A sweet and tender cinnamon loaf is the perfect accompaniment to a hot cup of coffee on a cool day!
A THM S, this cinnamon loaf is also keto-friendly, low-carb, gluten-free, and can even be made dairy-free if you leave off the cream cheese frosting and use coconut oil instead of butter in the loaf.
You don’t need any special ingredients to make this cinnamon loaf:
- butter (or coconut oil)
- unsweetened almond butter (I got mine for a great price at Costco)
- sweetener (I used xylitol, but you could use Gentle Sweet in half the amount of Super Sweet in a quarter of the amount)
- vanilla extract
- almond flour
- golden flaxseed meal
- baking soda
- mineral salt
- cream cheese
- Swerve icing sugar
A streusel-like topping is baked on top of the cinnamon loaf, and then drizzled in a cream cheese frosting – truly a treat for the senses! You could leave the frosting off if you want, but I think it takes the cinnamon loaf from good to great!
I used a stone loaf pan to bake my cinnamon loaf and needed to bake it for 1 hour and 10 minutes before it was done. I decreased the time in the recipe to an hour because most people use a tin loaf pan which bakes goods a little quicker than stone. Just be sure to watch your cinnamon loaf as it’s baking. A good rule of thumb is to start checking for doneness when you start smelling that cozy aroma in the kitchen. 🙂

I tried this tonight and I noticed that mine turned out much drier than your picture. I baked it for less time than suggested and it still turned out dry. It still tastes ok but yours looks much tastier. Any suggestions? Only thing I did differently was use regular ground flax instead of golden. Would that be the difference? I am still going to enjoy this very much with a cup of tea in the morning. Thanks!
Hi Jacinda! What suggestions do you have for substituting almond butter? I have tried peanut butter in similar recipes and it ended up tasting too peanut buttery instead of the flavor it should have tasted… could I use blended cottage cheese instead? I just don’t keep almond butter on hand.
Am wondering the same thing… I used the peanut butter in place of almond in the brownies and it worked fine, but am thinking not the case with this one….
