Cinnamon Roll in a Mug - Keto


I started making this recipe for these grain free cinnamon roll Keto mug cakes a few weeks ago. I found the inspiration for this recipe over at A Heart Surrendered  and tweaked it a little to fit my tastes and calorie count.  These taste as good as your everyday cinnamon rolls made with flour and sugar, but they are totally grain free and sugar free.  YUM! I can not believe, not only how amazing these taste, but also how filling they are.  One is truly enough.  So if you are on a reduced calorie, keto diet, these totally fill the bill.

Keto Cinnamon Roll in a Mug

Ingredients:

1 TB Melted Butter
1 tsp erythritol
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Pinch of salt
pinch of baking soda
1/4 tsp vanilla
1/4 tsp maple extract
egg yolk
1/4 cup almond meal

Mix ingredients well and put into a mug or small ramekin.

Cinnamon Sugar Mix Ingredients:

1 TB erythritol granulated not powdered
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Mix the erythritol and cinnamon together.

Next, take a knife and starting at the center of your dough, swirl it out and then pour the cinnamon sugar mixture into the swirl marks and the rest will sit on top of the cinnamon roll.

Microwave for 45 to 60 seconds depending on your microwave.  Mine is normally done in 45 seconds.

I put a tsp of butter on top of my cinnamon roll when it comes out of the microwave and it is delicious.

I hope that you like this recipe as much as I do.  It is soooo very good.  Let me know what you think of these cinnamon roll.  I always love hearing from you.

Have a great week.

    1. Hi Julie,
      Erythritol is a natural sugar substitute that does not spike your blood sugar. Similar to stevia, but it actually looks and tastes like sugar. They have found that your blood sugar still spikes even with things like splenda and equal. Even though they are 0 calorie, your body will still act as though you just ate sugar. You can find erythritol at a natural food store like Whole Foods. Some grocery stores carry the brand called Swerve which is erythritol.
      Let me know if you try it.
      Have a great week.

    1. Hi Donna,
      Good luck Donna. Let me know what you think. If you have any questions and am happy to answer them if I can. I feel much better and I have lost almost 20 pounds since December. It is slow, because sometimes I took some time off of the diet for a couple of months. Since I have been trying new recipes it has been easier.
      Let me know what you think.
      Have a great week.

  3. I'm on a candida diet and can eat very little. I used xylitol instead of erythitol and skipped the maple extract. I used 1/2 tsp of xylitol and didn't put the topping on. It was still soo so good to me. Now to wait and see if I have I a reaction. Thank you so much!!!!

    1. Kristen,
      Did you have a reaction? Are you ok? I'm so sorry that you are having to go through this. It's tough. I have some other recipes for cookies and breakfast that I can share with you if this recipe works. Let me know.

  4. I just made this tonight because I wanted some dessert. It is so yummy! I used coconut flour (but only about 1/8th of a cup) and I used almond extract instead of the maple extract. It's super delicous! Thanks for sharing! :)

    1. This sounds delicious also. I'm happy that it worked with the less coconut flour. Did it come out smaller? I also love almond flavor, so that sounds like a great alternative.
      Thanks for coming by.

    1. Hi Alana,
      I'm so happy that you like the recipe and wow, what an amazing weight loss. The thing that I found from a keto diet was how amazing I felt. I had not inflammation, my asthma went away, my hot flashes were better. It was truly amazing how much better I felt.
      Have a great week. I really appreciate your writing me.

  6. I don't see any macros on here to keep track so I did my best to calculate it, looks like about 318 calories, 22g carbs, 30g fat, and 19g of dietary fiber (making these about 3g carbs net!). I also added it to MFP in case anyone wants to search for it. Hope this helps!

    Also of note, VERY tasty! 10/10 will make again! Thanks, Debi :)

    1. Thank you so much for putting the macros in. When I first started making the Keto recipes, I didn't think about that. I'm so happy that you liked the recipe. I love these. They are such a treat, and super easy to make.
      Have a great week.

    1. I have never tried them in the oven, so unfortunately I can't answer that question. I'm so sorry.

    2. I don't own a microwave, so I bake all the mug cake recipes and other microwave things. I put them in a ramekin or Pyrex bowl and bake at 350 for 12-18mins

  10. This is good. I didn't have maple flavor and didn't want to wait to get it so I used about a half ts of sugar free maple syrup. Worked fine. I like the granulated erythritol on top as it adds a little crunch. Thanks for recipe.

  11. I've made this twice so far and sweetened some cream cheese to smear on while it's warm. Yum!! I use egg whites alot so this is great to use up those yolks!

  12. I love this so much! It's great for those sugar cravings that show up trying to derail my keto way of eating. I always sub in almond extract for the maple and only need 1tsp of Swerve in the topping instead of 1T. It reminds me of a combination of a donut/coffee cake/Moravian sugar cake! Thanks so much for posting.
