Easy Cinnamon Roll Bites

This Easy Cinnamon Roll Bites recipe is a great way to turn a tube of refrigerated biscuits into an amazing breakfast. The bites are coated in cinnamon and brown sugar and baked until golden. A sweet glaze drizzled over them is the finishing touch. And the best part. 🙂

These Cinnamon Roll Bites are very difficult to stop eating. They’re best warm from the oven when their gooeyness is at its peak. They are like Monkey Bread except they are spread out more so there are tons more cranies for the glaze to seep down into.

How to Make Easy Cinnamon Roll Bites:

  • You’ll start with a tube of refrigerated biscuit dough. I typically use Pillsbury Grands, either homestyle or southen-style.
  • Cut each biscuit in fourths and dip in melted butter.
  • Then roll them in a mixture of cinnamon and brown sugar.
  • Place them in a greased 9×13-inch pan and bake them for 18 to 22 minutes.
  • To make a glaze, whisk together 2 tablespoons of melted butter, 1 cup of powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon of vanilla and enough milk to make it a good consistency for drizzling.

Tips for making:

  • You can assemble the bites the night before. Just be sure to wrap them well with plastic wrap so they don’t dry out. Refrigerate them overnight.
  • They are best eaten right away, but can be reheated the next day for an almost as good breakfast.

  1. So simple to make and so yummy!
    I was craving some cinnamon rolls this morning for a Sunday morning breakfast and did not have time to make them from scratch. I found your recipe, made it, and everyone thought it was delicious! Will definitely make again!

    I made this recipe for my great grand girls on a Saturday morning and there was not one drop left. This will be a staple for breakfast whenever they come for a visit.

  3. My grandson loved these. I made the glaze and drizzled some over the bites before I baked them. Then put more glaze over them when I served them. I will make these again and again! Yummy!

  4. This recipe is exactly what I was looking for and it turned out perfectly!! Thanks so much for sharing. I plan to try both ideas suggested by other reviewers as well. This one’s a keeper

  5. Thank you for this recipe …everyone loved them!! Also good….I chopped up an apple in small bits and zapped them in the microwave for a couple of minutes, sprinkled a little brown sugar on them and put them on the rolls before cooking…mmmmmyum!

  6. I’m late to the party but had an unused can of biscuits and insomnia so made this as a surprise breakfast for my husband and son. The recipe turned out beautifully! Instead of drizzling with the icing, I served as a dipper alongside the bites 🙂
    Thank you for sharing this easy and yummy recipe.

    I have been doing this for years. Another idea is to put the dipped bites in muffin cups add chopped pecans sprinkled over each muffin. Bake about 10 -12 minutes and glaze as directed. Sort of a bear claw muffin. I love cinnamon and pecans.
