Ingredients

Dough:

  • 2 cups self rising flour
  • 1 1/3 cup canned pumpkin
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves

Filling:

  • 1/3 cup dairy free butter spread (Earth Balance) (if not dairy free you can use butter)
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar

Icing:

  • 1/3 cup confectioners sugar
  • Few splashes of vanilla almond milk (or coconut milk, rice milk, etc)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Combine the flour and pumpkin in a large bowl. Stir together for a few seconds.
  3. Add cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Stir dough a few more times, then use your hands to fully incorporate all ingredients into a ball of dough.
  4. Place the ball on a lightly floured surface. Using a floured rolling pin, roll it out into a rectangular shape (no need to be perfect). Try to get it about the size of a large cutting board; or about as thin as you can get the dough without it breaking.
  5. Now make the filling: melt the dairy-free spread in a bowl in the microwave for 15-20 seconds, then stir in the brown sugar. Spread this mixture over the rectangle of pumpkin dough.
  6. Starting at one end of the rectangle, roll the dough down tightly, forming a long rolled up log of pumpkin cinnamon roll dough.
  7. Grease a square baking dish. Use a sharp knife to cut approximately 1 inch segments from the dough, and place cut side down in the baking dish. You should get about 16 cinnamon rolls; arrange 4x4 in the baking dish.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and let cool for a few minutes. Meanwhile, make icing: add confectioners sugar to a bowl and add a few splashes of vanilla almond milk (or your preferred milk alternative). Add just enough to create your preferred icing texture. Drizzle icing on the cinnamon rolls, then enjoy!
