Classic Chocolate Cake Donuts

Preparation 00:15 Cook Time 00:18 Serves 8     adjust servings

Low carb chocolate donuts made with coconut flour and dipped in a sugar-free chocolate glaze. My kids declared these to be the best keto donuts I have ever made!

Ingredients

Donuts

  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 1/3 cup Swerve Sweetener
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 6 tbsp brewed coffee or water (coffee intensifies the chocolate flavour)

Glaze

  • 1/4 cup powdered Swerve Sweetener
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 to 2 tbsp water

Instructions

Donuts:

  1. Preheat the oven to 325F and grease a donut pan very well.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the coconut flour, sweetener, cocoa powder, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the eggs, melted butter, and vanilla extract, then stir in the cold coffee or water until well combined.
  3. Divide the batter among the wells of the donut pan. If you have a six-well donut pan, you may need to work in batches.
  4. Bake 16 to 20 minutes, until the donuts are set and firm to the touch. Remove and let cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then flip out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Glaze:

  1. In a medium shallow bowl, whisk together the powdered sweetener and cocoa powder. Add the heavy cream and water and whisk to combine.
  2. Add enough water until the glaze thins out and is of a "dippable" consistency, without being too watery.
  3. Dip the top of each donut into the glaze and let set, about 30 minutes.

Recipe Notes

How many donuts you get depends on the size of your donut pan. You will likely get 8 to 10 donuts.
