My family eats a ton of cereal. I admit that in the morning, during the week, we don’t really have the time to make breakfast for the family. With 5 littles I’m usually running around making sure homework is gathered, kids are clothed and a baby is nursed. I wish it wasn’t that way and I’m sure one day things will be less crazy, but in the meantime, we’ll be enjoying our cereal every week day.

Fortunately, we have a little bit more time on the weekends (thank heavens for the weekends, right?!) It’s on these days that we usually try to make breakfast a little more special than the typical Lucky Charms or Cheerios. πŸ˜‰ We have all sorts of delicious breakfast recipes that we have come to love, and one of those are these Cinnamon Cream Cheese Roll-Ups. They are a super simple and quick treat that are filled with cream cheese and covered in a crunchy Cinnamon and Sugar crust. We usually have all the ingredients on hand too, which is nice. Even the kids like to get in the kitchen and help me make them (they’re really that easy!)

If you’re looking to try a new breakfast treat then I highly recommend this one. They’re best served warm but can be eaten at any temp. No matter when you eat them, I can promise you that they won’t last long. πŸ˜‰

YUM!! I have a feeling my boys will go crazy for these!! Thanks.

    Lil' Luna

    Let me know what they think. I think they’ll love them!! My kids definitely do. πŸ™‚


    Can u do this on the stove my oven went out


Thank you!!! I too am a cereal everyday Mom. And yes, sometimes I really do feel bad about it. I even have a daughter that refuses to eat cereal in the morning. She would rather eat leftovers than have another bowl of cereal. But with five kiddos as well, it’s just easier. But this recipe I can see us trying out on a Saturday. Sounds so good!!!

Janet Knutsen

i assume it is a large bar (8 oz) of cream cheese?

Cher Bartlett

I make this recipe with won ton skins, and a premade cheesecake. Fry until golden, dip in powdered sugar or roll in sugar and cinnamon mix. Yummy!

    Lil' Luna

    Ooooh – your versions sounds amazing!! Can’t wait to try it!


Can these be premade and froze?

    Lil' Luna

    I have never froze them before but I would imagine you could. I would just take them out of the freezer a few hours before to unthaw before baking. πŸ˜‰


    Hi Mary, I have been making these for years and yes, they can be frozen. After you roll them in the sugar/cinnamon mixture, place them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet, cover with plastic wrap and freezwhen they are completely frozen, place them in a plastic bag, letting as much air out of the bag as possible. When you want to bake them, they can be baked frozen, it may take a few extra minutes to cook, but that’s it. On a cold winter day or when I am in the mood to bake I make a bunch of these and freeze them when I want a snack. They are great when someone stops in unexpected.


Did you cut the crust off the bread?

    Lil' Luna

    Thanks for asking, Sandy… I actually did and updated the recipe. πŸ˜‰


Where did u get thin white bread and what kind of thin white bread did u get

    Lil' Luna

    You can find it any grocery store… it’s usually the bread that can be purchased for $.99. You roll the bread to be very thin any way so most white breads should work. πŸ™‚


We really liked these. Had friends over to try them out and by morning all were gone. I tried to make a tad healthier by using wheat bread and dipping in Cocunut oil instead of butter. Thus I felt a little less guilty but the yum was still there!


    Coconut oil! You’re a genius! As I was reading this recipe I was trying to think of healthy spins to put on it this, and I’m so happy to know you tried it and loved it! Thanks!


      Thanks, your welcome, I kinda surprised myself with that one……..yeah for Cocunut oil πŸ™‚


What size cream cheese? 4 oz. or 8 oz.


Apparently making a nutritious breakfast is not possible? These look great for a treat but scrambled eggs are easy! Sorry, I’m just trying to kick a sugar habit that started as a child…eating cereal for breakfast! I know it’s tough as a mom but something to think about.

    Lil' Luna

    We don’t have cereal every morning, but we do most… nothing I’m ashamed about. We do make scrambled eggs, oatmeal, green smoothies and other recipes too, though. πŸ˜‰

    I love this recipe and it’s a great treat for a weekend or holiday when there is a bit more time in the hectic morning routine. Thanks for sharing. But what is with all the judgmental comments above?? C’mon people, she did not ask you to critique or comment on her life, she shared a recipe that she describes as a “special weekend treat”. Robin and Nmg, you both need to lighten up……life’s too short~

    Diane Clifford

    I would think the xxx sugar could be left out of the cream cheese filling–so much healthier. And will try it with 100% whole wheat bread.


I had a problem with the temp/time. I was using a commercial grade gas oven so no issue with knowing the temp was correct. When I checked the rolls at the time to pull them out they were not brown and they were still very soft. I had a friend with me who said she had just recently tried the recipe and had to leave it in the oven for 30 minutes before they were done. I ended up turning the oven up to 425 and that worked for the allotted time. Other that that, everyone loved them! There are so many add-ins you can do to this recipe like canned apple pie filling or cherrie. Maybe even some fresh fruit like strawberries or blueberries!

