Fast & Easy Vegan Apple Cinnamon Crescent Rolls With Chocolate Glaze (Recipe)

Fast & Easy Vegan Apple Cinnamon Crescent Rolls With Chocolate Glaze (Recipe)

These fast and easy vegan apple cinnamon crescent rolls are incredibly delicious, like little three-bite cinnamon rolls with a tasty apple surprise in the middle.

In my last post, I shared a recipe for easy vegan apple turnovers. These pockets of sweet apple goodness are delicious and so simple to make, with the help of puff pastry. But I didn't stop there, because yes, apple turnovers are easy to make, but a yummy apple dessert can be even easier and faster to prepare. If you've got a package of Pillsbury Crescent Rolls on the door of your fridge and Cosmic Crisp Washington Apples in the refrigerator crisper, you can have a tasty dessert ready in 20 minutes! These fast and easy vegan apple cinnamon crescent rolls are perfect for when you're feeling peckish on a dreary winter afternoon too.

Cosmic Crisp® Washington apples are crispier and sweeter than other varieties, and naturally slow to brown. The Cosmic Crisp® was classically bred at Washington State University. It's non-GMO and a cross between the ‘Enterprise’ and ‘Honeycrisp.’ Cosmic Crisps are ideal for baking in a dessert such as these apple cinnamon crescent rolls, but due to their sweetness and crispy texture, they also make an exceptional (juicy!) snacking apple.

Fast & Easy Vegan Apple Cinnamon Crescent Rolls With Chocolate Glaze (Recipe)

For this tasty and fast dessert option, you will need a short list of ingredients - refrigerated crescent rolls (Pillsbury Crescent Rolls are "accidentally vegan"), vegan margarine, coconut sugar or brown sugar, ground cinnamon and a Cosmic Crisp apple. The filling of this recipe reminds me of the classic cinnamon rolls my granny would make, without the full day of work. 

To start, preheat the oven to 375°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Unroll the packaged crescent roll dough and separate into 8 individual triangles. Place each triangle onto the prepared baking sheet.

Slather the crescent roll dough triangles with margarine using a butter knife.

Stir together sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl, and then sprinkle the mixture equally over each triangle. I like to use coconut sugar for a somewhat healthier take on the classic cinnamon roll, but brown sugar is obviously lovely too.

Place 2 to 3 thin apple slices over the wide end of each crescent roll triangle. Then roll up each triangle, starting at the wide end and tucking in the apple slices as you roll. Tuck the point of the triangle over the top of the roll, pressing down slightly. Adjust the edges as needed.

Bake the apple cinnamon crescent rolls for 10 to 12 minutes until golden. Set aside to cool.

Enjoy these treats while still slightly warm or store them in a tightly closed container for a couple of days once they are cool. We actually haven't ever had any around after the first day so I can't reliably tell you how long they stay fresh, but I think two days is your best option.

You can top them with an icing sugar glaze - simply stir together icing (confectioner's) sugar with a few drops of non-dairy milk. But I suggest shaking things up a bit with a chocolate glaze. You'll end up with something like a chocolate-drizzled croissant with tender, sweet apple chunks inside. Cinnamon roll, crescent roll, croissant - it doesn't much matter what you call these bites of tasty goodness. You just have to eat 'em (and enjoy 'em!).

To make the optional chocolate glaze, simply add semi-sweet (dairy-free) chocolate chips to the top of a double boiler with a splash or two of non-dairy milk and a teaspoon of corn syrup (for a smoother, shinier chocolate glaze). Gently heat water in the bottom of the double boiler, stirring the chocolate mixture as it melts. Adjust the non-dairy milk and corn syrup as needed to create a thinner glaze. Drizzle chocolate onto cooled apple cinnamon crescent rolls.
