Vegan Cinnamon Roll Minis

These gluten free and vegan cinnamon roll minis are so easy to make and so fun. Do you remember when Mcdonald’s used to have cinnamon rolls, I think they were called cinnamelts? Oh my gosh those were delicious. These kind of remind me of those, little perfect bites of cinnamon rolls. The icing for this recipe is made with just two simple ingredients and is my go to icing recipe!

Vegan and Gluten Free Cinnamon Roll Minis


I used melted coconut butter on these vegan cinnamon roll minis. I get it from Thrive Market normally but I’ve seen it at walmart too! It’s not the same as coconut oil so don’t use them interchangeably.

Recipe Tips:

I would recommend using extra oat flour on the parchment paper so that way the dough doesn’t stick when you make the cinnamon rolls. You don’t need a lot but enough to coat the parchment paper!