    Lil' Luna

    Sorry you had problems with the cook time. I know every oven is different so you just have to work with what you have. I like the idea of apple pie filling or cherry – I’m sure it would make them even more delicious!!
    Lil’ Luna recently posted..French Onion Chicken CasseroleMy Profile


No need to rate a recipe poorly because you don’t like the ingredients. That’s like a vegetarian leaving a 1 star rating on a cheeseburger recipe! Lol. Anyways, this recipe reminds me of an old Mexican recipe. Yum!

    Lil' Luna

    Thanks for the back up. πŸ˜‰ We don’t make these often but they’re definitely a treat when we do! πŸ˜€

Pamela Hadi

These look fun and I’m sure my grandsons will love them! No worse than making cinnamon toast or toast with cream cheese and jam! Thanks for such a fun new recipe to try!!


Can these be made the night before? I would like to send them to my husband’s office.


sorry, but I don’t understand what’s so difficult about unsweetened oatmeal. It’s easy and takes 2-3min in the microwave or you can make a huge saucepan full in a couple of min. This recipe sounds delicious, but definitely is not breakfast… The only thing that resembles nutrition in it is the cream cheese. Although, it’s still probably better than lucky charms.

    Marilyn Sieck

    Nmg, Why do you keep complaining? If you don’t like the recipe, just leave. Nobody asked for your opinion. Lil Luna is just sharing a recipe her family loves.


    These look fantastic I can’t wait to try them. As for the complainers no one asked for your opinion on the recipe if you don’t like it don’t make it otherwise mind your own business


These are awesome! I’ve made these twice now for a friend’s Cinco de Mayo party. I took Susie’s recommendation this time & used coconut oil instead of the butter- they came out great! I used an 8 oz package of cream cheese & also added 1 tsp of vanilla to the filling.





Virginia McKellips

Wonderful, quick, easy to fix & good to eat!!


Hi, several people asked what size cream cheese bar. Please answer?

    Lil' Luna

    It’s 2/3 of an 8 oz. bar. Updated the recipe. πŸ˜‰


I made these with a few tweaks. I put some vanilla in the cream cheese mixture, used wheat bread, and instead of just butter I dipped them in an egg and milk French toast mixture with a little melted butter as well. Increased the baking time by 5 minutes to make sure the wet bread cooked through. Also, made a purΓ©ed strawberry sauce to go on top. It was THE BEST!! Thanks for the recipe!!

    Lil' Luna

    WOW!! You’re version sounds amazing. So glad it was a hit! πŸ˜€

Chef Nicole G

After seeing this recipe last month, I decided to make a savory version, Croque Monsiuer roll ups using potato bread, slathering with dijon mustard, ham, grueyer cheese and turkey. I wish I had pics because they were gorgeous and the perfect finger food for the party I catered. They went before I could get the camera out with demands for more!

    Lil' Luna

    Oh man, those sound AMAZING!! I may have to give them a try. I’m sure they were amazing. Thanks for stopping by. πŸ˜‰

Elizabeth Platt

Have not personally made these yet, but have been looking for easy/fast food to put on our breakfast bar at family reunions. Definitely will be using these.

    Lil' Luna

    Hope you guys like them. Thanks for stopping by. πŸ˜‰

M.L. Duffy

How ’bout some nutrition info on the Cinnamon Cream Cheese Rollups?!! They look great, but I need to know the carb and sugar grams…

    Lil' Luna

    Sorry, I don’t calculate the nutrition info for my recipes. πŸ™


Since you had to make them while actually measuring the cream cheese, could you please break that down into the ounces used, not just “2/3” of an 8 ounce brick of cc? Thanks.

    Lil' Luna

    5.3 ounces… it’s more of an estimate. I needed more than half the bar but not the whole bar but it just depends on how much cream cheese you like. πŸ˜‰

Krysten Gossard

Oh my gosh- so I am “fashionably foodie” well I was . Thank you so much for sharing this recipe . Sadly that blog is no longer active anymore, but please follow me @freshfitkitchen on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter . I appreciate the love and hope you will follow the new blog.


Shari Kalous

I cant believe these are made with regular bread! Not what I expected! lol I cant wait to try them! ANY THING with cream cheese added to it only gets better! Thanks! Shared on Shari’s Crafty Nook! My friends will love it!

    Lil' Luna

    I know, crazy, huh? They are so good and I totally agree about the cream cheese! Enjoy!!!


      Hi, my sister in law made these as one of her appetizers. OMG! Delicious! They are very similar to Churros. I’m making them this holiday. I’m making double because I know they will go fast! 5 Stars!!

        Lil' Luna

        Oh, thanks so much!! That makes me so happy to hear! Thank you for letting me know πŸ™‚


          I just finished my 1st batch. Delicious BUT some of them opened up. I followed recipe. Has this happened to you?

          Lil' Luna

          I’m glad you thought they were good! Yes, that has happened…I just keep going πŸ™‚ Thank you for giving them a try!


          Update: Everyone LOVED them. 2 batches gone. Making more for New Year’sπŸ˜‹.

