Yield: 8-10 1x



Cinnamon rolls:

  • 2 and 3/4 cups One Degree Organic Sprouted Spelt Flour (can sub oat or gluten-free AP flour)
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3 tablespoons coconut sugar
  • 1 cup unsweetened non-dairy milk (almond, oat, anything!)
  • 2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 6 tablespoons liquid coconut oil

Cinnamon sugar filling:

  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup softened non-dairy butter (or you can use ghee or grass-fed butter)


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees and line a 9×9 baking dish with parchment paper
  2. Whisk together the nut milk and apple cider vinegar in a medium bowl and set aside for 5-10 minutes
  3. Add in the vanilla extract then coconut oil and mix again
  4. In a large bowl, mix together the spelt flour, baking powder and coconut sugar
  5. Then pour the wet mixture into the dry and gently mix with a spatula 
  6. Form the dough into a round sphere and add to a floured-surface to roll it out (you can use a water bottle like I did!)
  7. Once the dough is in a large triangle, about 1 inch thick, gently spread the vegan butter over the dough 
  8. Mix together the coconut sugar and cinnamon then sprinkle on top of the butter on the dough
  9. Roll the dough from the bottom, up and make sure you seal it well so it all stays together
  10. Gently slice into 8-10 rolls, then add to oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown
