Keto Pumpkin Chocolate Donuts 

These keto pumpkin chocolate baked donuts were fantastic! They are super soft and moist with a sweet, light pumpkin flavour. A perfect fall breakfast treat.

I've used a similar recipe to this to make a few of my other donuts recipes such as my; Simple Keto Glazed Donuts, Keto Maple Bacon Donuts and my Lemon Chia Seed Donuts.

This is because this recipe always turns out great! This texture is very donut-like and they're just super cute to look at.

I wanted to try a keto pumpkin donut to go with the fall season. I did use a touch of molasses in the recipe but that's completely optional. It just gives them a hint of brown sugar flavour. You can also use swerve brown or some sukrin brown to get a similar brown sugar flavour.

I always start 80% of my dessert recipes with a base of almond flour and coconut flour and this keto baked donut recipe was no exception.

The almond flour helps to give a rich flavour to the donut while the coconut flour lightens it a bit.

Almond flour tends to be better for taste but is denser. Coconut flour tends to be better for creating light and “fluffy” desserts but doesn't have as nice of a flavour as almond flour.

Both combined together create the best keto desserts in my opinion. But I always vary their amounts depending on the recipe.

We also add xanthan gum to these Keto Pumpkin Chocolate Donuts.

Xanthan gum is a binder. It helps everything stick together as gluten in white flour usually does. It also provides elasticity and adds a bit of chewiness to gluten-free desserts. It's a really awesome ingredient if you haven't tried it yet!

To sweeten these donuts, I used a combination of Truvia and some swerve because I was out of my usual powdered monkfruit/erythritol sweetener at the time but you are definitely able to use just one sweetener if you don't have both.

Just follow the tip I wrote beside the sweetener in the recipe. 

I used almond milk for the “milk” portion of this donut recipe but you can also use light or regular coconut milk, heavy cream and/or light cream to replace this. Heavy cream will give you the most rich donuts but will also increase the total calories so just be aware of that.

Tools I Used To Make Keto Pumpkin Chocolate Donuts

  • Low Carb Substitution Guide – This is totally optional but if you like my recipes, I now have a $5 guide available with all of the substitutions I use to create every recipe on my site. You can use this to convert old traditional recipes and create new keto recipes! You can purchase it here and/or read more if you are interested. 🙂 I appreciate your support so much guys!
  •  Nutritional Food Scale – AKA my best friend. This little buddy has been with me for over 4 years and never fails. Perfect measurements and only needs the batteries replaced maybe once a year!
  • Donut Pan
  • Spatula 
  • Piping Bag
  • Whisk
  • Mixing Bowls

Tips For Making Low Carb, Gluten Free Chocolate Pumpkin Donuts

  • Make sure to let these cool fully before trying to remove them from the pan and drizzle them with chocolate as keto desserts tend to fall apart more easily when hot but set quite a bit once fully cooled.
  • If you don't have a donut pan, you can definitely use a muffin pan for these as well!
  • To keep the calories low, use almond milk or unsweetened coconut milk for this recipe. To make the donuts richer and more flavourful, you can use heavy cream or light cream.
  • Molasses adds a brown sugar flavour but is optional, you can always use swerve brown or sukrin brown sweetener in place of part of the sweetener called for instead to get a similar flavour.
  • Store these donuts in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5-6 days, or freeze for later.
