Easy Keto-Cinnabon “Muffins”

I was craving something sweet today and stumbled upon a recipe for cinnamon rolls, but of course it was definitely not part of the keto diet. So I put a little twist on it and came up with this recipe and it is absolutely amazing! Now I realize that this is a “muffin” recipe, but that is because I have had a long day (vet for the fur baby, 4 grocery stores hunting for spaghetti squash in the middle of a blizzard, weightlifting, cleaning and cooking dinner). Anyways, I got a little too lazy to sit there with a rolling pin and the dough consistency didn’t seem like it was going to cooperate with a rolling pin. So I took the quick way out and turned cinnamon rolls into “muffins.”

Next, in a separate bowl mix:

With this you can get about 8 small/medium muffins. Spray a muffin tin with cooking spray, evenly fill the tins, and bake for 15 minutes.

I took that first bite and was in heaven. My husband did ask me if I was lying to him about it being part of our keto diet….I assured him that I was not. You will just have to see for yourself!

I apologize that my pictures aren’t the greatest, I was way too excited to eat these so I just snapped a couple with my cell phone.  I promise that they are worth it!
