Keto-Friendly Fathead Cinnamon Rolls: Fresh out of the Oven

These little cinnamon rolls go great with a cup of coffee in the morning. Looking at them, you think you’re going to need a dozen just to fill you up, but these are surprisingly filling! The trick is that I used Fathead dough as a base and it works wonders.   It’s filling, and you would never guess these sweet treats had mozzarella in them!  The magic of a fathead dough.

If you liked these you’re going to LOVE my keto friendly Ricotta French Toast & Chocolate Chip Keto/Paleo Blondie, you can thank me later!

 

Ingredients:

Roll:

  • 6 oz Mozzarella Cheese
  • 3 oz Almond flour
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 3 Tbsp Erythritol
  • 1 Tbsp Cinnamon
    • I revised this based on feedback below
  • 3 Tbsp melted butter or Ghee

Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 2 oz Cream cheese
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp Erythritol

Preheat oven to 400 F

In a microwave safe bowl add mozzarella, almond flour, and baking powder and toss to combine.

Next, add cream cheese and microwave for 60 seconds, take out and mix, microwave for another 30 seconds, and then mix again. Then, add egg and mix until dough forms. Take the dough and place in between 2 sheets of parchment paper, and roll out to 1/4 inch thickness.

 

Spread melted butter over the dough, then evenly sprinkle cinnamon and erythritol.

Roll into jellyroll shape, making sure to keep it as tight as possible, then slice off half in rounds, and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a sil pat and place about 1 inch apart.

Bake at 400F until rolls are puffed and brown 10-15 mins, however, keep an eye on them as they can burn quickly.

While rolls are baking mix frosting ingredients together.

  • 1/4 cup was way too much cinnamon. Next time I’m only using like 1/2 tbsp for the recipe. It was honestly unpleasant and ruined the rolls.

    • Sorry to hear that. Are you sure you rolled them out thin enough? I have served this to many and had zero complaints about the cinnamon. Also, in traditional cinnamon rolls you use a generous portion of cinnamon so I’m genuinely not sure why it ruined it for you…

  • I agree with Daniel, the cinnamon was a bit much. I really like how the dough came out, even though I spread mine a bit too thin. I would make this again, but I’ll have to tone back the cinnamon a little.

  • I just made these and really enjoyed them.
    Next time I will try just softening the butter and mixing the cinnamon & erythritol into it and spreading over the dough as I found the melted butter oozed out and made a little wave which swept the cinnamon off the end of the dough as I rolled.
    I definitely prefer the type of sweetness of the erythritol to Stevia.

  • I had these and loved the full amount of cinnamon, but I’m a cinnamon lover! Every recipe is always according to your personal.taste 😉 Could you make these adding sugar free chocolate chips to the dough or filling?

  • You saved me some trouble! Experimenting with fathead dough to make cinnamon rolls has been on my to-do list for a while!
