Crockpot Cinnamon Roll Casserole Ingredients
- Cinnamon Rolls - tubes of Grands Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls
- Heavy cream
- Sugar - brown sugar

If you want to enjoy these first thing when you wake up, and you have a timer on your slow cooker, you can schedule it to start about three hours before breakfast will be served. You’ll wake up the glorious smell of cinnamon rolls.
Apples, bananas, and maple syrup all make yummy additions to this breakfast casserole. Sliced apples can be added to the cinnamon roll mixture while they cook while banana slices could be added on top, before adding the frosting.
To make clean-up easier you can buy disposable crockpot liners. We still recommend spraying with cooking spray as well. Additionally, put a paper towel under the lid of the slow cooker to help with the condensation drips.
How to Make Crockpot Cinnamon Roll Casserole
FIRST STEP: Spray the inside of a 6-quart crockpot with cooking spray.
SECOND STEP: Place cinnamon roll quarters evenly in the bottom of the crockpot.
THIRD STEP: In a medium mixing bowl add eggs, heavy cream, brown sugar, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Whisk together until well combined.
FOURTH STEP: Pour egg mixture evenly over the top of the cinnamon rolls.
FIFTH STEP: Place the lid on the crockpot and cook on low for 3 hours. Cinnamon rolls should be golden brown along the edges and no longer gooey in the middle.
SIXTH STEP: Once done, spoon the icing over the top of the cinnamon rolls.
Can I use regular cinnamon rolls?
If you can’t find Grands cinnamon rolls, you can use the regular size. If you don’t use Grands, we’d recommend adding one more can to make up for the difference in size.
What can I add to my cinnamon rolls?
Apples, bananas, and maple syrup are all fun flavor additions. Apples can be added as a layer or scattered through the mixture. Before frosting, banana slices can be added to the top of this breakfast dish. For extra sweetness, 2 tablespoons of maple syrup can be added to the egg mixture.
Can I make this casserole ahead of time?
If you have a crockpot with a timer, you can easily prepare this breakfast ahead of time. Assemble all the ingredients in your crockpot, set your timer, and wake up to the smell of cinnamon rolls.
How to Store Crockpot Cinnamon Roll Casserole
IN THE FRIDGE: Store leftover Cinnamon Roll Casserole in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Make sure the casserole is completely cooled before storing.
IN THE FREEZER: Cinnamon Roll Casserole is best frozen before adding the icing. Store in an airtight container in the freezer for up to three months. Defrost the cinnamon rolls and then reheat in the oven before adding the frosting.
