These vegan sweet potato pie cinnamon rolls are the perfect way for how to use up leftover sweet potato pie! No need to waste, just recreate!
You’ve made a delicious vegan sweet potato pie for the holidays and now you have leftover pie you aren’t sure what to do with. *Whispers* You make these vegan sweet potato pie cinnamon rolls.
We love a good cinnamon roll, it’s no secret. We have over 3 dozen varieties here on our site.
However, we also love recreating recipes into new things in order to not waste any food.
One of the hardest things about the holidays when you are vegan or have food allergies is that you have to create this whole new meal. But then it’s even harder to think about what the heck to do with all the leftovers, especially if you are the only one who is eating this way.
These vegan sweet potato pie cinnamon rolls are also great way to recreate something for breakfast or brunch, especially if you have somewhere to go a day or two after having a big dinner.
Seriously they are one of the most decadent, mouthwatering vegan cinnamon roll flavors that we have made to date. They almost just melt in your mouth.
While they would be great for a breakfast or brunch, they could totally double as a dessert too!

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I still make these if I don’t have a vegan sweet potato pie?
Maybe you like the idea of these but you don’t have a vegan sweet potato pie. We totally get it and we have a simple solution.
You can mix together:
- 1 large cooked sweet potato (about 1 cup of mashed sweet potato)
- 1/3 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
Put a quarter of the mixture inside the dough and put the rest as the filling.
Also crumble graham crackers into the dough and across the top of the filling mixture. We’d say 1-2 inside the dough and 2-3 across the top.
