These Sugar Free Chocolate Glazed Donuts are low carb, gluten free, keto and are a tasty, non-guilty breakfast or snack treat!
LOW CARB DONUTS
Sugar Free Low Carb Donuts will make you feel like you're cheating on your keto diet! I can't think of another word that gets the kids to come for breakfast quicker than the word, donuts! At least with these sugar free low carb donuts, you won't be feeling guilty if you indulge in one or two! The family will devour them and won't even realize they're healthier than the typical store bought high carb pastry!
Keto donuts can be made with various low carb flours like almond, coconut, sesame, sunflower. But today's is made with almond which is most readily available for everyone. You can make your own almond flour, but it will be harder to grind it as fine as you can when purchasing it. I like the brands Anthony's and Bob's Red Mill for the finest almond flour.
CAN THESE BE MADE NUT FREE?
You should be able to swap out the almond flour with the same amount of sunflower seed flour to make these nut free. I haven't tested this myself, but most of my recipes swapping for sunflower seed with the same amount have worked out perfectly.
For the chocolate glaze, just replace unsweetened almond milk with coconut milk or another non dairy milk you prefer. Heavy cream can also be used for the chocolate glaze.
The sweetener used is a personal preference. We've used the brand Swerve, which is erythritol because we feel it is one of the best ones on the market today. I also like the brand Lakanto which is monk fruit sweetener. You really can just swap and try recipes using different sweeteners to determine your preferences. Here is my Sweetener Guide and Conversion Chart.

OMG these are so good! I overfilled the donut pan so I’m wondering what sized you used.
Please stop using almond flour in everything. Some of us are prone to kudney stones from intake of almond flour. I ended up in the hospital with a kidney stione when Igave up my sugary treats for keto desserts made with almond flour
Do you melt the butter in this recipe or just add it in at room temperature?
How many calories would there be without the glaze?
They rose way over the donut pan and were more cake like, in fact they fell apart when I tried to get them out of pan. They were sticking too much. Tasted good though, just not donuts. I did use refined coconut oil so I didn’t taste that. May try again. Perhaps make it into 12 donuts instead of six?
Made it today. It was delicious. I had to cut down the baking time 8-10 mins so it will not burn. Thanks for sharing the recipe. ☺️
I had a real problem turning them out of the pan. I greased the pan but most of them still fell apart..The donut taste is very good but not sure if I like the chocolate glaze. Any suggestions on how to get them from crumbling?
The donut recipe was amazing and so good! However, I didn't care for the icing recipe. Something about the coconut oil just threw the whole taste off.
Did you use a "refined" coconut oil. It has really minimal/practically no coconut taste; just adds that nice shine and mixability (is that a word ?? haha!).
Ok I know I'm hogging the comment section, but I have to tell you how amazing this recipe is for our lifestyle! My active, skinny, non sugar eating hubby LOVES sweets and has to have them always on hand. Me, I don't like to bake much, love to cook and I'm a potter so that's where all my creativity gets used up - so to always have desserts available is a PAIN. Not since I found this recipe though! When I run out of whatever dessert I last made, during dinner I can whip these up in minutes and have them done in time for his dessert - easy, peasy and with very little clean up. Tonight I made them with a little cinnamon added to the batter, then I made a maple glaze with a couple tablespoons of cream cheese and then dipped each in a bowl of finely chopped pecans OMG they are beyond heavenly. I'm not a big chocolate fan (he is) and it's so nice to get a break from everything chocolate (even though the chocolate glaze in the recipe is superb) - that being said I could eat these donuts without glaze happily they are that good! Thanks again ?
Thank you so much!
Can you substitute powdered Swerve for granulated in the batter? Thank you!
I think that would be fine.
In the words of my skinny, sweet tooth crazed hubby..."How did you make these? They are so good I could eat 7 of these a day!" Thank you for yet again another incredible recipe! It's corny to say, but I always feel like you really care about the health of your readers, I don't feel that as much with other keto food bloggers, thank you so much for what you do.
That was the sweetest comment, thank you!
Suggestions if I don't have a donut pan?
Can I substitute coconut flour for the almond flour?
Can I freeze these donuts?
