Easy Keto Cinnamon Rolls

As the holidays approach, I find myself thinking of sweet treats to greet the cold mornings. The other day, my girlfriend and I were dreaming of fluffy cinnamon rolls to go with our morning coffee.

The next day, I woke with the idea to modify the cloud bread recipe to work for cinnamon rolls. I knew it wouldn't be complete without an indulgent cream cheese frosting to go on top. You'll find both recipes below.

These cinnamon rolls are easier and faster to make than traditional cinnamon rolls. We don't have to wait for dough to rise... roll it out...make a huge mess of flour and sugar... and then clean all that up while the rolls rise again. I sure didn't miss that process!

These whip up (literally) in a matter of 5 minutes. (Hence the "easy keto cinnamon roll" label i gave these) Baking should not have to be complicated 🙂 The whole process of making them takes as much or less time than baking them! Plus these contain no added sugar, no artificial sweeteners and are absolutely incredible to eat!

One of my secret ingredients is Bocha Sweet. It's a newer sugar alternative on the market made from a japanese pumpkin. It really tastes like sugar. I can't wait to try it in sugar cookies. For now, I'm in love with it for frostings and all things really!

Ingredients

Cream Cheese Frosting

Instructions

  • First, preheat your oven to 300 degrees and line a few baking sheets with parchment paper. This recipe makes 8 cinnamon rolls. You can easily double the recipe for a bigger batch.
  • Separate your eggs, being very careful not to let any yolk into your egg white mixture.
  • In a medium size bowl with a wide bottom, add the egg whites and 1/4 tsp cream of tarter and whip until egg whites form stiff peaks. Set aside.
  • In a separate bowl, combine egg yolks, cream cheese, cinnamon, vanilla, acacia powder, salt and bocha sweet. Blend this mixture until thoroughly combined and no lumps remain. (Note: Make sure that your cream cheese is at room temperature so it blends well)
  • Gently fold the egg yolk & cream cheese mixture into the egg whites. Be careful not to over-mix.
  • Ladle portions onto your parchment covered baking sheet.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until browned and cooked through. Cool before frosting.

For the Cream Cheese Frosting

  • Combine all ingredients in your mixer bowl and whip until light and fluffy.

Tips & Tricks for Easy Keto Cinnamon Rolls


There's a few very important things to note the first time you make these easy low carb cinnamon rolls.

Cream Cheese

Soften your cream cheese to the point where you can easily stir it. If your cream cheese is not softened adequately, you will have to work hard to incorporate it into the egg white mixture which will flatten your whipped egg whites and your results won't be quite the same as mine.

The Eggs

When you separate your egg yolks from your egg whites, be very careful not to get any yolk into the egg white mixture.

What happens if you get some yolk in the egg white mixture? Your egg whites won't whip up well.

This happens to me from time to time, and I end up making someone some scrambled eggs and starting over. To prevent this, you can crack one egg at a time. This way, if the third egg is a mess you don't have to start completely over. You just have to sacrifice one egg!

The Cream of Tartar

The cream of tartar is important because it helps the egg whites whip up, provides them some structure and helps prevent them from falling flat. Don't skip this ingredient!


Substitutions For Easy Keto Cinnamon Rolls


Substituting Natural Sweeteners

These rolls work fine with any of my recommended natural sweetners. See my full breakdown and recommendations in the Sugar Substitute Guide found here.

Substituting the Acacia Fiber

I highly recommend you get some acacia fiber stocked in your pantry for Keto Baking. However, in a pinch you can use ground psyllium husks. You'll end up with a slightly wheaty flavor using the psyllium husks.

You can also experiment with omitting it all together. You may need to cut the rolls with a fork and not be able to pick them up. The extra fiber provides some structure.
