This recipe is straight off the box except for the egg part. Just replace the 2 eggs with 6 tablespoons of aquafaba… that’s it! Aquafaba is an easy egg substitute that works great with Chēbē dough. So… quick, easy and tasty cinnamon rolls are just a few minutes away, and if you don’t do eggs by choice or by necessity, there is nothing stopping you now! (To make these vegan, just replace the butter with a vegan version!)
- 1 package (7.5 oz) Chebe Cinnamon Roll Mix
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 6 Tbsp (75 oz) aquafaba (liquid from a can of chickpeas) See note below
- 2 Tbsp milk or milk substitute
- 4 Tbsp butter or dairy free butter*, separated
- ¼ cup brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon
Preheat oven to 375F
Prepare the dough according to package instructions.
What is ‘aquafaba’? Aquafaba (bean water) is the liquid from cooked legumes (pinto beans, chickpeas, lentils, etc.). It works great as an egg substitute (3 Tbsp = 1 egg) for many applications. The liquid can be from cooking the raw legumes on your stove or that from a can of beans. With this recipe we used the liquid from a can of chickpeas (garbanzo beans). Its consistency works very well for the 3 Tbsp = 1 egg exchange.
*For a vegan option to butter, Spectrum Butter Flavor Shortening is made from organic palm oil and can be used to replace butter.
