Ingredients in Keto Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls
These naturally gluten-free pumpkin cinnamon rolls have three components: the keto dough, the pumpkin filling, and the maple cream cheese frosting. Here’s what you’ll need to make this keto pumpkin recipe:
- Shredded mozzarella cheese
- Cream cheese
- Almond flour
- Baking powder
- Ground flax meal
- Heavy Cream
- Keto Sweetener such as monkfruit or swerve
Is Pumpkin Keto-Friendly?
Yes! Pumpkin is low in carbs and contains a high amount of fiber. It’s easy to incorporate into a keto diet (thank goodness!).
Can the Mozzarella Be Substituted?
No, the mozzarella is a key ingredient. It helps bind the fat head dough together.
How to Make Keto Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls
This recipe is broken down into three simple parts — make the dough, prep the pumpkin filling, then bake and frost.
If you’ve never made an almond flour dough before, don’t fret. I walk you through the recipe step by step in the recipe card below.
Here’s an overview of how the easy keto cinnamon rolls are made:
- First, you make a pumpkin dough and roll it out into a rectangle. This is made very easy by rolling the dough between silicone baking sheets.
- Once the dough has been rolled out, combine the softened butter and pumpkin in a small bowl.
- Spread the pumpkin butter over the dough and sprinkle the cinnamon sugar and nuts evenly across the dough.
- Tightly roll up the dough and slice into 10 equal sections.
- Bake in a muffin tin at 350 degrees F for 12-15 minutes.
- Top with the maple cream cheese frosting and enjoy!
How Many Net Carbs Are in This Recipe?
These amazing Keto Pumpkin Cinnamon Rolls are about 2 net carbs each and that includes the maple cream cheese frosting! They also do not contain any eggs, so perfect for those with allergies!
Can This Recipe Be Made in Advance?
I think the dough makes the best cinnamon rolls when used right away. However, if you want to make them the night before, roll out the dough and place in plastic wrap, tightly seal, then the next morning slice and bake.
Tips for the Best Gluten-Free Cinnamon Rolls
- I recommend using two silicone baking mats to roll out the keto dough. The dough is very stick, and using silicone baking mats prevents you from having to flour your work surface.
- I prefer using swerve sweetener in this recipe. Note that it’s cheaper on Amazon than at my local grocery stores.
- I use this silicone muffin tin ALL THE TIME and this bundle comes with two sizes. I use the mini muffin size to make my Peanut Butter Fudge Fat Bombs.

Pumpkin is a great keto staple because it is fairly low in carbs, but high in fiber. Personally, I enjoy pumpkin all year, so don’t feel like this is only an autumn treat!

Hi Linda, Thanks so much I’m glad you enjoyed these! I think the dough makes the best cinnamon rolls when used right away. However, if you want to make them the night before roll the dough and place in plastic wrap and tightly seal, then the next morning slice and bake. I hope that helps!
Do you have to use flax meal??? Is there anything that you can substitute?
Hi Jane, you can use additional almond four in its place if you wish.
