Microwave Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal in a Mug (Microwave Mug Breakfasts)

Save Recipe

Hi Bold Bakers!

No store bought, dry sachets of Oatmeal for us thanks! This Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal is fast to make but you also know what goes into this one.

I gave my Oatmeal a makeover and filled it full of the flavors of a Cinnamon Roll! Cinnamon inside and cream cheese sweetness on the outside. Now, I know what you are thinking, “Why does my breakfast have frosting on it?” But what you really should be asking is “Why don’t ALL of my breakfasts have frosting on them?”

Breakfast is the one meal that you never really know what you want or have the time to make it. I’m really bad at deciding what I want for breakfast, but one thing is for sure. Whatever it is, I want it fast and that’s why Microwave Mug Breakfasts are so great.

Customize your breakfast to how you like it. Add honey instead of sugar, more nuts, no nuts, GO NUTZ!

Sticking with something sweet for breakfast then what about a Pop Tart in a Mug? I heard it called “A game changer in this space” (ok, it was me, I said that).

If a Pop Tart in a Mug isn’t enough then how about my brand new Mugrito? It’s a Breakfast Burrito all mixed and cooked in the one mug. It’s perfect for kids and college students trying to cook a whole meal easily for themselves.

Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal in a Mug (Microwave Mug Breakfasts)
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Author:
Serves: 1 serving
Ingredients
  • 4 tablespoons quick cooking oats
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • ½ cup (4oz /115g) water
  • 4 tablespoons milk (regular or dairy free)
  • Glaze
  • ¼ cup (1oz/ 30g) cream cheese, softened
  • 2 teaspoons milk
  • 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • ⅛ teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
Instructions
  1. In a large microwavable mug add in the oats, cinnamon, sugar, milk and water and stir. You need to use a large mug as the mix can bubble up .
  2. Place in the microwave and cook for 1 minutes. Stir the oatmeal and then continue cooking at 20-30 seconds or until the oatmeal is cooked. Keep a close eye as it cooks as you don’t want it to overflow in your microwave. The cook time is based on my microwave which is 1200W so your timing maybe vary depending on your microwave.
  3. Cream Cheese Glaze: Microwave cream cheese in a small bowl for about 10 seconds until soft. Stir in confectioners' sugar, milk and vanilla until creamy.
  4. Swirl the cream cheese glaze over your hot oatmeal and scatter some toasted pecans on top.

I’m sure by now you know that if it can be made in a mug, I can make it, like Mug PizzaMicrowave Jelly Donut (Mugnut) and 50+ more sweet and savory recipes. Make sure to check them all out!

    I’m planning on using this recipe at my friends house!!! It looks AMAZING!!!! So excited to try it!

    • Gemma Stafford on August 27, 2017 at 7:53 pm

      Good luck with it!!! Hope they like it 🙂

  2. Rachael C. on April 6, 2017 at 7:51 am

    Gosh this is making me so hungry!

  3. Jennifer Shedd-Watters on February 20, 2017 at 11:54 am

    It was delicious and that was after I did the changes. The changes were
    to keep the calories down only had regular cream cheese which made it higher calories but tasty!

    • Gemma Stafford on February 20, 2017 at 12:54 pm

      Good job Jennifer, sometimes reducing the quantities too is the answer, particularly for frosting 🙂

  4. Lou Marchbank on January 25, 2017 at 2:33 pm

    I put the ingredients into Livestrong’s My Plate, a site I use to track my calories, fat, fiber, protein, etc. For this recipe, as written, and using 2% milk, the calorie total is 402, 34 grams of sugar, 63 grams of carbs, 13 grams of fat and 9 grams of protein. Oh, and 4 grams of fiber. You can reduce the calories by using skim milk, red. fat cream cheese, subbing some of the sugar with stevia or splenda.

    • Gemma Stafford on January 27, 2017 at 2:06 am

      Lou, you are a genius, that is a great help, thank you,
      Gemma 🙂

  5. Josh Dean on December 11, 2016 at 10:27 am

    This recipe was amazing ? I love the flavours it holds. I think all of your recipes are great ? and I hope you continue making more

    • Gemma Stafford on December 12, 2016 at 1:31 am

      Hi Josh,
      Thank you so much for your kind words, I appreciate them. Stay tuned, lots more coming your way,
      Gemma 🙂

    Hi, I’m in love with steel cut oats. Any ideas how to convert this awesome recipe to accommodate the longer cooking variety. Or what do you think would happen if I soaked them in the overnight mason jar method prior to popping them in the microwave in the morning. Thanks and love the website!

