Cinnamon Roll Baked Oat Muffins - a delicious baked oat recipe that combines all the delicious flavours of a cinnamon roll. Everyone will love these.
Cinnamon Roll Baked Oatmeal
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.
Making Cinnamon Roll Baked Oats
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 a brown granulated sweetener. I use Erythritol, which is a naturally derived sweetener and is the perfect sugar substitute in baked goods like this, as it does not have that horrible aftertaste that you get with other sweeteners. It worked perfectly for that cinnamon sugar layer in these Cinnamon Roll Baked Oat Muffins . So yummy!!
Can I use any Sweetener?
I have only tested it with the sweetener as mentioned. If you are using a different sweetener, the main thing is ensuring you get the ratio correct.
The sweetener I use is generally used like for like to sugar, but other sweeteners you often need a lot less or sometimes more. Always check the packaging of the sweetener you are using, as it will give you the sugar to sweetener ratio so you can adjust correctly.
Margarine Versus Butter
I only buy butter so haven't tested this with Margarine and so can't say how well it will work. I don't like the artificial taste of margarine and real butter is worth the calories in my opinion.
This recipe only uses 1 tablespoon so it's not a huge amount.
Blending Oats for baking
You don't need a fancy blender to blend the oats, most will do the trick, from a kitchen counter blender, to a stick (immersion) blender or even something like a nutribullet.
I often do baking oats with the oats just as they are, but for this recipe to create more a cake result, it is better with the oats blended.
