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



  • 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)

Swerve Vanilla Mix + Simple Mills Icing

Option 3: Use Low-Carb Cake Mixes

Blueberry Mix + Simple Mills Icing and Blueberries

Looking for icing? Try this keto icing or just use melted coconut manna with some Lilly’s chocolate chips.
