Gingerbread Keto Doughnuts

Ingredients

  1. For the doughnuts:
    1 1/2 cups almond flour (I use superfine)
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon pink salt
    2 tablespoons golden Lakanto sweetener (or other brown sugar substitute)
    1/2 cup powdered Lakanto sweetener (or powdered erythritol)
    1/4 cup MCT oil
    1/4 cup melted coconut butter
    2 eggs
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    1/4 cup collagen peptides
    1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon ginger powder
    1 tablespoon molasses (this does contain sugar but only adds about 1 gram of carbs to the whole recipe and really makes the texture amazing!)
    2 tablespoons water
  1. For the "sugared topping"
    A few tablespoons MCT oil (may need more)
    1/4 cup granulated golden or regular Lakanto (or granulated stevia)
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

  1. Grease a doughnut (or muffin) pan and preheat the oven to 350ºF. I love using a silicon doughnut pan because the doughnuts pop out super easily once they are cooked. They are also affordable to pick up from Amazon.
  2. Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a large bowl with a handheld mixer or stand mixer (this removes any clumps).
  3. Add the wet ingredients, except the eggs.
  4. Gently add the eggs once everything else is mixed together well. Do not overmix. You just want to ensure everything is fully incorporated.
  5. Scoop the batter into the doughnut pan, filling up each one to the top.
  6. Bake for about 15-20 minutes, checking regularly, ensuring not to overbake them (this is key to make sure they don't come out dry).
  7. Once the top slightly springs back at you when touched or a toothpick comes out clean, remove the doughnuts from the oven and allow them to cool.
  8. For the topping, once cooled, pop them out of the doughnut (or muffin) pan and dip or brush in the MCT oil. Then immediately dip them into a shallow bowl with the granulated sugar of choice and cinnamon mixture, ensuring both sides and top and bottom get the sugar coating.
  9. Complete this with the rest of the doughnuts, serve, and enjoy them with all of your friends and family!
