Easy Cinnamon & Apple Pastries

Mmmm….a tray of sticky Apple and cinnamon pastry swirls. Ready in minutes. And vegan.


Chuck away any need for weights or volumes or rules – these cinnamon rolls are pretty much made to taste.

If you don’t have Lotus Biscoff Spread (or shock, horror, just don’t like it) you could use jam of any flavour instead.

Mix it up a bit and add some sultanas to the apple sauce. Or blackberries when they’re in season for a different take on an old English favourite – blackberry and apple pie.

The Video is, I hope, self explanatory. But if you need a more formal typed out recipe, you’ll find it below.



To whip these apple pastries up in no time I use pre-made puff pastry. I’ve not found one that isn’t vegan but its best to check the labels. I used Jus-Rol in the video but all supermarkets have their own brand puff pastry.

General Recipe for pastries

1// Make up some cinnamon sugar. I use 1 teaspoon of ground cinnamon to every 2 tablespoons of brown sugar.

2// Roll out your puff pastry sheet

3// Spread on some warm biscoff spread (or jam)

I heated the biscoff jar in the microwave, on medium power for about 20 seconds.

4// Add your apple sauce

5// Sprinkle on some cinnamon sugar…

                                       ……and roll

6// Carefully cut the pastry roll into 1 1/2 – 2 inch wide pinwheels

7// Place the pinwheels onto a baking tray lined with greaseproof baking paper. Shape the pinwheels and leave a bit of space between each one.

8// Bake at as Gas Mark 5/ 190C for about 10-15 minutes. Until golden brown

9// Make up a drizzle icing with about 1 cup of icing sugar and a dash of water and stir.

10// When baked, drizzle warm biscoff spread (if using) and icing over the pastries.

11// Sprinkle over a bit more cinnamon sugar…

        …..and serve, while warm if possible
