Love cinnamon rolls?
Well, luckily you don’t have to miss out on rich and gooey cinnamon rolls because you can make your own grain-free, sugar-free, and DELICIOUS cinnamon rolls right at home! Plus, they happen to be easy to make – I love recipes that are simple and yummy! These would make such a terrific low carb addition to any special occasion brunch, and are perfect to bake during the holidays.
Start with some easy-to-make Fat Head dough!
I made a batch of this awesome almond flour and mozzarella cheese Fat Head dough that we usually make for pizza! Yep, all I did was add some baking powder, sweetener, and vanilla extract to the dough, and it works great for some quick and easy cinnamon rolls.
Simple process for baking cinnamon rolls!
Roll out the dough like you would making traditional cinnamon rolls, and then add melted butter, sweetener, and cinnamon. I chose to use brown sugar Swerve for the inside of my rolls and they turned out YUM! You can use your preferred sweetener instead, but I love how the Swerve caramelized nicely just like traditional rolls!

Tips & tricks for success:
- Almond flour dough can be sticky sometimes, so I recommend refrigerating this dough for at least 15 minutes, so it can dry out a little in the fridge before rolling it out.
- Roll out the dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper. Grease parchment paper with a little non-stick coconut oil spray or melted butter. This will help it not stick! (I had to go back and re-do this step, so learn from me.)
- Roll out your rectangle, and the dough should be a little thicker than you would roll for the pizza (about 1/4 inch thick).
- Once rolled up, cut into about nine one-inch pieces and arrange in a pie pan so they have a little room to rise.
