Fluffy Vegan Dinner Rolls Recipe with Maple Butter

  • Author: Liv B
  • Total Time: 1 hour 50 minutes
  • Yield: 12 rolls


These Fluffy Vegan Dinner Rolls taste exactly like the incredible, fluffy, sweet pan rolls I grew up with, but are entirely vegan! People with dairy and egg allergies will LOVE you for bringing these fluffy rolls to any holiday meal. Just make sure you do not skip the maple butter!


  • 1 cup nondairy milk like oat, soy or almond
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 “egg” of powdered egg replacer like Bob’s Red Mill (see note)
  • 4 tbsp vegan butter, room temp or softened
  • 3 1/4 cups all purpose flour (measure carefully and don’t pack it down or they will be dense instead of light and fluffy!)
  • 2 1/4 tsp instant yeast (make sure its instant)
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Maple Butter:

  • 6 tbsp vegan butter, room temperature or softened
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup


  1. Prepare your “egg” and let sit 5 mins.
  2. In a small pot on the stove, combine the nondairy milk and maple syrup. Heat, stirring to combine, until warm but not hot.
  3. In a large mixing bowl or bowl of a stand mixer, add the flour, instant yeast and salt and whisk to combine. Add the warmed milk mixture, the softened vegan butter and the “egg” and mix until it forms a soft dough ball, about 3-4 minutes. If using a stand mixer, make sure you use the dough hook.
  4. Cover with a tea towel or plastic wrap and place in a warm draft-free area for 1 hour to rise.
  5. In the meantime, make the maple butter: to a small mixing bowl, add the softened vegan butter and maple syrup and stir until combined. Set aside.
  6. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  7. Turn out the dough onto a clean, lightly floured surface. With a rolling pin, roll dough into a long rectangle about 24 inches by 12 inches, and about 1/4 inch thick. Doesn’t have to be perfect.
  8. Spread a thin layer of maple butter over the dough. Cut the dough into 12 strips (see video for how I do it evenly). Roll each strip from top to bottom.
  9. Place in a parchment-lined square (approx 8×8 inch) baking pan. Brush the tops with a thin layer of the maple butter.
  10. Bake in preheated oven for 24-26 minutes. If you want them to be more golden on top, broil for 2 minutes at the end.
  11. Let cool slightly before serving with extra maple butter. Enjoy!


Powdered egg replacer normally has the instructions for 1 egg on the package. Typically it is 1 tsp to 1 tbsp powder, plus water. Then you let it sit for 5 mins. You could also try a flax egg by mixing 1 tbsp ground flax with 3 tbsp water but I have not tried this myself!
