Cinnamon Roll Muffins are a fun twist on the traditional cinnamon roll and there is no yeast involved!
Be sure and watch the video below on how to make the muffins.
I often get emails from people who are afraid of yeast. I even wrote a post to give them a little help and encouragement with working with yeast.
But I get it, some people just don’t get along with yeast and I can respect that. So, if you are a fan of cinnamon rolls but avoid yeast like the plague this Cinnamon Roll Muffin recipe is for you! You can get all the cinnamony goodness of a cinnamon roll without the yeast.
For those who are allergic to yeast, these are the perfect solution to any cinnamon roll craving you might have.
The other upside to these cinnamon roll muffins is that they come together a lot quicker than regular cinnamon rolls do, you don’t have to let the dough rise! So next time you get a hankering for some cinnamon rolls and don’t have the time or inclination to deal with yeast give this muffin version a try.
And don’t forget the frosting!
