  • 1/2 cup coconut milk with 1 tsp apple cider vinegar
  • 2 tbsp ground flaxseed with 1/3 cup water
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 2 tbsp coconut sugar

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla powder
  • 1/2 cup coconut oil, softened


  • 4 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil, melted

  • 1/2 cup coconut butter (melted)


  1. Preheat oven to 375F and grease an 8×8 baking pan with coconut oil.

  3. Add in the applesauce, ground flaxseed mixture, coconut milk, and vanilla, and mix until well combined.
  4. Add in the coconut oil, and knead the oil into the dough.
  5. Roll the dough out between two pieces of parchment paper into a large rectangle.
  6. Combine all filling ingredients in a small bowl and lightly brush onto one side of the dough. Make sure you brush the edges as well.
