Before we dive into the recipe, let's take a look at the ingredients you'll need:

  • 3–4¼ cups (405g–570g) unbleached all-purpose flour, just enough to form a soft dough plus a little more for dusting (can use up to half whole-grain flour—spelt, einkorn, or whole wheat, if you’d like)

  • 3 teaspoons rapid rise or instant yeast

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • ¾ cup (177ml) warm almond milk or other milk of choice (approximately 110º F)

  • ½ cup (118ml) warm water (approximately 110º F)

  • ⅓ cup (80ml) avocado oil or other oil

  • ¼ cup (60ml) maple syrup, cane sugar, or other sweetener of choice

  • 1/4 cup (56g) softened butter (can use dairy-free)

  • 1/3 cup cane sugar or coconut sugar

  • 4 cups frozen mixed berries, NOT THAWED


Now that we have all the ingredients ready, let's get started with the instructions:

Step 1: Prepare the Dough

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, yeast, and salt.

  2. In a separate bowl, mix together the warm almond milk, warm water, avocado oil, and maple syrup (or sweetener of choice).

  3. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until a soft dough forms.

  4. If the dough is too sticky, gradually add more flour until it becomes easy to handle.

  5. Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface for about 5-7 minutes, until it is smooth and elastic.

  6. Place the dough in a greased bowl, cover with a clean kitchen towel, and let it rise in a warm place for about 1 hour, or until it doubles in size.

Step 2: Prepare the Filling

  1. While the dough is rising, prepare the filling by mixing the softened butter and cane sugar (or coconut sugar) until well combined.

  2. Set aside the filling and keep the frozen berries in the freezer until ready to use.

Step 3: Assemble and Bake

  1. Once the dough has doubled in size, punch it down to release the air.

  2. On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough into a rectangle, approximately ¼ inch thick.

  3. Spread the filling evenly over the dough, leaving a small border around the edges.

  4. Evenly distribute the frozen berries over the filling.

  5. Starting from one of the longer sides, tightly roll up the dough into a log.

  6. Using a sharp knife or a piece of dental floss, cut the log into 12 equal-sized rolls.

  7. Place the rolls in a greased baking dish, cover with a clean kitchen towel, and let them rise for an additional 30 minutes.

  8. Preheat the oven to 375º F (190º C).

  9. Bake the rolls for 25-30 minutes, or until they are golden brown and cooked through.

Step 4: Enjoy!

Once the rolls are done baking, remove them from the oven and let them cool slightly. Serve them warm and enjoy the delicious combination of soft dough and sweet, juicy berries.
