Keto Cinnamon Rolls Muffins are a sweet muffin recipe which is made from almond flour and mixed with stevia. They have a warm cinnamon and erythritol center to give it a true cinnamon roll flavor. It is the perfect keto friendly recipe for the true sweet breakfast lover. Gluten-free. Dairy-free.
It’s January and that means most of us are trying to “be good” and eat less sugar. Right? That is the only way to achieve your weight loss goal or so some say. We like to think otherwise. Instead of focusing on the things you think you “should” or “shouldn’t” eat, why not satisfy your cravings with a few healthy swaps.
One of our favorite swaps is with sugar. We will be honest. We just can’t kick our sugar cravings and really don’t feel like we should. Instead, we try and opt for healthier alternatives such as liquid stevia, monk fruit sweetener, and erythritol.
Liquid stevia and monk fruit sweetener come in a liquid form and contain zero calories, the perfect amount of sweetness and absolutely zero after taste. The aftertaste was always a concern for us years ago when these types of sweeteners hit the market, but brands like NOW Foods have really worked hard to remove this. We also are especially partial to the NOW Foods liquid Monk Fruit sweetener because it is organic. They are one of the only brands on the market to make an organic version.
The other swap we have been using in many of our keto recipes lately is erythritol. We love this sweetener because there is an option for granular or confectioners’ making it perfect for baking. Erythritol is a low glycemic sweetener and also has very little aftertaste. NOW Foods erythritol comes from Non-GMO corn and is great in reducing calories in your recipes, like this Keto Cinnamon Roll Muffin Meal Prep.
How To Make A Keto Cinnamon Roll Muffin Meal Prep
This recipe is easy to make and sure to be a favorite that becomes part of your weekly meal prep rotation.
Start by mixing together your dry ingredients.
- almond flour
- coconut flour
- baking powder
Then mix together your wet ingredients in a separate bowl.
Combine your wet and dry ingredients.
Divide half of your batter into the bottom of each of 8 muffin cups.
Mix together your cinnamon and erythritol and sprinkle it evenly on top of the 8 muffins.
Evenly divide the remaining batter on top of the cinnamon and erythritol layer.
Once that is done simply bake and assemble your meal prep containers.
If you are keeping keto with the Cinnamon Roll Muffin Meal Prep then we recommend pairing them with macadamia or marcona almonds only. If you aren’t following a keto diet, then the strawberries add a nice touch of extra sweetness to the container.
