Say goodbye to feeling guilty about eating dessert once and for all with these spiced keto donuts with maple glaze.
The savory seasonings of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and allspice shine through in this delicious, keto-friendly recipe.
A creamy maple glaze pulls the flavors together into a rich indulgence that has you beating back those carb cravings with ease. We love these keto donuts for a keto breakfast food, a keto snack, or keto dessert.
After your batch is baked, let them cool and then glaze. Pop them in the freezer for a few hours on a parchment paper-lined cookie sheet. Then, stack them in a freezable container and put them in your deep freeze. Now, you have what we call a 'carb craving emergency plan'.
The next time a carb craving strikes, you just need to remember to go look in the freezer. Your delicious spiced keto donuts with maple glaze will be there waiting for you, ready to beat back those carb cravings once and for all. Now that's what we call sustainable keto 🙀.
Packed With Powerhouse Ingredients
Now, let's talk about the anti-inflammatory ingredients that are packed inside these spiced keto donuts with maple glaze. We'll start with the coconut flour.
Coconut flour is packed full of beneficial nutrients, antioxidants, and is an excellent source of fiber. Even better, coconut flour contains MCT's. Medium-chain triglycerides are different from long-chain because they are absorbed directly through the portal vein and rapidly converted to ketones. This means you'll get a great energy boost from these donuts. You can even use MCT oil instead of the avocado oil in this recipe to boost the energy-giving benefits even higher.
The cinnamon in these spiced keto donuts is loaded with antioxidants. Cinnamon has been used since ancient times for its many medicinal properties. To name a few, cinnamon has anti-inflammatory properties, may improve sensitivity to insulin, may lower blood sugar levels, may cut the risk of heart disease, and much more.
Then, we add in nutmeg, cloves, and allspice. All of which have been studied for various medicinal purposes.
Here's the point: This is a dessert you can feel good about eating. Say goodbye to guilt over eating dessert once and for all.
What Sugar Substitute Should I Use?
For the softest insides, we recommend using BochaSweet. However, erythritol, which is more widely available, will also work. Erythritol will leave a bit of a crust on the donuts, but it's barely noticeable. Our favorite erythritol blend is Lakanto's Monk Fruit Blend.
Our sugar substitute of choice is BochaSweet and there's good reason for this!
BochaSweet is extracted from the Kabocha pumpkin which has been a staple in the Japanese diet for centuries. Consuming BochaSweet on a daily basis helps to support longevity and supports healthy blood sugar levels.
Even better? It tastes almost exactly like real sugar. There's no thin flavor or metallic aftertaste. I think most of us are looking for something that tastes amazing because only a full, satisfying taste is going to work over the long-term.
So, if we are going to go to all the work to make these keto parfaits so we can please our tastebuds AND stick to our keto diet. Well, we want the result to taste GOOD not... just 'meh' and unsatisfying. For this reason plus the health benefits, we reach for BochaSweet every time.

Spiced Keto Donuts With Maple Glaze
- ⅓ cup heavy cream or coconut cream
- ⅓ cup water
- 3 Tablespoons Avocado Oil
- 3 eggs
- ¾ cup sugar substitute
- 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 Tablespoons ground cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- ¼ teaspoon ground cloves
- ¼ teaspoon ground allspice
- 1 cup coconut flour 113 g
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ¾ teaspoon xanthan gum
- ¾ teaspoon salt
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
- Prepare donut pan by generously greasing it.
- Mix the coconut flour mixture into the wet mixture until completely combined. Allow mixture to rest for 5 minutes. The batter will thicken considerably.
- Then, divide the batter between ten cups in your donut pan. The donuts will rise as they bake.
- Bake at 325 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes before removing from the pan.
For the Maple Glaze:
- In a small bowl, combine all ingredients and whisk or blend until sugar substitute is completely dissolved. You may heat the ingredients in the microwave if the sugar substitute isn’t dissolving at room temperature. Drizzle the glaze over your cooled donuts and enjoy.
