Keto Cinnamon Bread
Ah, the smell of warm cinnamon in the air! My grandmother would prepare the toasted slices with cream cheese, and I was in heaven!
Oh, and how “healthy” we thought this breakfast was because it wasn’t “junk food.” How far we’ve come! Now we know that high carbs and high fat together are a big problem.
This breakfast was a staple at my grandmother’s house most mornings when we were running late, which, to be fair, was always my fault.
I’m not a morning person and will sleep until the very last second I have!
Now that we’ve created a low-carb cinnamon bread, this might become my new staple as well. Also, go ahead and try spreading cream cheese on a toasted slice of this bread.
You won’t regret it, and you’ll stay full for hours!
How To Make Keto Cinnamon Swirl Bread

This cinnamon keto bread recipe calls for both almond and coconut flour, as well as a bit of psyllium husk powder. And, of course, the star of the show, lots of cinnamon!
The combination of flours in this recipe makes for a moist yet dense quick bread that holds up to slicing, toasting, and spreading.
It’s also great all by itself. Making it the perfect choice to have all week!
And if you are a fan of cinnamon bread you should also try our keto nutmeg swirl bread that was inspired by this recipe.
Did I mention it’s also super easy to make? Even the cinnamon swirl! Everyone will be very impressed with your keto baking skills!
When making this keto cinnamon loaf, first, you’ll need to prep your 9.5 loaf pan by making sure it’s properly greased.
I also recommend you add a layer of parchment paper with a little extra over the sides to make it easier to pull the bread out once it’s baked. This is something I like to do to ensure it releases from the pan perfectly.
You’ll lift the two sides of the parchment paper, and it comes out perfect every time.
When it comes to making the bread, it’s as simple as mixing all the wet ingredients first and then adding the dry ones.
Creating a swirl is also very easy. You’ll mix your sugar substitute of choice with the cinnamon. Don’t forget to reserve two tablespoons to add on top of the bread for that extra added flavor and texture.
Pour half of your batter into the prepared pan, sprinkle your cinnamon sugar all over, and gently swirl with a toothpick (this is optional, the cinnamon sugar will swirl around on its own a bit), and then cover with the remaining batter.
Also optional is to sprinkle your reserved tablespoons of cinnamon sugar over the surface of the bread before baking.
While you enjoy the sweet smell of the keto cinnamon roll bread baking, you can mix together your confectioners’ sugar substitute, vanilla extract, and heavy cream to make your vanilla icing.
Vanilla icing is seriously easy and delicious!
Ingredients Needed To Make A Low-Carb Cinnamon Bread
The following are the ingredients you’ll need. Note that you can find the full printable recipe card at the end of the post.
Keto-Friendly Cinnamon Bread
- Finely milled almond flour
- Coconut flour
- Full-fat cream cheese softened
- Eggs, room temperature
- Psyllium powder
- Granulated sugar substitute
- Vanilla extract
- Baking powder
- Sea salt
- Cinnamon powder
- Granulated sugar substitute
Vanilla Sugar-Free Icing
- Confectioner’s sugar substitute
- Heavy whipping cream
- Vanilla extract
As far as sweeteners are concerned, I recommend the use of Lakanto’s granulated sugar substitute it’s their erythritol and monk fruit sweetener that is as close to sugar as it gets.
You could either use their regular granulated sugar or their gold, which has a delicious brown sugar flavor profile.
Having said that, I’m also partial to the brand Swerve which is an erythritol blend. Similar to Lakanto it uses sugar alcohols and has a 0 % impact on blood sugar.
You could also use the stevia and erythritol-based brand Pyure if you prefer to use a stevia-based sweetener.
Remember that if this is your pick, ensure you reduce the amount called for in the recipe by half since it’s a much sweeter option.
Lastly, if you can’t easily find a more natural sugar substitute, you can also use Splenda with good success.
I know not everyone would agree with me here, and I respect that, but in my book, it’s still better than regular sugar.

- 2 cups finely milled almond flour, measured and sifted
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 8 ounces of full-fat cream cheese, softened
- 4 eggs, room temperature
- 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
- 1 tablespoon of psyllium powder
- ½ cup granulated sugar substitute
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla xxtract
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon sea salt
- 2 tablespoons of ground cinnamon powder
- 1/4 cup of granulated sugar substitute
- 1/2 cup of confectioner’s sugar substitute
- 2-3 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream
- 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease, and parchment line the bottom of a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.
- In a large bowl, using an electric mixer combine the cream cheese, cooled melted butter, vanilla extract, and eggs one at a time. Mix until fully combined.
- To the wet ingredients add the coconut flour, almond flour, psyllium powder, sugar substitute, baking powder, and sea salt. Mix the batter until fully incorporated at medium speed for about 2 minutes. Note that this batter will be thick.
- Cinnamon Swirl: In a small bowl, combine the granulated sugar substitute and cinnamon powder with a small whisk. Reserve two tablespoons for the topping that will go on the surface of the bread right before baking.
- Place 1/2 the batter into the 9x5 loaf pan. Sprinkle the cinnamon-sugar mixture on top of the batter and using a toothpick gently swirl the cinnamon mixture. There is no need to over swirl since it will naturally do so while baking.
- Next, add the other half of the batter.
- Sprinkle evenly the top of the bread with the reserved cinnamon mixture.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
- Allow the bread to fully cool for about 10 minutes before removing from the loaf pan.
- While the bread cools, prepare the vanilla icing by combining the confectioner's sugar substitute, vanilla extract, and 2 tablespoons of heavy cream. If the icing is too thick, add the remaining tablespoon of heavy cream.
- Place on a wire rack to cool for 20-30 more minutes to fully cool and then drizzle with vanilla icing before slicing.
Vanilla icing is optional.
Store the leftover bread in the refrigerator for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 3 weeks.
For a less sweet bread reduce the sugar substitute in the batter to 1/4 cup. And for the cinnamon swirl reduce to 2 tablespoons of sugar substitute, plus omit the icing.
