I have a confession. Until very recently I really didn’t care that much about cinnamon rolls. I mean, I didn’t hate them by any means. But for some reason I could sit in a kitchen with the smell of cinnamon rolls baking and then completely not care if I didn’t eat one when they came warm out of the oven. I’ve always been that way about donuts too… but that’s beside the point. We’re talking about cinnamon rolls here.
I remember when I was little, I usually wouldn’t eat them at all. Except when it was “chili day” at school. This was pretty much the only time that I cared about having a cinnamon roll because chili just doesn’t seem complete without its little cinnamon roll side kick. If you missed my chili post from yesterday you might be thinking this statement is a bit strange. But I assure you, it is completely normal (and delicious) here in the midwest. Chili and cinnamon rolls just go together.
Yesterday I posted these cinnamon roll’s partner in crime, my Vegan Mushroom Chili that is thickened up with pumpkin. Today I present to you Vegan Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls. I love Fall Comfort Foods. They just make my soul happy. And this recipe is no different. It screams Fall. It even looks like Fall. Now go put on a pot of chili and make these cinnamon rolls. Then tell the world about this combination because the world needs it. NEEDS.
