Keto Recipe: Delicious Chocolate Donuts

Keto Recipes > Dessert

All these posts about treats just make me want more! Here’s another favorite of mine that ended up being a daily affair, and a staple in my diet. Two good things at once? It almost seems too good to be true – but it’s not 🙂

These donuts seriously pack a punch in taste, nutrition, and the guilt. Made from protein powder, you’d expect a consistency to that of a piece of cardboard but it’s the secret of egg whites that really take it to a whole new level. Each bite you take will actually make you cringe from THINKING you are cheating, but in reality you’re definitely not!
Chocolate Donuts Ready

Time to get down to business, let’s start up the donut factory and crank these suckers out!

The Preparation

  • 1/2 Cup of Ground Almonds
  • 3 Eggs, separated
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Tsp Baking powder
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla
  • 1/4 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp Pure cocoa powder
  • 1/2 Cup of Splenda
  • 2 Tbsp Melted butter
  • 2 Scoops 100% Casein Protein Powder (I prefer chocolate, but you can use any flavor you fancy)
  • 2 Tbsp Heavy Cream (or Almond Milk)

How Can This Get Even Better?

  • Pecans or Walnuts
  • Make them into Waffles
  • Da Vinci Sugar Free Maple Syrup
  • Whipped Heavy Cream

The Execution

  • Preheat over to 350° F
  • Whip egg whites until they have stiff peaks (this is the most important part, and will ensure you get a great fluffy consistency)
  • Combine the egg yolks, Splenda, butter in a bowl and whisk until well mixed.
  • Combine all the dry ingredients and mix them well.
  • Gently (I mean REALLY gently) fold the wet ingredients into the whipped egg whites.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients, while mixing.
  • Fill the donut pan 3/4 of the way full on each mold.
  • Bake for 15 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  • In separate bowl, combine casein powder and heavy cream until it is thick.
  • Pour the mixture over the donuts when they have cooled down a bit.
  • Nom nom, enjoy the guilt-free panic attack!

 

Gluten Free Donuts
I prefer to wait until they have cooled until I start to ice them, but if you really dug yourself into the hole of temptation – use the icing as a dipping sauce on those warm donuts!  They’re great warm or cold, iced or not. If you don’t have a donut pan, you can always use a cupcake tin or even a bread pan. If you use that, then they won’t exactly be donuts (rather they’ll be cake) but it’s still one hell of a treat. Just make sure you are rationing them out because they’re seriously addictive. The recipe will yield about 8 donuts, and they each have 4.5g net carbs. Breakfast, afternoon snack, it even stacks enough protein to be a post workout meal – it can be anything you want. It’s versatile, and if you’re thinking what I’m thinking, it can be made into an evil-ly tasty bacon and cheese donut sandwich.
