Servings 26 Rolls


  • 1 ½ Cups Plant Milk (unsweetened and not vanilla flavored), warm I used So Delicious Coconut Milk
  • ¼ Cup Sugar
  • 2 ½ teaspoon Active Dry Yeast
  • 6 tablespoon Non Dairy Butter, melted + cooled I used Earth Balance
  • 4-4 ½ Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 2 tablespoon Non Dairy Butter, melted (for brushing)


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine warm plant milk and sugar. Add the yeast and stir. Let sit for 5 minutes.
  • After 5 minutes, add 6 tablespoons of melted non dairy butter and stir to combine.
  • Add 4 cups of flour and the salt. Stir until a shaggy dough forms. Turn the dough out onto a floured counter top and knead until the dough is smooth, adding a little flour as you go to keep the dough from sticking to the counter. You may need up to ½ cup more flour.
  • Place the dough into a lightly oiled bowl and cover with a damp dish towel and let rise until the dough doubles in size. 1 to 1 ½ hours.
  • Line 2 baking sheets with parchment.
  • Lightly flour your work surface and turn the dough onto it. Pat the dough into a rectangle that is about ¼ inch thick. Using a biscuit cutter that is about 2 ½ inches in diameter, cut as many circles as possible from the dough. Peel the scrap away and put it in a pile.
  • Brush the tops of the circles with melted non dairy butter and fold each circle in half, pressing to seal with your pointer finger. Transfer to a parchment lined baking sheet leaving about 2 iInches of space to allow for rising.
  • Repeat the with the scrap until no more dough remains. Your last few may look a little wonky, but they will still taste great.
  • Brush the tops of the rolls with non dairy butter and cover the baking trays with dish cloths to let the rolls rise for about 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350* after the rolls have been proofing for 25 minutes. When the oven is preheated bake the rolls for 25-27 minutes or until they are lightly golden.
  • Let cool slightly before serving with your favorite spreads.
