TIPS FOR MAKING THE BEST KETO DONUTS
Pretty easy to make. Pretty straightforward and simple. Here are some of my tips for the best results
Use a non-stick donut pan.
With non-stick spray, grease the pan well.
In the pan, let the donuts cool, and once they are cool, remove them. When warm, gluten-free and Keto baked goods tend to be fragile. But, as they cool, they will firm up.

Make the donuts:
- Whisk together the sweetener, almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, salt, xanthan gum, and cocoa in a medium bowl. Put it aside.

- Into the donut cavities, spoon the batter, filling 3 ∕ 4 of the way full.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes.
Make the glaze:
- Stir together the cocoa powder, sweetener, and melted butter in a small bowl. To create a “pourable” consistency, stir in 2 tbsp heavy cream. With more heavy cream, adjust the consistency as necessary.
Top the donuts:
- Either in the bowl of glaze, dip the top halves of the donuts, or over the top of the donuts, drizzle the glaze.
