Since going full on Keto, I’ve been doing a lot of experimenting in the kitchen. Thanks to Pinterest I have lots of inspiration!
This morning I woke up craving donuts. I actually don’t usually like sugar in the mornings but sometimes it’s a must! I took a stroll through Pinterest and found a Keto Donut recipe! Thanks to Low Carb Joy I was able to satisfy my donut craving.
I would personally make a few changes the next time I make them. I’ll add one less egg as the dough was a big more eggy for my liking. Potentially will try 3 eggs and 1 egg yolk. I would also sweeten it a touch more. One thing I tried but didn’t like was frying the donut. I felt it soaked up the oil and gave a strange texture.
- 1/3 cup Coconut Flour
- 3 tbsp . Swerve swetener (more if you like a sweeter donut)
- 1/2 tsp Nutmeg (optional)
- 1/8 th (pinch) tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/8 th tsp (pinch) Glucomannan / Konjac Powder (optional but will help thicken)
- 2 tbsp Coconut Oil , melted and cooled
- 4 large Egg , Whole
- 1/4 cup Almond Milk (unsweetened)
- 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
- Coconut oil for frying
- Granulated Swerve and Cinnamon for coating (optional)
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease donut pan
In a mixing bowl, stir together coconut flour,swerve sweetener, salt, baking soda, nutmeg (opt).
In separate bowl stir together the eggs, almond milk, coconut oil and vanilla.
Sprinkle the konjac over the egg mixture and stir to dissolve.
Add the Egg mixture to the coconut flour mixture and stir till batter is smooth and thick.
Add batter to donut well.
Bake for 8 minutes, if frying. Bake for 10-12 mins for cake donuts. Allow to cool slightly and dump out of pan. If not frying, donuts are ready for cinnamon sweetener.
In small skillet heat about 1/4 inch, oil till hot, but not smoking. Carefully slide prepared donuts into hot oil and allow to cook just till underside is golden 10-30 seconds depending on oil temperature. Then carefully turn over each donut with a fork and repeat. Remove with a slotted spoon to paper towels to drain. Coat with powdered sugar, if desired.
