Cinnamon Roll Muffins

Cinnamon rolls will forever be a breakfast favorite over here. We used to eat those canned Pillsbury cinnamon rolls on holidays. My mom would make extra icing to put on top and you can’t convince me there’s anything better than extra icing. If you’re looking for a healthy way to recreate cinnamon rolls at home but don’t want to go through all the trouble of actually making them- these muffins are your answer. These cinnamon roll muffins are paleo, gluten free, and absolutely delicious.
