Forget the sugar-laden, carb-heavy treats you get when you pop open a store-bought can, now there’s a ketogenic cinnamon roll in town. These cinnamon roll skewers use almond flour in place of wheat flour, so the texture is a bit denser and more filling. A denser, sturdier dough is necessary to with stand direct grilling heat. These cinnamon roll skewers are even more satisfying, especially when drenched in sugar-free maple-flavored syrup.

Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 4 1/2 tablespoons erythritol, divided
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons ground cinnamon, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons melted coconut oil, divided
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans


  • Grill Grate
  • Large Bowl
  • Medium Bowl
  • Skewers
  • Step 1

    In a large bowl, stir together the almond flour, 3 tablespoons of erythritol, baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, cream of tartar, salt, egg, vanilla, and 2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil until well combined.

  • Step 2

    Form 11/2-teaspoon portions of dough into balls. There should be enough to make 12 equal balls. Place the balls on a cutting board or other flat surface. Using your palm, flatten each ball to about 1/3 inch thick.

  • Step 3

    In a medium bowl, stir together the remaining 1 tablespoon of erythritol, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon, the cream cheese, and pecans.

  • Step 4

    Spoon about 1 heaping teaspoon of the cream cheese mixture onto the middle of each flattened ball. Roll each piece of dough around the filling and back into a ball. Place them on a dish and refrigerate for 15 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Insert the Grill Grate and close the hood. Select GRILL, set the temperature to MAX, and set the time to 6 minutes. Select START/STOP to begin preheating.

  • Step 6

    Remove the dough balls from the refrigerator. Place 3 dough balls onto each of 4 (4- to 6-inch) skewers.

  • Step 7

    Place the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of coconut oil in a shallow dish. In a separate shallow dish, combine the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of erythritol and remaining 1/4 teaspoon of cinnamon. Place each skewer in the oil, turning to coat the dough. Then, dip it into the cinnamon mixture to coat evenly.

  • Step 8

    When the unit beeps to signal it is preheated, place the skewers directly onto the Grill Grate. Close the hood and cook for 3 minutes. After 3 minutes, turn the skewers over, close the hood, and cook for an additional 3 minutes.

  • Step 9

    Remove the skewers from the grill and serve.
