Everyone loves a good doughnut, but we don't love the messy frying process of making them. These Better Than Anything Cinnamon Breakfast Bites are like a cross between pull-apart bread and cinnamon donuts, and the best part is, they're super easy to make! Simply make the dough, roll it into balls, and bake. Since they're made from scratch, they taste amazing, and chances are you already have the ingredients on hand.

I agree that this reminds me of monkey bread. What a good breakfast!

The way this is made reminds me of monkey bread. I think the crisp rice cereal will really add to this by giving it a unique texture and a bit of crunch. That is if they stay crunchy after being baked. My youngest has recently taken to cooking. I am sure he will love making these.

When I first saw this recipe, I was thinking they were little deep fried balls of dough coated in cinnamon sugar but boy, was I wrong! These little cinnamon bites coated in cereal are a tiny bit more nutritious. To answer some of the questions, I think any cereal would work so pick your favorite!

I think the rice cereal creates little air pockets in the dough so that the balls don't collapse, but I'm not sure. I didn't have any rice crispies on hand, but I had special k and used that, crushed up a little bit, since it seemed pretty similar and they turned out good. My son loved them! They don't really come out looking like round balls when they are done though, but my four year old didn't seem to care much.

I don't know what the rice cereal does in this recipe. It does remind me of monkey bread, too, but I like to try easy cinnamon breakfast treats and these look yummy. I'm sure they smell wonderful when they are baking, as all cinnamon recipes do. I wonder if I should use Rice Krispies or Rice Chex?

What is the reason for crisped rice cereal? Is it to make it crispy like a fried donut? The finished product does look good, but the baking powder amount seems a bit high for the amount of flour in it. It makes me think of monkey bread. I am gluten free and can substitute the flour. Maybe I will try using crushed rice chex for the Rice Krispies.
