I just made the best Keto Cinnamon Rolls Recipe that fits my Low Carb lifestyle and is made with Cream Cheese Frosting! I am in heaven!
Day by day I am realizing that there are many ways to incorporate treats into my Ketogenic diet way of life. I’ve been “eating keto” since January! I feel less bloated, lost weight and feel amazing! I don’t see me changing this way, ever!
Kicking the sugar habit was horrible for me. I am so happy to be able to make rare treats such as these Keto Cinnamon Rolls when I want something different.
Oh! Wanna know the best part? You don’t have to use yeast or wait for the cinnamon rolls to rise! You can whip up this dough in under 10 minutes! And don’t be put off by these low carb ingredients either. You cannot tell that they are made with cheese when you bit into the finished dessert. Seriously. They are delicious!
I get asked all the time, what can I have for dessert and this is the recipe I tell people about most often. The second question I get asked is… what snacks do you have? I think my most favorite snack is a piece of salami rolled up with a layer of cream cheese and a pickle served in the center but another snack I make often are these Low Carb Cheese Crackers! People are amazed at how many food options you have while sticking to Keto!
Keto Cinnamon Rolls Recipe Ingredients List
- 2 cups Mozzarella Cheese
- 3/4 cup Almond Flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 3 tablespoons cream cheese
- 1 tablespoon Stevia or Swerve
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 egg
- 1/8 stick butter (melted)
- Sprinkle of Stevia or Swerve (for the inside of the dough)
Keto Cinnamon Rolls Cream Cheese Frosting Ingredients
- 2 tablespoons heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons cream cheese
- 1 tablespoon powdered swerve
- Optional: you can add a 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla to add more flavor. I love vanilla!
Keto Cinnamon Rolls Recipe Instructions
Combine the Mozzarella Cheese and Cream Cheese in a microwave-safe bowl and cook it on high for about 1 minute. (you can melt these ingredients over the stove top on low if you prefer)
After the cheese has melted, add one egg, Almond Flour, and Baking Powder. Save the cinnamon and stevia to sprinkle on the dough after you roll it out.
Carefully stir the ingredients until all is well combined and smooth. This will cool down the dough a bit too.
The dough will be extremely sticky at this point. Next, dump the dough onto a sheet of parchment paper and begin to knead the dough until all the ingredients are fully mixed in. The dough will be really sticky until you knead it together. You can sprinkle a little bit of almond or coconut flour on the dough to roll it out and prevent sticking too.
Use a rolling pin to smooth out the dough into a large rectangle shape. I roll this dough out in between two sheets of parchment paper or a silicone mat with a piece of parchment paper on top of it.
Melt the 1/8 stick of butter and spread it sparingly over the rolled out dough.
Sprinkle cinnamon and Stevia sweetener onto the dough.
Roll up the dough as seen in the photos.
Use a piece of string to cut the dough into 15 different cinnamon rolls.
Place a piece of parchment paper in the bottom of your pan to line it before baking.
Place the rolls in a baking pan.
Set the over to 350 degrees and bake them for about 20 minutes or until golden brown. NOTE: You may have to cook them longer if you cut the rolls thicker. Cook them until they are golden brown and done in the middle.
While the cinnamon rolls are baking in the oven, you can begin to mix up the frosting.
Combine the heavy cream, cream cheese, and powdered sweetener into a bowl and mix it with a mixer on high speed until the ingredients is nice and smooth.
Allow the cinnamon rolls to cool for about 5 or 10 minutes before applying the cream cheese frosting.
Optional: Feel free to add a few crushed Pecans to the top of your delicious Keto Cinnamon Rolls! YUMMY!
