Print Recipe

Ingredients

Dough:

  • 60 grams coconut flour about ½ cup
  • ¼ cup low carb sugar substitute
  • 2 tablespoon baking powder can be cut in half to reduce sodium but may not rise as well
  • 250 grams mozzarella cheese shredded about 2-½ cups
  • 55 grams cream cheese 2 ounces
  • 3 large eggs beaten
  • 2 tablespoons butter melted, add a bit more if needed and use unsalted to reduce sodium
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract optional

Filling:

  • ¼ cup Low Carb Brown Sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons butter softened (can be omitted but gives a better filling taste)

Icing:

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400°F and grease a 9x13-inch pan baking pan if needed.
  • Mix coconut flour, low carb sweetener, and baking powder in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Melt mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in microwave on high power for one minute. Stir. Place back in microwave on high for another minute. Stir.
  • Add in beaten eggs, butter, vanilla extract (if using), and coconut flour mixture until a dough is formed. Dough should be a bit wet and sticky. If dry, try adding in another egg or more butter.
  • Roll dough out into a rectangle about 9x12 inches.
  • In small bowl, combine the brown low carb sweetener with cinnamon. Spread butter evenly over the dough then sprinkle the cinnamon mix on top.
  • Roll dough into a log starting at one of the shorter ends. Slice into 1-inch thick rounds.
  • Rounds into prepared baking pan. Bake at 400°F for about 14-16 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow to cool slightly on a wire rack.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, cream the cream cheese and butter with an electric mixer. Beat in the powdered sweetener and vanilla extract. Add in a little low carb milk (coconut or almond) if needed to thin the icing.

Notes

For extra sweet rolls, you may want to increase the amount of sweetener. I would play around with liquid sweetener until you reach your desired taste.
If you want something gooey, add in some sugar free maple syrup or a fiber syrup to the butter layer. This will make the rolls extra gooey and increase the sweetness as well.
Nuts are a great addition. Simply add your favorite chopped nuts to the cinnamon mixture sprinkled on before you roll up the dough log. Pecans add a lovely taste!
You can store these low-carb fathead cinnamon rolls in the fridge for up to a week to indulge any time. If you’d like to store your cinnamon rolls for longer, you do have the option to freeze them. 
When I freeze my fathead dough cinnamon rolls, I bake them first, then freeze them. Once I’m ready to eat one, I place it in the oven at 350°F for about 5 minutes. They turn out just as delicious; maybe even better!
