Wow you guys. I have seriously been neglecting this site. But life has got in the way, and I have been super busy with work that I really had no time to update anything since I got back.

But it was well worth the wait. I have a revamped my all-time most popular post into a little, portable version. Because we are busy people. We can't have a nice Sunday brunch every morning. Grab and go breakfasts are what we do.

So I have basically stocked my entire fridge with those Pillsbury biscuits because they are always on sale (bonus!) and I have realized that next week is going to be even busier than this week. So I need something I can stick in the oven and forget about.

So frozen pizzas and refrigerated biscuits are being bought in bulk. There goes any New Year's resolutions of "eating healthier". Maybe after this super busy week is over. I'll try making New Years resolutions for Chinese New Year. Because I have obviously missed the boat this time around.

But until then, I have these amazing cinnamon melts as an easy grab and go breakfast.

I mean, look at how they go from the above uncooked picture..

... to these puffed up muffins of pure deliciousness!

And the smell!! It is almost intoxicatingly good! It fills your whole house with a cinnamon roll smell, even though you know that you didn't actually spend your entire morning making it. Not like actual cinnamon rolls. Somehow it is just not worth the time to make them..

Now add some icing on top, because obviously you want to break all your resolutions like me.

(Worst. Influence. Ever.)

This recipe is so easy to make, which makes it even more dangerous. The hardest part is waiting for it to cool long enough to pour the icing on top.

Having something resembling a cinnamon roll but 10x tastier and 100x easier is my kind of breakfast. Who's with me?

  1. These muffins look so GOOD with the cinnamon melt!

  2. I haven't had these before but I know I will love them!

  3. Oh my goodness, my boyfriend would love these. I have to make them!

  4. Mmm I didn't even know McDonald's made anything like this, but I'm a fan! Would definitely make my mornings a little brighter :)


  5. This looks way, way too good. It's the kind of recipe that I can never make, because it'd be like cocaine to me, and I would eventually abandon every other food in my house and eat only these.

  6. I thought it would be very hard to make, seems like ingredients are simple enough for me to make. I'm a beginner. Thanks

  7. Oh those look so nice and easy to make and so good! Our little one loves the ones from Mcdonalds! I have to try these!
