Move aside cinnamon rolls, there is another roll in town, one that can definitely hold it’s own against you, a much loved dessert! But for real though, I am a huge lover of cinnamon rolls, but it’s about time to switch things up. So let me introduce to you, the bounty roll! The name is quite self explanatory, these perfectly golden buns are filled with a coconut, cacao mixture and instead of using vegan butter as a filling, we of course used extra virgin coconut oil. I was planning on sharing this recipe about 10 months ago when I served them at my birthday, but you know what they say, better late than never, right!?
These rolls are perfect to bring to a holiday dinner or to serve on any other occasion to be honest, I often make these for family and friends, trust me, it’s a crowd pleaser.
You can eat these bun’s straight out of the oven as they are or top them with whatever frosting you like. For this batch I made a simple vanilla “butter” cream frosting, by whisking about two heaping table spoons of vegan butter with powdered sugar, vanilla with a pinch of turmeric and spirulina for colour.
I also decided to top them with some crushed pistachios, goji berries and desiccated coconut for that extra festive look.
You know what’s funny, I’m just now noticing that lately the recipes have been sweet treats, don’t worry I’ve got something savoury coming your way!
