1 Large Egg Yolk
1/2 Tbsp (7g) Melted Unsalted Butter
1 Tsp PURE Vanilla Extract
1/2 Cup (56g) Kirkland’s Blanched Almond Flour
3 Tbsps (25g) Confectioners Swerve
1/2 Tsp (2g) Xanthan Gum
Heaping 1/4 Tsp Baking Powder
Pinch of Salt
1/2 Tbsp (6g) Brown Swerve
Pinch of Cinnamon
1 Tbsp (9g) Confectioners Swerve
3/4 Tsp (6g) Heavy Whipping Cream
In a medium sized bowl add the egg yolk, melted butter, and vanilla extract
Once they’ve been added, whisk them until combined
Now add the dry ingredients
*Note: For best results measure them out to the gram on a food scale
When the dry ingredients have been added to the bowl, mix everything with a spatula until a crumbly sticky consistency forms
Once it does, use your hands to form a ball of dough
Now you’ll want to get out a small sheet of parchment paper, and add the ball of dough to it
Press the ball of dough out into a long thin rectangle about 1 inch thick and 8 inches long
When you’ve done that coat the dough quickly wth baking spray – or a little melted butter – and add the cinnamon and Brown Swerve to the top of it
Make sure to press the Brown Swerve down into the dough
Once it’s pressed into the dough, you can go ahead and roll it up to form a cinnamon roll
Now either coat a mug – or a small ramekin if using the oven – with baking spray and add the roll to it
Microwave for somewhere between 45 seconds to 90 seconds depending on the power of your microwave
*NOTE: My Microwave is 700 Watts and usually 75 seconds to 90 seconds is the perfect amount of time. Adjust accordingly depending on the power of yours. Yours will most likely take MUCH LESS TIME THAN MINE …. I always suggest undercooking mug recipe and the adding 5-10 seconds to finish them as needed!
If you decide to bake the cinnamon rolls they take about 15-20 minutes at 350 Degrees. Also, cook it on the lowest rack in the oven.
While the cinnamon rolls are cooking, you’ll want to add the icing ingredients to a small dish and mix them together until a thick creamy icing forms
Once it does, and the cinnamon roll cools off a bit, add the icing to the top of the roll and enjoy!
*NOTE: These are BEST the day that you make them. The become more dense and less “doughy” the longer you keep them around.
The Macros DO NOT include the “carbs” from Swerve. Swerve has 0 calories, so it should be tracked as 0 carbs. The FDA makes food companies list “sugar alcohols” as carbs, but that doesn’t mean they should be tracked as such. That’s why it’s ALWAYS important to look at the calories of sweeteners and determine the true carb count FROM THE CALORIES!
You’ll need to update the grams calculations manually if scaling the recipe. The plug-in won’t do that for you.
Net carb calculation:
11g Carbs – 7g Fiber = 4 NET CARBS per cinnamon roll
