  • 160g unbleached all-purpose or light spelt flour
  • 2g baking powder
  • 2g baking soda
  • 4g sea salt
  • 100g room temperature coconut oil or vegan butter
  • 155g coconut sugar
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 140g sourdough discard
  • 80g vegan chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate

  2. Whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt into a bowl and set this aside.
  3. Place the coconut oil in a large bowl with a hand mixer and beat on low speed until the mixture softens. Add coconut sugar and beat until well incorporated. Ensure the coconut oil has dissolved completely. Add the vanilla and sourdough discard, continuing to beat on medium speed until well incorporated.

If you love cinnamon rolls, wait till you get your hands on these delicious vegan discard treats! They’re sticky, sweet and incredibly satiating, you won’t be able to keep your hands off them!


  • 375g all-purpose plain flour or bread flour
  • 100g sourdough discard
  • 125g dairy-free milk (lukewarm)
  • 115g vegan butter or margarine melted
  • 38g granulated sugar or coconut sugar
Cinnamon filling
  • 30g vegan butter or margarine melted
  • 35g packed brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • 1 tbsp. ground cinnamon
Maple vanilla frosting
  • 120g vegan cream cheese (softened)
  • 25g powdered sugar or icing sugar
  • 40g maple syrup
  • A dash of vanilla bean extract or powder


For the cinnamon roll dough
  1. Add all the ingredients to a stand mixer with the dough hook attached or a large bowl. Mix until combined. Knead the dough for 5 minutes, until you’re left with a soft dough. If the dough is too wet, add more flour, and knead until it’s no longer sticky. If the dough is too dry, add a splash of milk, and knead until it forms a smooth dough.
  2. Cover the bowl with a towel and set it aside in a warm spot for 2 hours, or until the dough has doubled in size.
For the cinnamon filling
  1. Combine sugar and ground cinnamon in a small bowl.
  2. Sprinkle some flour over a clean surface. Scoop the dough onto the surface and roll it out into a large rectangular shape.
Assemble the sourdough rolls
  1. Use a pastry brush to spread the melted butter or margarine all over the dough, ensuring that it reaches the edges. Sprinkle cinnamon sugar, rubbing it into the surface of the dough with your fingers.
  2. If your dough is too soft to roll, allow it to chill in the fridge for at least 10 minutes. Start from the long side, and tightly roll the dough into a large tube. Use a sharp knife to cut even rolls out of the dough.
  3. Place these rolls on a baking tray, leaving a gap between each roll. Cover the tray with a towel, and let them rise for at least 1 hour. Once you’re ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350F.
  4. When the oven is nice and hot, bake the rolls for 20 minutes. When ready, the rolls should be a nice golden brown. Remove the cinnamon rolls from the oven and set them aside to cool.
  5. Meanwhile, whisk all of the frosting ingredients in a small bowl until smooth. Add a generous drizzle of frosting onto the rolls.

By Natasha Krajnc

Hi! My name is Natasha and I'm specialized in home sourdough bread baking and currently based in Slovakia - a very small country in Central Europe. My bread baking story began in 2011 when I decided to give up commercial yeast. I felt tired all the time (especially after eating bread and other foods made with yeast), I wasn’t motivated to do anything, had trouble concentrating throughout the day, my abdomen was bloated and I was like a trumpet on steroids – basically, I was quite a wreck. I was a big bread lover (and still am) and having to stop eating bread was quite hard at that time but I felt I was on a right way to give my body a chance to heal itself.
