Eggless whole wheat cinnamon rolls

Warm eggless whole wheat cinnamon rolls just out of the oven are a delicacy. They taste sooooooo good. The cinnamon goodness with all the melted butter makes the rolls so soft. These little rolls of soft bread are fun to eat.
These eggless whole wheat cinnamon rolls can be served for breakfast or for dessert or just eaten as a snack. I have also made a decadent vanilla bean and coffee icing. It is to die-for! It keeps the rolls moist and makes these eggless whole wheat cinnamon rolls extra special.


I fell in love with these rolls when I ate them at an English bakery. I was immensely happy when The Pioneer Woman revealed this recipe. Her recipe is on a large scale and I have adapted the recipe to make fewer rolls.
I made eggless whole wheat cinnamon rolls with half the dough. The other half, well I made garlic rolls!

Cinnamon, these days is one of my favourite spices. It is warming and hearty. Those thin bits of goodness makes dishes very fragrant. Take for instance, my favourite cinnamon toast. Yum!
Do try these cinnamon rolls. More snack recipes from FOI. Try whole wheat bread and dil pasand from FOI. More baked recipes of course cinnamon based recipes.
