Ingredients

For the Dough

  • 2 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
  • 2 oz. softened cream cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 1/2 cup granular erythritol
  • 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs

For the Filling

  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/4 cup keto brown sugar substitute such as Sukrin Gold
  • 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup fresh cranberries

For the Icing

  • 1 1/2 cups confectioner erythritol
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon orange zest
  • 2 tablespoons almond milk

Instructions

For the Dough

  • Heat your oven to 350°F and line an 8 x 11-inch baking dish with parchment paper.
  • In a medium microwave-safe bowl, microwave the mozzarella and cream cheese for one minute, remove and stir, then microwave for another 45 seconds or until the cheeses are completely melted.
  • In a large bowl fitted for a stand mixer, combine the almond flour, granular erythritol, coconut flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, and salt.
  • Next, add in the apple cider vinegar, vanilla, eggs, and melted cheese. Place the hook attachment onto the stand mixer and mix the ingredients together for at least 5 minutes or until completely combined, scraping the sides of the bowl as you go until a dough forms.
  • Create a large bottom layer of plastic wrap by connecting several sheets together until it is at least 24-inches long x 20-inches wide.
  • Place the dough in the center of the plastic wrap.
  • Make the top layer of plastic wrap in the same way and size (24 x 20 inches) and place on top of the dough.
  • Roll out the dough between the two layers of plastic wrap until it is a 20 x 16 inch oval. Stretch out the plastic wrap if needed so that it doesn't get caught under the dough.
  • Remove the top layer of the plastic wrap and move onto the filling.

For the Filling

  • In a medium bowl, mix together the butter, brown sugar substitute, and ground cinnamon.
  • Spread out the cinnamon mixture evenly onto the top of the dough.
  • Sprinkle the fresh cranberries evenly over top.
  • Using the bottom layer of plastic wrap, roll the dough up lengthwise, starting at the long side of the dough oval.
  • Cut the dough into 10 cinnamon rolls. The dough will be sticky so use a string if you have it.
  • Place the cinnamon rolls in the lined baking dish and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the tops and sides of the rolls turn golden brown.

For the Icing

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together all the ingredients. Feel free to add a little more milk until you have reached your desired consistency.
  • Allow your cinnamon rolls to cool before topping them with the icing.
  • Use a spoon or spatula to spread the icing over cinnamon buns.
