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.
- 4 tablespoons quick cooking oats
- ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar
- ½ cup (4oz /115g) water
- 4 tablespoons milk (regular or dairy free)
- ¼ cup (1oz/ 30g) cream cheese, softened
- 2 teaspoons milk
- 3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
- ⅛ teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
- 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 Pizza, Microwave Jelly Donut (Mugnut) and 50+ more sweet and savory recipes. Make sure to check them all out!
