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.

Instructions
  1. Combine almond flour, baking powder, and mozzarella cheese in a microwave safe bowl. Add in cream cheese and cook in the microwave for one minute. Stir and then cook for an additional 30 seconds in the microwave.
  2. Mix in egg, vanilla, and sweetener, and stir well, until dough forms. Place in refrigerator for 15 minutes to firm and dry out dough a little.
  3. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  4. Place dough in between two pieces of greased parchment paper. (I used coconut oil spray to grease, in order to avoid sticking.)
  5. Roll with a rolling pin into a rectangle. Dough should be about 1/4 inch thick.
  6. Spread melted butter over the top. Sprinkle sugar-free sweetener over the top, followed by ground cinnamon.
  7. Roll dough, starting from the long side, and roll into a tube. Cut nine 1 inch pinwheel slices using a string or knife.
  8. Transfer each slice into a greased pie pan, or small casserole dish, leaving a little room for rising in between each roll.
  9. Bake for 24-30 minutes, until golden brown and cooked through. Remove and let cool a bit.
  10. For the icing: Whip up all ingredients using a hand mixer. Spread a teaspoon or so onto each cinnamon roll. Enjoy!
  11. Refrigerate leftovers in a covered container up to a few days. These are great re-heated, too!
