I have said it a million times, but I will say it again: I could eat a breakfast of bacon and eggs almost every day and die a very happy woman. On the rare occasion when I want something else - it's usually some type of carby cinnamon baked good.
Something about cinnamon in the morning is so comforting and satisfying. Unfortunately, most of the usual options are far from keto friendly and even the low carb options are super high in calories.
One of my old favorite (and definitely NOT keto) breakfasts, was warm cinnamon swirl bread with butter. So good and yet so simple, plus I love that it's not too sweet. Even before I went keto, too much sweet in the morning made me feel icky all day long.
This recipe for keto cinnamon swirl bread, brings all the cinnamon goodness of traditional cinnamon bread minus the carbs and added sugar.
The texture is a little bit more cake like then a traditional bread, but I was so happy with the taste that I decided to leave well enough alone. As I mentioned, I prefer my cinnamon bread on the less sweet side - but you can certainly increase the stevia to make it sweet enough for your preference.
On the topic of sweeteners, I MUCH prefer using confectioners erythritol in most recipes, including this one. I feel it prevents some of the graininess that comes with using granular erythritol. You can purchase ready made confectioners erythritol HERE or you can just do what I did and pulse granular erythritol in a food processor. THIS is the erythritol I used for this recipe and it worked great plus it's cheaper per ounce then the premade confectioners.
I have to admit that when I was making this, I really DID NOT expect it to turn out as well as it did, so I have zero pictures of the baking process. As soon as I make it again I will update this post with pics!
