Low Carb, Sugar Free Pecan Cinnamon Rolls (from Dixie Carb Counters Pecan Sticky Buns Mix)

Over the years I've bought various products from Dixie Carb Counters and they've been hit or miss on whether or not we cared for them.  One of my purchases last year included a handful of their products I thought would be great to have on hand to 'throw together' when I didn't have the time or feel like making the effort to make something completely from scratch.  This included a 'crumb' mixture to use for pies or cheesecakes, a mix to use as a substitute for sweetened condensed milk, a thickener product, pecan sticky buns and a bunch of other items.

After I had two "eh" results with their crumb topping and another crumb product, as well as a "um, no" result from the so-called sweetened condensed milk substitute, I was burnt out on their products and didn't want to try anymore for awhile so this package of Pecan Sticky Buns sat on the shelf, ignored, for months and months and months.  And then, out of the blue a few weeks ago, I decided to make these for my husband for breakfast one weekend.  And?  They were awesome!
I bought my mix from a big order I placed with Netrition - I am not sure that Amazon has them but I will link to a bunch of their product options at that bottom of this post if you want to browse - they make everything from bread and pretzels to desserts, thickeners, baked desserts and more.

You get 10 cinnamon rolls from each package and each roll is 2 net carbs - if you are counting.  The little cinnamon goodies are a bit more crumbly than traditional wheat flour based rolls of course, and don't brown up or get that crust a regular bread product gets when baked.  But one or two of these with a cup of coffee on a chilly morning was perfect and perfectly delicious!  We had them Saturday and Sunday mornings and my husband grabbed the last 3 rolls to take with him for 'breakfast in the car' on his way to work that Monday morning.

This product got a big thumbs up from both of us - for flavor of course, but also from me because it's an easy to throw together package mix I just need some cream, water, an egg and a little butter to make.  Quick and easy.

 See the cinnamon swirl of yumminess inside the roll.  Texture is more crumbly than a wheat based - but who cares?  Not us.  So good with coffee.
