Christmas Stollen – delicious low-carb fruit-studded rolls from Jessica Salman

Jessica Salman writes:  I’m German and Stollen is always part of my Christmas tradition. I didn’t want to miss out on it this year. I adapted the AWESOME Orange Rolls that were posted by Keto Made Simple into this stollen-inspired treat.  I made 8 rolls.

Orange Stollen


3 C shredded mozzarella
4 ozs cream cheese
2 beaten eggs
1 C almond flour
¼ C vital wheat gluten
¼ C oat fiber (THM brand)
1 Tbs baking powder
3 T Swerve or other sweetener
½ Tbs yeast (for taste)
1 tsp bitter almond extract
¼ tsp nutmeg
½ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp ginger
Pinch of salt
(Adjust spices to your liking)
1 C Finely chopped candied Moons Grove Farms citrus & ginger
2-4 Tbs dark rum
2 Tbs softened butter

¼ C softened butter
¼ C Heavy Whipping Cream
⅓ C – ½ C powdered Swerve
A few drops of vanilla or bitter almond


Put fruit and rum in microwave for 1 minute. Stir and let sit while you put the rest together.

Microwave mozzarella and cream cheese until you can mix them smoothly. Add in eggs, almond flour, vital wheat gluten, oat fiber, yeast, baking powder, yeast, bitter almond, nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and a pinch of salt. Knead together like crazy. Reheat mixture in microwave for 30 seconds if needed. Knead knead knead until smooth and then pat out a rectangle about ⅓-½ inch thick. Very thinly spread the softened butter over the rectangle and then evenly distribute the rum soaked fruit by sprinkling and moving around as needed. With a sharp knife, cut into 8 (or however many you want) long strips. Roll them up and put them in a sprayed glass or ceramic baking dish.

Bake 375 degrees for 22-25 minutes.

Mix icing ingredients together. Icing is SO personal, you might like it sweeter or thicker or runnier, etc. Adjust accordingly. I like to spread mine on the rolls when they are still warm so it flows all over and makes a thin “crust” when they cool. You can save your until they are totally cool and have a thicker “frosting.” Either way works.

These need to cool completely before they taste their best. Overnight is preferred.
