No worries about falling of your diet with this delicious recipe since it’s keto-friendly and low carb. All the health benefits without sacrificing flavor.
When it’s chilly outside, if you’re like me, you crave something warm and comforting. The perfect fall night is one that’s spent in front of a nice fire, wrapped in a fluffy blanket, with a warm beverage or dish to enjoy. Picturing that just gives me goosebumps because it’s truly the perfect depiction of why people love fall. Personally, I adore fall, mainly because of all the comfort food that comes to life during the season.
That’s why I made this keto mug cake as a way to welcome the fall season. There’s rarely enough time to throw together an entire batch of cinnamon rolls then wait for them to bake. Plus, there’s not always a need for an entire batch. However, there are those times where you crave a cinnamon roll, but you don’t want to eat unhealthy and you don’t want to have leftovers. That’s where the low carb cinnamon roll mug cake comes in. It’s quick, easy, super delicious, and keto-friendly. There’s no big batch to make or store afterwards and there’s definitely no seconds to tempt you into eating more than you should.
How Do You Make a Keto Cinnamon Roll Mug Cake?
If you’ve never made a keto mug cake before, you’re going to be baffled at how easy it is. Who knew eating healthy was so simple? Well, I did, but now you’ll get to find out just how simple it truly can be. Place all of the ingredients, except the cream cheese and water, in a mug and mix thoroughly. Place the keto cinnamon cake in the microwave and bake for a minute and a half. Allow cup to cool a bit before running a knife, gently, around the contents of the cup. Gently tilt the cup upside down so the contents come out in one piece on a plate. Add the final two ingredients to the cup, microwave for another 25 seconds, then pour it over your cinnamon roll on the plate. That’s it. Few ingredients, little effort, and loads of amazing flavor in the perfect keto cinnamon cake.
Tips for Making Keto Cinnamon Roll Mug Cake
- It’s best to use a microwave safe mug or cup. If you’re unsure if it’s microwave safe, don’t use it. Your cup could break and ruin the recipe.
- A traditional coffee cup works best for this recipe due to the size and shape. Take note of the size and shape of your mug as cooking times and visual outcomes may vary based on this fact alone.
- You can use other sweetener options if desired. However, monk fruit sweetener is a more granulated style sweetener. This means your substitution may alter the outcome of the recipe in taste and texture. I have not tested other sweetener options therefore, I can’t offer a guaranteed outcome if the recipe changes.

Common Questions About Keto Cinnamon Roll Mug Cake
Can You Microwave Cinnamon Rolls?
I would not suggest microwaving traditional cinnamon rolls. It would take much longer and they wouldn’t turn out near as good as if they were baked in the oven. This low carb cinnamon roll mug cake works in the microwave because of its size and specifically adapted recipe. Traditional cinnamon roll recipes are not adapted for the microwave and if cooked this way, could result in a poorly cooked and uneven finished product. However, if you would like to use the microwave for your cinnamon rolls, it’s best to cook them one at a time. The best option is in a high bowl, mug, or cup. This surrounds the cinnamon roll with heat in the cooking process, giving it a more even outcome. However, I wouldn’t suggest doing more than one at a time. Start with 45 seconds and work your way up as times will vary from microwave to microwave.
How Do You Heat Up Cinnamon Rolls in the Microwave?
If you have cinnamon rolls already baked, heating them up is a cinch in the microwave. Simply place them on a microwave safe plate or in a bowl and start by cooking them at 10 seconds. Each microwave is different, so you don’t want to overcook them as this will make them tough to chew. If your cinnamon roll is pretty dried out and heating it up didn’t seem to do the trick, place a moist napkin over the top of it before heating it up. The cinnamon roll will absorb the moisture and soften up.
How Do You Heat Up Cinnamon Roll Icing?
Depending on the icing you’re using, most should heat up nicely by being placed in the microwave for 5-10 seconds at a time. It will also depend on whether or not the icing has been stored in a fridge or not. If it’s colder, it will take longer to heat up. Start with five seconds and work your way up. Cinnamon roll icing isn’t very thick so it can burn or crisp up easily.
There’s nothing better than the perfect fall or winter night. Unless, of course, there’s a delicious, warm, and comforting dessert involved. That’s when it becomes the perfect night, all the way around. Don’t waste that perfect night making a full batch of cinnamon rolls or another dessert. Whip up this Keto Cinnamon Roll Mug Cake instead so you can kick back, relax, and enjoy your perfect evening.

Can I use stevia instead of monk fruit?
Do you know of any keto pasta substitute.. I do not like the noodles that are in liquid.
You can use another sweetener – adjust to your taste. As far as keto noodles – check these out https://kimspireddiy.com/best-keto-noodles-low-carb-pasta-noodle-idea-homemade-quick-easy-ketogenic-diet-recipe-completely-keto-friendly/
Can almond flour be used instead of almond meal?
I used almond flour and it worked just fine
What other oil can you use?
Coconut oil. The texture may be a little different as coconut oil goes solid on cooling so you may need to add a little extra water or cream cheese to compensate.
What other oil can be used in place of avocado?
This has become one of my favorite keto recipes!! Thank you.