          Lil' Luna

          Hooray!!! So glad to hear πŸ™‚ Thanks so much!


      Can these be made a day ahead?

        Lil' Luna

        I’m sure they could, I haven’t made them early, but I would maybe save the step where you dip them, until you are ready to bake them. Not sure if they would get soggy. Let me know how they turn out! Thank you!


Nice recipe share i definitely make it at home. thanks to share Luna

    Lil' Luna

    Thank you so much!! I hope you like them, as much as we do!!

Erin @ Making Memories

These are in the oven right now and I am so excited! I’m afraid I’m going to eat every single one of them!

Looks so delicious!! Maybe I cannot make it but I like watching these beautiful photos. Thank you for sharing

    Lil' Luna

    Thank you! I bet you could make them! Give them a try πŸ™‚


I am making these tonight and felt the softened cream cheese was very skimpy so next time I’ll do the entire bar and I did not put the powdered sugar in with it and I used whole wheat bread. I can’t wait for them to come out of the oven. Get in my Belly!

    Lil' Luna

    You could definitely use how much you’d like πŸ™‚ Glad you’re trying them out!! Let me know what you think!


I can’t wait to try these. We tailgate on the weekends and I’m always looking for a make-ahead dish. This will be perfect for breakfast at the campground prior to the big game! I’m going to freeze them as suggested by Angeebabee! Can’t wait to pull them out on a Saturday morning with a big mug of coffee! GEAUX TIGERS!

    Lil' Luna

    They’d be perfect for that! Let me know what you all think! Have fun!

Mandy lee

I found this recipe flawed. the bread soaked up half my butter and became so soggy I feel that maybe a spray or brushing the butter on would work better. also I made the French Toast version of this and it worked very well. just roll in eggs and fry until golden


these are wonderful I make them a lot everybody eats them fast

    Lil' Luna

    So glad to hear that!! I don’t blame them πŸ™‚ Thanks for letting me know that!!

Kristen Davis

These are called “mini bellinis” and my Meme has been making them for 100 years.😍 Family favorite and tradition in our house.

    Lil' Luna

    Love that name!! We love these and can see how they’d be a fav!! Thanks for sharing!!

Liss Kopa

This recipe looks amazing & a super fun treat to make with your kids;) I cant imagine why anyone would make a negative comment or obsess over the calories. I am suprised by all the Negative Nancys out who go out of their way to leave ridiculous comments. Dont make them if your worried about fat & calories & more importantly dont comment. Your recipes are Fabulous, thank you so much for sharing;)

    Lil' Luna

    Thank you so much Liss!!! It is fun and yum…hope you like them!!


These look amazing what a great treat. To the complainers no one asked for your opinion on the recipe if you don’t want to make it then don’t. My mother always told me if you had nothing nice to say then say nothing.


My aunt used to make these for Christmas brunch when I was younger, but we don’t do brunch anymore, so I was happy to find this recipe! I would rate it 5 stars, but I didn’t follow it exactly so I better not rate it at all :/. I wanted to make these for just me and my boyfriend this morning, so I didn’t use this recipe’s proportions, I just sort of winged it, using only six pieces of bread and about 4oz/half a bar of cream cheese with about 1/4 c powdered sugar. They had lots of filling… pretty decadent. I forgot to roll out the bread to flatten it- I only realized I hadn’t done it after I had already divided up my cream cheese mixture into blobs on top of each slice of bread… whoops! The un-flatteded bread was kind of tricky to roll up, kind of fragile, but I proceeded with the recipe and they came out yummy anyway. I think this is a pretty forgiving recipe with lots of room for innovation, so it’s still pretty easy to end up with something delicious even if you completely mess up like I did. BONUS TIP: instead of throwing out your bread crusts, toss them in melted butter, roll in cinnamon sugar, and bake them for 10 minutes or so for Cinnamon Toast “Fries”!

    Lil' Luna

    What great ideas!! I’m glad you both liked the recipe! Thanks so much for sharing!!


I certainly can say that it is delicious food but what if someone wants to eat it without sugar. Or you can say for dietetic people.

I just made these with puff pastry ! Will let you know how they turned out

It looks like a recipe that is easy to do and does not require much material. It will be a savior in times when I seek a quick and tasty dessert. Also cinnamon gives a very nice aroma.

OMG …. It’s Look Very tasty and Awesome I will Try In my weekend


Thank you for this wonderful recipe. My grandchildren enjoy it as an after school and sometimes an evening t.v. snack. I also have one, that doesn’t like cinnamon so after the bake, she enjoys her with strawberry sauce.

    Lil' Luna

    Perfect!! Strawberry is a great choice!! Thanks so much!


Mmmmmm…..yum. This looks totally amazing. I’m just starring at the screen looking at how delicious they look.


Cheese is the thing that always attracts me when it comes to food habits nice recipe thank you for sharing..

Mehndi Designs 2018

I’ve made these several times. Very good for quick dessert. Nutella makes a good dip but not many people like the taste. There are any number of dips depending on your individual taste.


These look great for a treat but scrambled eggs are easy
