A new twist on the old twist…Being greeted with sweet smells parading in your kitchen is nothing short of comforting. We all love a classic sweet cinnamon roll!

The sticky cinnamon sweet, melt-in-your-mouth, twisted dough balls of pastry heaven are irresistable, but just wait until you’ve tried it with apple filling instead! At YOGI TEA®, we love to promote growth and the habit of introducing new things to your life. Hence, we encourage you to revitalise your kitchen and have fun creating our vegan kanelbullar with apple recipe using our beloved YOGI TEA® Classic as an ingredient! Get started and follow our easy instructions below…


Ingredients for 10 buns

Preparation time: 20 minutes + 90 minutes proving time + 30 minutes baking time



For the yeast dough

● 130 ml soya milk or other plant-based milk
● 2 x YOGI TEA® Classic tea bags
● 4 g dried yeast
● 30 g raw cane sugar
● 4 tsp rapeseed oil
● 300 g Type 630 spelt flour



For the filling

● 1 x YOGI TEA® Classic tea bag
● 60 g dates
100 g apple
● 2 tsp rapeseed oil



For the topping

● 100 g vegan cream cheese
● 50 g chopped pistachios



For the dough

  • Bring the soya milk to a brief boil and place two tea bags in it to steep for 7 minutes. Then leave to cool to room temperature and remove the tea bags.
  • Dissolve the yeast and sugar in the cooled milk. Add to the flour together with the oil and knead into a smooth dough for 10 minutes using a kitchen aid or your hands.
  • Cover with a clean kitchen towel and leave to prove in a warm place for one hour until the dough has doubled in size.

For the filling

  • Pour 40 ml of boiling water over the dates and one YOGI TEA® Classic tea bag and leave to steep for 10 minutes. Then remove the tea bag.
  • Blend the dates and tea into a smooth purée. Cut the apple into small cubes and mix into the date purée together with the oil.
  • On a work surface well-dusted with flour, roll out the dough to a 1/2 cm thickness approx. 40 x 15 cm in size, then spread with the filling and tightly roll up the dough length-wise.
  • Cut into 3-4 cm pieces with a sharp knife and place approx. 2 cm apart in a greased casserole dish.
  • Cover and leave to prove in a warm place for another 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 190 °C.
  • Bake the kanelbullar for 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Leave to cool and serve lukewarm and topped with cream cheese and chopped pistachios.
