Keto Cinnamon rolls

 

Keto Cinnamon Rolls

Christmas morning rolled around and I got up early to make a little Christmas morning treat.  I had never made keto cinnamon rolls before so I had somewhat planned out my recipe the night before.  

The famous Fathead Dough recipe works with so many things so I decided to go with that with some modifications.  I took the base recipe and added some sweetener and other flavors. 

I chose monkfruit , but you could easily use erythritol instead.  Either would work for this recipe.

Keto Cinnamon Rolls

 

As you can see, I am not the best froster.  Whether it is keto cupcakes, keto cakes, keto cinnamon rolls – whatever, I simply cannot frost.  It is a skill I do not have and I don’t pretend to!

This recipe makes 8  which is exactly what comes out of those little store-bought pop containers.  You remember those, right?  I used to LOVE those as a kid. 

While I don’t know how to put these in a pop container, they are a great substitute.  It got the stamp of approval from my kiddos and that is always my determination if a recipe is published!

Kitchen Essentials

It is really helpful to have a circle round cake pan like this circle pan for making these keto cinnamon rolls.  It really is the perfect size for these to bake and expand and also hold their shape.

If you don’t have one, however, you can use an 8x8 baking dish or pretty much any deeper dish.  

 

Sweeteners

I use both liquid stevia and monkfruit in this recipe.  If you don’t have monkfruit, you can sub in erythritol.  It is really a preference thing, but I actually like monkfruit better than erythritol.  

With erythritol, I normally HAVE to use liquid stevia to balance out the flavors.  I don’t HAVE to with monkfruit, but I still like to!

 

Tips

Don’t leave these too close to the edge of the counter or your dogs will enjoy these yummy cinnamon rolls as well.  Mine did…..

These taste naughty but are anything but naughty!  So enjoy!

Ingredients

Rolls

Filling

Topping

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease baking pan of your choice (round or square). Round is better!

Rolls

  1. In a small bowl beat egg and add vanilla, almond extract and liquid stevia. Set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, baking powder, monk fruit, xantham gum. Mix well. Set aside.
  3. Combine mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in small bowl and microwave for 60-90 seconds. Stirring every 30 seconds.
  4. While that is in the microwave, pour egg mixture into almond flour mixture and combine well.
  5. When cheese is melted, stir well.
  6. Combine cheese mixture with the other mixed ingredients and knead with your hands, squishing between your fingers until well combined. It might seem like it isn't going to combine, but it will. Wash those hands and then get them dirty with the dough! It works!
  7. Roll out dough in between 2 pieces of parchment paper and then put in fridge for 5 minutes.

Filling

  1. While dough is in the fridge, prepare the mixture.
  2. Combine monk fruit and cinnamon, mix well.
  3. Take the dough out of the fridge and pour melted butter onto dough.
  4. Sprinkle cinnamon mixture evenly over dough.
  5. Carefully roll up. I like to use the parchment paper to assist.
  6. Using a sharp knife (or string method), carefully cut the ends off to make it look pretty. Then cut into 8 even slices and arrange on prepared baking dish.
  7. Bake for 14 minutes and let cool for about 5 minutes.

Topping

  1. Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl and beat with hand beater.
  2. Frost rolls when they are still a little warm as it will help.
  3. Put a dollup of frosting on each roll and let it sit for a minute or two. This will soften the topping since the rolls are warm and then it should easily spread over the rolls.
  4. Server warm or cold!
