KETO BLUEBERRY CINNAMON ROLLS

GUYS. 

These Keto Blueberry Cinnamon Rolls were so good. 

I wish I had gotten a better picture of how gooey and delicious the insides of these were but they were devoured way too fast.

My dad actually asked me “is this keto?” because he thought they were too good to be!

The best part about this recipe is that it really isn’t that hard to make compared to standard cinnamon rolls where you’d have to let the dough proof and rise. None of that here! 

These also manage to be the perfect amount of calories for a small treat that won’t put you over your daily limit. 

Seriously I don’t think I can find a negative to this recipe other than..you may want to double it because these are going to be GONE.

Tips For Making Keto Blueberry Cinnamon Rolls

  • These take ~30min in my oven but mine tends to bake on the slower side so just make sure to check them at 25min to see how they are doing.
  • This recipe makes 9 mini rolls which I think make a perfect after-dinner treat but feel free to make 5 larger rolls for a filling breakfast replacement! (Just be sure to make more of a square shape when rolling out the dough for thicker rolls).
  • If you don’t have xanthan gum it’s TOTALLY okay, you can still make these! I just add it because I feel it improves the texture of the dough just slightly.

Tools I used To Make Keto Blueberry Cinnamon Rolls

  • Low Carb Substitution Guide – This is totally optional but if you like my recipes, I now have a $5 guide available with all of the substitutions I use to create every recipe on my site. You can use this to convert old traditional recipes and create new keto recipes! You can purchase it here and/or read more if you are interested. 🙂 I appreciate your support so much guys!
  • Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend. This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year!

Ingredients In Keto Blueberry Cinnamon Rolls

  • Powdered Monkfruit Erythritol Sweetener  –   I use the SoNourished brand for both granular and powdered sweetener and love it! The powdered is the best option for no-bake goods and desserts where you want a very smooth final product. But it bakes well in any recipe. **UPDATE** lately I’ve switched over to THIS brand of powdered sweetener because of trouble ordering the first one so you can order whichever is easier for you!
  • Xanthan gum a great way to improve elasticity in gluten-free baked goods. It’s used alongside vital wheat gluten to provide the best possible “crust-like” texture. If you do not have this ingredient you can still go ahead with this recipe but I’d recommend it if you can get your hands on it.
  • Almond Flour– I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.
  • Mozzarella – Seems odd but it works just as it does in fat head dough to give an elastic traditional gluten-like texture to the dough. It also tastes delicious fried!

Keto Blueberry Cinnamon Rolls

Serves: 9 snack size rolls or 5 regular rolls

Ingredients:

Dough

Filling

Cream Cheese Glaze

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350*F.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together your almond flour, sweetener, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt. Set aside.
  3. In another microwavable bowl, melt your mozzarella in 30s increments until you can easily stir it (it took about 1 min for me in total). melted mozzarella
  4. Add your already whisked egg and your dry ingredients to the melted mozzarella and stir very well until a dough starts to form. At first the mozzarella may not completely stick to the other ingredients. This is okay, just begin to knead the dough like you would bread dough until the mozzarella is incorporated. melted mozzarella and eggfat head dough
  5. If the mozzarella still doesn’t want to blend into the other ingredients after a minute or two of kneading, place everything back in the microwave for 10-15s and then knead the dough again. Repeat this as needed until all ingredients are incorporated well and you can form a nice clean ball. 
  6. Roll out your ball of dough between two sheets of greased parchment paper about 1/8th of an inch thick. (Thin but still thick enough so it won’t fall apart easily)
  7. Form it into a rough rectangle and if you’d like you can cut off the edges to make your rolls look neater. keto cinnamon roll dough

  8. Next, mix your blueberries in a small bowl with the rest of the filling ingredients, then pour the coated blueberries over your dough, spread the blueberries out somewhat evenly over the dough, it doesn’t have to be perfect. keto blueberry dessert
  9. Roll up the dough from the longest side to the other long side (length to length) until you have a long tube shape. Be careful to enclose the blueberries in the dough without smushing them. Then press the edge of the dough gently into the rest of the roll to seal it shut. keto cinnamon rolls recipe
  10. Also pinch the ends of the tube shut to prevent any blueberry leakage while slicing. Now you can slice the tube into pieces with a sharp knife. (I cut 9 pieces for mine).keto blueberry rolls recipe
