Our keto cinnamon rolls are fluffy and delicious. They’re the perfect addition to your morning cup of coffee. There’s no wrong way to eat them, and they’re sure to please everyone as they’re sugar-free, gluten-free, keto-friendly, and grain-free. Prepare these keto cinnamon rolls in three rounds: the buns, the filling, and the decadent vanilla frosting.

Yield: 12 rolls


Keto Cinnamon Roll Recipe Dough Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 3/4 cup extra fine almond flour
  • 2 tablespoons cream cheese
  • 1 large room-temperature egg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Keto Cinnamon Roll Recipe Filling Ingredients

Keto Cinnamon Roll Recipe Frosting Ingredients

Instructions: You will want to prepare the dough first, then the filling, then the frosting while the cinnamon rolls bake.

To Make the Dough

Preheat oven to 360°F. Set aside a non-stick cookie sheet or a round 9-inch non-stick baking pan.

  1. Melt mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in a small pot over low heat. The cheese should be just melted. Do not bring the mixture to a boil.
  2. Remove pot from the stove and stir in room-temperature egg.
  3. Add almond flour and baking powder, stir to combine.
  4. Roll the mixture into a large ball of dough (you can flour or oil your hands first to avoid sticking).
  5. Divide the dough into six equal balls.
  6. On a lightly floured surface, pinch dough down and roll into 15-inch rectangles
  7. Flatten each roll, making each roll as thin as possible.
  8. Set aside.

To Make the Filling

After you set the strips of dough aside, make the filling. Make sure the dough is not in a warm area or it may tear when you work with it next. Now, prepare the filling.

  1. Boil water for the filling.
  2. Stir in cinnamon and Pyure Organic All-Purpose Stevia Blend.
  3. Wait to cool just slightly, then pour evenly over the strips of dough.

To Assemble the Buns

After you pour the cinnamon filling over the buns, it’s time to assemble them before you put them in the oven.

  1. Roll each cinnamon-covered strip into a bun.
  2. Cut each bun in half sideways.
  3. Place each of the 12 buns onto your cookie sheet or into your round pan.
  4. Bake for 20 minutes.

To Prepare the Frosting

Prepare the frosting while the buns are baking so you can coat them as soon as they are ready.

  1. Mix cream cheese with Greek yogurt and Pyure Organic Liquid Stevia Sweetener with Vanilla Flavor. Set aside.
  2. Remove buns from the oven, and while still warm, pour the frosting over them

Keto Cream Cheese Pancakes

Adapted from Healthy Recipes, these pancakes feel indulgent without all the artificial sugar. Top with your favorite fruit or sugar-free maple syrup alternative.



  1. Microwave the cream cheese for 10-20 seconds to soften it. Make sure it doesn’t turn into liquid. 
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs well with a hand whisk.
  3. Add the cream cheese, vanilla, and stevia. Whisk until well incorporated and smooth. This will require some time and patience!
  4. Heat half the butter in two mini nonstick skillets (or use an egg frying pan) over medium heat. Add ¼ of the batter to each skillet. Cook until golden brown and set on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Flip and cook 1 more minute. Transfer to a plate and loosely cover with foil.
  5. Repeat with the remaining batter, adding more butter to the pans.

Almond Flour Banana Muffins

Tender, moist and sweet – enjoy these muffins as an afternoon snack or as a wholesome grab-and-go breakfast.


  • 4 ripe bananas, mashed
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 cup Pyure Organic All-Purpose Stevia Blend
  • 1/3 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup ground flax seeds
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup large flake oats
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup mini dark chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts


  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Grease 12-cup muffin tin; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, mix together bananas, eggs, sweetener, milk, oil, ground flax seeds and vanilla. In separate bowl, combine oats, almond flour, baking powder and salt; stir into banana mixture just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips.
  • Spoon batter into prepared muffin tin; sprinkle with walnuts. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted into center of a muffin. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes. Transfer to rack; let cool completely.
  • TIP: Muffins can be wrapped individually and frozen for up to 1 month.

Fluffy Keto Waffles

Another recipe adapted from Healthy Recipes, these waffles are fluffy on the inside, crunchy on the outside, and better for you than freezer waffles. With stevia and almond flour, these waffles are kid and adult approved! 


  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract (yes, a full tablespoon, not a typo!)
  • ½ teaspoon Pyure Organic Liquid Stevia Extract Sweetener
  • ½ cup whole milk
  • 2 cups blanched finely ground almond flour (8 oz)
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter for the waffle maker


  1. Plug your waffle maker in. Set your oven to warm (150°F) and fit a baking sheet with a wire rack. Place the baking sheet in the oven.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs, vanilla, stevia, and milk.
  3. Gradually add the almond flour, whisking it in until the mixture is smooth.
  4. If the batter seems very thick, add a little water. I often add 2 tablespoons.
  5. Mix in the kosher salt and the baking soda.
  6. Brush the waffle maker with melted butter. Pour the batter into the waffle maker, using a scant ½ measuring cup per waffle and spreading the batter to the corners before closing the lid.
  7. Cook until puffy and set, about 5 minutes. When the first batch of waffles is ready, place the cooked waffles on the wire rack in the warm oven to keep them warm.
  8. Brush the waffle maker with more melted butter and repeat steps 5 and 6 until all the batter is gone. Serve the waffles immediately.

Overnight Oats

Looking for a great breakfast on-the-go? This is an easy, delicious, low-calorie breakfast to make ahead of time. It’s great for those early mornings before school or work when you need a nutritious way to fuel up. 



  1. In a pint mason jar (16 oz), combine gluten-free rolled oats, almond milk, vanilla extract (or another extract of your choice), Pyure All-Purpose Stevia, and a dash of salt.
  2. Shake contents and place in the fridge overnight to wake up to a lovely breakfast, ready to go!
  3. Garnish with fruits, nuts, spices, and seeds for flavor.
