Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C and grease an 8-inch round cake pan with butter or line with parchment paper.

  3. Now add, almond flour, coconut flour, erythritol, flaxseed powder, baking powder, xanthan gum, and salt.
  4. This mix will form a sticky dough. Freeze it for 15 minutes or until you find it easy to roll.
  5. Meanwhile, mix all the ingredients for cinnamon filling and keep aside .
  6. Now take 2 sheets of parchment paper, place the dough in between and roll it into a rectangle of desired thinness.
  7. Spread the cinnamon filling onto the dough, leaving a 1-inch margin at the top empty.
  8. With the help of parchment paper, roll the dough towards the empty inch making a tight log. Seal the edge.
  9. Cut the log crosswise into 12 equal pieces and transfer rolls to the prepared round cake pan.
  10. Bake for 5 minutes at 200’C, then reduce temperature to 175’C and continue baking for another 15-20 minutes until golden brown. If necessary, cover loosely with foil to prevent burning. These can be stored in an air tight container in the fridge up to a week.
