Vegan Cinnamon Rolls

Ingredients
  1. 4 1/2 tea. (2 packets) rapid rise yeast
  2. 1 cup warm water (110°)
  3. 1/3 cup melted coconut oil
  4. 1 tsp. salt
  5. 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  6. 1/4 cup + 1 tea. sugar
  7. 2 T. melted coconut oil (for the filling)
  8. 1 T. cinnamon (for the filling)
  9. 1/2 cup brown sugar (for the filling)
  10. 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar (for the frosting)
  11. 2-3 T. water (for the frosting)
  12. 1/4 tea. vanilla extract (for the frosting)

Instructions
  • Warm up the water until it is between 100°-115° F. It should feel like warm bath water. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of sugar, and all the yeast. Stir and let sit for a few minutes to activate. After 5-10 minutes the mixture should have bubbles in it to show the yeast is alive. If there is no change, toss it and use fresher yeast.
  • Add the 1/3 cup coconut oil, salt, 2 cups of flour, remaining 1/4 cup sugar, and stir until the mixture comes together. Add additional flour in 1/2 cup increments until mixture pulls away from the sides of the bowl, but is still soft and slightly sticky.
  • Turn dough out onto floured surface and knead a few times until you form a smooth ball. Dust your bowl with flour and put the dough back in the bowl. Set aside while you prep the filling.
