If you are in a celebrating mood, practically every day of the year is officially a holiday. Many of them are absurd and make us laugh. But, we do want to celebrate National Cinnamon Bun Day this coming Sunday. We love baked goods. And, we love cinnamon for the way it supports healthy blood sugar levels!
Cinnamon bark is one of Glucocil’s 14 clinically researched ingredients. It most likely won’t do much to aid blood sugar levels when baked into something so delicious. But these tasty, low-carb recipes won’t spike your blood sugar either.
Here are four delicious, low-carb cinnamon recipes you can use to celebrate in style this coming weekend and keep in your recipe box all season. We’ve reached the time of year when turning on your oven feels pleasant instead of just making your kitchen too hot!
Who doesn’t love starting the day with pancakes? This recipe makes a delicious pancake with a cinnamon bun’s classic frosting swirled right into the pancake itself. It’s as pretty as it is tasty, but it takes a little practice to be as perfect as it is in the picture. If you start making them now, you’ll be a pro when you have guests inside your home again! A serving has 124 calories, 3.2 grams of carbs and one gram of fiber. Get the recipe.
If you want to celebrate the holiday with the real-deal, this is the recipe for you. The “secret” of the dough is one that is well known to many low-carb bakers: mozzarella cheese. The cheese helps give the dough a great texture that holds together and is a little chewy. Its mild flavor lends itself to many baking recipes! With a cinnamon filling and a cream cheese frosting, it’s hard to tell you are eating something low-carb! The nutritional information on the page tells you the value for one roll. They are small rolls. We think a more realistic serving is two rolls, so we have altered it here. Two rolls have 188 calories, 4.2 grams of carbs and 1.6 grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
This cinnamon coffee cake has so many things in its favor! We love how easy it is to put together. We love how well it freezes. We love how well it goes with a cup of coffee. And, we love that we can serve it to our friends and family without them knowing it’s low-carb! It hits all the sweet spots! We suggest reheating it when enjoying it after the first time. It’s terrific at room temperature but even better when warmed! A slice has 260 calories, six grams of carbs and three grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
These bagels are an absolutely fantastic breakfast and a snap to make if you have a doughnut mold. If you don’t have a doughnut mold (and how many of us do), they are a little trickier to make uniform. You can mold them by hand, but that might make the baking time a little different. It depends on how comfortable you are. The flavor is worth it as they make for a delicious breakfast when they are warm and fresh out of the oven, and they keep well for several days! A bagel has 257 calories, seven grams of carbs and three grams of fiber. Get the recipe.
We hope these recipes help you celebrate this coming weekend and help you warm up your kitchen as the weather starts to cool! After months of finding you no-cook and grilling recipes, we’ll soon be bringing you many more dishes that will have you baking and roasting. These are just the beginning!
