The 2-Minute Cinnamon Roll In A Mug That Takes It A Whole New Level

A delicious, hot cinnamon roll ready in 2 minutes is what I’m looking for! And this amazing recipe comes from triathlete and food enthusiast Mike at The Iron You, who can attest that it’s a tried as true recipe that’s quick, easy and downright awesome. Let’s do this!

This cinnamon roll in a mug recipe was made and re-made at least 25 times until it came down to the perfect texture, moistness, sweetness, and cinnamon flavor. We can say that Mike likes to make sure this recipe takes your cinnamon roll to a whole new level and will not disappoint!

The recipe is very easy to follow and can be mixed right in your mug. It also provides ingredients for those of you who are healthy eaters (paleo), like Mike. Healthy or “just make it yummy”, either way, you’ll really love this!

As Mike would say,

“Cinnamon rolls are serious business, there’s no room for error.”


Seriously and perfectly amazing…

I’m ready!
