Slow Cooker Cinnamon Rolls?  Is this possible?  Oh YES!  Totally possible.  Totally indulgent.  Totally easy.  You need these in your life.  Trust me.

Slow Cooker Cinnamon Rolls

Mmmm, Cinnamon Rolls.  In the slow cooker though?  Oh yes!

As soon as I saw this recipe in Gooseberry Patch’s Slow-Cooker Favorites, I knew I had to get in the action.  (Scroll to the end of the post for a chance to win a copy!)

Not only was it a simple shortcut recipe but hello – did you hear the works slow cooker?  That just turns one simple recipe into an even simpler recipe.  Imagine that.

The results were great – perfect for a lazy Saturday morning… or a busy weeknight too.  I’m definitely all for breakfast for dinner.

Here’s what you need:

Slow Cooker Cinnamon Rolls


In a small bowl, mix together 1/4 cup of melted butter + 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract; set aside. In a separate bowl, combine 1/2 cup brown sugar with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon. Roll canned biscuits in butter mixture, then in brown sugar mixture until well coated.

Slow Cooker Cinnamon Rolls


Place the coated biscuits in a slow cooker lightly sprayed with non stick cooking spray.

Slow Cooker Cinnamon Rolls


Sprinkle with some chopped pecans if that’s your sort of thing… or leave them off if it’s not.  Pecans are definitely my thing… so in they go.

Slow Cooker Cinnamon Rolls


Place a paper towel on top of the slowcooker & cover with the lid.

Cook on low for 2-3 hours.  I found right at 2 hours was perfect, so be careful not to overcook.

You can leave them un-frosted – or frost them. Totally up to you!  If you decide to frost them, mix together 1 1/3 cup of powdered sugar with 2 teaspoons of milk & 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.. then drizzle it on top.  I actually served my glaze on the side for everyone’s dipping pleasure.  🙂

These cinnamon rolls are so good.  I suppose you could also make these in the oven, but they surely wouldn’t be as gooey as what the slow cooker process does.  Oh my… super yum.

    I’m always on the look out for yummy slow cooker recipes!

  • I appreciated and loved waking up to the smell of my grandma’s homemade cinnamon rolls as a child. Unfortunately, as much as I enjoy cooking, I don’t have her patience when it comes to baking – especially if it requires starting at 5:00 am! This recipe is right up my alley! Thank you!

    Just had to let you know that I tried out this recipe yesterday & wow was it delicious! My husband kept commenting on how good they were. To make it extra special, I used Cinnabon flavored coffee creamer I had in my fridge instead of the milk for the glaze (plus, I had to use more than the 2 t as stated in the recipe to get it to a thin enough consistency).
