  • 1 large egg white


  • 1/3 cup Sugar Twin Brown Sweetener
  • 1/3 cup Walden farms Maple walnut Syrup

Instructions to make the dough

  • Using a sieve, sift the Carbalose Flour into a large mixing bowl.
  • Add the yeast to the Carbalose flour and mix it in.
  • In a small sieve, press the cottage cheese, draining the liquid from the cheese.
  • In a small saucepan, combine the pressed cottage cheese, skim milk, granulated sweetener, oil and salt.
  • Heat on medium heat, until warm (120° -130°F or 48°to °C)
  • Remove from heat and add to the flour mixture.
  • Add the beaten egg and egg white.
  • Mix on high speed with an electric mixer. (use a dough hook attachment if you have one available)
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface.
  • Knead for about 5 to 8 minutes, until the dough is smooth.
  • Form the dough into a ball.
  • Lightly grease a large mixing bowl, using a bit of canola oil.
  • Place the dough ball into the bowl and cover with plastic wrap.
  • Place in a warm place and let rise for about an hour. (dough should appear almost double in size)


  • In a small mixing bowl, combine, sweetener, Walden farms syrup, and ground cinnamon.
  • Mix well.


  • Remove the risen dough from the mixing bowl and punch down.
  • Let the dough rest for about 8 to 10 minutes, covered in a lightweight linen towel.
  • Roll the dough out into a rectangle (approximately 8" by 14" in size)
  • Spread the filling mixture over the dough, using a brush to get it to the edges.
  • Sprinkle the chopped pecans over the filling.
  • Starting at the long side, roll up carefully (like a jelly roll)
  • Once rolled up, place it on a cutting board, seam side down.
  • Mark with a knife and cut into 10 even sized slices.
  • Spray the pie plate with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Place the cut slices on the pie plate an even distance apart. (usually about 3/4 inch apart)
  • Cover with a linen towel and let rise in a warm place for about 45 minutes or up to an hour.
  • While the buns are rising, preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C)
  • Brush rolls with skim milk (about 1 tsp) before placing them in the oven.
  • Bake in the center of the oven for approximately 20 minutes. (may take 25)
  • When rolls are lightly golden, remove and allow to cool while still in the pie plate.
  • *To check for doneness, insert a clean toothpick into the dough. When it comes out clean, they are baked
  • Glaze with Sugar Free Glaze if desired.


*If you are unable to obtain Carbalose flour, you can use King Arthur Keto Flour
