  1. Heat 1 cup of soy milk over medium heat until milk is warm but not too hot to touch (about 100 degrees F). Stir in dry active yeast and set aside for 10 minutes for yeast to activate.
  2. Combine the remaining 1/4 cup milk with chickpea flour, whisking it together until thick and gooey. Set aside.
  3. In the large bowl of a stand-up mixer, combine 2 cups flour, sugar, salt, and vegan butter. Using the hook attachment, mix to combine.
  4. With motor running, slowly add chickpea flour and yeast/milk mixtures, scrapping down the sides as necessary.
  5. Add the remaining flour 1/2 cup at at time and beat to combine. Once the dough starts pulling away from the sides of the bowl and is soft to the touch, the dough is done.
  6. Transfer to a floured surface and kneed the dough for about five minutes. Shape into a ball and place in a large oiled bowl, cover in plastic wrap, and place in a warm area of your house for 1 hour or until dough has doubled in size.
  7. When dough is ready (you will know if when you stick your finger in it, the dent remains), roll out onto a floured covered surface into a large rectangle about 1/4 ” thick. Trim edges.
  8. Spread the vegan butter over the entire surface of the dough, leaving the top 1/4" of the rectangle clean. Combine cinnamon and sugar and spread evenly over the butter. Starting at the bottom of the rectangle, roll dough evenly into a tight roll. With your fingers press together the seam. Seam side down, cut dough using a serrated knife into 15 equal pieces, about 1” thick.
  9. Place cinnamon rolls evenly in oiled 9x12 (or similarly sized) pan. Cover and allow dough to rise for a second time until doubled in size, about 40 minutes.

  10. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Once cinnamon rolls are ready, remove plastic wrap and brush tops and sides with soy milk (optional).
  11. Bake for 25–30 minutes, until golden brown and fragrant. Remove from oven, transfer to a cooling wrack and allow to cool for 10 minutes.
  12. Combine ingredients for the glaze and pour on top cinnamon rolls. Serve warm.
