There is just something about a gooey cinnamon roll that makes any evening special. Add a glass of hot cocoa made with a keto-friendly sweetener and you have a great treat for a holiday — or just a cozy night in. Treats like cinnamon rolls are usually associated with cheat days, but these sugar-free cinnamon rolls are ketosis-friendly.
Making these keto cinnamon rolls follows a similar process as making regular cinnamon rolls, though with the gluten-free flour there is no need to chill the dough before baking. Many low carb cinnamon roll recipes use almond flour or even crushed macadamia nuts in the dough, but we find coconut flour creates the best consistency and gentle sweetness. You can substitute your favorite low carb flour of choice in the dough, but be aware that not all substitute flours are equally keto-friendly. The dough should be a touch sweet, but don’t overdo it on the Stevia (or erythritol sweetener, if you’re substituting) as most of the sweetness will come from the icing.
These keto cinnamon rolls are sugar-free, low-carb, gluten-free, and absolutely delicious. They make a great breakfast piece or warm after-dinner dessert. And with a total time of 35 minutes, the wholesome keto rolls leave you free to enjoy your morning or night — without interrupting your clean eating.

  1. Sally says:

    It states that you’re supposed to spread half of filling on the dough, then roll up. What do you do with the other half of the filling?

    1. Hi, Sally! The recipe has been updated to spread the entire filling onto the dough. Our apologies!

  2. Julia says:

    What do I do with the other half of the cinnamon mixture? Recipe says to only spread half onto the dough and never says what to do with the other half.

    1. Hi, Julie! The recipe has been updated to spread the entire filling onto the dough. Our apologies!

  3. Penny Swearingin says:

    I made these and put them in my fitness pal it comes out 23 grams of carbs

    1. GB Hernandez says:

      Hey Penny,

      All macro calculators give different macros especially if you are choosing different brands than the ones we used.

  4. Erin says:

    Your nutrition information doesn’t say how much fat is in them!?!

    1. GB Hernandez says:

      Hi Erin,

      Thank you for bringing that to our attention, we just added the missing information

  5. You can substitute swerve for the 1/2 c stevia in the dough. I love Stevia but my husband does not..he take a little but not that much…and if so how much swerve would I use…we have not had any kind of pastries in ages..these look yummy

  6. Teresa says:

    I assume that any leftovers need to be refrigerated, since it contains cheese, correct?

    1. Hi Teresa! Yes, leftovers should be refrigerated, but this may make this a little hard so make sure to microwave for 10-30 seconds before eating.
