The AMAZING 10min Keto Cinnamon Sugar Donuts

keto cinnamon sugar donuts

I am honestly so impressed with how SIMPLE these keto cinnamon sugar donuts are to make, yet how perfect they turn out every time!

This recipe is ideal for 1-2 people. The donuts are not only tasty but they are very filling and full of protein and fibre to keep you full for hours!

Some Ingredients I’d like to Highlight: 

  • Almond & Coconut Flour – I use the Kirkland Costco brand of almond flour (I buy it in bulk on Amazon or at Costco itself occasionally) and this brand of coconut flour for this recipe. As I’ve noted in many of my past recipes, the brand of almond and coconut flour can affect the final outcome of the recipe because absorbency can vary depending on how the flour has been processed.
  • Vital Wheat Gluten – If you have questions about why I include this ingredient, I wrote an entire article on what it is and why I use Vital Wheat Gluten on my keto diet! I also included where to buy it, how many carbs it contains..and how to use it in different kinds of baking.
  • Truvia – I know use a monkfruit/erythritol blend in place of Truvia because I prefer the taste and it’s a bit more keto friendly! I use the SoNourished brand and it’s great!



Serves: 1-2

  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • 1 tbsp almond flour
  • 2 tbsp vital wheat gluten (do not sub! This is the protein extracted from bread that gives it it’s elasticity. It has virtually no carbs and works great in low-carb baking to give items a more traditional feel!)
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of baking soda
  • 1 tsp truvia*
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp + 1 tsp(65g) full fat sour cream


  • 1-2tsp melted coconut oil OR butter for brushing. 
  • 1 & 1/2 tbsp truvia*
  • 1/2-1 tsp cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 375*F.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a small bowl.
  3. Add the sour cream and stir until a dough forms, knead the dough for about 30s-1min.
  4. Roll the dough into 2 balls, flatten each slightly and place on a parchment lined/greased baking sheet.
  5. Use a piping bag tip or a bottle cap to punch out a hole in the center of each ball. (You can bake the extra piece as a donut hole as well!)
  6. Use your fingers to gently make the donut hole double the size it was.
  7. Brush the dough with a little butter or coconut oil(optional) and place in the oven.
  8. Bake for 7-10min(I like mine slightly under-cooked so I go for the 7min but you can bake it longer to cook it fully through!), *flip each donut half way through baking.*
  9. Remove from the oven and brush with the butter or coconut oil.
  10. Combine the cinnamon and truvia and dip each donut top until well coated. Serve warm with a side of coffee! Enjoy your delicious keto cinnamon sugar donuts 🙂

  1. thought id give this a second chance. you’re SURE you’ve got everything properly documented? because no way – there just isn’t enough moisture in this “dough” with all the dry ingredients. i even added an xtra tablespoon of sour cream and still couldn’t make anything resembling dough – just a crumbling mess. measured out all the ingredients – there’s just something missing here…i’ll bake it anyway but i can guarantee it’s going to be a very hard, dry biscuit – definitely nothing like a doughnut

  2. Mine were super sticky and did not rise at all. They were very small. Do you have a video of you preparing? I love to bake and wanted to try this until I get it right!!

  3. Not to be rude but while these a
    are sugar free and sound amazing they are NOT Keto. Ketogenic means that about 75% of the finished product’s calories will come from fat and 20% from protein (ideally). This would be great recipe for Atkins or South Beach but the presence of equal parts fat and protein means the body will simply use the protein from the almonds flour, gluten, and sour cream as a fuel source and as a result will only make a person in ketosis get fatter. I am only sharing this out of concern and love. Perhaps just call it low carb or deep fry it and eliminate the almond flour and gluten? I dunno. I understand the need for getting more clicks though, I do.

  4. I am allergic to tree nuts – Almond, Walnuts, all of them (not peanuts). What other flour can you sub for the almond in this recipe? We have a local store with an amazing assortment of flours.

  5. What is the best brand of coconut flour to use for this particular recipe? I am new at the low carb baking and am learning as I go. Any help is appreciated.

    Thank you so much!
    Love love your blog.


    1. Hi Karen! I apologize I am just getting back to many comments as fast as I can. I use coconut flour from bob’s red mill or buy in bulk from amazon.
