This is by far the best batch of cinnamon rolls I’ve made. These are gone within a day in my house, it’s hard to believe they are Keto.
A lot of “ketonians” yes I made that up, use fathead dough to make pastries, cinnamon rolls etc. but I decided to use CarbQuik Low Carb Flour. The rolls were soft and doughy and this made about 15 cinnamon rolls.
For the Dough
2 1/4 cups CarbQuik Flour
1 packet active dry yeast
1/4 cup hot unsweetened almond milk
1/2 cup warm water
1 1/2 tbsp Swerve Sweetie granular
3 tbsp butter
Dash of salt
Filling – combine first 3 ingredients
1 stick of grass-fed butter
1/2 cup Swerve Sweetie granular
2 tbsp cinnamon
Optional – sugar-free blueberry fruit spread – I use Walden Foods
Swerve Sweetie confectioners
Unsweetened almond milk
1. In a small bowl, dissolve the yeast into the warm tap water (set aside and allow to sit until it thickens).
In a separate bowl combine the hot milk, sugar, butter, salt, egg and 1 cup of flour. Add the yeast mixture stir, and slowly add the remaining flour a little at a time, stirring with each addition.
2. Use a spatula and fold to form dough, knead this for 5-7 minutes. Place dough in a lightly oiled bowl, coat the dough with a little oil (do not use a lot), Cover the bowl with a towel, place in oven and allow to rise until it doubles in size (1 hour).
3. Once the dough has risen, punch down in the middle and roll out 1/2 inches in thickness (I used 2 sheets of parchment paper to roll)
4. Spread the cinnamon, butter, and sugar mixture onto the rolled out dough. I used the fruit spread around the edges of the dough and on top of the cinnamon mix. Again, this is optional.
5. I used a pizza cutter, and cut vertically. Roll each slice and cut in 1/2 with floss. (The floss makes the cut cleaner). Cover with towel for 1 hour.
6. Preheat oven 350 degrees, lightly spray glass dish with Pam. Once oven is heated bake for 25 – 30 mins.
Glaze – I didn’t measure, I tasted as I went along until I got the consistency and taste.
