Keto Donuts – the perfect low carb donuts to curb that classic cinnamon sugar donut craving. Best of all, this easy recipe comes together quickly for a healthy breakfast treat. Paleo, sugar free, grain free and gluten free.
Cinnamon Sugar Donuts are probably one of the most popular treats everyone loves at the local carnival or fair. How can you go wrong with a deep-fried donut that’s soft and pillowy covered in a crunchy cinnamon and sugar coating?
These Keto donuts have those same classic flavors everyone loves about those mini doughnuts using much more wholesome ingredients instead. Plus, they’re deliciously moist, spongy and baked instead of fried.
You can enjoy one for breakfast, dessert or anytime you’re have that donut craving without having to head out to Krispy Kreme or Dunkin Donuts. This recipe makes a batch of 12 mini donuts or 6 regular sized donuts. And if you don’t have a donut pan, divide the donut batter in a mini muffin tin for some Keto donut holes which would be just as delicious.
They’re deliciously moist, spongy and come together easily without having to pull out a stand mixer. Plus, they’re paleo, grain free, gluten free and sugar free.
Instead, I sweetened these sugar free donuts with granulated monkfruit sweetener. Monkfruit sweetener works great for anyone who’s diabetic and limiting their sugar intake, or anyone that wants a low carb or paleo donut.
If you can’t find monkfruit sweetener, you can also try substituting with SWERVE or erythritol if not strict paleo.
These gluten free donuts are made with much healthier ingredients than your typical store-bought donuts. Instead of granulated sugar, they are made with monkfruit sweetener, almond flour and coconut flour and will not cause a spike in your glucose level.
