The recipe is fairly simple, I’d say that even a novice baker could make these keto donuts. All you need is coconut flour, whey isolate, cocoa powder, eggs, butter, sugar substitute and sour cream. Basically you just have to mix them together in a bowl and pour into a donut mold.

I used this donut mold from amazon (WHICH I LOVE!) but if you use a metal donut pan, I recommend greasing it with butter before adding in the batter.


I highly recommend using full fat sour cream. I bought mine at my local grocery store and despite it not being labelled as low fat – it was really runny meaning it’s lacking fat to make it more solid. So try to get the full fat version!

The coconut flour donuts and glaze turned out beautiful. Taste was right on. Thumbs up for sure, and this recipe is a keeper.

The taste and texture of these were perfect, but the baking time was off. It needed an additional 5 minutes in the oven. When I first took them out they were still like lava cakes. 5 extra minutes was perfect. Next time I might split the difference and put them in for 15 and see if that’s enough. Otherwise this recipe is a keeper!
