What’s fall without warm Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls! A load of Pumpkin Pie Spice, pumpkin puree in these simple rolls, which are filled with coconut sugar and cinnamon and baked to a beautiful golden. Then glazed with a simple coconut milk + sugar glaze. Add pumpkin pie spice or lime juice to the glaze. I used lime juice to add a fresh flavor burst to the glaze. Use any other vegan cream cheese based glaze.
