Breakfast and Dessert Combine!

Making food choices can be hard. Maybe right now you are craving cookies. But maybe you also want cinnamon rolls. If you are on a keto diet, you probably want both! That is exactly how these cinnamon roll cookies came to life- a combination of sweet foods that can satisfy any craving while still being low carb. These little cookies are perfect for fall when warm cinnamon flavors are everywhere and the cold weather makes you want something warm and tasty. The secret to keeping these cookies so delicious yet also low carb is our favorite sweetener- erythritol!
While you may have heard about erythritol (especially if you use a lot of our recipes!), you may not know exactly what it is. To begin, erythritol is a natural sugar alcohol that is made by mashing and fermenting sugars found in certain fruits. Erythritol can also be made from corn which is currently the most common way to produce this sweetener.
Low Carb Cinnamon Roll Cookies
The main difference between erythritol and other sweeteners is the primary fact that it is made of sugar alcohol. Sugar alcohols do not break down in your body and therefore do not increase your insulin levels when you ingest them. They are processed through your digestive system and bloodstream quite quickly and leave your body in an almost entirely unprocessed state. Because of this, it is considered to be an almost zero-calorie, zero-carb sweetener. You can get that amazing sweet taste without any of the carbs!
Erythritol is also perfect to use in baking and can easily be used as a substitute for sugar (usually with a 1 to 1 ration, depending on your brand of sweetener). Erythritol does not dissolve as completely as sugar but our recipe here makes up for that by combining the sweetener with things like melted butter and cream cheese which will help the sugar dissipate.
Keto Cinnamon Roll Cookies

As you can see in our recipe for these tasty cinnamon roll cookies, we use erythritol in the cookie dough, the cinnamon filling, and the frosting for these cookies. By the time you are done making a batch of these cookies, you are sure to be familiar with our favorite sweetener! We know that you are going to love it just as much as we do too. When a cookie comes out this delicious while also being acceptable on a keto diet, it has to be pure magic….or pure erythritol!

Instructions
  1. Combine all the dry ingredient for the cookie dough in a large bowl.
  2. Blend in the butter, using your hands to crumble it evenly into the dry mix.
  3. Stir in the remaining wet ingredients until a dough begins to form. The dough may seem a little soft and dry at first but let it sit for about 5 minutes to firm up.
  4. Place the dough on a piece of parchment paper and roughly shape it into a rectangle. Place another piece of parchment paper on top of the dough and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
  5. Remove the dough from the fridge and, keeping it between the parchment, roll it into a rectangle about ½ inch thick. If the dough cracks a little, just press it back together.
  6. Brush the dough with the melted butter for the filling then sprinkle with the cinnamon and erythritol evenly across the entire dough.
  7. Roll the dough from the short ends of the rectangle all the way up so it is in a tight log.
  8. Slice the log into ¼ inch thick pieces and place on a lined sheet tray. Place the tray in the fridge for 20 minutes to chill.
  9. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
  10. Bake the cookies in the hot oven for 7 minutes.
  11. Whip all the ingredients for the frosting together in a bowl and then spread or drizzle using a piping bag over the cookies.
