2 1/4 tsps rapid rise yeast
1 cup Grace Organic Coconut Milk, slightly warmed
3 tbsps Grace Organic Coconut Oil
3 cups flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt


2 tbsps Grace Organic Coconut Oil
1 1/2 tsps cinnamon
1/4 cup Grace Coconut Sugar

Coconut Glaze:

1 cup icing sugar
1/4 cup Grace Organic Coconut Milk
1/2 cup Grace Coconut Chips

Grace Organic Coconut Milk
Grace Organic Coconut Milk
jar of coconut sugar
Coconut Sugar

1. Sprinkle the yeast over the coconut milk. Stir and let proof. Whisk in the coconut oil.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar and salt. Pour in the coconut yeast mixture, stir and then knead by hand until the dough comes together into a ball. Let rise in a warm spot, in a clean bowl, covered loosely with plastic wrap, until doubled, about 1 hour.

3. On a lightly floured surface, tip out the dough and roll out to a large rectangle, about 14 x 20 inches. Brush the coconut oil on evenly, all the way to the edges. Whisk together the cinnamon and sugar in small bowl then spread evenly onto the dough. Roll into a tight roll, and depending on your pan, cut into 9 or 12 equal pieces. If using a 8 x 8 inch pan, cut into 9. If using a 10.5 x 7.5 inch ceramic baking dish, cut into 12 pieces.

4. Place the rolls into the pan, cover loosely with plastic and let rise for 1 hour, or until doubled. (At this point, you can hold the buns in the fridge if needed – if you’d like to prepare them the night before and bake them off in the morning that definitely works.)

5. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Remove the plastic wrap and bake the buns for 25-30 minutes, or until golden and cooked through. If baking from the fridge, remove the buns from the fridge as the oven is heating up. Bake for 30-35 minutes.

6. While the buns are baking, make the glaze. Stir together the coconut milk and sugar until smooth.

7. When the buns are done, the tops should be golden brown and a skewer poked through should come out clean. Glaze immediately and top with coconut chips. Let cool slightly and enjoy warm!