    • Gemma Stafford on November 4, 2016 at 3:02 am

      Hi there, yes I do think they will need overnight soaking. As these recipes require a small amount of ingredients, it will not be too much waste to try this out, it is worth it! Gemma 🙂

  7. Iordan Chalakov on September 15, 2016 at 5:18 am

    Hey,
    I couldn’t find what the macros of this recipe were.I’d be thankful to find out somehow.

  8. Michelle on September 11, 2016 at 9:32 am

    This was Super! Another great recipe by Gemma Stafford! First recipe I actually made of yours, and it turned out great, I will continue to make more of your recipes! I had a delicious breakfast thanks to you,
    Michelle

    • Gemma Stafford on September 12, 2016 at 1:37 am

      Hi Michelle, i am glad to hear that! It is great to have you with us, and trying the recipes too, well done you, Gemma 🙂

  9. Gaby Noble on August 19, 2016 at 4:24 pm

    I really do not like oats or oatmeal, but this is the first time I am able to eat oatmeal and enjoy it. It is also the first meal I have had for breakfast that makes my tummy feel better and doesn’t end up making it hurt, THANKS <3 <3 😀

    • Gemma Stafford on August 20, 2016 at 5:23 am

      Yea! thatt is great. Oats are brilliant for breakfast, I am happy that this is working for you. 🙂

  10. lara on August 3, 2016 at 3:37 am

    it was too bad. it was too watered down .

    • Gemma Stafford on August 4, 2016 at 1:44 pm

      sorry to hear that, It should be like that. It sounds like maybe it needed more cooking.

  11. Dessert Ideas on July 28, 2016 at 8:03 am

    Hi Gemma, I’m not a big fan of oatmeal. But when I went through this recipe I feel i must try this very soon. And Images are amazing.

    • Gemma Stafford on July 28, 2016 at 1:30 pm

      Thank you for that! do try this, oatmeal is such a great ingredient,
      Gemma 🙂

  12. Nikki on July 12, 2016 at 8:26 pm

    This was really satisfying. I would take a picture but it would be of a now empty mug. LOL Thanks, Gemma!

    • Gemma Stafford on July 13, 2016 at 1:49 pm

      Hi Nikki,
      this is really what I love to hear, good job you!
      Gemma 🙂

  13. BrittanyHarrison on July 12, 2016 at 5:25 pm

    This was SO GOOD. Tastes just like a cinnamon bun (but much quicker to make). Anything with brown sugar and cinnamon is sure to be a hit in our house.

    Worked perfectly with quick cooking steel cut oats which is what I had on hand. Thanks as always Gemma!

    • Gemma Stafford on July 13, 2016 at 2:24 pm

      Hi Brittany,
      I am really happy to hear that, thank you so much for letting me know,
      Gemma 🙂

  14. Joann on July 10, 2016 at 1:33 pm

    It sounds delicious,I love oatmeal and farina when it’s cold outside

    • Gemma Stafford on July 11, 2016 at 2:51 am

      Hi Joann,
      Me too, and it really is nutritious, keeps you fueled up for hours!
      Gemma 🙂

  15. Sarah Hvassum on July 10, 2016 at 10:00 am

    Hi Gemma, what a lovely recipe. I am defently trying this out soon. Thanks for your time to make all of these kind of recipes. There is not one recipe, there hasen’t been good.
    I love seing your passion for baking, that passion there is in my heart too.

  16. Elsie Dexter on July 10, 2016 at 1:03 am

    Any possibility of having calorie counts posted with recipes? Not that I go by calories but be nice to know when choosing your goodies. Thanks! And thanks for the GREAT recipes

    • Gemma Stafford on July 10, 2016 at 1:54 am

      Hi Elise,
      This is an area that I need to pay more attention to! I have added nutritional information to some recent recipes, and I will get to the habit of this as time goes on. can take it that there are about 110 calories in 6 oz of cooked oatmeal, this may help you. Thank you for being in touch,
      Gemma 🙂

  17. Sharon Nanny on July 8, 2016 at 2:40 am

    I only have Bob’s Red Mill gluten free old fashioned oats for my smoothies to use. I may try this. Not a fan of cooked oat meal, but I might give it a try and try it. LOL.

    • Gemma Stafford on July 9, 2016 at 1:33 pm

      Hi Sharon,
      Do try this, you have been so good at experimenting to date!
      Gemma 🙂
