Cinnamon Roll Waffles


Ever have a morning when someone wants waffles, another person cinnamon rolls, and another the ever so popular “I don’t care”? Or maybe you wake up and are craving cinnamon rolls but don’t have the time to make them. Or maybe you are just looking for something delicious for breakfast. Whatever the reason these Cinnamon Roll Waffles are sure to hit the spot! My family inhales these. There are two icing options a traditional icing and a yogurt version.

Another favorite I decided to enter this in the So Delicious Dairy Free 3 Course Recipe Contest.

Cinnamon Roll Waffles

Makes approximately 4-6 servings, made 6  8″ belgian waffles

2 c whole wheat white or gluten-free all-purpose plus 1 tsp xanthan gum (used Bob’s Red Mill All-Purpose Gluten Free and 1 tsp Bob’s Red Mill Xanthan Gum)

1 1/2 TBSP baking powder

1/4 tsp sea salt

2 eggs, flax eggs or chia eggs

1 1/2 c So Delicious Unsweetened Almond Milk Plus, or you could use So Delicious Unsweetened Coconut Milk

6oz So Delicious Greek Style Coconut Milk Yogurt, Vanilla

2 TBSP coconut oil, solid not melted

3 TBSP coconut palm sugar

2 tsp cinnamon


Traditional Icing

1 1/2 c powdered sugar

3 TBSP So Delicious Vanilla Coconut Milk Creamer


Yogurt Icing

6oz So Delicious Greek Style Coconut Milk Yogurt, Vanilla

1 TBSP So Delicious Vanilla Coconut Milk Creamer


In a plastic bag shake together coconut palm sugar and cinnamon. Add coconut oil to the bag and knead into cinnamon sugar. Store bag in the refrigerator until ready to use. You can also make the mixture in a bowl I just find it easy in a bag and fun for kids to help with that part.

Make desired icing. For traditional icing whisk together powder sugar and creamer until smooth. For the yogurt icing stir creamer into yogurt until smooth.

Preheat waffle maker per instructions. In a large bowl mix together flour, baking powder and salt. In another bowl mix together eggs, milk, and yogurt until smooth. Add the wet ingredients into the dry and stir until just combined. Pull the cinnamon sugar mixture out of the refrigerator and crumble with your hands into the batter, gently fold the cinnamon sugar into the batter, it will be lumpy and you want the cinnamon sugar to stay in pieces. Spray or prepare waffle iron per instructions for your waffle maker. Spoon batter into waffle maker and cook waffles per waffle maker instructions, mine cook for approximately 3 minutes. If you are not serving waffles as they come out of the waffle maker put them on a cooling rack, this prevents waffles from getting soggy from moisture when you put them on a plate to sit. Drizzle icing over waffles and enjoy!

    You read my mind! There has been a recipe floating around Facebook over the last couple of weeks where you take a canned cinnamon roll and put it in a waffle maker. It looked spectacular, and I was trying to figure out how to do it in a much healthier way. You did it!

      Too funny! I haven’t seen that recipe. Why it would be a little easier I like to try to make things as healthy as I can and still delicious! Thank you! I hope you like these as much as my family and me when you make them!

    What’s the purpose of the yogurt in the batter? Could I substitute something? These look so good I want to make them ASAP but I just went to the store and I’m not going back!

    • awhiskandtwowands says:

      Yogurt is used in place of moisture and fats/ buttermilk. I wouldn’t be able to say with confidence a substitute and amount without trying it. I would suggest since you want to make them ASAP to use your favorite waffle recipe and add the cinnamon swirls and icing drizzle.

    Hi I just saw your recipe actually posted on SparkPeople ( I have a question about one of your ingredients, 3 TBSP coconut palm sugar. Can you substitute another sugar for this with good results? I’m not sure I’ll be able to find that locally. Also do you by chance have the nutritional stats for that product?
