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.
