Missing donuts since you’ve gone keto?
I’ve been on the hunt for a donut replacement that’s keto-friendly with no sugar added. Friends, I think I’ve found the answer to your donut-loving cravings. Time to indulge in the best keto cake donut recipe!
This yummy keto donut recipe clocks in at just 2 net carbs per donut! WOOHOO! It’s the perfect cake donut that you can make to have on hand for breakfast, snacks, or dessert. I love that the ingredients are simple and the taste is a home run!
See how easy it is to make these keto donuts by watching the video below.
*Important note: In the video above, we use 4 – 1/2 cup scoops of almond flour to get the 2 cups total the recipe calls for.
Here are a few recipe tips to keep in mind when making keto donuts:
- After searching for the best donut molds, I came across these silicone molds and purchased them after reading all the amazing reviews on Amazon. The donuts popped right out without having to grease the sides!
- If you are craving chocolate, you can add 2 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa to your dry ingredients to make a delicious chocolate cake keto donut.
- I’m a big fan of using Lakanto Powdered Monk Fruit Sweetener. I used it for the frosting and feel like it doesn’t have a strong cooling aftertaste like some other keto sweeteners. You can grab it directly from Lakanto and save 15% off your order when you use promo code HIP2KETO at checkout! Note that any kind of powdered keto sweetener will work.
- If you have kiddos who love sprinkled donuts (or if you love sprinkles too!), Amazon has several different options available.
- If you can’t find butter vanilla extract, you can use 1 teaspoon of vanilla and 1 teaspoon of butter extract, or just use 2 teaspoons of vanilla extract.

“On my gosh, I’m not sure how you did it, but the whole house smelled like donuts while these were baking. This is such a fun creation and they came out not only beautiful looking, but they were also so flavorful! I never knew donut molds were a thing, but I am so happy they are.
