's ever had, and that they rival his mom's. The problem is now I can't stay out of them! :)

This recipe turned out to be delicious! It is definitely worth all the rising time, because it is much better than yeastless vegan cinnamon rolls. I used a ruler to make sure the dough was rolled as thin as directed, and I got about 10 cinnamon rolls. I put them in a round pie pan, however, next time I will use a larger pan, or more than one pan, because the filling bubbled over and made my kitchen smoky.

Wow, Mattie. My hat is off to you! This cinnamon roll recipe is amazing, despite my changes to it. I'm not vegan (I'm married to a Frenchman and getting a Frenchman to give up cheese is a sacrilege, so we eat dairy) but my son is allergic to eggs, and I wanted a special cinnamon roll breakfast for my guys on Christmas morning.

I followed your recipe but used regular butter because that's what we have at our house. I also cheated and used the dough cycle on my bread machine.

Additionally, I put them together on Christmas Eve, then refrigerated them in the glass baking dish overnight. The next morning, I put the cold dish in my oven on the warming setting and then started it so the glass would warm up gradually as the oven warmed up. It did take them an hour to rise after being refrigerated all night. I took them out when I preheated the oven, and baked them according to your directions.

They were absolutely delicious. I can't believe how well they worked, so thank you, Mattie!
