Imagine a large, cream stuffed cinnamon roll morphed into a magical keto recipe.
Yes, we’ve all had Cinnamon Rolls or have even made Mini Keto Cinnamon Rolls … but this stuffed version is a game-changer. Similar recipe as to what I’ve made before and this recipe takes it to another level with a layer of cream cheese in the middle.
Your choice to make this your own personal stuffed cinnamon roll, or share if you must. If you’ve never made a Fathead Dough before, don’t knock it until you try it!

Keto Dessert FAQs
The good news with a ketogenic lifestyle is that you do not need to make a ton of sacrifices — there are a ton of keto chocolate chip options available to you.
- Dark Chocolate: Lily’s Dark Chocolate Baking Chips
- Semi-Sweet Chocolate: Lily’s Semi-Sweet Chocolate Baking Chips
- Milk Chocolate: Lily’s Milk Chocolate Baking Chips
Most importantly, become aware of the “total net carbs” when choosing a keto chocolate chip. Since you likely have daily macronutrient goals, it’s important to not just look for something marketed as “low-carb.” Calculate your “total net carbs” by looking at the “total carbohydrates” and subtract “dietary fiber” and “sugar alcohols” on the nutrition facts.

Almond Flour and Coconut Flour are my personal favorite ketogenic flour options. Just know that you cannot replace certain flours 1:1 and you will need to make a conversion. Most grocery stores carry a variation of Almond and Coconut Flour.
There are quite a few sugar substitutes you can use with a ketogenic lifestyle. Personally, I prefer the Pyure brand of Erythritol over Swerve. Even better, in my opinion, is Monkfruit — my favorite is Lakanto Monkfruit for granulated, powdered, and golden (brown sugar).
There is a ton of convenience to the Swerve product family, though … I do enjoy their packaged cake mixes.
Fortunately most sugar substitutes, depending on which one you use, can be used 1:1 as you would sugar.
