Living in Florida, Dylan and I love to go to Disney! When we have some free time, we really enjoy being able to walk around the parks and soak up the atmosphere. There are three things that are great about Disney: the rides, the shows, and most of all, the food!  Other than a massive turkey leg, there is no other food that screams “theme park!!!” more than a soft pretzel.🎢🥨🤩

Other than tasting great, I think the best part about a soft pretzel is its smell! It’s always the smell that gets me when I walk by that stand that’s selling pretzels. Especially the cinnamon pretzels! But, since traditional soft pretzels are obviously not a part of our low carb lifestyle, we can no longer indulge in the goodness that is a soft pretzel. At least, not until now! 😉

I have always preferred cinnamon soft pretzels as opposed to the traditional. Don’t get me wrong, they’re both delicious, but nothing beats a warm, soft pretzel topped with cinnamon-sugar, dipped in a sweet cream cheese. And when I say nothing, I mean nothing.

Cream Cheese Dip Anyone!?

If you’re looking for an easy cream cheese dip for these, check out the cream frosting that we used to create our Chewy Keto Coconut Cookies. You could easily use this frosting as a dip for these pretzels!


Fat Head dough is the key to making any low carb “bread”, and these pretzels are no exception. Fat Head dough is used to make low carb pizza, bread, calzones, rolls, pigs in a blanket, and everything in between. The best part about Fat Head dough is that it’s suuupperr easy to make (oh, and that it tastes amazing!!). All you’ll need are a few ingredients I’m sure that you already have.

The key to Fat Head dough is mozzarella cheese. Mozzarella gives the dough its weight, texture and feel. I know, bread made out of mozzarella might sound sort of strange, but trust me, it is great!

How To Make These Keto Cinnamon Sugar Pretzels

Keto Cinnamon Pretzels Step-by-Step

  1. The first step in making these yummy pretzels is to create your Fat Head dough. To do this, place your mozzarella and cream cheese in a microwave safe bowl and microwave for 30 seconds.Then, stir the mixture and microwave again for another 30 seconds.
  2. After the cream cheese and mozzarella have melted, add in your beaten egg and almond flour.
  3. Mix together (may need to use your hands)
  4. Now that you’ve created your dough, separate it into five sections and begin to form your pretzels and then place them on a baking sheet. Tip: The easiest way to do this is to roll each portion of dough into one long cylinder. Then, with the dough, make a heart shape with a round bottom. Ta-da! Pretzels.    
  5. After you’ve shaped your pretzels, bake them at 350 degrees for about 15 minutes or until lightly brown.
  6. While your pretzels are baking, you’ll want to make your cinnamon glaze. To do this, first melt your coconut oil and butter in the microwave for about 15 seconds. Then, in a separate bowl, mix together your sweetener and cinnamon.
  7. After your pretzels have come out of the oven and have cooled for a couple of minutes, brush them with the coconut and butter and dip coat them in cinnamon and sweetener.
  8. Finally, the end result.. a delicious cinnamon sugar pretzel.. Keto style!


These are a super quick and easy snack! Make these for a party, a movie night in, or just to have on hand when you want something to snack on! Just because you’re trying to stay low carb doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy everyone’s favorite snack, soft pretzels! And don’t forget to check out the frosting that we used for our Chewy Keto Coconut Cookies, it would make the perfect dip for these! 🙌😍

  • I would have never guessed about the mozzarella! What a fun twist (pun intended!), and I adore anything with cinnamon. Yum!

  • Easy and delicious. This was the first time I have used Monkfruit sweetener. It’s the same texture as granulated sugar, but is slightly sweeter. It was perfect for this recipe. I can’t wait to make this in the fall.

    • Laurie, so happy to hear you enjoyed it too! That is one of the reasons why I LOVE Monk Fruit. Also the fact that there isn’t an aftertaste! Thanks for the review! – Kasey

  • Is there a strong coconut flavor with the oil? I HATE coconut more than anything and wanted to be sure before making. 🙂 If there’s a strong flavor, what else would you recommend using?

    • Hi Allison,
      There really isn’t much of a coconut taste with these. That was one of the things we loved about these! The coconut oil and butter mixture really just helps to stick the cinnamon sugar. 🙂 But, if you don’t want to take any chances, you could just use the melted butter instead!

  • This looks delish! Can this recipe be made as a ‘savory’ pretzel with perhaps salt and or pecorino cheese sprinkled on instead of cinnamon and sweetener?
