Keto Chocolate Donut Recipe

As the seasons shift from summer to fall I often get this overwhelming urge to “nest”.  Organize the kids clothes, tidy the junk drawer, clean my disaster of a garage and bake all. the. things!  There is just something about the cooler weather that prompts me to want to fire up the oven.  So the other day I whipped up a batch of these delish Keto Chocolate Donuts to fulfill my craving for a sweet treat AND nesting.

And guys, these Keto Chocolate Donuts are super easy to make!  The only special piece of equipment that you need is a donut baking form/pan.  You can find them at Walmart for cheap.  Mine has six spaces for batter and so make six donuts at a time.  My only tip is to grease the pan really well so that the donut slip out easier once they are baked.

I like to top each donut with a bit of chocolate icing made with cocoa, powdered stevia and a dash of heavy cream.

Directions:

  • In a medium bowl, combine first six ingredients.
  • Mix well until a soft dough forms.
  • Divide into six portions and spoon into a greased donut pan.
  • Use a spatula to press the dough evenly into each donut form.
  • Bake for 12 mins at 350.
  • Combine powdered sugar, cocoa and just enough cream to make a firm chocolate icing.
  • Use a butter knife to top each donut with icing.
  • Makes 6 donuts.

Keto Chocolate Donuts store really well in the freezer for up to three months… if you can save any of them for that long!  I like to have one with my morning coffee, oh my gosh it the perfect pairing I tell ya!

If you are not quite ready to commit to purchasing a donut baking form, not to worry!  You can totally use this batter to create a keto chocolate cake concoction.  Just measure out and spread the batter into an appropriately sized and greased cake pan.  I think an 8×8 pan should work.
