Keto Boston Cream Donut

Do you have a favorite donut? Is it the same as your favorite KETO donut? I am lucky that my favorite donut is a Boston cream donut and this keto Boston cream donut makes sure that I am not lacking when that craving hits.

My hubby begs me to make these keto Boston cream donuts as well as my keto Boston cream pie. ALL THE TIME! I don’t mind because, well, they are both amazing.

What is a Boston Cream Donut?

First and foremost – what is a Boston cream donut? A Bostom Cream Donut is generally a round, solid donut with a cream center and delicious chocolate frosting.

Basically, imagine a Keto Boston Cream Pie (recipe here) in donut form. YES PLEASE!

How to Make Keto Boston Cream Donuts

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a mixing bowl, combine the ingredients for the donuts, and blend on high until well combined.

Slightly wet your hands, and form the dough into 5 even sized balls.

Flatten the balls into solid donut shapes without the holes in the center, and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until lightly browned and cooked through.

Let the donuts cool. Use a sturdy straw to poke a hole through the side and about ⅔ of the way through each donut, wiggle the straw around back and forth so that it creates a hole in the center of the donut that can be filled. Be careful not to go all of the way through to the other side of the donut.

Mix the ingredients for the filling together until soft to firm peaks are formed.

Pipe the filling into the center of each donut carefully.

Place the baking chips and coconut oil in a microwave safe bowl, and heat at 30 second intervals until completely melted and combined.

Dip the top of each donut into the chocolate glaze, and place back on a parchment lined baking sheet.

Place the donuts into the freezer to allow the chocolate to set for 15 minutes before serving.

Do Keto Boston Cream Donuts Need to be Refrigerated?

They certainly do! And luckily they taste amazing nice and chilled. I actually prefer to eat them cold and will often chill them before eating.

Most baked items need to be refrigerated and these are no different.

How Many Carbs in a Keto Boston Cream Donut?

There are about 7.5g net carbs in a keto Boston cream donut. They can easily fit into a healthy keto lifestyle. I probably wouldn’t eat them daily for breakfast, lunch and dinner. But on occasion, they are a tasty breakfast treat and can easily fit into your macros for the day!

How is a Boston Cream Donut Different than an Eclair?

They are quite similar actually. So similar, in fact, that they are often confused.

Let’s start with shape. The eclair is generally a rectangle or oblong shape and a Boston cream donut is usually round.

Now, the center filling. Both have a cream filling, but the cream in the Boston cream donut is usually more creamy and thick and the eclair is more fluffy and whipped.

Lastly, the chocolate topping. I would say that this is the wildcard where they can be different or the same. Chocolate frosting is chocolate frosting!
