Vegan cinnamon buns are the perfect thing to make on a slow rainy day when you’re just pottering around the house. My perfect day at home would involve cups of tea (dandelion chai from The Source Bulk Foods is my favourite right now), reading (just finished Girl On The Train), cleaning out my junk drawer (yes I find this fun) & making these vegan Cinnamon buns of course!
They smell heavenly when baking, so it’s worth the time waiting for these beauties to rise. Sweetened entirely with dates they make a nice alternative to the sugar version. Next time I think I’ll try a chocolate filled number for Easter?
I have to say I haven’t done much baking this summer. Apart from the odd tart or pizza. It has just been too hot. Like 40 + hot! Favouring smoothies, fresh salads, summer fruit & anything frozen instead. However at the beginning of the month I posted a stop motion on social media showing how to cut & roll these buns. I had taken the shots months ago when it was cold. It got such an overwhelming response I thought it was time to add it to the blog. I really hope you like the recipe. The video is posted a bit further down if you missed it. Here are some shots from the video.
The last 6 weeks of school holidays have forced me to slow down. I’m going to miss my lazy mornings when school goes back on Monday. My oldest starts at another school, so that will make things interesting. I’m already feeling a bit stressed. He will be catching two buses to school in the morning. Something he has never done. We have walked to school since kindy, so I’m crossing my fingers all goes well!
Hope you get a chance to have a slow morning, a cuppa & these buns, especially my Northern Hemisphere friends,
