4 tsp dry active yeast*â €
1 tsp saltâ €
1 1/2 cups non-dairy milkâ €
1/2 cup refined coconut oil**â €
1 tbsp vanilla extractâ €
For the Apple Filling:â €

1/2 cup refined coconut oil or vegan butterâ €
1 cup brown sugarâ €
3 tbsp ground cinnamonâ €
1/2 tsp saltâ €
For the Vanilla Glaze:â €
4 tbsp vegan butter (softened if using the stick kind)â €
2 cups confectioner’s sugarâ €
1 tsp vanilla extractâ €
2-4 tbsp non-dairy milkâ €
â €
Instructionsâ €
To Prepare the Apple Filling:â €
In a medium-sized pot over medium heat, melt the refined coconut oil or vegan butter, add in the apples, brown sugar and cinnamon. Stir well and bring to a simmer. Turn the heat down to low, and cook for 20-25 minutes or until most of the juice has cooked off but the apples are still firm. Stir in the salt, and set aside to cool to about 115°F.⠀
To Prepare the Dough:â €
In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the coconut oil and then add the non-dairy milk, bringing the mixture to 110-115°F (if it gets too hot, let the temperature come down or it will kill the yeast.) Stir in the vanilla.⠀
In a large bowl with a wooden spoon or in the bowl of a stand-mixer with a dough hook attachment, mix the flour, sugar, yeast and salt together. Slowly stream in the warm milk and oil mixture. If using a stand mixer, run it on a medium-low setting for about 10 minutes. If doing it by hand, remove the dough from the bowl and on a lightly oiled surface with oiled hands, knead it for about 5-10 minutes (the longer the better!)â €
Wash out the bowl and grease it. Form the dough into a ball, place it in the bowl and turn it over so both sides are oiled. Lightly cover and let it rise in a warm place for 1 1/2 hours or until about doubled in size.â €
To Assemble the Rolls:â €
Line a 9 x 13″ pan with parchment paper, or oil well. Preheat the oven to 350°F.â €
