Everything you love about cinnamon rolls but in quick bread form! Sweet and spicy with gooey cinnamon sugar ribbons topped with a sweet cinnamon glaze. Bake this delicious treat for an occasion without all the work of traditional cinnamon rolls!




  • 1/2 cups of vegan butter
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 tsp of baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp of salt
  • 2 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1 cup of unsweetened dairy free milk or water (I like to use unsweetened cashew milk)
  • 2 cups of gluten-free flour (I use Bobs Red Mill 1-to-1)

Cinnamon Sugar Swirl:

  • 2 tbsp of melted vegan butter
  • 2 tbsp of ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup of granulated sugar

Icing Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
  • 23 tbsp of water or dairy-free milk
  • 1 tsp of ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F and grease your loaf pan with vegan butter
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream your vegan butter and sugar together until lighter in color and fluffy
  3. Next, add in your vanilla, baking powder and salt
  4. Alternate adding the dairy-free milk and gluten-free flour until your batter has formed
  5. In a separate bowl, stir your melted butter, sugar and cinnamon together to form a sugar paste
  6. Pour half of your batter into your prepared loaf pan and spread it evenly with your rubber spatula
  7. Spoon half of your cinnamon sugar mixture on top of your batter
  8. Using a knife, gently swirl your sugar into your batter
  9. Pour the rest of your batter onto of the sugar swirl and spread evenly with a spatula
  10. Using your remaining sugar mixture, swirl your cinnamon sugar on top of your batter
  11. Bake your quick bread in your heated oven for 55 minutes to 1 hour until a toothpick inserted comes out clean
  12. While your quick bread is cooling, mix your glaze together until it forms a semi-loose glaze
  13. Drizzle the icing on top of your loaf when your quick bread is completely cooled
  14. Serve and enjoy!
