Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls (Paleo, Keto & Dairy Free)
The time has come! It's now officially appropriate to share and bake pumpkin spice goods and this time I'm coming at you with some cinnamon rolls... THE Pumpkin Spice Cinnamon Rolls and the only recipe you'll need in your life!
These rolls are super easy to make so don't worry, you've got this! I followed the same instructions from last years fall recipe of Low Carb Apple Cinnamon Rolls, another must try! Both recipes will surely get you rolling into the fall mood!
The ingredients here are simple!
Almond Based Cream Cheese
You can choose to change the almond based cream cheese into the regular one, in this case I wanted this recipe to be dairy free, just to make sure anything can enjoy some cinnamon rolls with some delicious cream cheese filling.
Overall, this recipe will be perfect to share with your loved ones during this season or just to leave it for meal prep, like I did!
What about Xanthan Gum?
It's a natural food additive that it's made from fermentation and used as a stabilizer on recipes. Basically it works like glue, since this is a gluten free recipe this guy can be very useful and a great grain-free baking secret weapon.
It does have some side effects but remember that this usually happens when somebody consumes it on repeat or a very sensible person, these could be bloating, increase bowel movements (nothing severe) and it does have some benefits too! Like lowering blood pressure for example.
In this case we are only using 1 tsp, which is 5 grams. This recipe makes 8 rolls so that just makes 0.625 grams per serving. You don't have nothing to worry about!
You'll find this recipe to be:
And of course, delicious! Disclaimer: These are more like a soft cookie roll, chewy and crumbly. Got you drooling?
As sweetener I used the usual and also favorite, monk fruit from Lakanto. This is my low carb baking weapon and staple, it doesn't leave with you a weird after taste and you can get a discount when you use the code PURELYHL on an of your purchases.
Can I freeze these?
Yes! I actually freeze all of my baked goods in order to try their durability as well and these are great to freeze inside a plastic bag.
Pro tip: If you have an air fryer, place them for 3 minutes at 400F for a crispier experience. And top them with some keto maple syrup... and coffee on the side.
What will I need for this recipe?
One mixing bowl
One rolling pin
Knife or pizza cuter
One baking tray
One mixing spoon
It's also mess free, you only need to clear you kitchen top because it does require some space to roll the dough!
Are you ready to start baking? You are going to be loving them with your latte on the side and wearing some comforting fuzzy socks! So don't forget to save, pin, bookmark or share this recipe with your loved ones!
