How to Make Microwave Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal in a Mug

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.

Learn how to make my Microwave Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal in a Mug. It's a simple and delicious way to create a power packed breakfast fast!
Author: Gemma Stafford
Servings: 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
  • teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)

Instructions

  • 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 .
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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!

Just discovered your wonderful website. I like to make hot oatmeal in the morning.

Oatmeal 1, 2, 3
1/3 cup oatmeal
2/3 cup water
Microwave 3 minutes.

I like to add brown sugar and milk. It’s not glamorous like your recipes, but you can add whatever you like.

Love the recipe. I don’t like sweet toppings on oatmeal so I put on unsweetened whip cream rather than the sweet frosting glaze. Will make this often.

Hi Gemma,

I love this recipe and make it often! Thank you for sharing it. Would you be able to give us the measurements for the recipe if we wanted to make more servings? Perhaps 4-5 servings instead of just one? Obviously this would no longer be a mug recipe…

Thanks!

How many calories is this? I made it, and it’s absolutely delicious, but it would be great to know how many calories it is for future reference

Hi Gemma
I substituted the brown sugar for honey to make it healthier, then I left out the frosting, and I topped it with walnuts, raisins, and shredded coconut. I also cooked it in a small bowl and it was much faster. Amazing ????. I thought I wouldn’t like it cause I’m not a cinnamon fan, but I changed my mind about it, it’s so warm and flavourful. I used to eat oatmeal by just cooking it with water then topping it with healthy stuff, but this is much better. Thanks again Gemma
