Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup warm (not hot) water
  • 2 1/4 tsp yeast
  • 4 tbsp granulated sugar, divided into 1 tbsp + 3 tbsp
  • 1/2 cup oat milk
  • 1/2 tbsp ACV
  • 1/2 cup canned pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter, softened
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (approximate)*

Instructions

  1. Add the warm water, yeast, and sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, add oat milk and apple cider vinegar to a cup and let sit to the side for a few minutes.
  3. After 5 minutes, add the remainder of the sugar, along with the pineapple juice, vegan butter, salt, and oat milk mixture to the mixing bowl.
  4. Add 3 cups of flour and turn the mixer on low using the dough hook attachment. Continue adding more flour, a little bit at a time, until the dough ball has formed, is not too sticky, and has a smooth pliable texture. Don’t add so much that it gets dry and crumbly. It generally takes 3 1/2 cups of flour, but because of differences in how people measure flour, you might find you need a little less or a little more. Let the dough guide you!

  5. Keep the stand mixer on medium-high for a few minutes to knead the dough. Turn the mixer off, hold the dough in your hand, and drizzle a little olive oil in the bowl. Rub the bowl just to grease it, and return the dough back to the bowl. Cover the bowl with a towel and let rest for about an hour.
  6. Shape the dough into 15 balls, and place in a greased 9x13 baking sheet. Cover and let rest for another 30 minutes.
  7. Preheat oven to 375 degrees while rolls continue to rest. When preheated, bake for 18-21 minutes, or until rolls are a light golden brown. Enjoy!

Recipe Notes

For larger sandwich size rolls, shape into 10 rolls instead of 15.
