Cinnamon Rolls (modified old recipe)
 
This is my recipe that I have modified. I keep Jennifer Eloff Bake mix on my counter. (I love both of her bake mix recipes since I am not GF) So instead of putting all my ingredients in the original recipe, I used her bake mix
http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a1...psd35ba12e.jpg

Dry ingredients
3/4 cup Jennifer Eloff Bake Mix <------- This is different
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp xanthum gum
1 tbl splenda
2 tbl diabetisweet brown sugar (I have some of this still)
1/2 tsp cinnamon <-------This is new
Stir to mix the ingredients

Wet Ingredients
2 eggs
3 tbl oil melted butter <-------This is different
1/2 to 3/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese, you can use cheddar too
2 tbl toriani vanilla syrup
1/2 tsp vanilla

Mix dry and wet ingredients and let sit for 5 minutes

cinnamon filling

2 tbl melted butter
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tbl diabetisweet brown sugar or enough to make the mix kinda thick
1/2 tsp guar gum <------This is new, this helps the cinnamon filling be thicker and stay put

I usually only make 4 rolls from this mix <-----I use a wilton cookie pop pan covered in non-stick foil (see picture)

Start with about 2 1/2 tablespoons of the batter, patting down with wet fingers.

Divide the cinnamon filling with small spoonfuls in the center of each roll not going completely to the edge

The next step requires wet hands. I wet my left hand and about 2 to 3 tablespoons of batter I begin to pat a big cookie shape patty on the palm of one hand with wet fingers from my other hand. Once shaped I gently place the patty in the center making like a sandwich. I do this for all 4. The left over batter is divide evenly covering the roll to the edge. I do it this way so not to get the cinnamon filling on the top layer

Top with almond slivers (optional)

Bake 15 minutes at 350 till golden brown

I sprinkled almonds on top but you could use pecans or leave them off totally

Bake for 10 to 12 minutes @ 350 degree oven till golden brown

For a sweet topping like on traditional cinnamon rolls. 2 tbl softened butter and 2 tbl powdered erythritol 2 or 3 drops liquid splenda and 1 tsp warm water. Stir till smooth. If you want it to be more glaze like add a bit more water. Serve warm

Geesh, that is so clever, Anita! You are very gifted in the kitchen, you know that? This is not the first time you've surprised me. :)

Which bake mix did you use? The Splendid Low-Carb Bake Mix? Curious me.

Sure but what do I do with the fact that I use diabeti-sweet brown that is no longer made? Can you help me with that?

How much black strap would one add if using something like swerve to make brown sugar if you use 2 tablespoons of swerve? I do not have any swerve but do have ideal.

I would use 1/4 tsp molasses. :)
