Cinnamon Roll Waffles

Jump to Recipe

I am a huge fan of cinnamon rolls as well as waffles. Time to combine the two amazing breakfast items into one, yummy cinnamon roll waffles!

Growing up I loved making homemade cinnamon rolls and waffles. Sometimes you don’t always have the time to make the dough from scratch for the cinnamon rolls and you wind up buying the store-bought Pillsbury in a container kind. I love taking those containers of cinnamon rolls and making waffles with them.

Cinnamon roll waffles are so easy to make, if I can do it, you can do it. Let’s get started!

Step 1: Gather the ingredients

In order to make these super easy cinnamon roll waffles you need just a few ingredients and tools:

  • Cinnamon Roll dough – I use those Pillsbury Cinnabon ones, but you can use whatever brand that you like. Of course, you could use my homemade cinnamon roll dough as well.
  • Cooking spray
  • Toppings – I like to add fresh fruit like strawberries, bananas, etc.

  • Waffle Iron
  • Fork or tongs

Step 2: How to make cinnamon roll waffles

Four cinnamon rolls on a waffle iron.

Begin by heating up your waffle iron. Make sure to spray it with cooking spray as well. My waffle iron has an indicator light that tells me when it is heated.

If yours doesn’t have one, just let it heat up for about 5 minutes or so.

Open that canister of unbaked cinnamon roll dough, and place 4 of them in the center of the waffle iron.

Now close the waffle iron and cook them like you would normal homemade waffles or sugar waffles. Sugar waffles are a little closer to these since they are made from a dough as well, and not a batter like classic American waffles.

Again, my waffle iron has an indicator light that tells me when the waffles are done. If you don’t have one, just cook them for 4 to 6 minutes or so until they are nice and golden brown. Super easy right?

Use a fork to take the waffles off of the hot iron and place them onto a plate. Then use the icing that came with the canister of cinnamon rolls and spread it on.

Top the cinnamon roll waffles off with fresh fruit like sliced strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, etc.

I don’t normally put syrup on these because the glaze is already sweet. Although you certainly could forgo the icing and use some sort of syrup, like maple syrup, or even use this homemade strawberry sauce.

This is such a quick and easy breakfast or snack to make. Enjoy!

How long do cinnamon roll waffles last?

They are best eaten fresh, but you can keep any leftovers in an airtight container for a few days in the fridge. You can freeze them as well if you like.
