How to make a keto cinnamon bread?

This keto cinnamon bread recipe is the easiest keto breakfast bread recipe ever! All you need to make this quick cinnamon bread are 10 simple wholesome ingredients.

Low carb cinnamon bread


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

Dry ingredients

First, measure the dry ingredients precisely, if you are using a measuring cup, fill-pack the flour and level up. Whisk all your dry ingredients together to evenly combine them.

Liquid ingredients

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 completely the bread loaf before drizzling the sugar-free glazing on top.

Add nuts!

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.

  • Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Line a 9-inch x 5-inch loaf pan with a piece of parchment paper. Lightly oil the paper to make sure the bread doesn't stick to the pan. Set aside.
  • In a small mixing bowl prepare the cinnamon swirl, simply whisk erythritol and cinnamon. Set aside.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, sugar-free crystal sweetener, melted coconut oil (or butter), almond milk and vanilla Make sure that your coconut oil is not burning hot or it will 'cook' the eggs and create lumps. All your ingredients must be roughly at the same temperature, think room temperature especially the eggs and almond milk. Cold ingredients, just out of the fridge will solidify the coconut oil creating oil lumps. Otherwise use melted butter to prevent this from happening. Set aside.
  • In a different large mixing bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, and baking powder. Stir to evenly combine the flours.
  • Pour the liquid ingredients onto the dry ingredients.
  • Stir all the ingredients together with a baking spoon until it forms a consistent bread batter with no lumps. Combine for at least 1 minute to make sure the coconut flour fiber absorbs the moisture.
  • Transfer roughly half the bread batter onto the loaf pan.
  • Sprinkle half the reserved cinnamon/erythritol mixture, then add the remaining batter and sprinkle the remaining cinnamon/erythritol mixture on top of the bread.
  • Draw a knife through the batter and swirl to create a marble effect. See my picture in the post for tips.
  • Place the loaf pan in the center of your oven and bake at 180°C (350°F), fan-forced mode if you can for 15 minutes. After 15 minutes decrease the temperature to 160°C (320°F) and cover the loaf pan with a loose piece of foil. This will prevent the top from burning and will allow the middle to bake slowly. Keep baking for 45-60 minutes in total, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out with little to no crumbs on it.
  • Cool for 10 minutes in the loaf pan, then lift out the cinnamon bread from the pan using the hanging pieces of parchment paper.
  • Transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely. It is a thick bread and it usually takes 3 hours to fully cool. Be patient!


  • Store your bread in the pantry on a cake box for up to 3 or 4 days. Slice before serving to keep the bread crumb moist.
  • Enjoy as breakfast, teatime, plain, or with sugar-free chia seed jam.
  • Freeze the bread slices in an airtight box making sure the slice doesn't overlap (or place a piece of parchment paper between each slice to make it easier to defrost individually. Defrost the slice the day before at room temperature, on a plate, don't overlap the slices.

    Was tasty. I added pecans. I made sure everything was measured correctly yet I could not cut in slices- it all just crumbled.I was very disappointed as I was looking at this as a go to recipe seeing how easy it was to put together.Where could I possibly have gone wrong? I followed the recipe exactly as stated.

    • I am sorry to hear that. Did you wait 3 hours before slicing your bread? If too hot the bread will be fragile. A bread or loaf that crumble apart means that the bread is too moist, under cooked or maybe you used butter instead of coconut oil or you are using almond meal which is less absorbent than ultra fine almond flour. I hope it helps, XOXO Carine
