Are Donuts Keto-Friendly?

Regular donuts are not keto-friendly because they are made with wheat flour and sugar, then fried until golden. Just one cinnamon donut from Dunkin Donuts has over 30 grams of carbohydrates and 13 grams of sugar. This is likely to kick you out of ketosis. 

Luckily, you can make keto almond flour donuts at home that contain no sugar, grains, or other funky ingredients.

Keto Donuts Ingerdients

You will need only a few low carb ingredients that are extremely easy to find to make these delicious almond flour donuts. Here is everything you will need:

  • Almond Flour – Use almond flour, not almond meal. That extra-fine texture of almond flour makes it ideal for these donuts.
  • Sweetener – use your favorite sugar replacement. Our favorites are erythritol, allulose, and monk fruit sweetener.
  • Baking Powder – Helps the donuts to rinse beautifully. Ensure that it is fresh.
  • Eggs – make sure that the eggs are at room temperature.
  • Almond Milk – you can also use coconut milk.
  • Vanilla Extract – make sure that you are using the best quality that you find.

How To Make Keto Donuts

Once you see how easy it is to make keto donuts with almond flour, you will never want to get the regular ones. This recipe can’t get any easier:

  1. Start by mixing all the dry ingredients until there are no lumps. 
  2. Then add the wet ones and mix until well combined.
  3. Brush your donuts tray with melted butter or spray it with coconut oil. Then fill each donut-shaped cup with batter.
  4. Bake your donut in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  5. Let your donuts cool, then glaze them in your favorite way.

Tips For Making The Best Keto Doughnuts 

  • If you don’t want to end up with donuts that taste eggy, make sure you use room-temperature eggs.
  • Use the middle oven rack when baking your donuts to guarantee a uniform bake and golden-brown tops.
  • To pour the batter into the donut pan, you can transfer the batter to a ziplock bag and snip a corner off. You can also use a piping bag. 
  • Frost the donuts when they are completely cool, or else the frosting will melt in contact with the warm donuts.

Recipe Variations

  • Add 1 teaspoon cinnamon to the batter and make the best keto cinnamon donuts.
  • Before baking, incorporate a few sugar-free chocolate chips into the mixture or doughnut pan.
  • If you are a fan of berries, then add your favorite ones into the batter to make delicious blueberry donuts.
  • For my lemon fans, mix lemon juice and lemon zest in the batter.
