Pull-Apart Vegan Cinnamon Rolls

Who loves Huffington Post?? I do! I would say it's my go-to website (along with my other one: Buzzfeed!) So basically I came across this article called "16 Recipes You've Got To Try For Pull-Apart Bread" and it gave me an idea of wanting to bake pull-apart cinnamon rolls. I've been baking these vegan cinnamon rolls for about 3 years or so - but I didn't even think about making it a pull-apart! It's very simple. All you need to do is to change the thickness of the cinnamon rolls and that's it. In this case, you slice it very thin.

Pull-Apart Vegan Cinnamon Rolls
Servings: 1 pull-apart cinnamon rolls (about 30 1/4 inch cinnamon rolls)

  • 2 cups all purpose flour 
  • 2 Tablespoon sugar
  • 4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2-3 Tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 3/4 cups unsweetened soy milk (+1 Tablespoon if needed) 

For Filling: 
  • 3 Tablespoon brown sugar
  • 3 Tablespoon vegetable oil 
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
For Glaze: 
  • 3 Tablespoon powdered sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon unsweetened soy milk 
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Preheat oven at 400°F
  • In a small bowl, mix brown sugar, vegetable, cinnamon, and vanilla and put it aside. (This is your filling) 
  • In another bowl, make the glaze. Set it aside. 
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. 
  • In the same medium bowl, add the vegetable oil, followed by the unsweetened soy milk.
    **Note: I usually use my hands to form the dough. 
  • Sprinkle some flour on a cutting board, and place the dough. Using a rolling pin, roll out the dough evenly. 
  • Sprinkle the filling and spread it evenly throughout the dough. 
  • Go to to the edge of the dough and roll it gently. 
  • Cut the dough very thin (about 1/4 inch) 
  • Oil the cake pan (I used a round cake pan)and place the dough next to one another. 
  • Drizzle half of the glaze on the dough before placing it in the oven. 
  • Bake for about 20 minutes. 
  • Once the rolls are out of the oven, immediately drizzle the remainder of the glaze.

Got it out from the pan nice and easy!

Doesn't it make you want to pull it apart?? 
I really like this recipe because the cinnamon rolls are so soft and moist. You can't imagine that it doesn't have butter inside. Did you know that a regular cinnamon rolls from Cinnabon classic roll has 880 calories? Don't get me wrong, I love Cinnabon but it definitely changes the way I approach those little suckers when I know how much empty calories it contains. Not that I'm saying that these vegan cinnamon rolls don't contain empty calories - because they certainly do! But I would prefer to eat homemade cinnamon rolls instead of buying processed cinnamon rolls. Although occasionally I will indulge on some Cinnabons ;) 

Anyway, these pull-apart vegan cinnamon rolls were a hit! 
I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed baking them :)

With that being said, from my kitchen to yours...Happy Baking!
