I’ve done it again!! Not to brag or anything, but I think I make pretty bomb cinnamon rolls. I love the spice that the cinnamon adds, combined with the ooey, gooey icing. Cinnamon rolls are serious comfort food. They are so warming on a brisk fall day. This recipe for a Vegan Cinnamon Bun Bread is a unique twist to your typical cinnamon rolls. This is not only easier, but it looks beautiful and tastes amazing.
Why you’ll love this Vegan Cinnamon Bun Bread:
What’s not to love about cinnamon buns?
It’s easy to make and easier than making rolls
It is vegan-friendly
It’ll make your whole house smell like heaven
Can be made with simple ingredients
What is the best vegan milk for baking?
There are so many vegan milk options out there these days, and it can be hard to know what’s best to bake with. For me, I love using oat milk. It’s creamy, better for the environment than almond milk, and it tastes delicious on its own, or in cooking/baking, like in this Vegan Cinnamon Bun Bread. I’ve recently really fallen for the Califia Farms Protein Oat Milk. Their oat milk is fantastic because it is creamy and tasty, but also provides all the protein you would normally find in dairy milk.
Unfortunately, a lot of the mainstream brands of plant-based milk you commonly see in the grocery store are full of fillers and hardly have any nutritional value. Califia Farms Protein Oat Milk includes 8 grams of protein per serving with its blend of oat, pea, and sunflower proteins. It’s rich in omega 3, 6, and 9 that it gets from the flaxseed plant, and its essential vitamins are all derived from plants. Seriously, how amazing is that? It’s so great to have a plant-based milk alternative that actually delivers the nutritional value your body needs and benefits from. Plus, it comes in both vanilla and original. Both would taste great in this recipe, but I used the original.
BONUS! If you aren’t an oat milk fan, you can also check out their other plant milks they have.
What is the best plant butters for baking?
Another question I get a lot is what kind of plant butters I like to use in baking, cooking, or just to eat on its own. For me, I really have fallen in love with Califia Farms Plant Butter. They have some fantastic options such as their avocado oil version or olive oil option. Both are awesome to use in baking and cooking.
What’s great about this plant butter is that it’s made from REAL food like cashews, tiger nuts (which are super high in fiber), nutritional yeast, avocado oil or olive oil, BUT you get that creamy butter-like taste that melts, spreads, and bakes well. These products stay clear from palm and canola oils and provides that yummy taste you’ll love with the use of whole foods, versus just fat like regular non-vegan butters.
How do you make Vegan Cinnamon Bun Bread?
Okay, enough talking, lets get to the main event, this delicious Vegan Cinnamon Bun Bread. This recipe is easy to make, and is seriously THE BEST! Here’s what you’ll do:
