What’s Inside: A single-serving cinnamon roll that’ll satisfy your craving, especially with all the nutrients from the delish white sweet potatoes which make up the dough! Enjoy this easy-to-make gooey microwave Paleo Cinnamon Roll in less than 10 minutes, perfect for any night of the week! This healthy cinnamon roll is Gluten-free, and can be made AIP with homemade baking powder.
Ever get Cinnamon Roll withdrawals like me?! I love this recipe because it is so quick and easy to make without the commitment of making a huge, messy batch! This recipe is single-serve, meaning it only makes 1 Cinnamon Roll (or 3 small ones) which is perfect for any time at all. The microwave allows this to bake FAST…and when I say fast, I mean in a minute and a half!
What’s great is this ooey gooey Microwave Paleo Cinnamon Roll can be topped however you like. Either whip up a small batch of my Date Sauce which is perfectly sweet and sticky. Or top it with your favorite store-bought frosting for ease (I like Simple Mills)!

This delicious Microwave Paleo Cinnamon Roll is Paleo, Gluten Free, Nut Free, and Egg Free. You can use whatever milk you like in this recipe as well, just enough to allow the dough to come together.
The main ingredient in the dough is White Sweet Potatoes, and they have so many health benefits and are full of nutrients!
Making this Microwaveable Paleo Cinnamon Roll couldn’t be easier. All it takes is a few simple steps, a couple of minutes – and very little equipment! In fact, you could literally make this with 1 bowl and a fork!
Once the sweet potatoes are boiled, just mix all your ingredients together to make a dough, and add your oil and cinnamon to the inside! If you want to amp this recipe up a bit, you could add things like raisins or nuts, or even some dark chocolate chips if you’re feeling extra sweet!
Can I make this in advance?
The point of this recipe is that it can be made quickly, so you shouldn’t need to make it in advance. However, if you choose to, I would recommend making the dough and putting it into your ramekin or mug. Leave it covered in the mug in the fridge until you are ready to microwave it. Something I do like doing, is making the cooked white sweet potatoes in advance (1-2 whole ones), and storing that in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days to use it in this recipe and others like my cheese sauce!
Does this Cinnamon Roll last in the fridge?
I have never managed to not eat my whole serving in 1 go! If you do find it too much for you, I’m sure it will stay fresh for a day or 2 in the fridge. Just make sure it’s in an airtight container first!
Can I make this a Cinnamon Roll Mug Cake?
Yes! If you don’t have a ramekin dish then pop your dough into a mug and microwave it for the same length of time!

Can you use regular sweet potato (the yellow version) for this recipe?
sure can! they’ll just be more orange in color.
Amazing! If I wanted to make a family batch of this and cook this in the oven what you recommend? 5x?
I haven’t tried so I don’t know how rolling the dough into rolls would be but it’s worth a shot to multiply up! Let us know how it goes if you try it.
Woah! This really delivered… so good and not too sweet, I felt good after eating it. And, I had all the ingredients on hand. This is going to be a regular!
YASS! So happy you enjoyed it…I feel the same way!
