by @crumbs.and.caramel 💛 Recipe:⠀
For the Dough:⠀
4 cups all-purpose flour⠀
1/3 cup granulated sugar⠀
4 tsp dry active yeast*⠀
1 tsp salt⠀
1 1/2 cups non-dairy milk⠀
1/2 cup refined coconut oil**⠀
1 tbsp vanilla extract⠀
For the Apple Filling:⠀
3 lbs firm apples, peeled and cored, cut into 1/4″ pieces (⠀
1/2 cup refined coconut oil or vegan butter⠀
1 cup brown sugar⠀
3 tbsp ground cinnamon⠀
1/2 tsp salt⠀
For the Vanilla Glaze:⠀
4 tbsp vegan butter (softened if using the stick kind)⠀
2 cups confectioner’s sugar⠀
1 tsp vanilla extract⠀
2-4 tbsp non-dairy milk⠀

To Prepare the Apple Filling:⠀
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:⠀
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!)⠀
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.⠀
To Assemble the Rolls:⠀
Line a 9 x 13″ pan with parchment paper, or oil well. Preheat the oven to 350°F.⠀
