TOTAL TIME:

1 hour

INGREDIENTS

Cinnamon Rolls:
¾ cup JUSTIN’S® Chocolate Hazelnut and Almond Butter
¼ cup Granulated Sugar
5 cups Self-Rising Flour, plus more for dusting
2 cups Oat Milk
8 tablespoons Vegan Butter, melted, divided
1 tablespoon Ground Cinnamon

Chocolate Hazelnut Glaze:
1 tablespoon JUSTIN’S® Chocolate Hazelnut and Almond Butter
½ cup Powdered Sugar
1 ½ tablespoons Oat Milk
1 teaspoon Vanilla

DIRECTIONS

For the Cinnamon Rolls:

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.

2. Grease a 9 x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray or butter and set aside.

3. Whisk together the flour and sugar in a large bowl.

4. In a medium bowl, mix together the oat milk and 4 tablespoons of the melted butter.

5. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir just until the dough comes together. Then, place the dough on a floured surface.

6. Sprinkle the dough with flour, and knead until the dough is smooth, sprinkling with more flour as needed to prevent sticking.

7. Using a floured rolling pin, roll the dough into a 24 x 10-inch-long rectangle about ¼-inch thick, with the longer side facing you.

8. Brush 2 tablespoons of the melted butter onto the surface of the dough, using it all.

9. Spread evenly with JUSTIN’S® Chocolate Hazelnut and Almond Butter, leaving a ½-inch border, and top with cinnamon.

10. Starting at the long end, roll the dough up tightly into a log.

11. Pinch the top seam together and cut the dough crosswise into 10 pieces, then place the rolls in the baking dish.

12. Brush the tops with the remaining 2 tablespoons of melted butter.

13. Bake until golden-brown, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, for about 35 minutes.

14. Remove from the oven and cool slightly.

For the Chocolate Hazelnut Glaze:

1. Combine all glaze ingredients in a small bowl, and drizzle over the top of the warm rolls.
