Ingredients for Making This Recipe
Here are the ingredients you need to make this recipe. Reference the recipe card at the bottom for exact measurements and the notes below for substitution ideas.

Here are the ingredients you'll need for the keto glaze:
Instructions for How to Make This Recipe
This is a step-by-step walkthrough of how to cook this recipe. The recipe card at the bottom shows the exact cook time and temperatures.
- Mix together all of your donut ingredients. I did this with a whisk and a mixing bowl, no fancy tools required!
- Add wet ingredients and stir until well mixed.
- Spray donut pan with coconut spray and fill approximately ⅔ of the way.
- Bake in oven for 14-16 minutes or until lightly browned. Allow Keto donuts to cool in pan for 5 minutes then move to a cooling rack to cool completely.
How To Make Keto Glaze
- Allow them to cool while you make the glaze.
- Melt butter in sauce pan and add in sweetener. Stir until sweetener is completely melted then add in vanilla. Stir over medium heat for about 5 minutes. You can also complete this step in the microwave.
- Remove glaze from heat.
- Dip each cooled donut into the glaze and allow to cool completely.
- Storage: Glazed Keto donuts are best stored in an airtight container for up to 3 days at room temperature. To extend the shelf life, store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
- Freezer: You may freeze them for up to three months in a freezer-safe container.
If you don't have a pastry bag, try using a quart-sized Ziploc bag and cutting off the tip.
You may also use a bowl with a spout and carefully pour the batter into the donut pan.
Fill your pan no more than ⅔ of the way up. If you fill the donut pan fully, the donuts will overflow.
To ensure my Keto donuts do not stick to the pan, I spray the donut pan very well with coconut oil spray. You can also run a butter knife around the perimeter of the donuts and the donut hole section to gently loosen them prior to removing.
Also - be sure to allow them to cool in the pan for at least five minutes before flipping them onto a cooling rack to cool fully.

I want to fix the donuts but I only have the keto collagan powder! Can you recommend a protein powder that is good to use?
These are really Amazing!!! I've tried different recipes that say they taste amazingly good and they are horrible. I'm not a fan of almond flour and coconut flour but these doughnuts really do taste good!!! They hit the spot if your wanting something sweet. I added a little Sweet Life banana flavoring. Thanks for sharing this recipe❣
glad you liked them!!
Hi, is there anything I can substitute the protein powder with? If I don't have any?
I would definitely not leave out the protein powder. I haven't tested them with anything else
Is the carb count total carbs or net carbs? Thanks! These are FABULOUS, btw!
total carbs. Glad you liked them!
Hi! I want to try these but I can’t find the recipe! Not sure what’s going on but I can see your chocolate glazed donut recipe just can’t see this one. Thanks!!
should be working now. thanks!

