Cinnamon Tortilla Rolls only require 4 ingredients, are easy enough for kids to make, and they really do taste like mini cinnamon rolls. Yum!
Why We Love Tortilla Cinnamon Rolls
This is one of those snacks that we–both the kids themselves and I–have been making for years. You can thank my 1st grader son, Ben, for making sure Cinnamon Tortilla Rolls ended up on our website finally.
“Mom, tell them that this is my recipe!” he said. Guys, he did teach me this one. He learned a version of it in preschool, and we’ve been making a 20 second microwave version ever since.
I love that they are so easy to make and a bit healthier than other sweet treats (especially if you use a whole wheat tortilla). Plus, my kids feel so accomplished when they make this themselves!
Only 4 ingredients are required and you can keep these on hand all the time. Did you know you can even freeze tortillas?
- Whole wheat tortillas – Or use gluten-free tortillas, if desired.
- Butter – Or substitute vegan butter for dairy-free version.
- Sugar – Use coconut sugar for a little healthier option.
How to Make Cinnamon Tortilla Rolls
Check out how darn simple this is. Your kids can even make it.
Step 1: Spread some butter on one side of a whole wheat tortilla or Flat-Out bread.
Step 2: Sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon.
Step 3: Roll it up and microwave it until soft and melty–only about 20 seconds.
Step 4: Cut them into bite-sized pieces. If you want to get fancy and really wow the neighbor kids, arrange them like this with a dusting of extra sugar and cinnamon. They will be gone in no time!
