Apple cinnamon roll cups

December 23, 2016

It’s a tradition in my house to bake up Pillsbury cinnamon rolls on christmas morning ๐Ÿ™‚ 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..

Apple cinnamon roll cups
Recipe type: Baking
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 8
7 SP each on all 3 MyWW programs
  • 1-351g container pillsbury cinnamon rolls with icing, 8 pack
  • 2.5 cups peeled and diced apples
  • ½ Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp flour
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • ½ Tbsp melted light butter (I use Gay Lea light)
  1. Preheat oven to 375F, spray a regular sized muffin pan,
  2. Roll out each cinnamon roll and push down into your muffin cups.
  3. Peel and dice your apples, mix in a bowl with ½ Tbsp brown sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon, divide into your 8 cups.
  4. In a small bowl mix your flour, brown sugar and melted butter to form a crumble, sprinkle over your apples.
  5. Bake in oven for approx 20 minutes.
  6. Drizzle with icing that comes in the pillsbury pack, I piped mine out of a small zip lock bag.
  7. Serve warm. The weight Watcher App scans these cinnamon rolls with icing at 6 smart points, I added a point each for the little crumble on top

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚ My guess would be maybe 4-5

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚
