Keto Cinnamon Bread

When it comes to comforting keto sweet bread recipes, my favorites to make are coconut flour banana bread, pumpkin bread, and this easy cinnamon bread.

I’ve always been the kind of person who craves comfort food when the weather becomes cooler. Like clockwork, my cravings switch from avocado smoothies and coconut ice cream to chewy bagels and satisfying muffins. I find myself baking more and more during this time, especially quick breads and sweet loaves. While I don’t generally play favorites, my current obsession is this cinnamon bread! 

I’ve been meaning to share a keto cinnamon bread recipe for quite some time. It’s my go-to quick bread during the cooler seasons, and has become quite a hit amongst my family too! My sister loves having a slice for breakfast and my mom claims it to be the perfect addition to her peppermint mocha. I personally love it warmed up with a smear of butter, and may or may not have eaten half a loaf for dinner the other night!

No grains and no sugar are needed, but you’d never tell! It’s texture is moist, slightly fluffy, and with a crunchy exterior. It’s sweet and full of cinnamon flavor, without being overpowering! 

I had some friends over for brunch the other morning and served them this loaf and NO ONE believed me when I said it was low carb and gluten free- They thought it was made with white flour and sugar!

How do you make low carb cinnamon bread?

The Ingredients

  • Almond flour– Blanched almond flour or superfine almond flour. Avoid using almond meal as it could make the loaf dense and gritty. 
  • Coconut flour– A little coconut flour makes the bread a little more cakey and tender. 
  • Granulated sweetener of choice– I used erythritol, but monk fruit sweetener and keto brown sugar can also be used. 
  • Cinnamon– A must for a cinnamon heavy recipe! Use Saigon cinnamon if possible, as it has the best cinnamon flavor. 
  • Baking powder– Gives a slight rise and leavening to the loaf. 
  • Salt- Use this only if you use unsalted butter. 
  • Eggs– Room temperature eggs. 
  • Greek yogurt– The secret ingredient to give it extra moisture. You can also use sour cream or quark. 
  • Butter– Salted and softened butter. If you use unsalted butter, you will need to add the salt. 
  • Milk– Any milk can be used. I used unsweetened almond milk. 
  • Cinnamon crunch topping– A combination of cinnamon and erythritol or monk fruit sweetener. This forms the gorgeous cinnamon crunch on top! 

The Instructions

In a large mixing bowl, add your dry ingredients and mix well. Next, add the wet ingredients and mix until fully incorporated. Transfer to a loaf pan.

Now, sprinkle the top of the loaf with the cinnamon/sweetener mixture to cover it completely. Bake the loaf for around 50 minutes, until a skewer comes out clean and the top is golden and crunchy, Let the bread cool completely, before slicing it up.

Tips to make the best almond flour cinnamon bread

  • Be very generous with the cinnamon and sweetener topping, as some of it seeps into the batter while it is cooking.
  • Do not overbake the bread, as it continues to cook as it is cooling down. 
  • Feel free to omit the cinnamon crunch topping and replace it with some cream cheese frosting.
  • For an egg free version, you will enjoy a cinnamon swirl bread

Storing and freezing cinnamon bread

  • To store: Leftover cinnamon bread should be stored in the refrigerator in a sealed container or covered completely. This will keep well for up to 1 week.
  • To freeze: Place slices of the cinnamon bread in a ziplock bag and store in the freezer for up to 6 months.

      I made this today for my Christmas bread collection. My daughter will be the one who devours this since she is all about the cinnamon. The flavor is very good; it is slightly sweet the texture is good; if you make Arman’s keto bread you will find this a little bit softer than that bread. At least it was for me. The topping, for me, was a bit burned on the top but that could be my oven so next time I make this (and I will!) I will put the topping on half way through the baking. Thank you again!!

      OH WOW! 5hese are fabulous. I decided to make 12 muffins instead of one loaf, easier for portion control. I forgot to put in the vanilla, but it’s still pretty darn good. Also forgot the topping
      Will definitely be making these again

      Definitely A winner

      Recently started keto and missing bread. These are fantastic! I did as others mentioned and baked in muffins. I used sour cream. They almost burned on top so recommend reducing time for muffins by at least ten minutes. I put the topping on after, dipped tops in butter and then cinnamon sugar mix. So good! Can’t wait to try your other keto breads and goodies!

    5. Wow, Arman! Once again, I’m amazed. I had a slice warm out of the oven with some butter on it and I thought I’d died and gone to heaven. Doesn’t taste like keto at all… tastes decadent. Thanks! You’re so my new go-to keto recipe spot.
