Diabetes and doughnuts are like vinegar and water, but not when you find better ways to make them at home. Here are three combos I’ve tried this month and not only do they taste great, but they favor well on blood sugar control.
Option 1: Homemade, High-Protein Doughnuts
- 2 scoop of Vanilla Collagen Peptides
- 1/2 cup of flax meal
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
- 3 eggs
- 1 pinch of sea salt
- 1/2 tsp of gluten-free baking powder
- 1 tbsp of avocado oil or coconut oil
- 1/4 cup milk of your choice
- In 2 separate bowls mix the dry ingredients together and in a second bowl mix the eggs, milk, and oil for 30 seconds with a fork, or until well-mixed. You will need to melt the coconut oil first if that’s the fat you have on hand. Add the wet mix to the dry mix until you have a smooth batter.
- Fill doughnut baking sheets 3/4 full and bake for 10-15 minutes at 350F. Bake until cooked through, using a toothpick to check.
Option 2: Use Low-carb Baking Mixes (reducing cooking time when using a doughnut sheet by 5-8 minutes)
- Highkey Keto Blueberry Mix
- Good Dee’s Lemon Mix
- Lakanto Sugar-Free Blueberry Mix
- Keto & Co Banana Carmel Mix
- Simple Mills Almond Flour Pumpkin Mix
Option 3: Use Low-Carb Cake Mixes
- Swerve Vanilla Cake Mix
- Good Dee’s Cake Mix
- Keto & Co Chocolate Cake Mix
- Simple Mills Vanilla Cake Mix
