Whether you spell it ‘Donut’ or ‘Doughnut’ – these will rock your World! Read on to find out how to make the BEST Keto Doughnuts

Before eating Keto, doughnuts were not something I would have chosen to eat – shocking I know!

Doughnuts always seemed so plain in comparison to some of the other cakey goodness out there.

Now, these low-carb doughnuts are a firm favourite in my kitchen. The true testament to this is my friend’s daughter who would eat a full tray of these if I let her. She has never twigged that they are sugar-free and low-carb!

Are doughnuts high in carbs?

Check out the nutritional information on these Krispy Cream doughnuts, they have an average of around 50 grams of carbs per doughnut. These are always hanging around the office – but now I have low-carb doughnuts in my life, they’re really not tempting!

Suffice to say at 50 grams of carbs per doughnut, these are not suitable for a Keto, Low-carb or sugar-free lifestyle they are also grain-free too before we ever start to look at the ingredients!

So what are keto doughnuts made of?

These light and fluffy gorgeous keto doughnuts are made from almond flour and almond milk.

Almond flour on a keto lifestyle

The most popular and keto flour used by those following a keto/low-carb lifestyle by far is almond flour.  A 100 g of almond flour contains 14 grams of fat 6 g of protein and only 10 g of carbs making it a good flour substitutes for a Keto lifestyle. 

Almond flour is made from finely ground almonds, with their skins removed.  In the UK almond flour can be found in most supermarkets.  However, I have found that it can be quite expensive within the supermarkets and it can be found cheaper online especially but when bought in bulk.

Where to buy almond flour in the UK?

If you are shopping in the supermarket I have found that Aldi sell reasonably priced almond flour.  It is in the home baking section (normally near the eggs) and it is priced around £1.25 for 150 g, this is one of the cheapest I have found on the high street. 

Occasionally there will be offers in the main supermarket chains on Whitworths ground almonds.  At the normal price, these are normally quite expensive, however, occasionally they will go on offer at three for £3.00, this is the perfect time to clear out the shelves and stock up your store cupboard!

The cheapest places to buy almond flour online in the UK

If you don’t have time to wait for offers in the supermarket, these RealFoodSource almond flours are the best I have found on the Internet.  They can be bought in 1, 2, 4 or 5 KG bags and are a lot cheaper than buying in the supermarket.  This is personally what I use as there are not only cheap, but they are by far the best I have found out there.  Trust me there has been a lot of trial and error over the years!

If you are looking to make nut-free keto doughnuts I can highly recommend using sunflower seed flour. I have tried using coconut flour alone to make these keto doughnuts, but don’t waste your time – it really doesn’t work!

My friend (who is nut-free) has kindly, high-recommended this recipe from Real Balanced – it uses a combination of sunflower seed flour and coconut flour to make keto doughnuts.

What are almond flour Keto Doughnuts like?

Would it be too dramatic to say AMAZING?!

I wouldn’t have expected that sugar-free doughnuts would have been all that. These really are decadent. The almond flour gives these keto doughnuts a lovely sweet taste.

They do have a more ‘cakey’ texture than regular doughnuts, but this makes them even better! I do find that regular doughnuts were all air and no real substance!

I would love to know how you thing these keto, low-carb doughnuts compare to their non-keto counterparts. Let me know in the comments below.  

What should I bake my Keto Doughnuts in?

Firstly, any of you that have followed me for any length of time, will know that I use a lot of silicone baking products.

I have tried baking these in my silicone doughnut mould and in the metal doughnut mould. This is the one time that metal wins!

The keto doughnuts came out from the pan easier and they have a slightly harder outside, meaning you get that ‘crunch’ when you bite into your low-carb doughnut.

My friend is the keto doughnut queen. She has three beautiful children that are all on a sugar-free diet, and they are regularly fed keto doughnuts.  She has a fancy doughnut-making machine that she uses – it does bigger doughnuts and those cute mini-ones, which are perfect for kids and guests!

I will find out the make of it and link it below in case anybody’s life is as dedicated to keto doughnuts as hers is!

Coating my Keto Doughnuts

I love the combination of erythritol (keto-friendly sugar) and cinnamon. Sometimes the most simple things are the best!

How long with my Low-Carb Doughnuts last?

Your low-carb doughnuts will be devoured in minutes!

Honestly, they will be! If you have any intention to store your keto doughnuts, these will last in an airtight container (I always recommend Lock & Lock for this) for 3-4 days.

Can I freeze my Keto Doughnuts?

If you’re wanting your sugar-free doughnut treats to last a bit longer, or you have friends coming around at the weekend, and you want these to last you can freeze these.

In order to freeze, layer your doughnuts in an airtight container (if it’s not airtight moisture will get into these and they will be soggy!). I would recommend putting silicone paper in between these so they don’t stick together.

Take these out a few hours before you want to eat them to allow your keto doughnuts to defrost. If you want you can pop these back into the oven to reheat them!

How many carbs are in Keto Doughnuts?

These keto, low-carb doughnuts work out at around 2 grams of carbs per doughnut. Compared to the shop-bought doughnuts above at 50 grams of carbs – THESE ARE AMAZING!!

They also easy to make!

When I have been doing one meal a day (OMAD) I have been tempted to have 10 of these in one sitting for my 20 grams of carbs! I’m not sure this would fit with the rest of my macros through!!
