Simple Low Carb Donuts

6 Donuts162 cals

So it’s Sunday morning and you’re on your ritual donut run that you always end up regretting because of that dozen you order for family and friends you end up eating six of them (I know I have). Lets change that today. How about if I told you in the time it takes you to drive to the donut shop you could make a dozen LOW CARB donuts without the side of regret, would you believe me? Well you don’t have to. Today I’m gonna show you my low carb donut recipe and yes, they actually taste good!

First lets get this out of the way, you’re gonna need a donut pan. You can make them without one but for less than 10 bucks there’s no reason you shouldn’t have one. Get this one by clicking right here.

Now take out a bowl and mix together 3/4 cup or 84 grams of almond flour, 1 1/2 scoops or 45 grams of protein powder, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder.

In another bowl mix together 1 tablespoon of melted unsalted butter, 1 large whole egg, 2 large egg whites, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, 2.65 ounces or 75 grams of fat free greek yogurt, and 3 tablespoons of a sweetener.

Add your dry ingredients into your wet ingredients and mix everything together.

Last, coat your donut pan with some non-stick cooking spray and add your mix in. Make sure not to get any batter in your hole and if you do to wipe it off before the oven. Top your donuts with whatever you want and bake them on 350F/176C for 8-10 minutes. Today I made two batches one plain that I chocolate glazed and one with sprinkles and chocolate chips!

Donut Sunday can now be donut everyday with this recipe. These donuts don’t just look good, they seriously taste just as good as they look. The best thing about this recipe is that if you get bored with it or wanna change things up you can easily add whatever you want into the doughnut or on top of it.

Now I have some donuts to eat…STAY HEALTHY!

    Great Recipe! I wanted a chocolate skew, so I used chocolate protein powder and cocoa powder instead of cinnamon. Came out great! Thanks for the recipes!

  2. Deb Seyler on July 21, 2016 at 12:00 am

    I made these last night – WONDERFUL! Loved them. Thanks for creating and posting!!!

    Any Idea what i can take instead of almond flour?

    These came out very well for me. I might try a little more yogurt next time for a little more moisture. A trick I used for filling the donut pan was to put my batter in a ziploc bag and snip off the corner and pipe the batter into the donut pan. Helps avoid the dreaded batter in the hole.

      Jason, great tip for piping…I’ve done that before with great success!!! Glad you liked them.

    SO GOOD! Swapped out whole eggs for the egg whites as I am trying to be LCHF. Tastes terrific and I love the texture! I have yet to be disappointed with a single recipe on your site, thanks for everything!
