The texture is perfect. Just like eating a real cinnamon roll. I knew when my daughter ate.one and liked it that it was a winner. She usually takes a bite, makes a.face and I know she doesn't like something. The only thing she didn't really care for was the icing, just because she isn't crazy about cream cheese. I loved the whole thing. These will be perfect for when my sugars are low.

I'm in quite the mood today. I made a Spaghetti Squash Lasagna casserole and cauliflower bread sticks from your lighter side to go with it. I will try and post recipes and pics later.

Thanks..

My daughter usually stays far away from my low carb, sugar free baking but she always eats these, so that say's a lot!! I like that they are so convenient, fast and easy to make too.

Hi Gina, do you have exact measurements for the icing?

***Also I don't have the Maple Grove etc pancake mixes - can I use Jen's Low carb baking mix in it's place? These look SO delicious.

I used Big Train pancake mix, so you could use any pancake mix. I'm not sure if just using a baking mix will work.

Icing

1/4 cup cream cheese softened
2 Tbsp calorie countdown milk
1 cup powdered eryrhritol
1/4 cup Just Like Sugar

Whisk cream cheese, whisk in milk, sift in sugar and blend until smooth.

Gina - is there something else besides Just Like Sugar that I can use? Also I just looked this up on netrition and there is a few different types of Just Like Sugar. I will put this on my list to get the next time I place an order but did you use the one for baking (Powdered sugar) or the table top kind which is like regular sugar?

Would I be able to use just straight Carbquick for the pancake mix then?

Thanks and I can't wait to make this.

I used the table top, it's really light. There is a recipe for Carbquick cinnamon rolls that I have made before. I will look for the recipe and post it tomorrow for you.

I just did a quick search. Heres the recipe if you want to try it out. They're not as good as these ones but they were pretty good. It's been a while since I made them.

CQ Quick Cinnamon rolls


1 2/3 cup CQ 1 Tbls Splenda 1/2 cup low-carb milk (or 1/4cupcream and 1/4 cup water) 1/2 cup softened butter 1/4 cup brown sugar substitute (I used 1/4 cup Splenda and 1/2 Tbls Molasses mashed with the back of a spoon until well mixed) 3 teaspoons cinnamon 1/2 cup nuts (Optional)

In a bowl combine CQ, 1 Tbls Splenda and milk until moist. Let it sit for a minute. Stir again until well combined. Sprinklesome Carbquik on a kneading surface and turn dough onto surface.

Knead for approx. 3-4 minutes. Add more carbquik if necessary to keep dough from sticking.

Roll into a rectangleshape. (It helped me to rollonly in onedirection instead of back and forth.)

Spread butter over entire rectangle, then sprinkle with cinnamon and brown sugar substitute.

Roll up lengthwise and slice into 6-8 rolls.

I hope it's alright to post the recipe in this thread. Don't want to step on anyones toes.

Bake at 400 degreees for 20 minutes. Spread icing over top and serve warm!

Icing-

1/4 block of cream cheese 1/3 cup UNSALTED Butter 3/4 cup Splenda 1 teaspoon vanilla

Whip on high speed for 2 minutes

Msbones, you can use splenda or any AS that melts when mixed. I don't think granular erythritol would work.

I have made the cinnamon rolls with Carbquick and they weren't the greatest, but I was wondering if I could use Carbquick in place of the pancake mix that is in your recipe?

It's Carolyn's recipe, but I'm not sure if the carbquick would work. It's a bake mix not a pancake mix, so I don't know if it would work the same. Sorry, maybe someone else knows.

I tried these today and mine were a little dry and did not rise like Ginaaaaaa's. The flavor reminded me it was a pancake mix. I used Big Train pancake mix and baked for 20 minutes. My oldest daughter said it was yum but she was dunking it in milk. The only thing that saved it was the suggestion of dunking them in coffee and that did the trick. Not sure what happened but will keep tweaking and testing until I get a softer cinnamon roll recipe.

Gina - have you made these lately? Looking at this thread made me want cinnamon rolls and I just happen to have some Big Train Pancake Mix. Do you have a carb count for them? TIA

I haven't made them in a while TG but there's 108 g carbs and 45 g fiber in 2 1/4 cups of pancake mix. 63 net carbs total. Then divide that by however many rolls you get.

Thanks, Gina, I'm thinking if I could get 12 cinnamon rolls for less than 6 carbs each I'd be in heaven! May be a little more with the other ingredients and icing but certainly no where near what a bakery cinnamon roll would contain. I am going to make these tomorrow or maybe Thursday. I'll post my results.

I'm definitely going to make these soon, but can't use either of the mixes you ladies mentioned because I avoid wheat. I'll need to find an alternative that is LC and GF.

If anyone knows of one, I'd be grateful if you'd mention it here.

Sounds good, can't wait to see the results!!

I may try it with the BTF mix sometime. I'm not eating wheat much anymore either.
