Cinnamon Roll Donuts

If you will remember on my last post Cinnamon Roll Apple Turnovers, I mentioned I had another super easy idea to do with a can of cinnamon rolls. Well the wait is over! Now is the time to share this idea. It’s the easiest thing in the world to make. I seriously couldn’t get the kids milk poured before they devoured almost the whole batch.

2 Ingredient Cinnamon Roll Donuts

I’m not going to waste anytime today…let’s get down to some deliciousness!

  • canned cinnamon rolls
  • canola oil


Pour enough oil in a pan so your donuts have room to float. Preheat oil on medium high heat. Open your canned cinnamon rolls and place on waxed paper. Cut out donut holes. When oil is around 250 to 300 degrees, drop in your cinnamon rolls. If you don’t have a thermometer, just drop in a donut hole to test. Turn continually until you reach the desired color. They cook up super quick. Use the icing that comes in the can to drizzle on the cinnamon roll donuts.

Seriously, it can’t get any easier! I used an old biscuit cutter that has a attachment to cut out my donuts. If you don’t have a donut cutter you could use those little medicine cups or anything small and round to cut out your holes.

I know this isn’t on my eating lean plan but I had to try one. What? It was the only way I could make sure they were good enough to write up this blog post. Well, maybe I could have just went off of the way the kiddos devoured them…But where’s the fun in that though?!
