Soft and fluffy on the inside and crispy sugary on the outside, these low carb glazed donuts are absolutely delicious!



  • 4 tablespoons coconut flour
  • 3/4 cup + 1 tablespoon almond flour
  • 2 teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons monk fruit sweetener
  • 3 tablespoons erythritol
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 4 beaten eggs ( I took out 2 tablespoons of egg)


  • 1/2 cup monk fruit and/or erythritol
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Sift all dry ingredients, smoothing out any lumps. Whisk together in a bowl
  3. Add the egg, oil and vanilla and mix until it comes together as a thick dough.
  4. Use a piping or zip lock bag to pipe dough into the pan.  Bake for 20 minutes.
  5. My pan held 6 donuts, so I piped the rest of the dough after the first batch was finished baking.
  6. Cool donuts on rack and make the glaze.
  7. In a small sauce pan, combine the water, sweetener and oil.  
  8. Cook on medium low heat for about 5 minutes while whisking the glaze in the pan.  Add in vanilla.
  9. I used tongs to dip the donuts into the glaze and let them dry a bit on parchment paper before dipping again.  
  10. If the glaze starts to harden in the pan, you can reheat for a minute or two to melt.
  11. Let the donuts fully cool and the glaze will harden a bit on the outside to become sweetly crispy.
