Toppings (Cinnamon Sugar):

Toppings (Glaze):


  • Pre-heat your oven to a low temperature, then shut-off.
  • In a small bowl, add your yeast, sugar and warm water. Set aside to bloom for about 3min.
  • Meanwhile, using a hand mixer, in another large bowl, beat together your butter and sugar until smooth and fluffy.
  • Add your egg, sour cream(warm in the microwave for about 15s before adding), vanilla extract and sweetener, blend again until smooth.
  • Add your yeast/water mixture to this bowl as well and stir gently.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients (almond flour, vital wheat gluten, coconut flour and salt) and stir with a spoon until a rough dough begins to form.
  • Knead with your hands for ~2 min and then form into a rough ball and place in greased bowl, cover with saran wrap.
  • Place the covered dough in the previously warmed oven and let it rest for about 10min (it won't rise during this time).
  • Roll or press the dough out to about 1-1.5inch thickness on a flat surface covered with parchment paper. (The dough won't rise as much as traditional dough so be aware of this when choosing the thickness).
  • Using a large wine glass or donut cutter, cut circles out of the dough. Use a smaller shot glass, circular cookie cutter or bottle lid to cut out the middles.
  • Use the excess dough scraps to create more donuts by forming the pieces back together and rolling out again. (You can save the donut holes if you want!)
  • Place the donuts gently onto a parchment lined baking tray (I rolled mine directly on a flat cookie sheet so I didn't have to transfer them after).
  • Cover with saran wrap and place somewhere warm again for 30min to rise (you can pre-heat your oven for a few minutes then shut it off and place the sheet inside -just don't make it too hot!)
  • After 30min, remove the baking sheet of donuts and pre-heat your oven to 375*
  • Once the oven has pre-heated, bake the donuts at 375* for ~10-12min. *I recommend flipping them half way through to avoid browning too much on one side.
  • Let the donuts cool for about 10min. Meanwhile melt some butter in a small bowl and combine your sweetener and cinnamon on a plate OR mix together powdered sweetener and cream to make a glaze.
  • Brush the donuts with butter and coat in the mixture of cinnamon and granular sweeter OR glaze them by spooning the above glaze over the tops of the donuts.
  • Place them on a plate at room temperature to let the glaze set and then serve! Enjoy your keto yeast risen donuts!
