A Cinnabon Classic Roll, while delicious, has nearly 880 calories. That’s horrifying when you consider the average person only needs between 2,000 and 2,500 calories a day.

So what should you do when that cinnamon craving hits? You can get a “MiniBon” (350 calories), which involves driving to a mall, standing in line, and spending money. Or, in just one minute, you can make a cinnamon roll at home — in a coffee mug, no less.
