Did you know fathead dough can be used in more than just pizza recipes? Today, I bring you a sweet version of the famous fathead dough in a delicious keto Cinnamon Roll recipe the entire family will love.
My mission in life is to show the world how tasty the keto diet can be. Many of us keto’ers love our steak, eggs, bacon, and cheese, but we don’t eat that for every meal. At least, most of us don’t!

The Best Keto Blender Pancakes
This Keto Cinnamon Roll recipe has been updated to make it even more ooey-gooey than before! However, the video below still shows the old way of making the cinnamon rolls.
For the dough, start by melting the mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring in-between.
Next, add the eggs and vanilla extract, and stir to combine. The eggs will not fully incorporate into the melted cheese, so just mix it as well as you can.
Then, whisk together the powdered swerve, almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt. Pour the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients.
Stir until a cohesive dough forms. You’ll want to get your hands in there, squishing the dough between your fingers to make sure everything is mixed thoroughly.
Roll the dough into a 12×12 square between two pieces of parchment paper.
For the filling, brush the melted butter over the dough, then sprinkle with granulated swerve and ground cinnamon. I like to fully mix my swerve and cinnamon before sprinkling on the dough for an even distribution
Using a pizza cutter, slice the dough into 12 equal strips. I find that cutting the dough before rolling the dough works best.
Place the 12 cinnamon rolls into a parchment-lined cake pan and bake at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes, until the tops turn golden brown. Remove the cinnamon rolls from the oven and set aside to cool.
Finally, make the frosting by beating together the powdered swerve and cream cheese until creamy. Then add the almond milk and vanilla crème stevia and continue beating until smooth.
Spread or pipe the icing onto the keto cinnamon rolls and enjoy!

Keto Cinnamon Roll Recipe with Sweet Fathead Dough
This keto cinnamon roll recipe uses a sweetened version of the super versatile fat head dough to bring you a low-carb version of a comforting family favorite for breakfast!
For the Dough:
- 2 cups pre-shredded, low-moisture mozzarella cheese
- 2 oz cream cheese
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 2 egg
- 1/4 cup Powdered Lakanto Monk Fruit
- 1 1/2 cups almond flour
- ¼ cup coconut flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- ¼ tsp salt
For the filling:
- 2 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons Lakanto Classic Sweetener
- 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
For the Cream Cheese Frosting:
- 3 ounces cream cheese, softened
- 3 tbsp almond milk
- 2 tbsp Powdered Lakanto Monk Fruit
- 1/2 tsp Vanilla Creme Stevia
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F
- Melt the mozzarella cheese and cream cheese in a microwave-safe bowl in 30-second intervals, stirring in-between. The cheese should be melted and no longer stringy.
- Add the eggs and vanilla extract, and stir to combine. The eggs will not fully incorporate into the melted cheese, so just mix it as well as you can.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the powdered swerve, almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and salt.
- Pour the dry ingredients into the bowl with the wet ingredients.
- Stir until a cohesive dough forms. You’ll want to get your hands in there, squishing the dough between your fingers to make sure everything is mixed thoroughly.
- Roll out the dough between parchment paper into roughly a 12-inch square.
- Brush the dough with the melted butter, then sprinkle with the swerve granulated sweetener and ground cinnamon (I like to fully mix the two together before sprinkling on the dough).
- Cut the dough into 12 equal strips, then roll up each strip. I find that cutting before rolling keeps me from squishing the cinnamon roll flat.
- Place the cinnamon rolls into a parchment paper-lined cake pan, leaving space between them.
- Bake at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes, until the tops are golden brown.
- While the cinnamon rolls are cooking, prepare the cream cheese frosting.
- Beat the cream cheese and powdered Swerve together with a hand mixer in a medium bowl.
- Add the vanilla creme stevia and almond milk and continue mixing until smooth. Add more or less milk to your preferred icing thickness.
- Spread or pipe the cream cheese frosting onto the cinnamon rolls.
- Serve and Enjoy!
Lakanto Powered Sweetener is 2:1 for regular sugar, so you will want to adjust the measurements if you choose a different low carb powdered sweetener for the dough and the frosting.

After I cut my dough into strips the dough wouldn’t roll, kept breaking? Would oiling the bottom parchment paper piece help?
Hey, Leigh! Yes, you can try lightly spritzing oil on the parchment paper.
Can I use homemade mozzarella cheese for this recipe??
Hey Rene! It depends on how much moisture you can remove. I don’t usually recommend fresh mozzarella from the store, because the moisture content is too high to work in this recipe. But with homemade, maybe you have more control over that?
I just made these. They are wonderful.
Yay!!! Thank you so much!
They were DELICIOUS!!! I made a different frosting bc I like my butter cream icing.
So glad you enjoyed the recipe!
You’re directions are different from your written directions and the actual printed recipe.What’s up with this?
Oh oops!! I recently updated the recipe, but apparently missed editing everything. Thanks for letting me know!
