Slow Cooker Cinnamon Rolls

Do you love cinnamon rolls? Then you absolutely have to try these slow cooker cinnamon rolls. They make for a perfect prepare-ahead breakfast!

At first blush, it might seem a bit odd to use premade cinnamon roll dough to make slow cooker cinnamon rolls over the course of 8 hours. But here is what is so cool about these easy to make rolls.  You can put them in before bed and wake up to a fabulous smelling house and warm, tasty cinnamon rolls. These also greatly improve the taste and texture of the premade dough version when simply baked in the oven. They basically become like cinnamon monkey bread. Yum!

Need a slow cooker? Go shopping for one here! Or, better yet, get an Instant Pot, which can also act as a slow cooker. You can see a comparison of Instant Pot models here.

The ingredients are simple since you start off with premade dough. Just get two cans of your favorite brand. Be sure to spray your slow cooker with a non-stick spray or use a slow cooker liner.

For this recipe, the cinnamon roll dough is torn into pieces and about half is placed into the slow cooker in a single layer.

Next, a mix of milk, eggs, syrup, cinnamon, and vanilla extract is poured over the dough. Then the remaining pieces of are added on top. Slow cook the rolls for 6 to 8 hours on low. They will get nice and brown but stay soft.

Once finished, add the icing from the premade dough cans and serve those babies up!

These seriously are super good!
