Keto Cinnamon Rolls

(Updated Recipe 12/3/2019)

Christmas morning rolled around last year 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 have since updated the recipe (today actually) and it is 10x better than the last. There is a lot of growth that happens in a year and these were definitely on my list to update.

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 6. BUT, you could stretch it to 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!

Do I Need To Frost These Keto Cinnamon Rolls

NO! Not even a little bit. They are moist and flavorful all on their own. I just happen to love how they taste with frosting, but it is not a necessity at all!

Kitchen Essentials

Luckily there isn’t a ton you need to make these lovely low carb cinnamon rolls!

You can use a circle pan if you’d like, but after making these a few times, I found that a muffin tin works the absolute best!

I like to use silicone ones like this because it makes them easy to pop out when done!

Having some sort of silicone pastry brush like this one is helpful too.

Aside from that – you’ll need the standards. You know, a bowl, hand beaters, spatula, etc…

Are Cinnamon Rolls Keto?

Most are not, but these tasty keto cinnamon rolls are definitely keto!

Fathead dough is so versatile and it really makes a good base for so many of these treats that we thought we may not be able to have again.

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!

Oh, and don’t forget – they make a GREAT Holiday breakfast too!

How to Make Keto Cinnamon Rolls

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Rolls

In a medium bowl, combine almond flour, baking powder, sweetener, xanthan gum and beaten egg. Mix well. Set aside.

Combine mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in small bowl and microwave for 60-90 seconds. Stirring every 30 seconds.

Combine cheese mixture with the almond flour mixture and knead with your hands, squishing between your fingers until well combined. Be careful not to burn your hands. 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!

Refrigerate dough for 10 minutes. It is rather sticky when it is warm and so we want it cold while we are rolling it out.

Once the dough is chilled, separate it into 6 equal chunks.

Time to prepare the filling.

Filling

Combine melted butter, sweetener and cinnamon in a small bowl and mix well. We will use this for both greasing the muffin tins as well as coating the dough.

With a silicone brush, lightly grease 6 muffin tins with butter mixture so the rolls don’t stick.

Roll each dough ball out into a log that is about 8 inches long and 1/2-1 inch thick.

Brush each one with butter mixture as well. Giving each one a nice coating.

Roll each log up and place into muffin tins.

Bake for 17-20 minutes and let cool for about 5 minutes.

Topping

Mix all ingredients in a medium bowl and beat with hand beater.

Frost rolls when they are still a little warm as it will help.

Server warm or cold!
