Keto Chocolate Donuts

When my kids ask for donuts, I want to have the BEST option available to make so that they don’t resort back to asking for the “real” (aka fake) sugary donuts.

This keto chocolate donut recipe is just that!

I don’t have to worry about storing any leftovers because they get gobbled up so quickly.

The donut is a fluffy, yet cakey, donut. The best of both worlds. And the frosting is a perfectly thick glaze that coats to perfection.

How To Make Keto Chocolate Donuts

Donuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease donut molds with oil of your choice (I like coconut oil). I would suggest coconut oil, however, as I’ve made this with other oils and they tend to stick more.

In a large bowl, mix together almond flour, cocoa, monkfruit, baking powder, and salt until well combined.

Add melted butter and mix until crumbly (about 10 seconds). Let it sit for a few minutes to cool down the butter.

In a small bowl, beat together egg and vanilla.

Add egg mixture to almond flour mixture, and mix well.

Add mixture equally to donut molds. Fill about 1/2-3/4 way. It should make around 9.

Bake for 16 minutes or until the center passes the toothpick test. Let cool.

Once cool, flip onto a wire rack or plate of choice. They should come out pretty easily. If you used silicone molds like I did, then you just pull the mold sides out slightly, and they slide right out!

Frosting

Mix all ingredients in a small bowl that is wide enough to dip.

Carefully hold donut upside down and dip into the frosting. Twist a little and then flip right side up and shake it a little so any bumps or air bubbles settle.

How Many Carbs in Each Keto Chocolate Donut?

I am happy to report that there is only 2 net carbs in these delicious low carb, gluten free and mouth watering chocolate donuts!

And that INCLUDES the chocolate glaze!

It sure beats 50g of carbs you might find in a traditional, non keto chocolate donut!

Now, if you want to indulge a bit and raise your carb ceiling for a day, I highly recommend these Gluten Free Chocolate Donuts. Not keto, but still amazingly low carb (8g net carbs) and can fit many people’s macros! A super tasty treat!

What Can I Eat For Breakfast on the Keto Diet?

Besides donuts, you mean? While these keto chocolate dontus are lovely to have on occasion, I don’t think I’d eat them daily.

Instead, what about…..

Keto Sausage Egg Bake

Ham and Cheese Cloud Eggs

Spiced Breakfast Cauliflower Fritters

Corned Beef Hash

Zucchini Pancakes

Keto Eggs Benedict Casserole

All good and delicious choices!

Keto Chocolate Donut Kitchen Essentials

First and foremost, you need a donut mold. I bought these ones from Amazon and absolutely love them.

They are silicone and it makes getting the donuts our SUPER easy. Just pull the sides out a bit, flip over and out they come!

Other than than, you’ll just need your standard mixing bowls and utensils!

Sweeteners

Lakanto monkfruiterythritol and liquid stevia are my favorite sweeteners to use.  I often use liquid stevia in combination with the other two to temper out any after taste that may occur. 

I chose to use monkfruit for this recipe.  You can use erythritol as well if you have that.  And I didn’t find that it needed the liquid stevia balance. If you find that you experience the cooling effect of erythritol, then feel free to add a few drops.

Now, in the frosting, I use Lakanto golden monkfruit.    It gives it an extra special flavor, but you can certainly sub it with classic monkfruit or erythritol if you don’t have the golden!
