3/4cupheated non dairy milksuch as almond, soy, light coconut or oat
3/4cupsweet potato puree or well mashed cooked sweet potatoes ( if your sweet potato purée is extra moist, use 1/2 cup +2 tablespoons)
In a bowl, mix in all of the wet ingredients until well combined.
In another bowl mix all the dry ingredients really well.
Add 2.5 cups of flour mixture into the wet and mix well. Depending on the consistency of your sweet potato puree/ mash and the sweetener used, you will need few tbsp or up to a cup of flour to make the mixture into just slightly sticky dough. You don’t want to overwork the door as the more you mix and knead , sweet potato purée will leak more moisture)
As soon as the mixture is dough like, bring it together. Cover the bowl with a towel and let it sit for least half an hour. The dough will rise a bit.
Transfer the dough on a working surface and using some flour, Lightly roll it out into 11x15 inch rectangle.
You can go two ways with the filling. Mix the sugar, cinnamon and oil to form a paste and then spread that onto the dough. Usually this requires lot more oil.
The other option is to brush the oil on the rolled out dough, mix sugar and cinnamon in a bowl and sprinkle the sugar-cinnamon mixture on top.
Once the filling has been spread, use a pizza cutter to cut the dough into 1 to 1.5 inch wide strips.
Roll each of the strips tightly to form your cinnamon rolls.
Place the rolls in a well-greased baking dish. For the amount of dough, you will need at least a 9 by 13 baking dish. Bake the buns at 375F(190C) for 25-30 minutes. Once done, remove them from the oven, and serve warm.
