When I decided to stick to the keto diet there were a few foods that I knew I’d miss. Cinnamon rolls were one of those foods. They are one of my favorite pastries! That’s why I worked so hard at making a keto-friendly version of them and I’m so happy to share my recipe with you too.

Low-Carb Breakfast Treat

If you make these ahead of time, you’ll have a delicious breakfast treat ready to eat first thing in the morning. Make a big batch of them, your entire family is going to want to eat them too. 

Keto Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Some keto pastries use just almond flour and coconut flour for the breading. I wanted something a little different so I made a mixture of mozzarella and cream cheese with some almond flour. You have to try it, it turns out so good!  

How To Make Sugar-Free Cinnamon Rolls

The good news about these cinnamon rolls is that you don’t have to let them rise. Since they don’t have yeast, all you have to do is make the rolls, fill them, roll them up, and bake them. 

Keto Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

There are three parts to this recipe – the rolls, the filling, and the sugar-free glaze. 

Keto Cinnamon Rolls Ingredients

Here’s what I used in each of the different sections and any substitutions you can make. 

Roll Ingredients

For the main cinnamon rolls, here are the ingredients you will need: 

    • Mozzarella cheese – Shred it so it mixes completely.
    • Cream cheese – Use full-fat, it has the best flavor and it will give you the fat you need while you are in ketosis. 
    • Almond flourUse finely-ground almond flour. Do not use almond meal. Almond meal will make your cinnamon rolls have a grainy texture that isn’t enjoyable at all.
    • Baking powder
    • Vanilla extractYou can use imitation vanilla flavor, but the real stuff has a fuller flavor. 

 

Filling Ingredients

Here’s what I used as the filling in my keto cinnamon rolls. 

Butter – Use salted butter. Don’t use margarine, it doesn’t have the same nutrients as real butter. 

Cinnamon 

Erythritol SweetenerGet the one that resembles brown sugar. It will mix with the butter and cinnamon and resemble normal cinnamon rolls more. 

Sugar-Free Icing Ingredients

Save this recipe, you can use this sugar-free icing on other treats too. 

Cream cheese

Heavy creamDon’t use half and half, you want to use heavy cream. It has a thicker body and better flavor. 

ErythritolThis is a sugar alcohol that doesn’t have any carbs. You can also use Stevia or monk fruit sweetener instead. 

How To Freeze Keto Cinnamon Rolls

One of my favorite things about this recipe is that it can be made ahead of time. You can store it in the freezer and bake it when you need it. 

Keto Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

If you want to freeze it, first bake the cinnamon rolls and then let them cool completely. Then, store them in a freezer-safe container with a lid that seals completely. 

 

When you are ready to reheat them, pull them out of the freezer and let them defrost in the refrigerator overnight. 

 

Then, just put them in the oven at 375 degrees for about 30 minutes or until they are heated through. 

Make Sugar-Free Peanut Butter Rolls 

Another fun addition to this keto cinnamon rolls recipe is peanut butter. Add a few tablespoons of sugar-free peanut butter (or sunbutter) to the filling. If you don’t want it in the filling, you can even add it to the icing.

Either way, this will give you a little more protein and a fun new twist to a family favorite!
