Cinnamon Roll Snowflake Recipe

Vegan cinnamon snowflake aka cinnamon bun flower

Here’s another recipe from me that came together in a hurry and turned out too good to keep from you: a vegan cinnamon snowflake. Why is it called that? Because the result really does look like a snowflake ❄️! Alternatively, you could also call it a cinnamon bun flower, but I think cinnamon snowflake is the best name for it.

What’s more, it is so quick and easy to make that you’re bound to succeed! All you need is ready-made puff pastry and for the filling, you just need to melt the (plant-based) butter and put everything in the blender. Then stack, cut, twist, brush, done! And most importantly, it’s ready in less than 40 minutes! 🪄✨

A little tip in advance: I only found rectangular, vegan puff pastry. If you roll it out a little lengthways with a rolling pin, you can easily cut out two large circles using a cake ring or a sharp-edged saucepan lid. Then you can also use two sheets of bought puff pastry, as you can cut out two round layers from each, giving you four sheets of pastry. Here we go! 😉

Cinnamon Roll Snowflake

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes
Course: Dessert, Nachspeise
Cuisine: European, German
Keyword: vegan
Servings: 8 servings


  • 1 pan
  • 1 blender


  • 4 round puff pastry


  • 100 g hazelnuts if possible blanched, roasted
  • 150 g vegan butter
  • 100 g oat flour
  • 100 g date sugar or alternative
  • 8 g cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 4 cl oat milk


Preparing the puff pastry

  • If you have only found rectangular puff pastry, roll it out a little more and use a cake ring to cut out two round pastries so that you have 4 layers.


  • Melt your vegan butter in a small saucepan over a medium heat. At the same time, preheat your oven to 200 degrees top/bottom heat.
  • Now, you can mix all the ingredients for the filling except for the oat milk with the melted butter in a blender until everything is well blended.


  • Now place your first puff pastry on your baking tray lined with baking paper, pour about 1/3 of your filling on top, and spread it well. Repeat this two more times, but leave about 1 tbsp of the mixture and top with your last puff pastry.
  • Now fold this in half 8 times, leaving out the centre, so that you have 16 strands, which you twist outwards in pairs of 2.
  • To finish, add approx. 4cl of oat milk (approx. 1 tsp) to the remaining filling mixture and brush your cinnamon snowflake. Place in the oven for approx. 20 minutes until golden brown. Enjoy to the fully fullest!

Not for the diet 😉

As you can see from the nutritional values, cinnamon snowflakes are not really suitable for losing weight. However, I’m always the one who says that everything is okay in moderation and not in bulk. Because the dose makes the poison. I also usually only use date sugar for sweetening, which is not “sugar” per se, but consists only of dried, ground dates and is, therefore, the healthiest thing you can use for sweetening. Alternatively, you can replace 20% of it with xylitol/birch sugar or erythritol to save calories.

With this in mind: Happy baking and a wonderful pre-Christmas season! And as always: An Guadn!
Your Rosa ♥️
