These delicious keto donuts are made with almond and coconut flours and a generous amount of powdered erythritol. They have only 3.7g of net carbs per serving which makes them an excellent low-carb and keto-friendly treat! They take only about 30 minutes of total preparation time. Handy when you wish to prepare yourself something simple yet amazingly delicious. Furthermore, these lovely blueberry cake donuts can stand in an air-tight container for days or even frozen up to 3 months and will taste as good as fresh.
Depending on your oven, baking time will vary between 10-12 minutes. Or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean and donuts are lightly golden brown on top. The dough, however, is a bit tender and tends to crack easily so you may want to use silicon donut pan and cool the donuts completely before removing them from the pan. Also, make sure to generously coat your donut pan with cooking spray or oil before baking to prevent the tender donut dough from sticking to the pan.
If you’re in a blueberry season, you can use fresh blueberries for the dough. As for the glaze, I strongly recommend using frozen blueberries. Frozen are preferred as they are a bit more liquidish and easier to beat into a smooth glaze. The glaze consistency totally depends on your taste. For a thicker glaze, you can simply add more sweetener and vice versa. Optionally, add a few drops of vanilla extract into the mixture and generously glaze your donuts before serving. Enjoy!
