Dia’s Gluten Free & Vegan Cinnamon Buns

Gluten Free/Vegan Cinnamon Buns (rolls) Here is a yummy recipe to tide you over to my next post which will be even more yummy! Trust me.
These cinnamon buns were a complete experiment, as I have never made them gluten free before. I wasn’t sure which flours would be the best to use because in the past working with rice flour has been somewhat of a tumultuous experience, so I decided to use the ingredients below:

4 tsp active dry yeast
1tsp unrefined sugar
1 cup warm water (make sure no warmer than 110 degrees F)
1 cup oat milk (almond and peanut milk also work well)
2/3 cup raw cane sugar
2/3 cup vegan spread
2tsp salt
2 cups oat flour
1 cup rice flour
1 cup corn flour
1/4 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp xanthan gum

1/2 cup vegan spread, melted
1/3 cup of raw cane sugar
3 tablespoons cinnamon
1/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup of icing sugar
2 tsp of oat milk

Pan Sauce
1/2 cup vegan spread, melted
1/3 cup raw cane sugar
2 tablespoons maple syrup

Gluten Free/Vegan Cinnamon Buns (rolls)

Preheat oven to 220 degrees Celsius (see converter to the right)

To make the dough:

Mix together the yeast with 1 cup warm water and the 1tsp unrefined sugar. Set aside.
In another bowl mix together the oat, rice and corn flour, baking soda, baking powder and xanthan gum.
By then the yeast should be foaming. Tip this in to the flour and mix.
Add in the 1 cup oat milk and salt. Mix thoroughly until dough begins to form.
Knead the dough for 30 minutes, or stick inside your Kenwood Chef with the dough hook for 10 minutes.
Once dough has been kneaded, place on a floured surface and cover with a warm towel for 1 hour.
After the dough has risen, roll out to approximately 16×20″ rectangle.

To make the filling:

Mix the brown sugar and raw cane sugar together with the cinnamon.
Sprinkle evenly over the rolled out rectangle. Next pour the vegan spread on top of the dough.
Roll the dough up slowly, while trying not to push any of the filling out.
Once rolled slice into 12 pieces.

For the pan sauce:

Pour in the melted vegan spread into a rectangular casserole dish.
Next pour in the sugar and then finally spread the maple syrup evenly around.
Place each of the 12 pieces inside this dish.

Bake inside oven for 45 minutes or until the cinnamon buns look golden brown.

For the frosting:

Place the icing sugar and milk into a tiny bowl, mix thoroughly and pour on top of cinnamon bun of choice. This part is optional. The cinnamon buns will have plenty of sweetness to them. Now go ahead and devour them! :)

    Making them at home would be healthier than buying them at cinabon. They load their rolls with so much gunk. It tastes good, but it must be so bad for ya. Your ingredients seem v healthy!

    How are you? Your blog looks great. I’d love to try any of these dishes.

  13. Kishina

    They look HUGE! I’m used to the type you get in the supermarkets that are small. More cinnamon and sugar for me!!

    Hey Dia, My mom showed me your article in the South Philly Review. You have done so much even with kidney failure. Thought I’d check this out now that I’m thinking of going vegetarian. You make it all look so good. Thanks very much!

    Thanks everyone! They are big. One is a meal in itself.

    Thanks Southfillygal, I’m glad you liked the article. There is no one right diet. Whatever works best for you is what you should do. For me, immediately after cutting out meat, I felt 10 x better. Also, replacing refined sugar with unrefined sugar is easy and beneficial to the body as well.

    We call em cinnamon swirls here. They have so many names….never heard of them gluten free. it is something babycakes should sell. great idea!

  19. Louise

    I find the combination of oat flour and rice flour quite interesting. I have used a similar blend for making apple dumplings and it works GREAT!

    Thanks for sharing this Dia. They look scrumptious! Good Luck with the votes! I too, voted for you!!!

    Want to yield myself from siteing a comment, Although I would disagree on a few of the finer particulars, I believe you did an superior job explaining it. Certain beats having to analysis it on my own.

    Hi Dia,

    I thought that oats are NOT gluten free or rather there is debate over this.
    Would love your comment!
    Thank you.

  27. Administrator

    Oats are naturally gluten free, you just have to make sure the oats have not been processed in a factory that processes gluten products alongside. It should say on the packaging. But I make my oat flour from organic scottish oats that have not been processed alongside gluten. I hope that helps! :)

    I am allergic to corn, what do you suggest as a substitute? I would love, love, love to make these! Thanks.

  29. VeggiePeggie

    Dianne use any other type of gluten free flour, like rice flour or bean flour.
