Cinnamon Roll Bites

Ooey, gooey Cinnamon Roll Bites give you all the great taste of a cinnamon roll without all the work!

Cinnamon Roll Bites from Table for Seven

Don’t you love short-cuts? I sure do!

They are a tremendous help at times. Especially, when it comes to cinnamon rolls. 🙂

Of course, we are serious cinnamon rolls eaters: note: here and here and here.

But, as much as we love them, sometimes, we (my kids..OK, me too) want something cinnamon roll-y but, do not want to take too much time to make.

Enter these tasty little cinnamon roll bites. They are a delicious, little treat if you want something sweet for breakfast or even dessert.

Cinnamon Roll Bites close-up

Here is a breakdown:

  • You start with a tube of refrigerator biscuits. Any brand will work, just keep note of the size of your package and type of biscuits. I usually use a 12 oz package of buttermilk biscuits. If you use a “flaky” biscuits of a different size package, they will still work, but, your ingredient may need to be adjusted.
  • Cut the biscuits into 4 separate pieces. A pair of sharp kitchen scissors works great for this job.
  • Toss the biscuit pieces with the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture. You can do this in large bowl or use a large freezer bag. Both ways work fine.
  • Add coated biscuit pieces to your pan. Use an 8 x 8 pan and don’t forget to grease it!
  • After baking, let them cool about 5 minutes before adding the glaze.
  • Be prepare to eat several of these. Of course, be careful..they are hot!

These Cinnamon Roll Bites take no time at all to make and will vanish quicker than a blink of an eye. Try them immediately and you will see!

    These are great and so versatile. Easy to do when the grandkids visit. Imagine dessert: 3 warm cinnamon drops with a small scoop of French vanilla ice cream, drizzled with… Oh my. Wonderful.

  2. Jocelyn says:

    Fabulous and easy recipe, my husband can’t stop talking about these. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Holly says:

    These turned out very good! Easy to make and the family all like them! I like to mix white sugar and brown sugar to dip the biscuit pieces in. Thanks for the great recipe!

  4. Brenda says:

    Made these with crescent rolls! Delish.

  5. Diana says:

    Sooooo good!

    You might want to tweak the recipe ingredients to say 1 tbsp of IMITATION vanilla. I used real vanilla extract and it was soooo bitter tasting. I didn’t use the drizzle but I really didn’t have to!

  6. Summer says:

    What temperature do we preheat the oven to? 350? Also cook them for 20 minutes?

  7. Ashley says:

    Curious if leftovers should be refrigerated?

    • Erin Table for Seven says:

      Hi Ashley- We usually don’t have many leftovers of these 🙂 But, when we do, I stick them in the fridge.

  8. Theresa says:

    Yummy ! I made these for my family and they were delicious! I used flaky biscuits and they came out beautifully. I will definitely be making these again! You could reduce the brown sugar if you prefer a less sweet dessert.

  9. Beth says:

    I actually made these and they were so good. Hosted neighborhood people and made them to go along with chili. Rave reviews! Thank you for sharing!

    • Marcia says:

      I made them. I immediately got a headache after eating them. They are much too sweet. Cut the sugar by 1/3.

    • Erin Table for Seven says:

      Glad they were a hit Beth! Thanks for the feedback 🙂

  10. Jeanne Mason says:

    Absolutely the best way to use a can of biscuits!! I could have eaten the whole pan!!❤️

  11. Deborah says:

    So delicious!!!! I’ve made them twice now for me and my husband… one recipe with buttermilk biscuits and one with flaky biscuits… and if there’s any left over for a couple of days, the flaky biscuits tend to retain their lightness and fresh taste and are not as dense and hard as the buttermilk. They are both delish, however in the future I’m sticking with flaky biscuits.

    • cindy says:

      hello, can you please post how you adjusted recipe using the flaky biscuits?

  12. Diana says:

    Eating these right now and they are amazing. So easy and quick to put together also. So glad the biscuits came in a two pack because they will be made again very soon.

  13. Dottie says:

    Has anyone tried putting it together nite before and baking in the morning

  14. Sheri says:

    Delicious, my family has already requested a repeat batch of these . So easy to make.

  15. Liz says:

    Has anyone tried prepping the biscuits in the pan the night before? Wondering if they will hold overnight or get too gooey.

