Sticky, sweet, and scrumptious cinnamon twisted bread. Fluffy bread swirled with cinnamon, drizzled with agave, and topped with crushed walnuts. This bread is perfect for dessert, with coffee or tea, or as a breakfast treat.



For bread:

  • 2/3 cup soy milk 
  • 1 packet active dry yeast or 2 1/4 tsp.
  • 1/4 cup coconut sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 5 Tbsp. vegan butter softened 

For topping:

  • 3 Tbsp vegan butter melted
  • 2 Tbsp. cinnamon
  • 3 Tbsp. chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 cup agave 


  1. Warm the soy milk to 105 degrees Fahrenheit. Stir in the yeast and 1 Tbsp coconut sugar and let sit for 10 minutes until it turns foamy and activates. 
  2. Combine the flour, salt, and remaining sugar into a bowl. Add the yeast mixture and butter and mix with your hands until combined. Continue kneading for 8-10 minutes until an elastic dough forms.
  3. Place the dough in a lightly greased large bowl, cover with a towel and let rise for 1 hour or until it has doubled in size. 
  4. Then place on a lightly floured surface and knead a few times. Then cut into 6 even sections. 
  5. Roll each section out into a 12 ” long roll so you have 6 even sections to braid with. 
  6. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  7. Pinch the ends of all the sections together and begin to braid the bread following a simple over-under, over-under pattern. (as instructed above) 
  8. Continue braiding the bread until the end and pinch the sections together again. 
  9. Mix the cinnamon, butter, and agave together for the topping and coat the top of the bread with 1/2 of the mixture. Sprinkle with the chopped walnuts.
  10. Toss the twist on a parchment-lined baking sheet and bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown. 
  11. Remove from the oven and immediately drizzle the remaining agave mixture over the top.
  12. Let cool for 10 minutes and enjoy! 


* If you don’t want to work with 6 pieces of dough you can section it out into 3 pieces and braid them. This will make the dough slightly thicker and you may need to increase the baking time to adjust.
