Baked Keto Donut (Cinnamon donut)
Just one try of my Mad Creations Spiced Baked Keto Donut and you will be hooked!
I had a great baked donut recipe, that I converted to gluten free. The GF version is even better than the original. So I thought I would give it a crack to make a baked keto donut.
Lighter in texture than the donuts I had made in the past. These are a ridiculous 1g of carbs per donut! I mean like seriously that is a joke. You could eat them all and still be under your 20g carbs per day! Talk about a Keto donut dozen lol!
I will be totally honest when I say you and any of your unassuming friends would swear that these were not only fried but taste just like a normal donut. Which looking at this recipe you know full well that this is just not the case. The ultimate keto baked donut!
This grain free donut is made mostly with ingredients we all have in our keto pantry.
- Almond meal
- Whey protein isolate – this gives it structure and a crisp outer shell
- Sweeteners – I like to use Sukrin:1 for this recipe because it has no aftertaste. Be careful what you use in the cinnamon sugar as the sweeteners with a string cooling affect or bitter flavour will over power the donut.
- Xanthan gum – adds structure to the donut and should not be left out.
- Baking powder and baking soda – I use Bobs Red Mill Baking Powder; it is a double acting that helps to give a better rise and light and fluffy texture to baked goods. Baking soda for the Aussies is also your regular bi-carb soda.
