Start your morning with a warm bowl of Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal that is topped with cinnamon sugar and a cream cheese glaze.
If you have followed me for the last few months it might be obviously that I love oatmeal. I shared my Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal in the fall, then came Cranberry Oatmeal. Now that the holiday decorations are tucked away for another year, so are my pumpkin and cranberry recipes until I start craving them again come fall.
My latest creation of this Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal has been making a frequent appearance at our morning breakfast table and for good reason, it is so good. It has all the yummy flavors of a cinnamon roll mixed into a creamy oatmeal. Unlike other oatmeal recipes I have made and tried that mix all the ingredients in, for this I like to layer the flavors. Kind of like a cinnamon roll that is layered with the dough then rolled in cinnamon sugar and drizzled with a cream cheese glaze.
I am totally craving a cinnamon roll right now.
This Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal begins with a simple creamy oatmeal then is topped with all the goodness of cinnamon sugar and even a cream cheese glaze. To save time in the morning you can assemble this the night before and reheat it in the morning. Once you dive your spoon into the bowl, you get all the flavors of a cinnamon roll in each delicious bite.
