Mini Cinnamon Rolls

You can Brunch AND keto – yes, you can. 😉🥂

While I will have the occasional Mini Cheesecake for breakfast, not everyone agrees that is “appropriate breakfast food”  So … we’ll have to keep it a little more low-key basic with a Cinnamon Roll for the masses.

If you’re feeling like deviating from the norm, you could always start the day with a Peanut Butter Chip Protein Cookie and get away with it by adding the protein.  All jokes aside – you won’t feel bad having 2 or 3 of these rolls.

Tip:  spray your hands with cooking spray when rolling out the dough.
