If there is one thing I know for sure, it’s how much you all love cinnamon rolls. I have several different variations of cinnamon rolls on my blog (recipes below) but this one is a festive, holiday version that you’ll want to make for Christmas morning. These eggnog cinnamon rolls are the perfect addition to any holiday brunch or breakfast. You can even leave one out for Santa.

Plant-based eggnog for Eggnog cinnamon rolls

Ingredient Notes: 

Eggnog: For this eggnog cinnamon rolls recipe, obviously the star ingredient is the eggnog. I use Califia Farms Dairy Free Holiday Nog that is egg-less and plant-based. Their nog used real nutmeg, cloves, and ginger to deliver those holiday flavors you love in a plant-based way.

Cinnamon Icing: This isn’t just regular icing, I’ve put a cinnamon twist to it to add even more holiday flavors to these cinnamon rolls. For this icing, the cinnamon mixed with the maple syrup and brown sugar really creates a warming flavor to the icing that compliments the rolls so well.

How to make eggnog cinnamon rolls: 

  1. Into a small bowl, add 1 cup of your flour and your yeast. Stir and set aside.
  2. Into a large bowl, whisk together your water, sugar, egg replacement, salt, and butter till well combined.
  3. Into the large bowl, add your flour and yeast mixture. Whisk for around 2-3 minutes or until everything is well combined and lots of bubbles have developed. Now stir in the remainder of the flour, slowly, and add more as you need. You want it to be pliable but not too sticky. Knead for 5 minutes and add flour to the surface area to make the process easy.
  4. Grease the sides of a large bowl and add in your dough. Add oil to the top of your dough and place a damp cloth over the top of the bowl. Place in a warm place for around 45 minutes to one hour.
  5. While your dough recipes prepare your filling sauce by adding all your ingredients into a bowl and mixing till combined.
  6. You can now preheat your oven to 350F and grab a baking dish – I used a 16″L x 9″W x 2.50″H.
  7. Once your dough has risen punch a hole into the middle of the dough (this is very satisfying) and let it rise by double once again.
  8. Using a rolling pin roll out the dough into a large rectangle, around 20 X 14 X 1 but use whichever dimensions work best for you and your baking dish!
  9. Once you have a flat dough then sprinkle with your filling mixture. Roll the dough width-wise, keeping it tight, and cut it into around 12-14 rolls. Place them onto the pan and set them aside to rise till doubled in size.
  10. Once ready then bake for 25-35 minutes.
  11. To make your icing, simply add your ingredients into a deep bowl and combine using a hand whisk for around 1-2 minutes.
  12. Once your cinnamon buns are ready then spread over the icing and enjoy these babies hot!
