Low carb Cinnamon Dippers are so yummy, and perfect for keeping your holiday appetizers low carb and your waistline trim. It’s also the answer to Kathryn’s request for a good alternative to enjoying this low carb cookie dough dip recipe.
The Cinnamon Dippers are a Fuel Pull on the Trim Healthy Mama plan, which means that you can enjoy a nice stash of these with S, E, or Fuel Pull toppings. How’s that for versatile! And my very favorite part is how easy these are to make.
I start with 2-3 Joseph’s Lavash breads, or Aldi’s low carb flatbreads, and cut them into a nice dipping strip shape with a sharp knife. Lay them out on a pan, and brush with a tiny bit of melted butter.
We like our cinnamon-sugar [free] mix to be pretty cinnamon-y, so I do about a half and half mix. If you enjoy it sweeter, try 2 T. of erythritol, xylitol, Truvia, or sugar free sweetener of your choice to a salt shaker, and add about a T of cinnamon. Shake to blend, and then top your dipping strips with the mix.
I baked these at 350* for about 8 minutes to get a nice golden brown and crispy chip.
Perfect for doing this…
This is just a vehicle for all manner of deliciousness! You should try these today…

And print this:
- 2-3 low carb lavash or flatbreads*
- 1 tsp. melted butter
- 2 Tbs. erythritol, xylitol, or Truvia from the canister
- 1-2 Tbs. ground cinnamon
- Cut each flatbread into 16 pieces with a sharp knife by cutting into 4 equal strips, and then cut each strip into 4 equal pieces. You may stack the flatbread up and cut them all at once to save time.
- Lay crisps out on a baking sheet, and preheat the oven to 350*
- Brush crisps with a very small amount of melted butter to help the sugar [free] cinnamon mix stick.
- Blend cinnamon and sugar, adjusting the ratio to your liking. I like to blend them in a salt shaker or spice jar.
- Coat the crisps in a nice layer of cinnamon-'sugar'
- Bake for 8-10 minutes, until a nice golden brown. They will continue to crisp up as they cool.
- Dip and enjoy!
