These Keto Cinnamon Rolls are a true game changer for me. I love a nice warm cinnamon roll with my morning coffee, there is just something about the bitterness of black coffee paired with the sweetness of this cream cheese glazed confection that is absolutely perfect.

This recipe uses the base recipe for our Keto Dinner Rolls, with a few modifications to make the shift from savory to sweet. I started testing this recipe last fall, and through multiple unsuccessful attempts, it is finally ready for me to share with you guys.

Allowing the dough to chill adequately is really the key. If the dough hasn’t had enough time in the refrigerator to cool off, it is admittedly a pain to work with, but if you’ve got the patience for the dough to firm up in the fridge the end result is totally worth it! The chilling time is mainly to help the dough be able to cut into clean rolls instead of smashing together from the pressure of a knife.

Cinnamon is one of those spices that is often overlooked as a spice that contains numerous health benefits (Turmeric gets all the glory), but Ancient Egyptians actually considered cinnamon more precious than gold.

Cinnamon has a ton of antioxidants but in order to receive the full spectrum of the anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, and anti-clotting benefits, you’ll need to check the label to be sure you are using ceylon cinnamon instead of the more common cassia (fake) cinnamon.

Keto Cinnamon Rolls

These Keto Cinnamon Rolls are easy, made in a cast iron skillet, and based off of fat head dough. Everyone will love these fluffy rolls with a sweet cream cheese icing.

prep time: 13 hourcook time: 30 minstotal time: 13 hours and 30 mins

ingredients:

Dough:
Filling:
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup brown Swerve
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
Icing:
  • 1/4 cup full-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup powdered Swerve
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract 

instructions

  1. In a small pot over low heat melt the cream cheese and mozzarella together. It should resemble a thick gooey paste. You can also use the microwave.
  2. Add the melted cheeses to a large bowl along with the baking powder, almond flour, and eggs. Mix until smooth and chill in the refrigerator for one hour.
  3. Place a large sheet of parchment paper down and sprinkle with a bit of almond flour. Place the dough on the parchment and cover with another piece of parchment. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough into a large 1/4" thick rectangle. Remove the top piece of parchment.
  4. Brush the melted butter over the dough, sprinkle with the brown Swerve and the cinnamon.
  5. Using the bottom piece of parchment as your guide roll the dough into a log starting from the longest side. Twist the ends of the parchment so that the dough is wrapped tightly and carefully transfer to the refrigerator to chill overnight.
  6. Preheat the oven to 400° F and grease a 10.5" cast iron skillet. 
  7. Unwrap the dough and using a sharp knife carefully cut into 12 rolls. Arrange the rolls in the skillet and transfer to the oven for 25-30 minutes or until the tops are golden. Let cool completely before icing. 
  8. To make the icing simply beat together all of the ingredients until smooth. Drizzle over the tops of the cooled rolls before serving.