    • Erin Table for Seven says:

      Hi Liz- Sorry, I haven’t tried this yet, but, hopefully, someone has given a try and will respond. Let me know if you do the early prep and how it works out!

      • KSD says:

        Once you open the can of biscuits and expose them to air, they should be baked immediately. If you open and refrigerate overnight, they will not rise properly.

  16. Yasha says:

    We LOVED IT! It was easy and delicious. My kids loved it.

    Thank you thank you

  17. Becky says:

    I doubled the cinamon and butter and mixed all that together first. Then completely coated the biscuit pieces in that. Perfect — did not even need icing.

  18. Sam says:

    Also works with cannabutter. Yummy!

  19. Lisa says:

    I might also try dipping the bread in butter before coating. This is a great recipe to build upon. I added maple syrup and maple extract to the icing it was good.

    • joanofark06 says:

      That’s what I did too! Coated the raw biscuit with butter first, and then the brown sugar/cinnamon coating. It just seemed like the dry raw dough wasn’t getting enough of that mixture on it, so the melted butter was first. Didn’t see the need for the “drizzling” after. And then, I had the “butter tastin” Pillsbury Grands biscuits, too….lol.
      They puffed up beautifully, and tasted great.

  20. Lisa says:

    This was a very simple recipe. I loved that it took just a little bit of time to put it together. My husband thought it needed a little more cinnamon. I think I might like to try to add some white sugar next time. We also thought we might enjoy using frozen bread dough instead of packaged biscuits. I loved that it didn’t get hard and chewy after cooling like when you make it in a bundt pan as monkey bread.

    • Beverly L. Siferd says:

      The recipe I have calls for regular sugar. Yummmy!!!!!! Never tried with brown sugar. Probably wont either. These are so good

      • Erin Table for Seven says:

        Thanks Beverly! Glad they were a hit!

      • Beverly L. Siferd says:

        Also made with the cinnamon rolls. Extra good, I love cinnamon

  21. Whitney says:

    I loved this recipe but next time I might omit the vanilla it just seems really strong. Also I sprinkled more of the cinnamon/ brown sugar over the bites before the oven and a little after. Not that healthy but AMAZING!

    • Erin Table for Seven says:

      Ha! Great ideas glad you enjoyed them!

  22. Amber says:

    So amazing and yummy!! Also super easy for the kiddos to help !

  23. CarrollMcB says:

    Yummy and ooey and gooey and delish! Used MAPLE extract instead vanilla. Kiddos loved them

  24. Lori says:

    Yummy! And so easy!

  25. Chazjay says:

    My 4 & 7 yr-old grandsons, (and their dad), loved these. The grands enjoyed helping make them. I added maple flavoring to the glaze, as that’s how we do cinnamon rolls. Thanks for sharing!

  26. Charlotte Jay says:

    My grandsons, (and their dad), loved these. The 4 & 7 yr olds helped make them. I added maple flavoring to the glaze as it’s our favorite on cinnamon rolls. Thank you for sharing.

  27. Misty says:

    So good, and so simple! Will definitely be making these often

    • Erin Table for Seven says:

      Thanks for letting me know Misty! So glad you liked them.

  28. Sara hutchings says:

    I ended up cutting the dough into smaller pieces and added a bit of nutella to the glaze. topped off with some fresh assortment of berries! oh La La. so gzood!

  29. Jenny says:

    These are incredible. I had to make do with what ingredients I had in my house at the time of baking these. I did not have any milk so I subbed in Himalayan salted caramel coffee creamer and skipped the vanilla. Holy WOW!! It brought these to the next level!! I would highly recommend! We have made these three times now and are obsessed!

  30. Tonya says:

    Ridiculously easy and sooo good❤️

  31. Marla says:

    was supposed to be 5 stars on my earlier post

  32. Marla says:

    My family loves these!I make them about once a week! Thanks

  33. Hanna says:

    Good but in my opinion there is way too much vanilla. I would cut it in half.

  34. diamond42377 says:

    These are so easy and delish! I have made them twice already. You have saved me a trip to the donut shop. I will be making with the kids next time. 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  35. erin says:

    Agreed Camil! Glad you enjoyed them 🙂
