Cinnamon Roll Bites – Your New Go-To Breakfast

Cinnamon Roll Bites are the perfect Christmas morning breakfast.  They are quick, easy and bring the wonderful aroma of homemade cinnamon rolls (like these) without all the work.

It all starts with Biscuits…

These delicious cinnamon roll bites start with canned biscuits.  Yep, you read that right… canned biscuits.  That is what makes this recipe so easy, you cut up canned biscuits.  I used the grands buttermilk biscuits, but you could use whatever you have on hand.  

PS…Flaky biscuits would be pretty good I bet.

Let’s talk Cinnamon & Sugar (& few little something extras)

Growing up I ate A LOT of cinnamon toast and these Cinnamon Roll Bites remind me of my childhood favorite.  Now that I grown up a bit I changed it up a bit, to add just a little something extra special.  Don’t worry neither crazy changes, and you can leave them out but they defiantly add a little something to the bites.

First I used brown sugar with the white sugar.  I love how it caramelizes as it cooks down with the butter and adds an extra richness to each bite.

Secondly, I added in a 1/2 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice.  I love the extra bit of warmth it brings to the bites.  If you are not a fan, or just over anything pumpkin, leave it out it will still be AMAZING!

Bring on the Butter …

Once the biscuits are cut, the cinnamon sugar mixture is ready it is time to melt the butter.  

The ingredient that brings everything together is the butter.  You dip the biscuits into the melted butter (I did it right in the measuring cup) and then roll it in the cinnamon & sugar and then pile it into the baking dish.  It truly is so simple, and something the kids could help with… if you don’t mind a little mess here and there (or everywhere).

Cinnamon Roll Bites Time!

As the bites bake they fill the house with the wonderful aroma of cinnamon rolls, which let’s be honest is there anything much better?  Oh… and don’t forget the oooey gooey goodness that happens when it bakes!!

The beauty is though you didn’t have to proof any dough.  You didn’t have to roll anything out on the counter and get flour everywhere.  You also didn’t have to try and roll the dough back into a long roll and then cut it.  

All are wins for me!  

Preheat the oven!
