Make Cinnamon Rolls in a Waffle Maker – Brilliant Breakfast Hack

Earlier this week, I showed you my kids laundry hack for organizing my kids’ clothes for an easy school morning. Today, I bring you a brilliant breakfast hack. 

This video I shot at my mother-in-law’s house with my brother-in-law. I had hungry kids, she had a waffle maker and canned cinnamon roll – so we tried it and shazam. Cinnamon roll waffles – yum and QUICK!

I was scrolling thru my old YouTube videos and realized 2 things. 

  1. This video has over 100k views. That’s crazy. 
  2. I’ve never shared it here – so it’s now your lucky day!

Make Cinnamon Rolls in a Waffle Maker

Sure, I could just stick the canned cinnamon rolls in the oven for 20 minutes – but here is the deal. I have FOUR mouths that need food in the morning and at different times. My 3 boys come down, typically first my 6-year-old, then my 11-year-old and then finally the 5-year-old. About 20 minutes later, my daughter comes down. It’s a circus.

I need a quick, easy option for breakfast. I have to pump food out and get it in their bellies asap. Our turn-around from wake-up time to get dressed, to brush teeth, to eating breakfast, to getting socks and shoes on, to making sure back-packs are ready and coats on – then OUT the door to the bus. And did I mention that we don’t wake-up early. All this crap is usually happening in 20 minutes. Insanity yes.

Just Tell Me How To Do It!

So the cinnamon rolls in a waffle maker – so super easy. Pop the cinnamon roll can. Put individual cinnamon roll in waffle maker for around 60-90 seconds depending on the waffle maker. SHAZAM, put on the icing while the cinnamon roll waffles are still hot. There you have it delicious, fast and easy! 

BONUS – all of my kids love this breakfast. Is it the most healthy, hell no. Are they fed and happy? Yes. We’re in survival mode most mornings so fed and happy – that is a total win for this family, we will take it.

We have this Spiderman waffle maker. This makes me happy.
