If you’ve ever wanted to make super easy cinnamon rolls, then you need to make my Golden Grahams Cinnamon Rolls for your favorite Father this Father’s Day. I have to admit, I really don’t have a lot of experience with the whole fatherhood thing. I have father that has been absent in my life, and I honestly really don’t miss him at all. I have questions, but I think that I’m okay without them being answered.
It wasn’t until I was 17 years old that I actually knew what a father figure was supposed to be like, what a father is supposed to teach you, and the advice that a father is supposed to give you throughout life. So to the man that I call Daddy, I love you and am thankful for you! You may not be my Dady by biology, but you are in my heart of hearts. Thanks to you Dad, I know how to be the person I am, and things that I need to teach my future children. Thanks to you, I know what advice to give to my nephews as they grow into man hood, and the things to do to help my special needs sister out in life.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve known about Golden Grahams cereal my whole life. It wasn’t until recently that they, and other brands of cereal, have gotten rid of food colors. I rejoiced! I couldn’t wait to try my very first bowl of their cereal! Yes, I squealed with delight as I took my first bite, and now I get to pass that pleasure of eating Golden Grahams cereal. I’m so happy that I get to enjoy a morning breakfast with them before shooing them off to school. Yes, I said shoo! Don’t judge me.
This year, I am teaming up with Golden Grahams to try to create a super special recipe to enjoy on Father’s Day. I looked all over for inspiration, and I couldn’t find anything that I really wanted to make that didn’t involved turning the cereal into a crust for Blueberry-Lemon Cheesecake Bars, to be utilized in S’mores bark, or to be used to make Salted Caramel Golden Grahams no bake bars.
Then I realized what my favorite thing in the world eat is: cinnamon rolls! Now, I know that everyone doesn’t have time to make their own yeast dough and make them, so I’m sharing a super easy way to make them.
The couple of things I know is: 1. You’ll making them because of how easy they are 2. That man that you call Dad will love them because you made them, and they’re delicious!
If you don’t have a father, that’s okay. Make them for someone you feel is your Dad…even if it’s your Mom, Brother, Uncle, Aunt, Grand Father, Grand Mother, etc. make their day a little extra special by make them these Golden Grahams Cinnamon Rolls. It’s truly a special treat that they are going to remember you making for them, and they WILL asking you to make them over and over again.
Here’s the recipe, and I hope you enjoy it!
Golden Grahams Cinnamon Rolls
- 1 roll crescent sheet dough
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons cinnamon
- 3/4 cup crumbled Golden Grahams cereal
- 1/2 cup crumbled Golden Grahams cereal (for topping)
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
- 2-3 tablespoons milk
- In a bowl, add melted butter, granulated sugar, cinnamon, crumbled golden grahams, and chopped pecans. Mix well with a fork until ingredients are evenly distributed. Set aside for 5 minutes and let rest.
- Preheat oven to 375° F.
- Open can of crescent sheet, and lay flat on a silpat lined cookie sheet. You may use parchment paper.
- Pour filling ingredients onto crescent sheet, and spread evenly around.
- Roll into a tube shape length wise. We want big cinnamon rolls.
- Portion out with a knife. I made cut marks on mine to make sure they were evenly shaped when I cut them.
- Dip each cinnamon roll into a bowl of crumbled Golden Grahams cereal.
- Place in oven and bake for approximately 12 minutes, or until a beautiful golden brown color has been achieved.
- Allow to cool for 5 minutes.
- While cooling, let's make the glaze! Add your powdered sugar into a bowl, followed by the milk. Stir until smooth. You want a medium thick consistency.
- With a fork, drizzle glaze on top of your yummy Golden Grahams cinnamon rolls. Serve!
