Banana Cinnamon Rolls
- Kitchen aid
- Mixing bowl
- Casserole dish
For the dough
- 100 ml vegetable drink I used sugar-free almond milk
- 260 g bananas +- 2 large bananas
- 4 tbsp maple syrup
- 75 g almond butter
- 500 g flour I used T110 wholemeal flour
- 2 1/2 tsp instant yeast
- 6 tbsp coconut sugar to taste
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 tbsp. vegetable butter
- 3 tbsp. coconut sugar
- 1 tbsp. ground cinnamon to taste
- Mix the bananas with the vegetable drink, almond butter, vanilla extract and maple syrup. Reserve.
- Put all the dry ingredients in the bowl of a food processor.
- Place the bowl on the food processor with the hook and turn to minimum speed.
- Add the liquid mixture to the dry mixture.
- Mix until a ball forms (like pizza dough). If the mixture is too dry, add a little vegetable drink and if the mixture is too liquid, add a little flour.
- Cover with a clean cloth and leave to rise for an hour. The dough should double in size.
- Melt the vegetable butter.
- Meanwhile, take the dough out of the bowl and flatten it into a rectangle (on a lightly floured surface).
- Spread the butter over the entire dough, leaving a 1 cm border on one end. Sprinkle with coconut sugar and ground cinnamon.
- Roll out the dough and cut at intervals of about 2 cm.
- Line an ovenproof dish with baking paper (underneath and on 2 sides is enough, see photo) or grease your dish with butter.
- Leave the rolls to rise in the dish for about 30 minutes.
- Preheat the oven to 190°C, fan off.
- Brush the rolls with the remaining butter and bake for 18-20 minutes (depending on the oven) until they are lightly browned.
- Leave to cool before topping with the topping of your choice. I often use a maple syrup and vanilla cashew cream.
- The rolls can be stored for up to 3 days in an airtight box. Don’t hesitate to heat them up in the microwave with a little vegetable butter on top to make them soft again.
