No Yeast Cinnamon Roll Muffins

I am currently on vacation in North Carolina…which has been awesome. We rented a beach house and since we are just feet away from the waves crashing outside, I find leaving the house…even to eat…pretty tough. If you know anything about me at this point (or follow me on Instagram) you’ll know that generally my favorite part of vacation is trying out new and delicious restaurants, bakeries, ice cream shops etc.

BUT. I can’t seem to bring myself to want to leave the house on this trip. It’s just too perfect and relaxing.

Which also means, that we have have been preparing food here, at the house. The thing about vacation for me, is that I don’t HAVE to cook…like an escape from dishes, cleaning, planning, prepping…but for some reason this time around I am not bothered in the slightest.

Maybe I am actually a beach person. Who knew?

Which brings me to today’s recipe. There are a few things happening here in these No Yeast Cinnamon Roll Muffins. First, there is no yeast necessary…which makes the process pretty quick…perfect for a vacation breakfast…and in regard to cinnamon rolls (and vacation), this is a welcome exception. ALSO, I have baked them in MUFFIN TINS…which means they bake up a little taller, rather than wider, and leave you with the ooey-est, gooiest center of the cinnamon roll effect in every bite. You in?

The dough comes together really easily…and you most likely have everything on-hand to make these today!

How to Make Gooey Cinnamon Roll Muffins

Next, pour in some milk so the dough comes together…

    O.M.G! I eat gluten free and find substituting GF flour for regular flours in most recipes work without problem, but I can’t seem to get any yeast recipes to work (there’s very likely a simple scientific reason for this, I have not bothered to look it up…) but NOW THESE I can make! I am so excited to try these out this weekend! THANK YOU! (I’m so excited, I have to type in capital letters. Nothing else will do!)

    Shelly, these are so delicious. I’ve made them twice since you posted the recipe, and they are a much loved new favorite in my family. Thank you for helping make weekend mornings something special!

    I very rarely HAVE to try a recipe as soon as I see but I loved that I had everything on hand to make these for a weekend breakfast. They were so easy and so good. The center part was exactly like the gooiest cinnamon roll – with so much less work! Thank you!!

    I just made these and they are yummy! I did have to sprinkle on a fair amount of extra flour while trying to roll it, because the dough was too soft. I do live in a humid climate, which may have been the issue. I cut the dough into 8 pieces, which made them a good size for my kids. I also added vanilla and cinnamon to the glaze, because we love cinnamon! Thanks for a yummy and easy recipe!

    These look amazing! Love the pictures, they are making me drool! 😉 Were they made in standard-size muffin tins? Or did you use a larger sized one? Thanks!!
