Pumpkin Spice Keto Donuts

October 25, 2018

Pumpkin Spice Keto Donuts

The lure of pumpkin spice is real. For all the reasons we love the season that gives us flame-tinged leaves and the chance to don full-length tights, crocheted sweaters, and scarves (without sweating), we crafted this sweet, spiced keto-friendly treat to remind us that we too can partake in the pleasures of autumn flavors without ditching our keto, primal, or other clean eating habits. 

These donuts have everything you’d expect from a traditional cake recipe: a tender and moist crumb from the egg white, butter, and pumpkin puree trifecta. The warm cinnamon-spiked finish encases each ring in a cozy hug and the granulated texture of the Swerve adds a slightly crunchy contrast to the yielding interior.

Our Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil Spray glues the topping to the donut, but some will inevitably come off on your fingers. Licking the sweet, cinnamon goodness off your fingers is one of the lingering pleasures these treats provide. Serve with coffee (we think black coffee provides just the right acidic counterpart to the sweet) and no napkins.

If you’re very strict keto, the carb count may be a bit high for you—at 11.7 net grams—but these can be fit into a flexible plan for those occasional moments when you want to splurge.
