Raw, vegan cinnamon rolls! The most delicious date and nut crust rolled with a creamy cinnamon cashew filling, and topped with a sweet glaze and cinnamon. Truly all the best flavors.
These no-bake cinnamon rolls are one of my favorite freezer treats, and I can’t wait for you guys to try them!
About eight years ago, I started experimenting with raw desserts. I loved visiting vegan bakeries and tasting all of the amazing no-bake sweets they were able to whip up with just nuts, dried fruit and a few other basic ingredients.
I slowly started to get more creative with simple ingredients like dates, cashews, natural sweeteners and some spices, and realized there are so many things you can make with them!
There was a point where I sold raw cakes in my community in Brooklyn because I enjoyed making them so much. I made this recipe for the first time around seven years ago, and it’s been a family favorite ever since.
The combination of the creamy cashew glaze and cinnamon is one that just can’t be beat. These vegan cinnamon rolls make for the perfect freezer dessert, and even pack in some fiber, omega-3 fats, and protein.
Here’s what you’ll need for these no-bake cinnamon rolls:
- walnuts & pecans
- medjool dates
- raw cashews
- non-dairy milk- I love using an unsweetened vanilla almond milk for this!
- pure maple syrup, to sweeten
- vanilla extract
The ingredients are so simple, and truly ones I keep in my pantry at all times.
Since this recipe has multiple steps, I included a video at the bottom of the recipe card to guide you through it! It’s a labor of love, as I like to say, and totally worth it at the end!
