These chocolate donuts are kid approved and keto friendly, low carb, sugar free, and gluten free! They are moist, sweet, and delicious the added chocolate makes this the perfect Keto donut recipe.

These donuts have collagen powder which is great because they are packed full of extra protein and nutrition!

How many net carbs are in a donut?

These chocolate donuts are just 5 net carbs per donut. Whoo hoo! Making them the perfect treat. However regular donuts have about 23 grams of carbohydrates per donut.

I love this recipe because the prep time is simply 10 minutes, honestly you can’t even drive and pick up donuts that fast, plus these are a healthy donut option – so it is a win / win!

First you will want to add the dry ingredients (coconut flour, collagen, xantham gum, stevia extract, baking powder, and salt) to a medium bowl and whisk until all the ingredients are well combined. Don’t forget to preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Next in a separate bowl add the liquid ingredients (coconut milk, butter, eggs, and cream cheese)  and whisk with a whisker or electric mixer for a minute.

Pour the dry ingredients into the wet batter, stir until combined. The batter will become a dough-like, soft but firm.

Let the dough mixture rest for a minute and prepare the egg wash.

In a small bowl stir together the egg wash ingredients (egg yolk and butter) then set aside.

Divide the dough into six equal parts and make a ball with each.

Place parchment paper over the counter and roll each ball into a dough stick of about 10 inches each, close the ends of each stick to make a circle.

Important note: sticks may break, that’s normal and ok, wet your hands with water or oil and carefully put the piece back together.

Spray a donut tin with oil and place each donut circle inside each tin.

Then brush the egg wash onto each donut.

Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 18 to 20 minutes or until donuts are golden underneath and firm to the touch.

Remove from the oven, carefully remove them from the donut tin and place them on a cooling rack for at least 15 minutes.

What kind of chocolate is OK for Keto?

There are many brands of chocolate that are Keto approved. Dark chocolate is generally the best option for Keto. I personally like Lily Chocolate, I think it has the best taste.

Now for the fun part – frosting!

To make the chocolate ganache:

Start by heating the coconut milk in the microwave 30 seconds at the time until it is very hot.

In a small bowl add the chocolate chips, and pour over the hot milk.

Stir with a spoon or small spatula until all the chocolate chips are melted.

Dip half of the donuts into the ganache and place again on a cooling rack, repeat the same step until you have dipped all the donuts into the chocolate.

Let the donuts sit until chocolate has become hard – you may speed up this process by leaving them in the fridge for 10 minutes.

Enjoy! These make the perfect breakfast or sweet treat. They are kid approved and a great Keto friendly donut option.
