sweet and cinnamon-y,
reminiscent of cold-nosed mornings,
spent in warm bakeries.
the perfect pair to a cup of coffee.
Unfortunately, I think we all know cinnamon rolls aren’t necessarily the, ahem, healthiest breakfast. Traditionally full of sugar, butter, eggs, and white flour, they definitely aren’t the best way to start your day. Lets change that with these vegan whole wheat cinnamon rolls with date filling.
So why don’t we ever make them at home? While these are slightly more time consuming, the majority of the time consists of waiting for the dough to rise. And boy, oh boy, is it worth the wait. I think I’ve consumed my body weight in cinnamon rolls today.
These vegan whole wheat cinnamon rolls are whole wheat, vegan, healthy, and (duh) delicious. These have a great almost pastry like texture, mostly due to the coconut oil. While I do try to limit the use of oil in my recipes, the coconut oil is a healthy and incredible addition to this vegan whole wheat cinnamon rolls with date filling recipe.
The filling is made of delicious dates. They reduce the added coconut sugar and make an incredible paste that I absolutely love. It would be great spread on toast or on top of oatmeal too!
I hope you all love these vegan whole wheat cinnamon rolls with date filling as much as I do.
