Keto Cinnamon Rolls 101
We personally despise any recipe that calls for yeast. It’s just something we don’t have the patience for and I believe there are others out there like me.
So we made it our goal to make these keto cinnamon rolls using the fathead dough. We had to make a few adjustments on the fathead dough for this recipe but more on that later.
What is fathead dough? This dough has become an absolute favorite of ours and within the keto community for good reason. IT IS AMAZING. We love it for pizzas especially.
How to Make the Perfect Dough for Keto Cinnamon Rolls
What you’ll need: almond flour, shredded mozzarella, cream cheese, egg, salt, vanilla extract, baking powder and baking soda.
We found we had to tweak the fathead dough ratio a bit to get these right.
Rolling out the dough: We found that chilling the dough for 15minutes will help in rolling the dough out on parchment paper. Trim as you roll and patch, then keep rolling to get your desired rectangle.
Once you get it into the desired rolled out rectangle you want to chill the dough for another 15 minutes.
Baking your cinnamon rolls: We also found that these rolls require to be tightly packed together in order to stay in form. If you do not have a small enough round pan use your muffin tin!

HOW MANY NET CARBS IN OUR FATHEAD Cinnamon Rolls?
5 Net Carbs per cinnamon roll WITH icing. We sliced our dough into 8 cinnamon rolls. If you would like to make them smaller or larger you may just be aware that it will change your carb count.
