Hello & Happy Tuesday!!




Truth, I’ve never made homemade cinnamon rolls.. 


I don’t know what I was thinking… 


While I could have gone the traditional route and made the “classic ” cinnamon rolls, I had been dying to try Panatea Matcha and well.. that’s just not my style 







Thus the Vegan Matcha Cinnamon Rolls were born!



While you could make green cinnamon rolls with the incorporation of spinach perhaps, you’re not going to get the same hue, the same nutrients, and not the same flavor!!




If you’re looking to explore Matcha based recipes, this one for Vegan Matcha Cinnamon Rolls is sheer effortless perfection!

Place dough onto a buttered pie dish with rolls about 1 inch apart. Let rolls rise for about 15 minutes.

  7. While the rolls are cooking beat together the frosting ingredients in a large bowl and then spread on top of the rolls. You can add more milk or powdered sugar to reach your desired consistency.
  1. You can use coconut sugar in place of of brown sugar and white sugar
