Gluten Free Vegan Cinnamon Rolls with Vanilla Frosting

I had plans to leave the house today. Then it started snowing and Christmas shows came on tv. I kept telling myself just one more episode. But then it was too late to go anywhere and these happened. Totally worth procrastinating, staying in my pj’s, and not stepping outside? Absolutely.

I’ve been trying to create a cinnamon roll recipe for a few weeks now and I hit the nail on the head this afternoon. Christmas miracle!!

The rolls are very moist and compliment the creamy vanilla frosting so well. Warm these up in the microwave for a few seconds and hear your taste buds sing songs of pure bliss.
