•Ingredients -2 tsp @Omnileaftea
-1 packet instant (or rapid-rise) yeast
-1 cup unsweetened almond milk
-1/2 cup Earth balance (vegan butter), divided
-1/4 tsp salt
-3 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
-1 Tbsp ground cinnamon -1/4 cup + 1 Tbsp organic cane sugar, divided
-In a large sauce pan (or in a bowl in the microwave at 30-second increments), heat the almond milk and 3 Tbsp Earth Balance until warm and melted, never reaching boiling.
-Remove from heat and let cool to about 110 degrees F or the temperature of bath water (It should be warm but not too hot or it will kill the yeast).
-Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl and sprinkle in yeast. Let activate for 10 minutes.
-Add in 2 tsp of sifted matcha powder, 1 Tbsp sugar, and the salt and whisk.
-Add flour 1/2 cup at a time, stirring as you go. The dough will be sticky. When it is too thick to stir, transfer to a lightly floured surface and knead until it forms a loose ball (be careful not to overmix).
-Rinse your mixing bowl out, coat it with a vegetable oil, and add your dough ball back in.
-Cover with plastic wrap and set in a warm place to rise for about 1 hour, or until doubled in size.
-On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough into a thin rectangle.
-Brush with 3 Tbsp melted Earth Balance and top with 1/4 cup sugar and 1 Tbsp cinnamon.
-Starting at one end, tightly roll up the dough and situate seam side down. -With a serrated knife, cut the dough into 2 inch sections and position in a well-buttered 8x8-inch square or comparable sized round pan (you should have about 10 rolls).
-Brush with remaining 2 Tbsp Earth Balance (melted) and cover with plastic wrap. -Set on top of the oven to let rise again while you preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
-Once the oven is hot, bake rolls for 25-30 minutes or until slightly golden brown. -Let cool for a few minutes and then serve immediately.
-Top with a cream cheese frosting as desired.
