Bite Sized Cinnamon Rolls

Ingredients, 20 Servings (20 mini rolls)

  • 1-1/4 cup gluten free all purpose or whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1-1/2 tsp brown sugar, unpacked
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4  tsp salt
  • 3/4 cup vegan buttermilk (you can use regular buttermilk too)
  • 1 tbsp organic coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, unpacked
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 100% olive oil cooking spray

Ingredients for icing (Optional)

  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-1/2 tsp non-dairy milk or skim milk
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract


Preheat your oven to 375F, spray oil generously on a mini muffin tin.⁠⁠ To make dough: mix brown sugar, baking powder & salt in a medium bowl. Combine with flour, mix until combined. Gradually stir buttermilk into the mixture + gently fold until dough forms. ⁠Pro tip: You may need to get your hands in there to fully complete the dough-making process. Give your hands a little run under the sink to prevent sticky fingers! ⁠⁠

Flour your countertop & rolling pin to prevent the dough from sticking.⁠ Roll out the dough into a large rectangle, about 1/4 – 1/3 inch thick. (Only add additional flour if necessary to prevent sticking as too much flour may make the buns dry – and who wants dry buns?!)⁠⁠ Melt the coconut oil in the microwave for 30 seconds (we recommend placing a paper towel over the bowl to prevent splattering). Evenly spread the oil over the entire top of the dough. If you have excess oil, don’t use it! ⁠⁠

In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over the dough – again, if you have extra, don’t need it!⁠⁠ Gently roll the dough into a log & cut into 20 equal pieces. Carefully place each cinnamon roll into the prepared tin and bake for 10-15 minutes. Keep your oven light on to check if slightly browned on top. ⁠⁠ Allow them to set & cool for 5 – 10 minutes before gently glossing the rolls (if desired) with the icing! Enjoy!⁠⁠
