Keto Cereal Donuts

Baked low carb donuts just became your new go-to keto breakfast! Enjoy these low sugar donuts in the morning or as a sweet keto dessert anytime. 


  • 1 cup Almond Flour, sifted 1 tsp
  • Xanthan Gum, adds structure, texture, browning
  • ¼ tsp Baking Soda
  • 2 tbsp Swerve, or granulated sweetener of choice
  • 2 Eggs
  • ¼ cup Sour Cream

For the Icing

  • 2 tbsp Butter, soft 2-4 tbsp
  • Powdered Swerve (or powdered sugar)
  • A cup of low carb Fruity or Cinnamon Bun cereal to garnish


  1. Heat oven to 425 degrees and spray a donut pan with cooking oil.
  2. Combine the sifted flour with the other dry ingredients and set aside.
  3. Beat the eggs and sour cream.
  4. Add the wet to the dry and mix to combine. Don't over mix the batter.
  5. Fill a pastry bag or ziplock with the batter and cut the tip about two inches up. If the opening doesn't give you a wide enough strip of batter, just cut off a little extra.
  6. Fill the cavities about ¾ full and smooth over any edges with a spoon (or finger) dipped in a little oil or melted butter.
  7. Bake the donuts for exactly 7-9 minutes or just until the tops brown.
  8. Cool in the pan for 5 minutes, then sugar them or add icing. Top with low carb Cinnamon Bun or Fruity cereal.

For the Icing

  1. Whip the butter, extract and sweetener together.
  2. To thin, add 1 tsp warm water and a time until desired consistency.
