Why You Will Love These Fluffy Banana Cinnamon Rolls
- The Banana Nut Cinnamon Rolls are the perfect cross between banana nut bread and baked cinnamon rolls.
- They’re so fresh and delicious, much better than anything you could buy at your local grocery store!
- Although the recipe may sound complex, it’s SO easy to make this delicious breakfast treat, and everyone in your household will love them!
- These Banana Cinnamon Buns freeze well so you can make them ahead and enjoy whenever you want.
- Baking Pan – At least a 9×9 inch. You can use a 9×13 inch pan but it helps the cinnamon rolls rise higher when they are closer together.
- Rolling Pin
- Mixer with Dough Hook – I prefer this one with the lift bowl because it stands up to the tough job of kneading dough so well without letting the bowl spin off like the ones without the lift bowl sometimes do.
