Keto Donut Holes made with almond flour - a low-carb donut recipe | #glutenfree #dairyfree

If you’re anything like me, you periodically find yourself smack dab in the middle of a donut hole craving. Instead of succumbing to the drive-thru, I make these to satisfy my fast food fix without sacrificing any of my wellness goals.

Made with almond flour, coconut flour, Truvia® Natural Sweetener, and coconut milk, these carb-conscious donut holes are perfect as a sweet treat, and they’re dairy and gluten free!

Cinnamon and Sugar Low-Carb Donut Holes |

Instead of sugar, I used Truvia® Natural Sweetener, a zero-calorie sweetener made from stevia leaf extract, erythritol, and natural flavors. Truvia® Natural Sweetener products are also a breeze to use in any application – sprinkled, stirred, or poured!

Available in packets, a Spoonable Jar and a new 17oz bag, Truvia® is the ideal addition to your morning coffee or for cooking and baking.

Recipe Adaptations:

  • Replace the coconut milk with pumpkin puree to make these a pumpkin treat! If you do so, be sure to add some pumpkin spice seasoning as well!
  • The almond flour may be replaced with hazelnut flour.
  • Because coconut flour is a finicky flour that absorbs four times more liquid than other flours, there is no way of easily replacing it with another flour without changing the rest of the recipe. 
  • You can create a glaze for the donut holes, rather than rolling them in Truvia® and cinnamon. Just combine 1 Tbsp Truvia® + 1/2 cup full-fat coconut milk. Heat mixture on stovetop until reduced by half. Allow mixture to cool before dipping the donut holes.

Low-carb donut holes made with almond flour
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 35 minutes
Servings: 30 donut holes


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and lightly spray a silicone cake pop mold (or a mini donut tray!) and place on a baking sheet.
  • Whisk the eggs, coconut milk, and vanilla extract together in a mixing bowl until well combined. In a separate mixing bowl, stir together the remaining (dry) ingredients.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl with the dry ingredients and stir well until combined. The batter will be nice and thick.
  • Spoon (or pipe) the donut batter into the prepared cake pop mold, filling the holes most of the way up. Secure the lid on the cake pop mold and place the whole baking sheet in the oven. Bake 20 minutes.
  • Remove the donut holes from the oven and allow them to cool at least 5 minutes before taking the lid off. Allow the donut holes to cool to room temperature.
  • Add the ingredients for rolling (Truvia® Natural Sweetener and cinnamon) to a small bowl or plate and stir well.
  • Run a spoon between the mold and the donut holes to pop them out of the mold. Roll the donut holes in the Truvia® Natural Sweetener and cinnamon mixture, and serve!

Questions and Reviews

  1. What other flours can be used beside expensive organic almond and hazelnut flours? What about cassava flour? or tapioca?

    Also, what nutritional information can you provide?

    1. Hi Tamarque! You can use cassava flour, but the carb count will go up substantially. The nutritional information will vary depending on which flour you use. Once you adapt the recipe to your liking, you can plug the ingredients into and it will give you the nutritional breakdown per serving. Hope this helps! xo

  2. Great Post Julia, i would like to know if we can add more ingredients like clove in place of cinnamon? thanks!
