1/4 cup vegan butter or coconut oil, melted or 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce for oil-free
1/3 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup pumpkin spice
1/4 cup softened vegan butter
1/4 cup coconut sugar
1/2 cup vegan cream cheese or 2-3 tbsp coconut milk
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Heat the coconut milk until warm- 110F.
Sprinkle yeast, sugar, and a tablespoon of flour into the warmed milk in a large bowl, cover, and let activate for 10 minutes.
When activated, add in the vegan butter or applesauce, pumpkin, and 4 cups of flour to start. Knead the dough together. Add in the 1/2 cup extra flour if the dough is sticky. The dough shouldn’t be sticking to your hand.
Knead the dough lightly, for 2-4 minutes, then place the dough into a bowl greased with olive oil, cover with a cloth or wrap, and place into a warm area to let rise for 1 hour. It should be double in size.
After an hour, lightly punch down the dough and roll the dough out on a clean and floured surface to be a large rectangle (12×18 in).
Lightly spread the dough with softened vegan butter, and sprinkle the pumpkin spice and coconut sugar over the dough evenly.
Roll the cinnamon rolls length-wise into tight rolls and away from you.
Slice the roll into 10-12 cinnamon rolls, and place into an olive or coconut oil-greased dish (any size that you have, you can use a round pan or a square one).
Cover again with a clean towel or wrap, and place over or by the oven while the oven preheats to 350F. Let the cinnamon rolls rise for 30 minutes while the oven is preheating.
Place the cinnamon rolls into the oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until golden.
Remove from the oven and let cool while you prepare the icing.
You can make either a vegan cream cheese frosting or a regular sugar icing. To make the vegan cream cheese icing, beat the vegan cream cheese until fluffy, then add in the powdered sugar and cinnamon. Spread evenly over the rolls.
To make the regular sugar icing, add in coconut milk to cinnamon and powdered sugar and mix together until thick and smooth. Spread icing onto cinnamon rolls.
