Step 1 In a mixing bowl, combine the eggs, melted butter, milk, 3 tsp. of vanilla extract, and vinegar. Whisk thoroughly and set aside. Step 2 In another mixing bowl, combine coconut and almond flour, baking powder, xanthan gum, stevia, psyllium husk powder, flaxseed powder, and salt. Mix well until there are no lumps in the dough. Step 3 Combine the contents of two bowls and mix until the dough thickens, then set it aside to rest. Step 4 Make the cinnamon filling: Combine and mix well 4 tbsp. of melted butter with the granulated stevia, almond extract, and cinnamon. Then set aside. Step 5 Put the dough onto a sheets of baking paper and press the dough down into a rough disk with your hands. Step 6 Place another sheet of baking paper on top of the dough and roll out the dough to an even thickness, then remove the top sheet of baking paper. Step 7 Now spread the cinnamon filling over the dough. Make sure to leave approximately a 1” border at the long edge of the dough. Step 8 Use the sheet of baking paper to carefully roll the dough into the shape of a log. After that, add several drops of water to the edge of the dough not covered with the filling and finish rolling the dough roll to seal it. Step 9 Cut the dough roll into 8-10 slices. Grease a round or square baking dish and put the slices of dough on it. Make sure to place the slices of dough on their sides. Step 10 Preheat oven to 350 F. Put the baking dish in the oven and bake for about 20 minutes, then cover the baking dish with aluminum foil and bake for 5-7 more minutes. Step 11 Prepare the glaze: Combine the cream cheese, butter, vanilla extract, and powdered sweetener in a mixing bowl. Mix well using a hand mixer until the glaze is creamy and a bit fluffy. You can make the glaze while cinnamon rolls are baking. Step 12 Take the cinnamon rolls out of the oven and let them cool for at about 20 minutes. Then add the glaze. Serve and enjoy!
