It’s a tradition in my house to bake up Pillsbury cinnamon rolls on christmas morning πŸ™‚ The smell is enough to know it’s presents time! It is generally the only day of the year I will bake them and this year I wanted to add a little something.. So say hello to these delicious apple cinnamon roll cups, perfect way to bulk up the roll without adding extra points..

  • Roll out each cinnamon roll and push down into your muffin cups.

  • In a small bowl mix your flour, brown sugar and melted butter to form a crumble, sprinkle over your apples.
  • Bake in oven for approx 20 minutes.

    I made these for our New Years Breakfast and my family thought they were amazing!! I snuck some flax/chia blend between the rolls and the apples just for good measure:)

    Another keeper! Thanks so much:)

      Hi, hmm I am not too sure, I don’t have a package of the rolls on me but there are really no added points so if you have a PP calculator just input numbers from your pillsbury package πŸ™‚ My guess would be maybe 4-5

  2. Hi Kate! I made these today and they’re delicious! I just finished putting the recipe in the WW app and it comes out as 7 SP per cup for me. I even triple checked that I put the correct measurements for the ingredients.

      Hi Jen, Glad you enjoyed, I did not use the recipe builder, my rolls scanned were 6 points each, the other stuff I used would not of added a point per cup so logic told me they were 6 points but go with what you feel best πŸ™‚

      • Sounds good! Thanks for the feedback! I made your Chicken and Rice Crescent Topped Casserole tonight and I can’t stop talking about how good it is…and the big portion size! I’m already looking forward to tomorrow night’s leftovers! ?
