Chocolate Coconut Rolls

Chocolate coconut rolls are made eggless with very interesting filling in them. These are similar to cinnamon rolls, which are sticky & yummy. 
Eggless - I followed a vegan recipe to eliminate eggs from them & loved them very well. 
Brown sugar - I always loved the taste of brown sugar & replaced normal sugar to it. I don't know if that had changed the color a little to the rolls but for sure they were very tasty. 
Glaze - The glaze was simple & I glazed it just for the pictures. I loved the rolls as they are.
