Cinnamon Glazed Donuts (Keto)

I am currently obsessed with these cinnamon glazed donuts (Keto style). Fall is right around the corner and those donuts from the pumpkin patch are going to be all too enticing and having an alternative is just what I needed. I adapted this recipe from (Caroline's Keto Kitchen).

Here's what you'll need: (donuts)
2 eggs
½ cup almond flour
¼ cup or 1 packet of Quest cinnamon crunch protein powder (any keto friendly protein powder should work)
2 tbsp coconut flour
¼ cup erithyrtol, granulated (sweetner)
¼ tsp salt
2 oz cream cheese, softened
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup water

Glaze (from Caroline's Keto Kitchen):
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup erithrytol (sweetner)
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp vanilla

1) Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. 

2) Separate 2 eggs. Set aside the egg yolks. Whip the egg whites to stiff peaks with a hand mixer and set aside.

3) In a large mixing bowl, mix together the dry ingredients (almond flour, cinnamon crunch protein powder, coconut flour, erithrytol, salt, softened cream cheese and baking powder).

4) Add wet ingredients (egg yolks, vanilla and whipping cream/water). Stir until mixed very well. 

5) Gently combine stiff egg whites with the mixture. Stir gently until mixture is all one color.

6) Spray a muffin tin and fill 1/3 of the way up OR Spray two donut pans with coconut spray and fill each mold about 2/3 of the way.

7) Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned. (Longer for a muffin tin) Let donuts cool in pan for 5 minutes, and then take them out of their molds and set on a paper towel. If you used a muffin tin use a rounded piece to cut out holes.

8) Melt butter in a frying pan and then add the erithrytol. Once the sweetner is fully melted, add the heavy whipping cream and vanilla, and stir over heat for roughly 5 minutes. 

9) Remove glaze from heat. If you want a thicker glaze, wait at least 45 minutes to apply glaze. If you prefer a thinner glaze, dip each donut once in the frying pan, applying glaze to both sides. If you like donuts very sweet, you can dip each donut twice. If you are not a fan of sweet donuts, you can spoon glaze over donuts rather than dipping them in.

Enjoy your delicious donuts!!!

I hope you enjoy these low carb / keto friendly glazed cinnamon donuts! I sure know I'll be making another batch soon!

Keto (Low Carb) Cheesecake Recipe

I've recently joined the Keto Diet club! Although its been quite an adjustment, it has definitely been worth it. I am two weeks in and have lost 12lbs already! I find myself eating WAY less food, yet I am completely satisfied and don't feel at all like I'm starving myself. However, I definitely have a sweet tooth and wanted to find something low-carb to satisfy it. I went searching for a Keto friendly cheesecake recipe and actually found quite a few but none that worked with what I had and what I wanted to use. So I mixed three different recipes and came up with this one.

This cheesecake turned out as a dense (almost tart like) rich cheesecake that definitely satisfied my sweet-tooth!

*To be sure you track how much each slice is double check with all the specific ingredients you end up using* 
Mine ended up being about 3-4 carbs per slice - plus maybe 1 more for the added strawberries.

I hope you enjoy! I am still perfecting this recipe and if I make any changes will update the recipe on this post! ENJOY!
