This keto cinnamon bread is easy to make. It’s the perfect Christmas breakfast. You can also gift this bread to friends, family, or coworkers.

This cinnamon bread is moist and loaded with flavor. You can slather it with softened butter and eat it for breakfast or as a snack in the afternoon.
Tips For Making Keto Cinnamon Bread
All the ingredients for this cinnamon keto bread must be at room temperature. If the ingredients are cold, it could cause the coconut oil to solidify.
The goal is to blend the coconut oil into the wet ingredients. It should be emulsified without clumps of coconut oil running throughout the bread.
The clumps of coconut oil will melt as the bread is in the oven, creating pockets of air in your cinnamon bread. Pockets of air are beneficial for foods such as biscuits. However, air pockets will impair the final product since this is a quick bread.
You can also substitute butter in place of coconut oil. You won’t have to worry about the coconut oil solidifying in the batter.
Most baking recipes contain larger amounts of other gluten-free flours. But when it comes to coconut flour, the amount is always small.
Coconut flour is extremely absorbent. So, the batter has to rest so it can soak up some of the moisture.
Let the keto cinnamon bread rest for 3-5 minutes. Letting the keto cinnamon batter rest allows the coconut flour to absorb the wet ingredients. Additionally, it will improve the texture of your cinnamon bread.
