Servings 8 Knots


  • Mixing Bowl
  • Wooden Spoon
  • Baking Tray
  • Measuring Cups and Spoons


  • ¾ Cup Non Dairy Milk, Warm I used So Delicious Coconut Milk
  • 3 tablespoon Non Dairy Butter, cut into 3 pieces I used Country Crock Plant Butter Sticks
  • 2 tablespoon Granulated Sugar
  • 1 ¼ teaspoon Active Dry Yeast
  • 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • ½ teaspoon Kosher Salt ¼ teaspoon if using finer grain salt
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Dried Oregano

For Brushing

  • ½ Recipe Vegan Garlic Butter (linked and inserted below!)


  • In a large bowl, pour the warm milk over the butter and allow the butter to melt.
  • Add the sugar and yeast and stir. Allow to sit for 5 minutes or until the yeast is a little puffy.
  • Add the flour, salt, garlic powder and oregano. Stir with a wooden spoon or with your hands until a shaggy dough forms.
  • Lightly flour your work surface and scrape the dough onto the counter. Knead for 5 minutes or until the surface of the dough becomes smooth.
  • Lightly oil the bowl, return the dough to the bowl and cover with a damp dish towel. Allow to rise for 1 ½ hours or until the dough doubles in size.
  • Line a baking tray with parchment.
  • Lightly flour a work surface and turn the dough out onto it.
  • Press the dough out into a 12"x6" rectangle with the 12 inch side running parallel to the edge of the counter.
  • Cut the rectangle in to 8 strips. The strips will be about 1.5 inches by 6 inches.
  • Working one at a time, take a strip in your hand by one end. Take the other end and wrap it around your fingers and then back into the loop that was just creates, creating a knot. Place the knot onto the baking tray and repeat.
  • Cover the knots once more with the damp dish towel and allow them to proof for 30 minutes more.
  • Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350* F and melt the Vegan Garlic Butter. There should be garlic butter left to brush the knots with when they are done baking.
  • After 30 minutes have elapsed, brush each knot with melted garlic butter then bake in a 350* F oven for 24-26 minutes or until the knots are lightly golden brown.
  • While the knots are hot, brush them with the remaining garlic butter.
  • Allow to cool slightly and serve.
  • Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days or place inot a bag and freeze for up to a month.
