The holidays are the perfect time to introduce the family to delicious plant-based foods, and these Cinnamon Rolls with Daiya Greek Vanilla Yogurt are the best recipe! Check out the video below and you’ll see why. 🙂
- Dough: 2 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 packet of instant yeast (about 2 ¼ teaspoons)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 6 tablespoons of warm water
- 3 tablespoons of flax meal
- ½ cup water
- ¼ cup plant-based milk
- 3 tablespoons of vegan butter
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon
- ¼ cup vegan butter, at room temperature
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 4 tablespoons Daiya Vanilla Greek Yogurt
- ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract
DOUGH: In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, yeast, and salt.
In a small bowl, whisk together 6 tablespoons warm water and flax meal until it turns into a gelatinous consistency.
In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine water, plant-based milk, and vegan butter, microwave until butter melts, about 30 seconds. Remove from microwave, add flax meal mixture, and whisk together thoroughly.
Stir the liquid mixture into the bowl with dry ingredients until well-combined, about 3 minutes. Once it forms into a smooth dough, let it rest in the bowl covered in tin foil for 10 minutes.
FILLING: Preheat oven to 200 degrees F.
On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough into a thin rectangle.
Combine the brown sugar and cinnamon. Spread the softened butter onto the dough, and sprinkle the brown sugar mixture all over the dough.
Tightly roll the dough lengthwise and cut into 9 even pieces. Place in a well-greased 9-inch square pan and cover with tin foil.
Turn off the oven, place the covered cinnamon rolls in the oven for 20 minutes to rise.
Remove the tin foil from the cinnamon rolls, turn oven temperature to 375 degrees F, and bake for 20 minutes, or until slightly golden brown.
While cinnamon rolls are baking, combine the sugar, Daiya yogurt, and vanilla extract.
Remove cinnamon rolls from oven once they’re slightly golden brown, let them cool down for about 5 minutes, and then add the Daiya glaze.
