Curated Recipes with Nutritional Values for Type 1 & Type 2 Diabetes

Keto Apple Cider Donuts

Original recipe: sugarfreelondoner.com

INGREDIENTS:

  • Batter – dry ingredients

    • 1 cup almond flour 
    • 1/4 cup coconut flour  
    • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
    • 2 tsp cinnamon optional add-ons: see notes
    • 1/4 cup granulated sweetener white or golden (Lakanto brand works well for low carb option)

    Batter – wet ingredients

    • 3 eggs large, room temperature
    • 1/3 cup butter melted 
    • 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
    • 1 apple  measured after it is peeled, cored and chopped (circa 1 cup chopped)
    • 1 tsp vanilla extract

    Coating

    • 2 tbsp butter melted
    • 1/4 cup granulated sweetener white or golden (Lakanto brand works well for low carb option)
    • 1-2 tsp cinnamon

        DIRECTIONS:

        1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / 350 F. Grease a silicone donut pan with melted butter or oil.
        2. Peel the apple and chop it into small pieces. Put these in a bowl, cover and cook in a microwave until soft (mine took 4 minutes at 900W). Alternatively, simmer on the stove with a splash of water until very soft. ***see recipe notes
        3. In a food processor or high-speed blender, blend the eggs until fluffy, pale in color and double the size.
        4. Add the melted butter, sweetener, apple cider vinegar, vanilla extract and cooked apple and blend.
        5. Now add all remaining dry ingredients – almond flour, coconut flour, spices and baking powder. Blend until a smooth batter.
        6. Fill into the prepared donut pan. Don’t over-fill or you’ll lose the hole! Bake for 14 minutes.
        7. Let the donuts cool completely before removing from the pan.
        8. Mix together the “cinnamon sugar” mixture. Brush the donuts lightly with melted butter and roll in the mixture until coated all over.

        NOTES:

        Net carbs: 1.9g per donut. Makes 16 donuts.

        Optional add-ons to the cinnamon (optional but recommended):

        • ¼ teaspoon ginger
        • ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
        • ? teaspoon allspice
        • ? teaspoon cardamom

        ***I started out with 125 grams of apple and ended up with 90 grams after microwaving.

        *** Additional step if you DON’T have a high-speed blender: Puree the cooked apples before adding them to the batter. This way you ensure that you have a smooth batter without apple bits.
