Why I Love This Recipe

During the holiday season, I love preparing easy and delicious breakfasts. The rest of the year, cold cereal is as good as it gets. But there’s something about a sweet, home-cooked breakfast that makes the holidays even more cozy.

These Pull Apart Cinnamon Roll Muffins come together quickly and take just about 15 minutes to bake. You could also make them the night before, covering tightly with foil and pop them into the oven in the morning.


  • Butter
  • Pillsbury Grands Cinnamon Rolls
  • Eggs, Milk, and Vanilla
  • Ground Cinnamon
  • Maple Syrup

How To Make Cinnamon Roll Muffins

  1. Preheat the oven and grease a pan of regular sized muffin cups.
  2. Whisk together milk, eggs, cinnamon, and vanilla.
  3. Open the package of cinnamon rolls and set the icing cup aside. Cut each piece into 8 pieces, then drop them into the bowl and coat with the egg mixture.
  4. Divide the pieces of cinnamon roll into the muffin cups. There should be 5-7 pieces per cup. Spoon extra egg mixture over the tops and drizzle maple syrup over each muffin.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and fully set. Set aside to cool slightly
  6. Heat icing for 7-10 seconds, just enough to make the icing smooth and pliable.
  7. Let the muffins cool completely, then serve with your favorite breakfast foods, or as a dessert treat.


These muffins are the ideal sweet accompaniment to any brunch spread. Here are a few ideas for what to serve them with:


Store cooled muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for 2-3 days, after which they will begin to lose their freshness.

Expert Tips

  • Try your best to cut each piece the same size. This helps the muffins to cook evenly.
  • If you don’t want to include the maple syrup, simply omit it.
  • If the icing isn’t sweet enough or if it is too thick, try thinning it with. a little milk.

I used the “Grands” cinnamon rolls which are larger. This will work with the regular size rolls but you might not make as many muffins.

  1. For the French toast cinnamon roll pull apart muffins. How many pieces do you put in each compartment of the muffin pan

    1. About 6 in each one. Depends on how big you cut the pieces, but just evenly fill the muffins cups.

    1. Powered sugar mixed with water or milk an a splash of vanilla. You’ll need to play around with the amounts to get the right consistency.

  2. Hi I’m confused – you say to cut the roll into 8 pieces, 1 piece/muffin tin. So then how does 1 package yield 12 muffins?

    1. Hi Ginny, It doesn’t say to put one piece per muffin cup. Each roll is cut into 8 pieces, then dipped in the egg mixture and stirred together. Then that mixture is divided up into the muffin cups. It’s about 3-4 pieces per muffin cup.

  3. Hi there! Are these something you could make the day before – or are they significantly better same day?

    1. Because you’re using a pre-packaged cinnamon roll dough, I would say definitely eat them same day if you can. You could reheat, but it wouldn’t be as good.

  4. When you say to divide each into 8 pieces. Do u mean to divide each roll into 8 pieces? I like something quick to make or even make the night before.
