Prep Time: 20 minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes

What You Need:

  •  8-inch round cake pan



  •  18 tbsp almond flour (1 cup + 2 tbsp almond flour)
  •  1/3 cup coconut flour
  •  1/4 cup erythritol
  •  3 tbsp golden flax seed meal
  •  2 tsp baking powder
  •  1 tsp xanthan gum
  •  1/2 tsp pink himalayan salt
  •  3 large eggs, room temperature
  •  3 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  •  2 tbsp butter, softened
  •  3 tsp apple cider vinegar
  •  2 tsp vanilla extract
  •  3 tbsp warm water


  •  1/4 cup butter, softened
  •  3 tbsp erythritol
  •  2 tbsp ground cinnamon
  •  10 drops liquid stevia

Cream Cheese Frosting

  •  2 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  •  2 tbsp butter, room temperature
  •  2 tbsp powdered erythritol
  •  10 drops liquid stevia
  •  1 tsp vanilla extract
  •  2 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 400°F and grease an 8-inch round cake pan with cooking spray or line with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, erythritol, flaxseed, baking powder, xanthan gum, and salt.
  • Add in the eggs, cream, melted butter, vinegar, vanilla and water into the dry ingredients and whisk well until combined using a hand mixer. Rest for 5 minutes. The dough will be very sticky.
  • While the dough rests, mix Cinnamon Filling ingredients together in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • With oiled hands, shape the dough into a ball. Place the ball between 2 large pieces of parchment paper and roll it into a rectangle to desired thinness. Spread the cinnamon filling onto the dough, leaving a 1-inch margin at the top empty.
  • Using the parchment as an aid, roll the dough (towards the empty inch) up into a tight log. Seal the edge with wet fingertips.
  • Cut the log crosswise into 9 equal pieces and transfer rolls to the prepared round cake pan.
  • Bake for 5 minutes, then reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees F and continue baking for another 15-20 minutes until golden brown. If necessary, cover loosely with foil to prevent burning.
  • Meanwhile, make the frosting by combining cream cheese, butter and erythritol in a mixing bowl. Use a hand mixer to whip until light and fluffy. Mix in vanilla and stevia; add cream 1 tablespoon at a time until a thick, spreadable icing comes together.
  • Cool rolls before spreading frosting on them. Alternatively, you can spread frosting on immediately from the oven if you like more of a glaze.
  • Best stored in an air tight container in the fridge up to 7 days or on the counter up to 2 days.
