These bite-sized keto donuts are low in carbs, super soft, and incredibly easy to make. Eat a few gluten-free donuts glazed with chocolate for breakfast or as a delicious filling snack.
I got this waffle maker that comes with a mini donuts maker attachment. At the time I was super thrilled that’s also non-stick, and I can make non-fried donuts. Not sure where you can find the exact same brand as mine but I found a similar one on Amazon at a really good deal.
It took me a few attempts until I figured out how to use it without making a huge mess: never fill the donut holes 100%.

I love these smaller keto donuts as they are great for portion control and carb counting. It also takes less than 5 minutes to throw the ingredients into the blender which is fantastic as I’m not a fan of complicated keto recipes.
How to Make Keto Donuts?
I’ve been making this recipe all summer, and I guarantee you’ll love it. These donuts are super soft, fluffy and we use no grain or oils.
Ingredients for Keto Donuts
We’ll use a combination of gluten-free flours because each has different properties and helps these donuts have a great taste. The coconut flour absorbs moisture and helps create a fluffy texture.
- Almond Flour
- Coconut Flour
- Cream Cheese or Coconut Cream
- Baking Powder
- Vanilla Extract
The toppings are my favorite part. Over the summer I topped the keto donuts with yogurt and berries, chocolate glaze and hazelnuts pieces. Add butter and cinnamon while hot, and you have a perfect keto breakfast.

So, what are the secrets?
It’s effortless. I use a blender to combine all the ingredients, but you can use a hand mixer. Insane, no? Eggs, cream cheese, and vanilla extract go in first. Blend well before adding the grain-free flours.
After all the ingredients are blended, let the batter sit for a few moments. The mixture should be slightly thick that resemble a pancake one
Heat your donut maker (or waffle maker) and pour the batter into each cavity of the donut maker. Let it cook for 2-3 minutes on each side.

For the chocolate glaze
The recipe for the chocolate glaze is very easy. Melt 2 oz. unsweetened dark chocolate, with 1 tbsp of butter. Add about one tbsp of Erythritol and stir until well combined. Let the chocolate glaze rest for a few minutes then it’s ready to use.
