Keto Double Chocolate Cake Donuts


Keto Double Chocolate Donuts

******* UPDATED 2/9 – NEW RECIPE! *****

I have a donut maker but it is hit or miss in terms of the donuts sticking.  I don’t know why I can’t seem to get it right!

So I bought these fun donut molds on Amazon and wanted to give them a spin!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM!

I really wanted to make more of a cake donut vs a fluffy version like my Keto Cinnamon Donut Bites.  The goal was fir them to be a bit denser, but still have a smidge of fluff.

Donuts are one of those things that I know my kids miss.  On occasion, I’ll still let them get a sugar filled, full gluten donut from the bakery.  My avoidance of them (for my kids) isn’t due to keto, it is due to the gluten.

We got some snow last night which is rare for Portland, so I decided to make a fun breakfast for the kiddos.  Now, “breakfast” was served at noon because I have 4 teenagers.  

I get up at 5 am usually but today I decided to sleep in.  Guess what time my 5-year-old got up?  4:59 am.  So much for sleeping in.  Needless to say, I had a long time before “breakfast”.

The dough will be quite thick.  It will not be pourable.  Think of it more likes scoopable.

And let me be the first to tell you that your molds will not look pretty.  DO NOT LET THAT GET YOU DOWN.  Your donuts will be beautiful despite the fact that you got gobs here and there.


Even when you pull them out of the oven, they might look underwhelming.  But remember, you are looking at the underside.  Just look at mine for an example:

Now, moments after taking the above picture, I flipped them onto a cooling rack and check out how beautiful they are!

Perfection!  RIGHT?

Kitchen Essentials

Donut molds – You will definitely need some fun donut molds like these.  You could try your donut maker if you have one, but I cannot guarantee how they will turn out since I have not tried them using one.  Oven baked in molds?  Yes, they are beautiful!

Other than that – nothing fancy is needed!


Here is where we need to talk.  Lakanto monkfruit, erythritol 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. 

Now, in the frosting, I use Lakanto BROWN monkfruit.  I *think* you could substitute the white version.  I haven’t’ tried it, but with a general understanding of flavors, it should still be good!

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Grease baking sheet with oil of your choice (I like coconut oil).
  3. In a large bowl, mix together almond flour, cocoa, monkfruit, baking powder, and salt 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 liquid stevia.
  6. Add egg mixture to almond flour mixture, and mix well.
  7. Add mixture equally to donut molds. Fill about 1/2 way. It should make around 9.
  8. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until center passes toothpick test.
  9. Let cool.
  10. Once cool, flip onto a wire rack or plate of choice. They should come out pretty easy. If you used silicone molds like I did, then you just pull the mold sides out slightly, and they slide right out!


  1. Mix all ingredients in a small bowl and let sit for a few minutes to thicken if needed.
  2. Glaze donuts.
  3. Serve and enjoy!
