Frequently Asked Questions
CAN I PREP THESE VEGAN CINNAMON ROLLS AHEAD?
Yes! You sure can! There are two options.
- Once you make the dough and cover it to rise, you can place the bowl in the fridge up to 2 days before you plan to use it.
- You can make the entire recipe and then store your cinnamon rolls in an air tight container in the fridge for 5 days.
ARE THESE VEGAN BANANA BREAD CINNAMON ROLLS TOP 8 ALLERGEN FREE?
Unfortunately, at the time, we cannot recommend using a gluten free flour with this recipe. Please know that we are working on a gluten free dough, but it’s just not quite there yet.
Other than that, as long as you use a safe dairy free milk, (Oat is our favorite) and soy free vegan butter (try Earth Balance soy free) then you will be all set.

For the Banana Bread Cinnamon Rolls
- In a stand mixer bowl, whisk together 4 1/2 cups flour, yeast, brown sugar and salt.
- Then, add in the dairy free milk, butter, mashed bananas, and vanilla.
- Let the stand mixer go until a dough ball has formed. *Sprinkle a little more flour in if needed to not be sticky and form a ball.
- Once ball is formed, grease the same bowl mixed in and place the dough ball back into the bowl.
- Cover with a towel or plastic wrap and let sit for 60-90 minutes in a warm, draft free place until doubled.
- Once doubled in size, pull out the dough and lay it out on a lightly floured surface.
- Using a rolling pin, roll dough into an approximately 17×25″ rectangle that is 1/4″ thick.
- For the filling – Spread the softened butter evenly over the dough.
- In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Sprinkle evenly over the butter.
- Carefully roll cinnamon rolls into log from the longest side up. One completely rolled, place seam side down. Cut into even sized pieces – 9 for larger cinnamon rolls or more for smaller ones.
- Place into a greased baking dish and cover. Heat oven to 150 degrees, turn off and place covered dish inside to rise for 45-60 minutes.
- Remove from oven and let oven preheat to 350 degrees F.
- Once heated, place dish back inside and bake in oven for 30-35 minutes.
For the Vegan Nutmeg Frosting
- In a large bowl, cream the vegan butter together for 2-3 minutes.
- Add 3 cups of powdered sugar. Beat together.
- Add 2 tbsp dairy free milk, vanilla, maple syrup, nutmeg and remaining cup of powdered sugar. Beat together again.
- Use remaining 2 tbsp of milk if needed for desired consistency.
- Remove cinnamon rolls from oven when done. Let cool for 10 minutes.
- Spoon frosting across the top.
