cinnamon bun bars

 I have another quick and easy Fall recipe for you today!

These cinnamon bun bars have quickly become a family favorite and once you try them, you will see why.

These are the sister version to my Pumpkin Pie bars which you can find here.

They are ooey, gooey, and sticky sweet, and are a fun alternative to the cinnamon roll.

Think pecan pie meets the cinnamon roll.

The crust is flakey and buttery with cinnamon goodness oozing out. 

The cinnamon filling tastes like a warm burnt brown sugar with hints of cinnamon and cloves.

The perfect pairing.

Cinnamon Bun Bars

Yield: 12
Author: Melaine Thompson
Prep time: 15 MinCook time: 25 MinTotal time: 40 Min


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, chilled and cubed
  • 1 egg
  • 10 ounce jar Trader Joes Cinnamon Bun spread


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Lightly spray an 8 by 8 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a medium bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in butter with a pastry cutter or two forks. When the butter is cut into small pea sized flour coated crumbs, add the egg and stir to bring the dough together. Use clean hands if needed. The dough will be crumbly.
  4. Divide the dough in half and press one half into the bottom of the prepared pan.
  5. Spread the cinnamon bun spread in an even layer over the dough, then crumble the remaining dough on top.
  6. Bake for 25 minutes or until the top is light golden brown. Cool completely and then cut into bars.

These would be great for Thanksgiving as well because they taste almost even better the next day.
