Why You’ll Love These Biscoff Vegan Cinnamon Rolls
Honestly, what’s not to love about cinnamon rolls, especially when they’re made with simple vegan ingredients?? Soft, fluffy, and sticky sweet, they’re one of my all-time favorite breakfasts, and I’ve even been known to serve them for dessert. Seriously, paired with a warm cup of coffee, life doesn’t get better…until I made these vegan cinnamon rolls!
Embracing my second love of Biscoff recipes, I married the two and took my classic vegan cinnamon roll recipe to the next level. This version is:
- So quick to make.
- Extra fluffy and super thick.
- Perfect for a single-serving.
- Totally vegan and high in protein!
What Is Biscoff Spread?
Also known as cookie butter, Biscoff spread is a paste similar to a nut butter. However, unlike almond or peanut butter, Biscoff spread is made out of the ever-popular (and totally delicious) Speculoos cookies, flour, sugar, and oil. As you can probably guess, the spread is smooth and creamy with a sweet, caramel-like flavor. Honestly, it’s so good I’ve been known to eat it with a spoon. No judgment, mkay?
Ingredients You’ll Need
I don’t know about you, but I don’t have the time to pull out every ingredient in my kitchen just to make breakfast. So, I kept this list short and sweet. With just 7 items, you’ll have everything you need!
- Flour – I used regular all-purpose flour. If needed, gluten-free all-purpose flour should work well, too. I just can’t guarantee your results, because I haven’t tested it yet!
- Vegan Yogurt – The thicker your yogurt the better! It helps add protein and structure to the rolls.
- Protein – You already know I had to go with my fave vegan pea protein from Nuzest (code: thekellykathleen), but any protein powder you have on hand should work. I do recommend sticking with a neutral flavor like vanilla so you don’t overpower the rest of the ingredients.
- Baking Powder – Crucial to baked goods, baking powder creates the fluffy texture we’re looking to achieve.
- Salt – A staple in all my recipes, salt helps bring out the natural flavors of the rest of the ingredients.
- Biscoff Spread – To save time, I just opt for the storebought version. However, if you’re feeling ambitious you could definitely make your own.
- Biscoff Cookies – Just when you thought this recipe couldn’t get any more irresistible, I added cookies. You’re welcome. Honestly, they’re absolutely necessary to tie all the flavors together and add a little extra crunch.
How to Make the Best Vegan Cinnamon Rolls Recipe
- Combine all of the ingredients for the dough (except for the Biscoff) in a large bowl.
- Flour a workspace, and knead the dough into a ball.
- Then, form a triangle no bigger than ¼ inch thick.
- In a second bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of cookie butter with 1 tablespoon of yogurt.
- Spread the mixture over the dough, coating completely before cutting it into 5-6 strips.
- Starting with one strip, roll it in on itself until a mini cinnamon roll is formed.
- Repeat, rolling each strip over the original roll until a giant vegan cinnamon roll is formed.
- Place the roll on a piece of parchment paper, and air fry at 325° Fahrenheit for 15-18 minutes.
- Top with melted Biscoff spread and cookie pieces.
Common Vegan Cinnamon Roll Questions
Can I make this recipe a day in advance?
Sure! Just form the dough, and create your roll. Then, store it covered in the fridge overnight. When you’re ready to eat, all you have to do is pop it in the air fryer, and it’s ready to go!
How long do leftovers last?
In my house, there’s no such thing as leftovers. However, if you want to make this recipe ahead of time, it will stay fresh at room temperature for up to 2 days. Or, store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week.
Can I freeze vegan cinnamon rolls?
Yes, you can freeze this recipe either before or after baking. It will keep fresh for up to 2 months. Just be sure to let it thaw completely before air frying.
Can I make more than one roll at once?
You can definitely split the dough into smaller rolls. Or, just double the recipe. However, I do not recommend cooking more than 1 large or 2 smaller rolls in the air fryer at once. Otherwise, it will overcrowd, and your vegan cinnamon rolls recipe won’t cook!

Biscoff Vegan Cinnamon Roll
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour gf all purpose should work as well but I haven’t tested it
- 1/2 cup thick vegan yogurt
- 3 tbsp vanilla pea protein
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- pinch of salt
- 2 tbsp biscoff spread
- 1 tbsp yogurt
- biscoff cookies for decoration
Start by making your dough:
- stir the ingredients together except for the biscoff butter in a small/medium bowl.
Roll the biscoff roll:
- Liberally flour your working surface. Knead the dough on your floured surface, adding a little more flour if necessary, until it forms a ball.
- Roll out the dough into a rectangle – it doesn’t need to be perfect but the dough should be no more than 1/4 inch thick.
- In a small bowl, whisk together 1 tbsp of cookie butter with the 1 tbsp of yogurt.
- Spread the yogurt/biscoff mixture all over the rectangle before cutting the rectangle into 5-6 long strips. Take one strip and start rolling it to form a mini roll. Take the next strip and continue to roll the mini roll and continue on with each strip of dough until it forms one massive roll.
Bake the biscoff roll:
- Transfer your roll (I used a spatula) onto a small piece of parchment paper. Place the parchment paper into your air fryer and bake at 325 for 15 minutes.
- Top with the leftover biscoff spread (melted) and enjoy!
