A festive holiday keto treat!
If you’re looking for a low-carb dessert that is sure to delight your family this Christmas, then I’ve got just the recipe for you.
This pull-apart keto sweet bread Christmas tree is a treat for the tastebuds and a treat for the eyes! 🤩 With all that cinnamon sweetness, you’d never know it’s keto!
Who needs sugary cinnamon rolls Christmas morning when you can make this instead!
I’ll be frank — there is a lot of cheese in this recipe (is that really such a bad thing 🤷♀️), but don’t let it fool you as the taste is still sweet and decadent, just like any good dessert should be. That sweet cinnamon flavor from the filling sure shines through!
Of course, the standout feature of this recipe is the festive Christmas tree shape making it a delicious option as an ending to a holiday feast, or as a holiday breakfast to serve to your family while opening presents. Word around the North Pole is that it’s even Santa approved! 🎅

Want to dress up your keto sweet bread Christmas tree?
We’ve included a simple sugar-free icing idea in the recipe, though you could do a dusting of keto confectioner sweetener such as Swerve, drizzle over some sugar-free melted chocolate, or make it ultra-rich with a thick keto frosting. Consider adding chopped pecans to your filling to add a little crunch, too!

It’s a keto Christmas!
I don’t know about you, but it really seems so much easier this year to stay on track with keto during the holidays. We’ve keto-fied so many of my traditional holiday favorites like pecan pie, gingerbread lattes, butternut squash soup, and even eggnog so that I don’t feel deprived and can avoid cheating.
This pull-apart keto sweet bread Christmas tree fits right in with any holiday meal, guaranteed to make even Kris Kringle consider the keto life. Enjoy!
My team member, Jenna, gave this keto sweet bread recipe a test for me, and here’s what she had to say:
“I loved the cheesy savory version of this, but the sweet version is my new favorite dessert. The dough is super easy to work with and twisting the branches was so simple with no cracks, tears, or breaking. And the filling…OMG, it is so flavorful. I can’t wait to make this again for my family on Christmas morning!”
