Cinnamon Bun Cookie Dough Bites

Introducing Cinnamon Bun Cookie Dough Bites!

Inspired by the Ben & Jerry cookie dough chunks, these chewy little bites are packed with a buttery cinnamon flavor! Perfect to have as a mid-afternoon snack, delicious frozen, and quick to prepare!

Think of these as mini, snackable, bite-size cinnamon buns!

Cinnamon Bun Cookie Dough Bites

Instead of going with a simple cookie dough flavored with cinnamon, we are taking it to the next level by actually rolling the cookie dough around a cinnamon coconut sugar filling! Not only does it look cooler (hey, mini buns!), but it also packs even more cinnamon flavor!

The cookie dough requires just 6 ingredients. Combine oat flour, almond flour, coconut oil, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt in a bowl. Next, you want to divide the dough into 5 pieces.

Flatten one piece of dough into a thin and long rectangle and sprinkle with cinnamon coconut sugar, leaving about 1/2 inch on the side. Next, you want to roll it tightly with the help of a plastic wrap into a long log. Repeat with the remaining dough and freeze the rolls for about 30 minutes before cutting into little bites!

I recommend storing these in the freezer. Yes, they stay chewy (and a bit crispy) frozen! It makes a delicious snack straight from the freezer but can also be added to homemade ice cream, banana ice cream, or used as a topping for yogurt or even oatmeal!

Cookie Dough

Cinnamon Sugar


  • Prepare the cinnamon sugar: in a small bowl, mix together the coconut sugar and ground cinnamon. Set aside.
  • Add the oat flour, almond flour, maple syrup, melted coconut oil, vanilla, and salt to a mixing bowl. Mix until it forms a slightly sticky dough. If the mixture appears too dry, add a bit more maple syrup. If it's too sticky, add more oat flour.
  • Divide the dough into 5 pieces and keep them covered to prevent it from drying. Roll out one piece of dough into a rectangle of about 8×2-inch (1/16-inch-thick) on a piece of plastic wrap. Sprinkle about 3/4 tsp of the cinnamon sugar on top of the flattened dough, leaving about 1/2 inch on one side of the rectangle. Slightly press the sugar onto the dough to make it stick.
  • Use the plastic wrap to help you wrap the roll tightly into a long log. Be patient and roll it slowly. Press a little bit at the end to seal. Transfer to a plate or in a container and repeat with the remaining dough.
  • Transfer the logs to the freezer and freeze for 30 minutes before cutting each log into mini cinnamon rolls of about 1/2-inch thickness.
  • Mini cinnamon buns will keep for up to 2 months in the freezer. Enjoy straight from the freezer at a topping for ice cream, oatmeal, or just as a snack!

Just tried these! Mine weren’t nearly as elegant as Thomas’s 😉 but they’re fun (and quick) to make and even more fun to eat!

Do you think the coconut oil could be replaced by olive oil?

These were so delicious and easy to make! Thank you for sharing this recipe! Look forward to more of your yummy recipes!

Have you tried baking them? It might be fun to make bigger logs, freezing them and then slicing and baking at a later time. I just might try it.

Long time fan; first time writer….If one doesn’t have marble to roll the dough onto what other surfaces do you suggest? Temp recs?

Kann ich die Cinnamon Bun Cookies Doug Bites auch backen?
