Cinnamon Roll Oats

I was craving a cinnamon roll the other day so I went to my kitchen & whipped up this healthier baked cinnamon roll skillet! That's one thing I love to do, whenever I'm craving something I give myself the challenge to figure out how to make something similar in my kitchen. This 1) saves me a lot of money 2) allows me to control the ingredients that go inside & 3) gives me creative freedom to recreate something that fits my preferences!


I also made this for a brunch last weekend & it was a huge hit. People couldn't believe when I told them how little sugar is in this!

    Looks interesting...but would really like nutritional values along with the recipes...for a diabetic I feel too many carbs and sugars...but sounds tasty

      Hi, there are a lot of carbohydrates in this recipe (oats, apple sauce, maple syrup, etc.) To make it diabetic friendly, I would use sugar free options, add more cinnamon, and eat a small portion size about the size of your palm :)
