Keto cinnamon rolls recipe – 100% dairy-free + paleo
There are plenty of keto cinnamon rolls recipes out there, but most use mozzarella and cream cheese as a base.
While fathead cinnamon rolls are delicious, they are not dairy-free! Here I am sharing with you a keto paleo cinnamon rolls recipe made with only wholesome ingredients and no dairy.
Let’s see the ingredients you need to make these keto paleo cinnamon rolls :
- Almond flour – use blanched, fine almond flour for best result. Almond meal is sometimes too coarse and will leave a gritty texture to the buns.
- Flaxmeal – this adds the gooey texture to the buns, don’t replace them.
- Whole psyllium husk and xanthan gum – the combo of both create a fluffy, pillowy texture. You can’t swap one for the other in this recipe, both are required, or the dough will end up sticky and wet, impossible to roll out.
- Eggs – I didn’t try the recipe egg-free, and I can’t advise on egg-free cinnamon rolls yet.
- Melted coconut oil or melted butter – butter adds a lovely golden color to the buns but both options works.
- Vanilla extract or essence
- Apple cider vinegar & baking powder – for an extra raise and fluffy texture.
- Yeast & maple syrup – I know maple syrup is not keto, but it’s keto-approved to use to proof your yeast. See the next paragraph for details on how yeast uses sugar. Otherwise, use inulin for a sugar-free keto replacement.
- Sugar-free crystal sweetener of choice like erythritol, monk fruit, or allulose. The dough recipe will work without sweetener if you prefer the dough unsweetened.
- Cinnamon – for the sugar-free cinnamon filling.
How to roll keto dough ?
Keto dough is stickier than regular dough. Therefore you must roll the dough between two pieces of parchment paper, preferably slightly oiled. This will prevent the dough from sticking to the rolling pin.

Then, make sure you roll the dough into a 12.5-inch x 9-inch rectangle. You can simply fold the border of the bottom piece of parchment paper to form a rectangle.
Thanks to this, when you roll the dough, it stays in the rectangle shape you designed, resulting in a perfect rectangle.
Finally, add the sugar-free cinnamon filling and roll the dough tightly using the bottom parchment paper sheet as a guide. I highly recommend you watch my recipe video below to guide you through this.
Yeast cinnamon rolls recipe
Cinnamon rolls won’t be the same without the yeasty flavor, right? Now, you probably wonder if it’s safe to use yeast on a keto diet as it requires sugar to proof the yeast.
Great news, you can proof the yeast with sugar like maple syrup! If you respect the ratio provided in the recipe, the yeast will consume all the sugar to activate itself, resulting in no sugar left in the recipe.
However, the yeast addition will guarantee the best fluffy, dairy-free keto buns with a pillowy texture like your favorite cinnamon rolls.
