Pretty Easy Keto Yeast Dough Cinnamon Rolls from Inspector Gorgous .
After making this recipe several times now, I highly recommend it! Follow the link to see and print.
"Pretty Easy" is a fair assessment, however, be aware, they are a little time consuming but not super hard to make.
Have you ever worked with Almond Flour? If not here are some helpful notes for you, or if so and you get frustrated these notes may help you too.
Working with almond flour is NOT like working with regular flour.
It is crumbly even when wet. So be prepared to dip your fingers in the warm water when working with the dough, it helps. Even if they crumble and break up a bit they will taste great.
This recipe calls for some coconut flour. My daughter is allergic to coconut flour so we substitute psyllium husk powder.
What is psyllium husk powder?
Psyllium is a form of fiber made from the husks of the Plantago ovata plant's seeds. It sometimes goes by the name ispaghula. It's most commonly known as a laxative.
If you are eating Keto you have probably seen this ingredient on a list somewhere.
When searching for Psyllium Husk Powder in the grocery store you will find it in the pharmacy section with other fiber/digestive products. Be sure to look for organic options with no added sugar if you are sticking to Keto eating or if you just watch your sugar intake.
It is helpful to have psyllium husk powder on hand for keto baking. I have a delicious keto garlic bread recipe that calls for psyllium husk powder! We even use it for pizza dough! Be sure to check back, I will post that soon.
Other notes - dairy free cream cheese is an option for the frosting and using oil in place of butter if you are highly allergic to dairy.
A note about dairy free cream cheese - I have used it in recipes such as Chicken Crack to make a creamy sauce, however when making frosting I have used 1/2 regular and 1/2 dairy free. In our home we have a mild reaction to dairy when eaten in small doses and a more extreme reaction when eating in large doses. My experience with Daiya Cream Cheese* has been good when cooking so I would recommend trying it for the frosting!

This is an excellent, versatile recipe that is easy to adjust for preference and food allergies if needed.
Enjoy!! I would love to hear if you make these cinnamon rolls! My family loves them.
