Ingredients

For the Bun

  • 1/4 c + 1-2 tablespoons almond milk (or non-dairy)
  • 1 tbsp. maple syrup (grade a)
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 c white-whole wheat flour
  • 1 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • pinch salt

For the Filling

  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp. sugar
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil

  • 1/2 tbsp. Earth Balance
  • 1 -2 tablespoons hot almond milk (or non-dairy)
;

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly oil two ramekins and set aside. (Alternatively, you can also use a muffin tin.)
  2. Make your buns by combining the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a dish. Then in another bowl, whisk together the wet ingredients (leaving out the extra tablespoons of almond milk at first) and then add to the dry. Dough will be firm, moist -- but not sticky. Add more milk accordingly.
  3. Divide dough into two equal sized pieces and then roll out into an oblong shape. 
  4. Make your cinnamon filling by combining all ingredients in a small dish. Then divide the mixture in half and spread onto your flattened buns.
  5. Roll buns with the filling on the inside and then place each one in a prepared ramekin.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes, until lightly browned.
  7. Let cool slightly while you combine the ingredients for the glaze. Then divide + drizzle evenly (depending on how much glaze you like) over your cinnamon buns and ENJOY!
