Simple Mills Maple Cinnamon Roll Muffins

Fun Fact: I used to hate cinnamon. I hated the smell, the taste, and most things associated with it actually. I have no idea why, but I was so turned off to it. However, I am so glad I have evolved since then and now I am totally obsessed. I could literally put cinnamon on anything and be perfectly content. I don’t know what changed in me, but it’s just so dang good.

My recent obsession (if you couldn’t tell) has been cinnamon rolls. I have been on the hunt for the perfect gluten free, dairy free, and maybe even refined sugar free cinnamon roll. I go back and forth on testing my own recipes in the kitchen or trying to store buy some, but I combined the best of both worlds for this recipe and made Cinnamon Roll Muffins using Simple Mills dough. I was able to add my own flair to them without having to go through the extra steps of testing out and failing with different doughs. These turned out super sweet and fluffy and I can’t wait for you to try them out. Let me know if you have any questions and happy baking 🙂


For the Dough:

  • 1 box Simple Mills Artisan Bread Mix (trust me)
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup almond milk (or other dairy free milk or even water)
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp applesauce
  • 1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

For the Filling:

  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 1 tsp cinnamon

For the Frosting:

  • 1/2 cup diary free yogurt
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tbsp water (if your yogurt is thick!)
  • Chocolate (to melt and drizzle on top)


  1. Combine all wet ingredients for the dough and mix well
  2. Add in the dry bread mix and stir as your pour to ensure the batter is evenly mixed
  3. Using a non stick or lined muffin tray, fill each muffin about 1/3 of the way up and then pour about 1/2 tbsp of the maple and cinnamon “filling”
  4. Top each muffin with about 2-3 more tbsp of the batter to cover the filling. Some may come out the sides, but that’s ok!
  5. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until the dough is golden brown. Try not to over-bake them so the dough doesn’t dry out
  6. Let them cool and top with the frosting and melted chocolate!
  7. ENJOY

  2. Hello – I am excited to try this recipe! I have a question on the mix though, as there are three different ways to prepare it for flatbread, rolls or a loaf and all the wet ingredients vary. Can you tell me which option I should follow?

    Thank you!

    1. Hey! You can just prepare it the way I said in the recipe above! All the ingredients I added for the dough is the set up for the dinner roles I’m pretty sure 🙂

  3. Hi, I am really interested in this recipe as I love anything with cinnamon!! I was just wondering how many does it make and how many calories for each?
