Just wait till you try these Cinnamon Roll Baked Oat Muffins – they may just be my new favourite version.
I’d saved my HEb the other day, as I love using it for baked oats as a treat in the evening. But I fancied something different than the usual baked oats, so it was the perfect time to try something new.
Every time I got to the mall and pass than darn Cinnabon counter, that smell hits me and I get these huge cravings for a sugar-loaded, icing drizzled – Cinnabon. So far, I haven’t ever given into the temptation, mainly because I know how many darn calories are in just one.
The classic Cinnabon has 880 calories and 59 grams of sugar, yes you read that right. It’s absolutely crazy, right? So as much as I get tempted, I just couldn’t do that to myself.
So you know what popped into my head when thinking about a new baked oats recipe? Yep, you got it!! Cinnabons or more commonly known as a Cinnamon Roll.
The hardest part was how to get that sugary cinnamon kind of swirl, which is typically made using a mixture of butter, sugar and cinnamon.
I decided to keep the butter part, but replace the sugar with sukrin gold. A natural based brown sugar sweetener, that is perfect in baked goods like this because it has none of that aftertaste you get with some sweeteners. It worked perfectly for that cinnamon sugar layer in these Cinnamon Roll Baked Oat Muffins . So yummy!!
The cake part of the Cinnamon Roll Baked Oat Muffins was using my basic baked oat recipe, but instead of making one dish, I decided to opt for 2 smaller ones. Well I actually made 4 by doubling up all my ingredients, so I would have two to enjoy the next day too. But as per usual with my baked oats, the kids took one look at them and they were gone before I could even blink my eyes, so I had to make another batch. Lesson learned there really. At least it was a good sign that they taste darn good.
For the icing swirl over the top, I mixed some plain yoghurt with icing sugar and it worked perfectly. I add the icing to a ziplock sandwich bag and push down to one corner and then snip of the edge and you can use it to pipe over the top, making them look really pretty. Perfect with a nice cup of tea.
I used a large silicone muffin tray to bake these Cinnamon Roll Baked Oat Muffins in, making them super easy to pop out. But any muffin cases /dish you have will be fine, just make sure you leave enough room for them to rise. I don’t tend to fill them more than 3/4 of the way.

The syns for the baking powder is negligible for 1 serving. So for that reason I haven't synned it.
