- ¾ cup warm almond or soy milk (unsweetened)
- 2 ¼ teaspoons quick rise or active yeast (1/4-ounce package yeast)
- ¼ cup Lakanto sweetener (erythritol+Monk fruit sweetener)
- 1 egg plus 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
- ¼ cup vegan buttery spread (or melted unsalted butter)
- 2 cups almond flour
- 1 cup All-purpose flour
- 3/4 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup Lakanto Golden
- 1 ½ tablespoons ground cinnamon
- ¼ cup softened vegan buttery spread (or unsalted butter)
- 1/2-1 cup Lakanto powdered Monkfruit sweetener ***note, my cinnamon rolls were with a sweetener that had Monkfruit combined with 50% less sugar (I didn’t have Lakanto powdered sweetener at the time); test out different amounts of Lakanto to see how much sweetness you prefer; Lakanto website reports a 2:1 powdered sugar replacement ratio
- 2 tablespoons almond or soy milk (unsweetened)
- ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1. Warm almond or soy milk on the stove (I do this by putting it on low heat for a few minutes). It should be like warm bath water. Pour the warm milk into the bowl of an electric mixer and add a packet of yeast on top.
2. In a separate bowl, mix egg and egg yolk, add Lakanto sweetener, then vegan buttery spread. Mix well and add it to the mixer bowl with yeast and milk. Continue to mix with mixer. Gradually add flour and salt until dough begins to form.
3. Knead dough by hand on a clean surface with flour for about 10 minutes. Dough should form into a ball and be only slightly sticky. If it’s sticking to your hands and the surface, add in approximately 2 tablespoons more of All-purpose flour, and reassess. If needed, you may add more flour, just be cautious not to make the dough too dry.
4. Transfer dough ball to a well-oiled bowl, cover it with a plastic wrap and a clean dish towel. Allow dough to rise for 1 to 1 ½ hours.
5. After dough has risen, transfer it to a well-floured, clean surface and roll out into a rectangle.
6. In a bowl, mix Lakanto gold and cinnamon. Add softened vegan buttery spread for the filling and mix them all well with a spoon.
7. Spread this mixture evenly on the dough rectangle.
8. Roll the dough up tightly and evenly.
9. Cut the rolled dough into 7-8 equal pieces. Ta-da! You’ve got your cinnamon rolls…
10. Grease your baking pan (I like to use avocado oil).
11. Place the cinnamon rolls onto the baking pan, leaving enough distance (at least 1 inch) between them.
12. Cover the rolls with a plastic wrap and a clean dish towel again and let them rise for 30-45 minutes.
13. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Remove plastic wrap and towel and bake cinnamon rolls for 25 minutes or until slightly golden brown on the edges. While letting them cool for a few minutes, make the frosting.
14. Mix almond or soy milk with vanilla extract. Add Lakanto powdered Monkfruit sweetener and mix well.
15. Pour over cinnamon rolls and enjoy!
