Keto Cinnamon Rolls

Keto Cinnamon Rolls are a sweet cheesy dessert which are made from the pizza dough, mixed with stevia to give it a slight sweetness alongside the cinnamon.

Keto Cinnamon Rolls

As a food blogger with a full time job, my only time to make recipes is on the weekend. Much to Adele’s disgust (my Girlfriend), it’s the only time to get the best natural light for the photographs! She would much rather be outside – once I earn some money from this blog, she’ll be the first person I spend it on!

As I was busy preparing my recipes, I had one of my hair-brained ideas… What If I created a sweet dessert with the famous fathead pizza base?

MY OTHER RECIPES


The first few batches I tried turned too sloppy. This was because I either had cooked the recipe for too long, or at a higher temperature than necessary. After ironing out the kinks during my “on-the-fly” recipe development, I thought it would be a shame to not put this on the website! – Sure enough, it worked!

Deliciously Keto Recipe Friendly

Keto Cinnamon Rolls

As a creator of keto recipes online, you never know if anyone will actually try the recipe. I come up with all these recipes and let them go free into the webosphere, but the popularity of this recipe truly came to my surprise.

My New Recipe Book

The icing is a mixture of cream cheese, cream and stevia. These are really delicious, so don’t be alarmed by the fact that there is cheese and sweet together. Delicious Keto Cinnamon Rolls!

Cheese and sweet go together very well, which is why many restaurants have cheese on the dessert menu. Not only does cheese and sweet go together, but cinnamon sweetens anything. If you’re someone who enjoys stevia in their coffee, you should try adding some cinnamon to replace the sweetness. Thank me later!recipe book

 

This recipe has had an enormous response. Everyone loved it! I will be looking at creating a video for this in the next month.

Keto Cinnamon Rolls are a simple keto recipe. Sometimes it’s nice to prepare a celebratory meal that is great to show off to your friends!

Micro nutrients In This Recipe:

Calcium

Much like milk, Cheese contains plenty of calcium. 100g of cheese contains 100% of your daily calcium needs. Calcium is actually not a micro nutrient that you need to worry about, because so many people already have too much calcium in their body. Little known fact, excess calcium can actually cause you to lose magnesium, so go easy on your daily cheese intake!

Magnesium

Cheese contains some magnesium, but it’s not enough to just rely on without either supplementing or eating plenty of dark leafy green vegetables. Magnesium is definitely a micronutrient to make sure you are getting adequate doses of each day, as it is used in so many different chemical reactions throughout your body.

Zinc

Cheese contains some zinc. Zinc is an important nutrient to create testosterone for males, healthy hair and nails, whilst keeping your metabolism in check with your natural hunger. If you find you become unable to eat, or appetite is very low, it’s usually a zinc deficiency.

Instructions
  1. Mix the cheese together into a microwave safe bowl, and heat on high in 30 second increments until the mixture is melted just enough to be able to bind completely. (this should be about 1.5 mins)
  2. Mix in the stevia, egg, almond flour. Put in between two sheets of parchment paper and roll out into a rectangle.
  3. Mix the stevia, cinnamon and water in a small cup and spread over the rolled out cheese mixture.
  4. Begin from one side, and roll the scrolls into one long roll. Cut into 2 finger lengths and place onto a baking tray. Put in the oven at 180 degrees celcius for 10 mins.
  5. Mix the cream cheese, cream and stevia together and but it into a plastic bag. Cut the corner off and pipe over the cinnamon scrolls. Enjoy!

    Hi Aaron
    I have just completed my first week and have lost 1.5 kg. You have really helped me understand my Keto diet better. Thank you so much.
    PS. My goal is to lose 8kg ( and keep it off)) by July 2018, My daughter is getting married. My challeng is that I am very hormonal as I am starting menopause. I am 51 years old and in the last two years have gained these 8 kgs and have tried all sorts of diets, I just can’t shift the weight. I have been really miserable because.of this. I was a smoker (not heavy) for many years, I gave up in June 2016 , I think that may have also contributed to me gaining weight.
    Anyway, I just thought I would say hello and will Keto on!!!!

      Hi Maria,

      That’s a great first week! Just remember, you did all the hard work!

      Congratulations to your daughter. I’m sure you are a very happy mother. Losing 8kgs by that time is a very achievable goal, and i’m sure will make your daughter very proud! Intermittent fasting is your friend!

      You need something to fill that cigarette void, and don’t let it be food. Aside from all the health risks, often times smoking gives you something to do instead of eating. I would sub with exercise and coffee any day!

      Maybe also check out http://www.mindhealthmatters.com.au as she is also going through the exact same situation and has plenty of information regarding menopause.

      Best of luck 🙂

    Really interesting recipes 🙂 very useful ideas for making sweet treats for my brother who is a type 1 diabetic, and gluten intolerant. Thanks!

      Thanks Liz 🙂

      Hopefully this helps with your brothers intolerances 🙂

    Hello,

    Is Nutvia sweetener similar to Erythritol?
    Thank you so much and thank you for the exceptional recipes!!

