Low Carb Sweet Rolls

Low Carb Sweet Rolls

I am a diabetic so I am always looking for ways to enjoy food without raising my glucose levels. I was introduced to low-carb mozzarella dough recipes. The first try was a little dry. So I continued to play around with it. My kids wanted me to try sweet rolls. The second try was amazing!!!

Dough Ingredients

4 cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
4 oz Cream Cheese
1 1/2 cups Almond Flour
2 Eggs

Cinnamon Filling Ingredients

1/2 cup Butter melted
1/3 Truvia One Sugar Blend or Coconut Sugar
2 T Cinnamon

Orange Filling Ingredients

1/2 cup Butter melted
1/3 Truvia One Sugar Blend or Coconut Sugar
1/2 tsp McCormick Valencia Orange Peel
15 drops doTerra Wild Orange Essential Oil

Frosting Ingredients

4 oz Cream Cheese
1 T Unsalted Butter
1 T Truvia One Sugar Blend or Coconut Sugar

Directions

Preheat oven to 425F.

Mix together filling ingredients of choice and set aside.

Mix Frosting ingredients together and set aside.

Low Carb Frosting

Combined cheese and almond flour. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Stir return to the microwave for 1 minute. Add Egg and incorporate completely. Place between 2 pieces of baking parchment paper and roll out into a rectangle. Remove the top baking paper/parchment. (If the mixture hardens and becomes difficult to work with, pop it back in the microwave for 10-20 seconds to soften again but not too long or you will cook the egg.) Spread filling over the dough and roll. Slice into 8 pieces and place in a greased 9×9 baking pan. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes until golden brown. Spread with frosting while warm.
