Have you ever had a cinnamon roll craving?  I have.  Plenty of times.  That’s totally normal right?

Cinnamon rolls are really just the best thing ever.  I don’t think I know anyone that doesn’t love them.  But….sometimes you want a cinnamon roll and there are none in sight.  And they’re not exactly a whip it up in a half hour breakfast treat.  Closer to several hours to enjoy the next day.  Which is still great, cinnamon rolls tomorrow – but it doesn’t exactly help with that craving.

Cinnamon roll pancakes are the answer.  These taste just like a cinnamon roll, but in pancake form.  And they’re way faster to make in a cinnamon roll emergency.  Because those are a thing.

These are some of the best flavoured pancakes I’ve ever tried.  We make pancakes on a fairly regular basis around here, but typically stick to the plain old buttermilk kind.  Although these banana pancakes run a close second whenever there’s some overripe bananas lying around.  I think cinnamon roll pancakes are going to be joining the pancake rotation for our Sunday brunch though.  They are that good.

Sweet, cinnamon filled, fluffy pancakes with a cream cheese glaze.  They taste surprisingly similar to the real thing.  But with a lot less time and effort.

They are quite sweet though, so if you want to cut down on the sweetness a bit, they are also delicious if you replace the sugar and maple syrup with a smaller amount of brown sugar.  That makes for a cinnamon flavoured pancake without a sugar overload.  And there’s still the cream cheese glaze to sweeten them.  If, however, you want a decadent cinnamon roll pancake that tastes exactly like the real thing – make them as written.  They are absolutely fantastic and definitely worth it for a special breakfast treat!

    I used to always pass up cinnamon rolls when I was younger, but now that I’m older, I’ve finally started to love them! These pancakes looks incredible, Stacey! I love that gorgeous frosting on top. I wish I could dig right into this plate for breakfast!
