Keto Cinnamon Donut Bites

**** UPDATED 6/26  ****

Do ever want some donuts for breakfast?  What about breakfast for dinner?  Either way, these Keto Cinnamon Donut Bites are Da Bomb!  No joke!

I’ve tried keto donuts before and they are just TOO MUCH for me.  Well, except my keto double chocolate donuts – those rock!  Most other keto donuts taste good, but after the first few bits, I just can’t take anymore.  So keto cinnamon donut bites seemed like just the thing to create!

A fond memory I have from childhood is my mom and dad making homemade donuts Chrimstas morning.  I called my mom and asked for her special homemade recipe so I could keto-ize it.  And I did just that.

I did more than keto-ize it though as I changed it quite a bit, but the base flavor still reminds me of home.

The first batch was AMAZING!  I tested them, took my pictures, put them all on a plate, walked out of the room, came back and they were gone.

GONE.

My dog had eaten them all before I could have anyone else taste them.  Sigh…  It’s a good thing they are easy to make so I whipped up another batch!

Now I know they don’t look like your traditional donut holes.  I made them before and put them in molds and they stuck to the molds.  So instead, I made balls.

And of course, the balls spread out a bit and all is good!  They are more like donut hole patties!

Kitchen Essentials

Baking Sheet – Just a regular baking sheet or two will do!  I had to use 2.

Frying pan – These kind are great because they are nice a deep and prevent some of the splatter from the coconut oil.

Sweetener

I chose to use monkfuit for this recipe.  Erythritol and monkfuit are my favorites!  You can often go back and forth between the two depending on which one you like the best.

Monkfuit and cinnamon together make for a beautiful blend with these donuts.

Pro Tip

If you want them to have that deep fried donut taste you have the option to fry them in coconut oil instead of painting coconut oil on.

You simply need to put about 1/2 cup coconut oil in a small saucepan and fry both sides (see below).

BUT, they need to be fully cooled and set before doing this or they may fall apart if you throw them in there warm.

The Perfect Frying Time and Temp

Here is what I concluded with trial and error.  Heat the coconut oil over medium heat.  Once it is hot, put no more than 3 in the pan and cook 5 seconds per side.  THAT IS IT.

I mean, I suppose you could put more in per time, but I couldn’t flip them fast enough when I had more than 3.  It will go fast since it is only 10 seconds per “round”!

Be careful when taking them in and out of the coconut oil.  They will be soft and you could accidentally smash them!

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

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

5. In a small bowl, beat together egg, vanilla, and heavy whipping cream.  

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

7. Dough will be sticky. Refrigerate for 10 minutes if desired to decrease stickiness. 

8. Roll dough into 1 inch round balls and place on a prepared baking sheet. 

9. Baking for 12-15 minutes. 

10. Meanwhile, mix together ingredients monkfruit and cinnamon for topping and set aside.

    1. Since they are donut bites, it just gives them that slightly crispy (yes not crispy) outer edge that you would expect from a donut. You can totally eat them right out of the oven. I certainly did as I was frying some of the other ones!

  1. These are good. They have a texture similar to cake donuts and really scratch that baked goods itch. I added 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg to see if I could get these to taste like my grandma’s donuts and they had a similar flavor. I used melted butter instead of coconut oil on top. Next time I am going to experiment with adding a couple Tbs of ground golden flaxseed.
    I will share tonight’s batch with a diabetic friend who doesn’t get many sweets and will be able to enjoy a couple donut bites without breaking his carb bank. I will be making these again. Thanks.

  2. The little buns didn’t stretch as much as i thought they would, but the taste was amazing!! Loved the recipe!! Thanks for sharing!

  3. I used swerve in place of the monk fruit and added a little psyllium husk powder to the mix. They held their donut hole shape perfectly. The only problem is I didn’t make enough! I’ll double the batch next time.

  4. Good morning! I made these this morning and fried them in my air fryer. They were delicious! I followed another poster’s advice and added 1TB of psyllium husk. Btw, in looking at the recipe, some how I couldn’t see how much sweetener to add to the batter, so I used 1 1/2 TB of golden monk fruit. Hubby loved that they weren’t really sweet.