    • Aaron Day April 18, 2017 at 11:37 am - Reply

      Natvia is Stevia mixed with sugar alcohols. Its the best one I’ve used. However you can still use Erythritol, but that is just a plain sugar alcohol. 🙂 Hope that helps.

    Just want to clarify that cream in your recipe is referring to whipping cream? Looking forward to trying this recipe! Thank you!

    • Aaron Day April 24, 2017 at 8:27 am - Reply

      Hi Leah. I’m actually referring to heavy cream. Whipping cream is slightly lighter. 🙂 Enjoy!

    Could you sub the moz with any other cheese

    • Aaron Day May 5, 2017 at 6:25 pm - Reply

      Hi Dellwynne, Mozzarella is best, but save the planet, use what you have!

  6. LISA May 5, 2017 at 10:31 am - Reply

    I don’t see the information on this recipe about carbs, day, fiber and such. Am I missing it? This looks amazing, but I need to figure if it fits into my daily programme. Thanks!

    The ingredients say natvia but the instructions say stevia. Is there a difference?

    • Aaron Day May 7, 2017 at 8:38 am - Reply

      Hi Debbie, Sorry! there isn’t usually any difference. I use natvia because its a mix of stevia and erythritol which tastes really good!

    What do you do with the water from the melted mozerella? Also, tripple the recipe if you plan on sharing with anyone.

    • Aaron Day May 8, 2017 at 9:15 am - Reply

      I didn’t get any water from the melted mozzarella.. I would discard it. 🙂

  9. Zee May 17, 2017 at 11:36 am - Reply

    Hi Aaron,

    This looks really good, but I’ve spent very little time cooking or baking
    Could you please clarify what you mean by “2 finger lengths”, as I don’t think you mean cutting it into segments as long as 2 fingers, do you? Also, when rolling out the rectangle, I’m unclear how thinly it should be rolled out, or alternately about what size rectangle I should end up with, or does none of that matter? Thanks.

    • FatForWeightLoss May 17, 2017 at 12:04 pm - Reply

      Hi Zee,

      Maybe It would be explained better if I said “the width of 2 fingers side by side”..?
      It should be as thin as a thin and crispy pizza base. 🙂

  10. Erica May 30, 2017 at 10:04 am - Reply

    I’m assuming I shred the mozzarella?

  11. Karen June 1, 2017 at 10:44 pm - Reply

    Hi Aaron, I just am baking these. My dough was very moist, when I cut and tried to move them they were coming apart. Also is that 180 degrees a typo? I’m in US I baked them at 325 f. Thanks for input, Karen

    • Kelly June 16, 2017 at 12:12 pm - Reply

      180c is equivalent to 355f

  12. Kristina June 2, 2017 at 10:57 am - Reply

    Could you use mozzarella pearls? Would they melt the same?

  13. Anne July 5, 2017 at 11:39 pm - Reply

    When say cals content is that per roll or the whole recipe.

  14. Deborah July 6, 2017 at 5:42 am - Reply

    These look delicious! We have NO microwave. Suggestions?

    • Lori July 17, 2017 at 10:54 am - Reply

      try melting it in a double boiler, if you don’t have one use a metal bowl placed over a pot of hot but not boiling water. I would do this slowly & stir constantly

    • Robyn August 27, 2017 at 6:52 am - Reply

      I don’t have a microwave either. I just use a nonstick saucepan over med-low heat. Works fine.

  15. Kristen G July 12, 2017 at 8:05 am - Reply

    What are the nutrition facts for this? Looks amazing! Just want to make sure I can have it!

  16. Meek July 22, 2017 at 2:06 am - Reply

    How many rolls should you get out of a recipe? How many are there in a serving?

  17. Joel July 24, 2017 at 2:54 am - Reply

    Hi,

    Thanks for sharing this recipe! I had two issues baking it: 1. The mixture really stuck to the parchment paper when I rolled it. Do I need to grease the paper? 2. It didn’t rise in the oven. Could we add 1 tsp of baking powder?

  18. Farrah August 17, 2017 at 2:57 am - Reply

    These are delicious but I am having a hard time with the way they look. They always look smushed so I tried them in a cupcake pan but I am still not getting that nice cinnamon roll look…any advice/suggestions?

    Hi made these today yum. Can you freeze them?

  20. Elizabeth L August 18, 2017 at 4:36 pm - Reply

    Hi Aaron, I note you are from my town, Brisbane. I have a general question for you. When making your recipes do you use Australian or US Tablespoons? American T’spoons hold a little over 17mls while our are 20 mls. Our cups are also larger than US. I had a recipe recently that used 8 Tablespoons and that sure makes huge difference as to which Tablespoons are used.

    Please tell your girlfriend we appreciate her patience and thoroughly enjoy the recipes you post. All the best to you both.

    I think a video would be very useful on this recipe …. lots of questions answered when see how you made them yourself 👍🏼

    Made these today and they came out great. They are also kid approved! Quick question, could I make the log up and freeze it for later use or made bake and freeze?
