I am obsessed with these other keto donuts recipes: lemon blueberry and strawberry donuts. Of course, this recipe for classic vanilla flavor is AMAZING. So, this is it folks – this is the recipe that started it all. The recipe that started with entire blog and my journey to being a recipe developer/food photographer/blogger. This recipe remains one of mine and my families favorite recipes, I make it pretty often and finally decided to redo the photos and it is so much seeing how far my photos have come. These are literally the first recipe I ever photographed and made back when I had 2 months off work because we had to close. I am very lucky to have unlocked a true passion and fun hobby that I positively love! So, let’s get to it – I can’t wait for you to try this recipe!

Instructions To Make Keto Vanilla Donuts

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F and grease your donut pan very well. It is easiest to use a silicone donut pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl you will whisk together your almond flour, monk fruit, baking powder, and salt until well combined.
  3. In a separate medium mixing bowl mix together your malted butter, almond milk, vanilla extract, and eggs.
  4. Pour your wet mixture into your dry mixture and stir until well incorporated – you should have no clumps left. Transfer your batter into your donut pan. Each cavity should be 3/4 full.
  5. Bake in your preheated oven for 16-18 minutes or until golden brown. Once out of the oven, let cool COMPLETLEY before removing from your donut pan.
  6. Let’s make our donut glaze! Mix together all of your glaze ingredients, adding in your cream or water by the tbs until a dippable texture is achieved.
  7. Once your donuts have cooled, removed them from your pan. Dip your rounded tops into your glaze and place on a cooling rack until your glaze is set and enjoy!

Frequently Asked Questions About Vanilla Donuts

What can I use instead of a donut pan?

If you do not have a donut pan, you can use a muffin tin with a rolled up ball of tin foil in the middle so you can still get that donut hole in the middle!

Do baked donuts taste the same as fried donuts?

The texture is more compact or ‘cakey’ and the color is also much pale. However, I personally enjoy a baked donut more than a fried one – plus it save calories.

How do I store homemade baked donuts?

Store these donuts in an airtight container on your counter for up to 5 days, or in an airtight container in your fridge for up to 8 days.

Can I freeze baked donuts?

Absolutely! This recipe freezes very well. Freeze in an airtight container and they should keep for 4-6 months.
