How to make keto cinnamon bread?
This keto cinnamon bread recipe is the easiest keto breakfast bread recipe ever to pair with your bulletproof coffee in the morning! All you need to make this quick cinnamon bread are 10 simple, wholesome ingredients.
I recommend you measure all your ingredients in small bowls before starting to make sure you don’t miss any ingredients and for precision.
- Eggs – at room temperature
- Erythritol or any keto-friendly crystal sweetener you love like xylitol.
- Coconut oil – you can also use melted butter, but the bread will be denser.
- Unsweetened almond milk
- Vanilla extract
- Ground cinnamon
- Almond flour – no almond meal. You must use ultra-fine almond flour to achieve the same fluffy and moist bread crumb.
- Coconut flour – you must use a combination of both keto gluten-free flours. Coconut flour adds a real bread texture and almond flour adds moisture. Also, make sure you measure these ingredients precisely. Coconut flour contains a lot of fiber, and if you add slightly too much in a keto recipe, it dries out the bread quickly.
- Baking powder
First, measure the dry ingredients precisely. If you are using a measuring cup, fill-pack the flour and level it. Whisk all your dry ingredients together to evenly combine them.
In another bowl, beat the liquid ingredients all together, making sure they are all at room temperature. In fact, if you are using cold almond milk straight out of the fridge, it will solidify the coconut oil, creating oil lumps.
Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and combine until it forms a thick, but not dry, batter. The batter will be thicker than a wheat-based bread batter but not thick as cookie batter.

It should be wet, as seen in the picture below. If your batter is extremely dry, it’s because you added too much coconut flour or you used coarse almond flour.
To fix your batter, add a splash more almond milk, adding 1 tablespoon at a time but don’t add more than 3 tablespoons.
How to make a cinnamon swirl keto bread?
Prepare the sugar-free cinnamon mix
To make a lovely low-carb cinnamon bread with a cinnamon swirl in the center, you need a cinnamon ‘sugar’ layer.
First, prepare the cinnamon ‘sugar.’ Of course, you are going to use a keto sugar-free sweetener – erythritol or xylitol – so it’s a sugar-free cinnamon mix. In a small bowl, simply whisk erythritol and ground cinnamon.
First, add half the bread batter. Next, sprinkle 1/2 of the sugar-free cinnamon mixture. Add the remaining bread batter and spread evenly. Finally, add the remaining cinnamon sugar-free mix.
To create a swirl effect into your keto cinnamon bread with almond flour, use a knife. Insert the knife on one side of the loaf pan, draw the knife through the batter and swirl to create a marble effect. Don’t overdo it; 2 swirls are usually enough.
Bake your cinnamon keto bread for 50 to 65 minutes in a preheated oven at 180C (350F). I recommend adding a piece of foil on top of the loaf pan after 20 minutes to prevent the top of the bread from browning too fast.
This is optional, but this cinnamon bread loaf is even better with a simple keto glazing. To make it, combine 1/3 cup sugar-free powdered erythritol with 1-2 teaspoons of heavy cream or canned coconut cream if dairy-free. Cool the bread loaf completely before drizzling the sugar-free glazing on top.
I designed this quick keto cinnamon bread recipe to contain minimal carbs and maximum taste. However, if you don’t mind adding 0.5 grams of net carb per slice, then add 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts or pecans into your batter. Believe me, nuts and cinnamon are the most amazing combo!
How to store your loaf?
This keto bread with cinnamon stores well in the fridge in a cake box for up to 5 days.
I recommend slicing the bread just before serving to keep the crumb moist. You can also freeze slices of this gluten-free cinnamon quick bread. Thaw at room temperature the day before.
