Rustic gluten-free cinnamon buns that are vegan, oil-free, sugar-free, nut-free, and no yeast! Lovingly made right in a cast iron skillet for extra flavor and charm. A breakfast or brunch recipe that will leave you feeling warm and cozy!




  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the almond milk and apple cider vinegar, let sit for 5-10 minutes to create "buttermilk".
  3. In a stand mixer or large mixing bowl, combine all dry batter ingredients and mix together. Then add in the "buttermilk" and extracts. Mix again until sticky batter is formed.
  4. Scoop and roll the dough out on a well floured flat surface (I used my Silpat and made the dough about that size and 1/4 inch thick).
  5. Mix together the applesauce filling in a small bowl and then coat the rolled out dough with the filling.
  6. Now, roll the coated dough into a cylinder (this can get messy), then cut into 6-8 rolls/buns.
  7. Place the rolls flat side down in a well greased cast iron skillet. Bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
  8. Mix together the drizzle ingredients and drizzle over the tops of the buns once cooled.
