Vegan Maple Carrot Cake Cinnamon Buns

There’s nothing quite like a homemade cinnamon bun straight out of the oven!! Right?! Since Easter long weekend is upon us, what’s better than a sweet recipe perfect for Easter brunch?! Today I have for you … cinnamon buns with a carrot cake twist!! These Maple Carrot Cake Cinnamon Buns are filled with nutmeg, walnuts, and a touch of maple syrup and they’re also VEGAN!!

You can prep these ahead of time and pop them in the oven the next morning while the kids are hunting for their Easter eggs … and while you’re kicking back with a mimosa waiting for your delish hot buns!

Pro Tips

  1. Add grated carrot for garnish (and cute photo opp! LOL!!)
  2. If you’re hosting Easter brunch, display these on a cake stand for your guests!
  3. Sneak one before anyone else does … you deserve it! LOL!
