    The BEST Keto Donut Hole Recipe

    The BEST Keto Donut Holes that are an easy-to-make, extremely comforting sweet treat for your low carb diet!

    Sometimes you just want to bake something incredible.

    Those times, this is the recipe to go for.

    Soft, moist, buttery and light as air, with a delicious meltaway texture and a classic vanilla glaze these are even better than the conventional donuts.

    They will make any get together instantly better and they will steal the show at a tea party.

    They are most likely the coziest dough to bake especially if you finish them off with a dash of cinnamon now that the weather is getting colder.

    Make sure to glaze them while they are still hot from the oven to achieve this syrupy and moist consistency.

    Keto Donut Hole Recipe

    For these delicious low carb donut holes you’ll need to grab the following.

    For the Donuts:

    • 30g Almond Flour
    • 1/3 tsp Xanthan Gum
    • 3/4 oz Butter
    • 1 tbsp Erythritol
    • 1/4 tsp Salt
    • 1 Egg
    • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
    • 1 tsp Baking Powder

    For the Vanilla Glaze:

    • 1/3 cup powdered Erythritol
    • 1/2 tsp Heavy Cream
    • 1/3 tsp Vanilla Extract
    • 1 tbsp Water (if needed)

    Note: We’ve had some questions regarding the amount of almond flour used in this recipe.

    The amount of almond flour is correct, the only way to get the donut holes to be so moist inside is to use less flour and be precise.

    It’s also very important to allow the dough to rest to reach the desired consistency.

    Making the Keto Donut Holes

    To get started, preheat your oven to 430°F / 220°C and line a baking pan with parchment paper.

    Grab a bowl and combine your flour, xanthan gum, salt, Erythritol and baking powder.

    In a pot melt the butter over low heat, add the vanilla extract and then fold in the flour mixture.

    Mix constantly to incorporate all the ingredients and keep mixing with a spatula or wooden spoon for 2-3 minutes until a dough is formed (add a little water if needed, one tablespoon at a time).

    The dough has to rest to develop the desired consistency due to the lack of gluten.

    The dough should be easy to shape into balls that will hold their shape.

    Transfer the dough into a bowl and let it sit until it reaches room temperature.

    Once the dough has reached room temperature, add your egg to the dough and combine with an electric mixture until an elastic dough is formed.

    Cover with a tea towel and let it rest for 15-20 minutes.

    Once it’s ready, shape your dough into bite-sized balls and place them on your baking pan lined with parchment paper.

    Bake for 10 minutes at 430°F / 220°C, then lower the temperature to 355°F / 180°C and continue baking for 20 minutes until the balls have risen and are golden.

    Making the Vanilla Glaze

    Sift your powdered Erythritol into a mixing bowl and gradually add the heavy cream, vanilla extract and water (if needed) until you get a thick and pourable glaze.

    Finally, roll your donut holes in the glaze and place on a serving plate.

    Feel free to drizzle any remaining glaze over the donut holes and enjoy them!
