Print Recipe




  • 3 tablespoons Cinnamon
  • 4 teaspoons Erythritol or sugar substitute of your choice


  • 2 oz Cream cheese softened
  • 2 teaspoons Vanilla essence
  • 2 tablespoons Coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon Ground erythritol or sugar substitute of your choice
  • 1 tablespoon Water optional, depending upon how thin you want your topping


  • Pre-heat the oven to 190C/385F degrees and grease your muffin tin.
  • Mix the coconut flour, psyllium powder, baking powder, salt and erythritol together.
  • Add the eggs, butter and coconut milk and blend together so it resembles breadcrumbs or a partial dough.
  • Add the boiling water, gradually, a bit at a time, until you have a dough consistency. (You may not need all the water so don't pour it all in at once).
  • Lay a piece of parchment paper on your kitchen surface.
  • Take a small handful of the dough and make a thick sausage shape. Place this on the parchment paper. Place another piece of parchment paper over the dough and gently roll into a long rectangle, about two inches wide.
  • Trim the edges to make them straight. Sprinkle with cinnamon and erythritol.
  • Using the bottom parchment paper, roll up the dough like a swiss roll.
  • Cut into half and place each "roll" in the muffin tin (or on parchment lined baking tin).
  • Repeat until all the dough is used.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden.
  • To make the topping, blend the cream cheese, vanilla essence and ground erythritol together.
  • Add the coconut oil, then add water to achieve the consistency you desire.
  • Either pipe or drizzle over your buns. Or smear like butter!
  • Eat and enjoy!