Yes the sugar/carb content was fine but is there a specific protein powder to use or just any? Like the plant one I mentioned or wheat or ?
any protein powder would work. if you're doing keto, make sure to double check the carbs. I haven't used the one you mentioned
John D Keith
What specific type of protein powder? Does organic plant protein from livfit superfood work?
check the ingredient label. If you're doing Keto then you'll want to check the sugar/carb content
I made these tonight. My hubby and I just loved them! I added Confectioners sugar Swerve. I mistakenly added 1/4 c coconut flour, so added a bit more coconut milk...The glaze did not thicken for me, so I added extra confectioners sugar Swerve. They were yummy!!!! Thank you for the great recipe! 🙂
I'm so glad you liked them!
Not bad, almond flour always has a cornbread texture . Glaze is really good.
you could try another flour too, maybe coconut flour would be a good substitute!
What other changes do you recommend if substituting coconut flour? I know coconut flour is more absorbent and I've read adding another egg to the recipe. Do you agree with that? Do I add more liquid as well?
I wouldn't add more liquid personally. I'd start with swapping out coconut flour first and taking it from there. Adding in an extra egg wouldn't be a terrible idea but I wouldn't add more liquid until you try one modification at a time.
Have you considered changing it to egg whites instead of using whole eggs?
You could definitely give it a try!
What protein powder did you use or recommend?
I really like Orgain and Vital Proteins!
OMG! We just finished them! My family devoured them as soon as they were done. The best keto doughnuts so far. They actually taste like real ones ❤❤❤
awesome!!! so glad you loved them!
Can you send me the recipe please, thank you
the post has been updated. Sorry there was an issue with it but all should be good now 🙂
Super upset about the lack of clarity in this recipe! At what point was I supposed to know not to use the egg yolks? The ingredients say "eggs" and the instructions say "mix all ingredients together". My donuts came out like cookies despite following the recipe to a T, now I read in the comments I wasn't supposed to add the yolks..... Very irritating.
Hello! I'm so sorry this didn't work out for you. The recipe was updated from the original commenters and you are to use the whole egg, although just using the whites is an option too. Did you make any other modifications to the recipe?
what can you use as a substitute for protein powder
what is the need for substitution? dietary or lack of product?
Should the protein powder be unflavored? Or can you use a flavored protein powder?
it doesn't really matter just make sure you check the nutrition label to ensure that it's keto-friendly!
THIS LOOKS SO GOOD, I LOVE DONUTS.
its seriously delicious! hope you give them a try!
I made these. They were delicious. However, it did not come out of the pan as anticipated. They were a beast to remove and looked more like Krispy Kreme glazed hash. I oiled the pan with butter cause that is all I had. Could that possibly be the reason it happened? I didn't have the coconut spray. l
that's crazy! I'm sure it's possible depending on how the pan was glazed. Odd because mine came out so easily! such a bummer but glad they still tasted yum!
Hey Kykye. I am not sure if you are using a metal nonstick or silicone donut pan but I got rid of my silicone pan for the reason you described above. It did not matter what I greased that thing with donuts would not come out as one. My metal nonstick works best with a non-stick spray. I personally use Trader Joe's Coconut spray and donuts tend to come out just fine. I am sure the baking spray found in other grocery stores would also work great but not my preference. If greasing with butter I would do the old fashioned trick of adding a little flour and shaking, then discarding the excess. I have also noticed that with some recipes baking them just a couple of minutes longer will help them come out easier as well. The trouble area tends to be around the center so try to loosen that area with a small silcone spatula first if it is sticking. Backed donuts can be tricky to remove, especially if it is all almond flour. This recipe is a mix and tends to release easier. I hope these tips help a little.
love these tips! the coconut spray from TJ's is a fave of mine too!
I do have a metal non stick. I bought some spray so I think I will give it another try. The worst that can happen is I use a spoon to eat the pieces instead of the doughnut finger choke hold ; ) Thank you for the advice. Greatly appreciated!
OMG! Blasphemy! You discard the yolk? 😛
I do suggest adding the yoke back in to an omlette or scramble. It's the part with the nutrients.
Is the protein powder required? How many servings will this make? How many donuts in 1 serving?
yes I would include it. Yields 6-8 donuts and one per serving.
Great recipe! When do the egg yolks go in?
don't add the yolks. You can use them for something else or discard.
Do you use Swerve confectioners or granular sweetener for the donut part of the recipe? I’m pretty sure it’s confectioners for the glaze.
I used the same as for the regular donut part but confectioners would work much better!
Loved these. Made them as mini doughnuts cause that's the pan I had. I can't seem to find nutritional information? Thanks
Just added nutritional info!
May want to add a comment in the instructions about discarding the yolks. Says to sit aside for later which I assumed was later in the recipe. Added with wet ingredients. Thanks!
reflected! thanks for the note 🙂
Just wanted you to know I made these just as directed, except I used the Lankato Monk fruit sweetener, and my family was amazed. My son, who is not eating keto, told me they were better than the donuts he had earlier in the day. PLUS, I got a thumbs up from my husband. This has been a difficult task with other desserts.
The glaze MAKES the donuts. SOOOOOOOOO GOOOD!!!!
Thank you, I will be making again. Very soon!
oh that is awesome!!!! I will have to try Lankato too! thanks for the tip 🙂
Hi! Looks great, but do you have the nutritional info? Thanks!
Hey Debbie! No problem! I updated the post to reflect nutrition. Thanks 🙂
Can I omit almond milk for heavy whipping cream
it's worth a try! It may not give you the same consistency as the recipe but it doesn't hurt to give it a try if you can't do the heavy whipping cream. coconut cream would be another option if you're looking for something dairy-free
i would like to try your recipe, but is the nutrition guide only for 1(3g of carbs) donut or the batch? thank you!
macros are listed per donut
