Ever since I made keto bagels in the silicone bagel and donut mold I bought, my kids have been begging me to make a keto donuts recipe and this past week, I decided to surprise them with a batch for breakfast! My older son, Jaden, decided to cut out sugar this year – he’s not completely keto but has done a great job of sticking with the no sugar resolution since March. So, he’s become my best critic when it comes to keto baked goods and alternative sweeteners in my cooking and baking.

These keto cinnamon sugar donuts – which I roll in granulated Swerve mixed with extra cinnamon and cardamom – which is my secret ingredient that take these over the top and infused the with warm, earthy flavors – is perfect for breakfast with coffee (my younger son likes to dunk them in fresh homemade almond milk) or for a little, guilt-free sweet treat in the middle of the day.

A note on the almond milk in this recipe – when you buy almond milk at the market – check the ingredients to make sure it doesn’t include fillers. I like to make homemade almond milk because it’s really simple to make and I know it’s pure – but just make sure when you buy it at the store that you’re getting a brand without Carrageenan which is a thickener that is known to cause inflammation — which is something we are trying to avoid on keto!

I’ll be making more keto donuts recipes after the success of this one – stay tuned!
