What could be better than a cold winter evening immersed in your thoughts, wrapped in a blanket with a mug of hot tea and cinnamon buns? The keto buns version, of course. How to please yourself this winter, tells Alena BRUKAU.
In general, cinnamon keto buns are a favorite in all weather and seasons! Unfortunately, keto desserts are often very far from the originals: the stevia is bitter, the erythritol is cold, or the taste is too nutty. Here the stars aligned just right! This dessert won’t arouse the suspicions of even the pickiest critics. Usually, my non-keto husband accompanies everything with comments along the lines of “well, with jam is okay,” here it was: “delicious, but I did not understand whether it was a bun or a cookie”.
Bake for pleasure, and serve warm!
For the dough:
- 90 g almond flour
- 25 g coconut flour
- 2 teasp xanthan gum
- 2 teasp baking powder
- 2 teasp apple cider vinegar
- 1 egg (room temperature, lightly beat)
- water (3-7 teasp)
For the stuffing:
- 20 g dairy butter (room temperature)
- 2 teasp cinnamon
- 30 g erythritol
For the sauce:
- 40 g cream cheese (like Philadelphia, Mascarpone)
- 40 g butter (room temperature)
- 1 teasp vanilla
- 15 g erythritol (grind into powder)
- Turn on the oven to 180°C. Place baking paper on the baking tray.
- Mix all the dry dough ingredients in a food processor or on low speed with a mixer.
- Without stopping the mixer, add the vinegar and the egg. Then add water one teaspoon at a time. The dough should roll into a ball and be sticky. If it is not, it will be brittle.
- We put the dough ball in the foil and "squeeze" for 2 minutes. The homemade antistress ball followed by the goodies is a buzz kill!
- Roll out the square between two sheets of parchment or film.
- Mix all the filling ingredients and apply them to our square.
- Fold the square in half and cut it into 10 strips. Tie each strip into a pretzel knot. If the dough has the right structure, it will not break. Place the rolls on the parchment of a baking tray and put in the oven for 10-13 minutes, until golden. The main thing is not to overdo it, or else they will become brittle cookies (which is not bad, but not what we need).
- While the buns are in the oven, whisk together all the sauce ingredients. We take out the buns, lay them out nicely on a plate, and pour the sauce and oom-nom with Earl Grey with a blanket round your legs.
