These ultra soft and fluffy banana bread cinnamon rolls use just banana as the egg and create the sweetest soft pillows of banana bread in cinnamon roll form! Topped with a creamy peanut butter cream cheese frosting!

The best of banana bread and cinnamon rolls combined:

Can’t decide between making an AMAZING loaf of fluffy and soft banana bread and deliciously pillowy cinnamon rolls?

Let’s combine the two into one then 🙂

This might actually be my favorite breakfast creation yet (although I do love my salted caramel vegan banana pudding!). We’re taking my ultra soft and moist vegan banana bread recipe (that just uses banana as the egg!) and combining it with my award winning cinnamon rolls to give you the ultimate banana bread cinnamon roll recipe.

The result? The softest and most lovely cinnamon rolls that are sweetened with rich brown sugar and nutmeg and full of fresh banana flavor.

These cinnamon rolls truly taste like a bite of banana bread and yeasted sweet dough in one. It’s a feat. Then we go ahead and top with a luxuriously creamy peanut butter cream cheese frosting for the ultimate flavor combination.

I mean, you’re going to be speechless. There’s banana and peanut butter in every bite thanks to my method for filling the cinnamon rolls with banana in the swirl (it’s super easy- instead of banana coins, we’re mashing the banana!).

You’re going to LOVE making these banana bread cinnamon rolls for breakfast!

Simple Ingredients:

What I love most about these banana bread cinnamon rolls: you don’t need any eggs. That’s right! The banana will act as the vegan egg replacement, but also the flavor component. It’s a win win! Here’s what you need:

  • All purpose flour
  • Cinnamon & nutmeg: Classic banana bread flavors
  • Banana
  • Brown sugar & granulated sugar
  • Dairy free milk: Soy milk, oat milk, almond milk, or coconut milk will work here!
  • Vegan butter: I like Miyoko’s vegan butter- tastes just like the real deal!
  • Dry active yeast: I prefer to make these banana bread cinnamon rolls with dry active versus quick rise yeast. However, for the gluten free version, you’ll use quick rise.
  • Vanilla extract
  • Peanut butter
  • Vegan cream cheese: I prefer Tofutti or Kite Hill vegan cream cheese here!
