Recipe: Keto Fall Pumpkin Spice Donuts

Created by Nadia Sehweil

These donuts are the perfect treats for fall.  I try to keep my sugar intake very low and avoid both refined & unrefined sugar as often as possible.  Baking with Lakanto Monkfruit sweetener can be tricky but with the right mix of ingredients you can avoid the metallic taste.  These donuts are a great treat, satiating and won’t spike your blood sugar levels and mess with your hormones!  The pumpkin adds a nice healthy kick, and the cinnamon and spices are a great way to balance your blood-sugar levels.  Hope you enjoy as much as I do!  

Love, Nadia x

Donut mix:

  • 2 ½ cups finely ground almond flour 
  • ¼ tsp aluminium free baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp Himalayan salt
  • 2 eggs separated
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter (I love Kerrygold butter), melted & cooled to room temperature 
  • ¾ cup organic pumpkin puree (I prefer fresh pumpkin over canned.  Steam fresh pumpkin, cool then puree)
  • ½ tsp alcohol free vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetener (or use monkfruit/erythritol of choice)
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ginger powder
  • 1/8 tsp allspice
  • 1/8 tsp cloves

For the coating:

  • ¼ cup Lakanto Monkfruit Sweetner – Golden 
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • Avocado oil to cover the donuts

Instructions:

  • Heat oven to 190 ºC.
  • Lightly butter the donut pan.
  • Whisk together almond flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt then set aside.
  • Whisk egg whites until they get very thick & foamy with an electric mixer.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the 2 egg yolks, butter, pumpkin, vanilla extract, spices & monkfruit until smooth.
  • Fold the egg whites into the egg yolk mixture.
  • Gently combine dry ingredients to the egg yolk mixture.
  • Spoon the mixed batter into the donut pan.
  • Bake for approximately 15 mins until donuts are lightly browned on top and a toothpick inserted comes out clean.
  • Allow donuts to cool for 10 mins in pan before removing then place on a wire rack to continue cooling.
  • For the topping: In a small bowl mix the Lakanto Golden sugar & cinnamon. Spray or lightly coat each donut with avocado oil then roll each donut in the mixture.
  • Serve & Enjoy!

Notes: 

I source my Lakanto products on iherb.com.

Make sure you’re sourcing a pure avocado oil that isn’t mixed with any other oils or junk!

If you’d rather opt for a Paleo option you can use coconut sugar instead of monkfruit. I prefer the health benefits of a sugar free dessert.
