Who doesn’t like cinnamon rolls? Anyone? I didn’t think so.   The problem with cinnamon rolls, though, is they’re kind of a lot of work to make.   
 
Don’t get me wrong, when I have the time, homemade cinnamon rolls are fantastic. But on an average day it’s just not going to happen.  So enter the cinnamon roll muffin.

 These cinnamon roll muffins are great solution when time is short. They have all the yummy cinnamon flavor of a roll, but they’re relatively quick and easy to make. What makes them so delicious is the cinnamon, sugar, butter filling that is nestled into the middle of each muffin and sprinkled on top of each muffin, as well.   
 
It ‘s ooey, gooey goodness on the inside and the top of the muffin gets a little bit of a chewy, crunchy crust. They’re SO good!
 
Then, of course, you need to top it all off with a quick and easy sweet glaze. Muffin perfection and perfect when you’re craving a cinnamon roll but don’t have the time to make them!

Even if you have a dairy allergy or sensitivity you can still enjoy these muffins. Some of my family can’t eat dairy, so I also developed a dairy free option.
 
It takes just a few simple swaps to make these muffins dairy free and they’re every bit as yummy as the original version. You’ll find all of the substitutions in the notes on the recipe card.
