Low Carb Chocolate Donuts with Chocolate Glaze

When a chocolate craving hits, nothing beats it better than a chocolate donut–especially a chocolate donut with a chocolate glaze. Rich in flavor but low in carbs, these low carb chocolate donuts are ready to enjoy quickly so you can tame those cravings. I like to use ChocZero chocolate chips when baking – they’re perfectly sweetened and melt down well for the glaze.

These donuts only take about 30 minutes to make in total and I swear, they taste EXACTLY like Hostess chocolate donuts. The perfect dupe!

These are just one of the 60 recipes in my latest book – Small-Batch Keto Baking which focuses on smaller batches so you aren’t making dozens of treats at a time. I love baking this time of year, so I’ll be sharing lots of recipes from the book and more!

Ingredients
  

FOR THE DONUTS

  • 3 tbsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tbsp heavy whipping cream
  • 2 tbsp sweetener, I like Allulose
  • 2 large eggs
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 3 tbsp sugar-free chocolate chips, melted
  • ½ cup almond flour
  • 1 scoop chocolate protein powder
  • 2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ½ tsp baking powder

FOR THE CHOCOLATE GLAZE

  • 3 tbsp sugar-free chocolate chips
  • 2 tsp coconut oil

Instructions
 

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl using a hand mixer, blend the butter, heavy cream and sweetener until smooth. Add the eggs, one at a time, and then vanilla extract and again, beat until smooth.
  • Add the melted chocolate and remaining dry ingredients and beat until the batter is smooth.
  • Spoon the mixture into your donut mold. I use a silicone mold, however if you’re using a tin, make sure you spray it with nonstick-spray first.
  • Bake for 15 minutes and allow to cool while you prepare the glaze.
  • Melt the chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave in 30-second intervals until glossy.
  • Dip the cooled donuts in the glaze and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Refrigerate until the glaze is set.
