  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 packet active dry yeast
  • 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup, plus a little more
  • 2 tablespoons coconut sugar or dried cane sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt, plus a little more
  • 1/2 cup vegan butter or coconut oil, melted
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour, plus a little more

Cooking Instructions

Step 1

Add warm water, maple syrup, coconut sugar and yeast to a medium bowl. Stir to dissolve yeast. Let the mixture sit for 5 minutes until it bubbles to activate yeast.

Step 2

Add salt, vegan butter, pumpkin, and pumpkin pie spice. Add in 1 cup of flour, mixing well with either a wooden spoon or using a dough hook on a large mixer. Add and mix on low (or beat well with a wooden spoon) for about 2 minutes until dough comes together and starts to pull away from the sides of the bowl. (Dough may still stick to the bottom of the bowl).

Step 3

Dump dough out onto a floured surface and knead until dough is soft and elastic. Place dough back in the bowl and cover with a paper towel. Leave dough in a warm area of the kitchen to rise until dough doubles in size (about 1 - 1 1/2 hours).

Step 4

Once dough has risen, divide it into 12 even parts, and shape each part into a smooth ball, tucking in the edges of the dough underneath itself. Place dough balls seam-side-down into a lightly oiled baking dish. Place baking dish back in a warm area of the kitchen for the rolls to rise again for 45 minutes, until they have risen 50%.

Step 5

Bake rolls at 350º for 20 - 24 minutes until rolls are cooked through.

Step 6

Remove rolls and brush with vegan butter and a little pure maple syrup. Sprinkle with sea salt. Serve immediately.

Step 7 :: Helpful Hints

If rolls brown too quickly before being cooked through, cover with foil and finish baking. - Rolls make great sliders for a harvest turkey-cheese-arugula sandwich.
