Tis the season for cinnamon on just about everything. Despite the chili, this Cinnamon Chili Keto Roast isn’t spicy, but it does smell and taste like the holidays. You won’t even need potpourri when this roast is in your oven.



  • 6 lb. rump roast (1/2 pound per person you want to serve)
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1/4 tsp. allspice
  • 1/4 tsp. ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. In a bowl, combine all ingredients.
  3. Rub your roast all over, from top to bottom.
  4. In a medium skillet, add olive oil and heat to medium-high heat.
  5. When the skillet is hot, sear the roast on all sides to lock in the juices.
