  • 345 g of flour
  • 15 g active-dry yeast
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 40 g of vegan butter room temperature
  • 180 ml of milk of your choice e.g. oat milk


  • 3 apples peeled and chopped
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp vegan butter softened to room temperature


  • 120 g sugar
  • 2 tbsp oat cream
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon


  • Mix the flour, yeast, sugar and salt in a bowl.
  • Heat the milk and butter in a small saucepan. (Do not over heat, otherwise the yeast will break: only lukewarm)
  • Add Butter Mixture to the flour mixture and knead into a smooth dough.
  • The dough should be detached from the bowl.
  • Cover and let rest in a warm place for 60 minutes. Roll out the dough on a floured surface to a rectangle.
  • Make sure the dough is smooth and evenly thick.
  • Spread the softened butter all over the dough. In a small bowl, toss the brown sugar, cinnamon and apples together until combined and then sprinkle evenly over the dough.
  • Roll up and cut into equal rolls.
  • Arrange them in the prepared baking pan. Cover the rolls very tightly with a kitchen towel.
  • Allow rolls to rise in a warm environment again for about 60 minutes or until doubled in size.
  • Preheat the oven to 180°C. Bake rolls for about 25 - 30 minutes until they are golden brown. About halfway through the bake time, I like to cover the rolls loosely with aluminum foil so the tops don't brown too much. Remove pan from the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes.


  • Whisk all of the icing ingredients together and drizzle over warm rolls. Serve.


Overnight instructions: To prepare the night before serving, prepare the rolls through step 10. Cover the rolls tightly and refrigerate for 8-10 hours. The next morning, remove from the refrigerator and allow to rise on the counter for 1-2 hours before continuing with step 11.
