Chocolate Cinnamon Keto Donuts

These keto donuts are flavoured with chocolate and cinnamon.  Baked with coconut flour they are a healthier alternative to store bought donuts.  

I love my hot chocolate sprinkled with cinnamon, so in this recipe put them together in a donut form.  Seems logical to me!  The husband voted these keto donuts as his favourite…although that may change with the next batch for him to test.   I love how moist these donuts are, and it’s a credit to the joys of coconut flour.  Along with the coconut oil and milk which are all wonderfully low carb for you. 

Did you know that there are on average about 22g net carbs in a store bought donut? That’s just over a low carb daily allowance!  Wow!   These donuts are just 5g net carbs each so you can enjoy them without the guilt.

You will need a donut tin to make these low carb donuts.   I have started using a silicone tin and just love it.  My metal one was getting a bit over used and the donuts had to be scraped out.  With a silicone tin they just pop out easily.  Although between you and me, when making the video for this recipe, I thought that I would show the keto donuts being removed from the tin.  Of course the first one stuck for the very first time!  So you don’t see me struggling to get a donut out nor hear the swearing!  The others popped out beautifully, but it’s why you only see 5 keto donuts in the photos too…

The melted cinnamon butter acts as a delicious glaze and gives you another layer of cinnamon taste.  They help keep the keto donut moist too when kept in the fridge.  Yes, the last batch survived the night under the hunger pangs of the Chief Taster so I can confirm that they store well in the fridge.

    Is it the full fat coconut milk (can) or a coconut beverage (box) that you use for the recipe?

    Hello! I made these tonight and they are SO tasty. I have a question – could I use this same recipe *without the cocoa powder* to make a vanilla donut, and add blueberries, chocolate chips, etc.? I’m not very good at baking, and not sure how it would affect the consistency to take out the cocoa powder! Thank you!

      Yes you could. You may not need the coconut milk though as that may make the mixture too moist. Leave it to the last minute to see that the batter is not too wet. Happy baking!

    These were absolutely amazing! I just finished making them for the second time. I opted to do a cocoa powder / erythritol / coconut glaze this time to up the chocolate factor. I’m going to be recommending these to all of my clients with a sweet tooth!

    Good texture, right light sweetness, surprisingly neither very eggy nor very coconutty, despite a lot of both ingredients, cooked in about the amount of time suggested in the recipe (I had the convection fan on, though); however, needs more chocolate flavor for me and I could probably handle additional cinnamon, despite not loving cinnamon with chocolate. Overall a plus, might need a tweak for chocolateness. Thank you for sharing.

      I’d dip them in melted chocolate if I wasn’t trying to keep the carbs down!
