  • 1 can lite coconut milk
  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • pinch salt
  • 1 large apple diced (mine yielded just over 1 1/2 cups)

Crumble topping

  • 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons coconut oil


  • Preheat the oven to 350°.
  • Open the can of cinnamon rolls and arrange the rolls on a parchment lined baking sheet, allowing them to have a little bit of space. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and cut the cinnamon rolls into cubes (I cut each one into 4 strips in each direction).
  • Place cinnamon roll cubes back onto the pan and bake for 10 more minutes, stirring half way through.
  • Whisk the cornstarch into the coconut milk. Add brown sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, and salt and whisk again.
  • Add the cinnamon roll cubes into the liquid. Cover it with plastic wrap, allowing the plastic to sit right on the mixture. Place another bowl or plate on top of the plastic wrap and weight it down (I used a big bag of flour). Let it sit for 10 minutes.
  • Dice the apple and set aside while the cinnamon rolls soak. Spray a pie plate with cooking oil and set aside.
  • Remove the weight and plastic wrap from the cinnamon roll mixture. Add in the apples and stir gently.
  • Pour the mixture into the prepared pie plate.
  • Place the dish into the already heated oven. Cook for 20 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the crumble topping onto the bread pudding and return to the oven for 15 more minutes.
  • Remove from the oven. The pudding should be bubbling, and as it cools it will continue to firm up. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before drizzling with included frosting pack (snip off the corner an gently squeeze it over the bread pudding.). Enjoy!
