LOVE these donuts. We have made them twice (on separate occasions) - the first time reading through this recipe (and they were amazing) and the second time watching the YouTube video with the recipe (and something was missing). That’s when we realized the YouTube video doesn’t include the baking powder! Just as an FYI to those that may not know - and if someone has mentioned this before and it’s common knowledge, disregard, ha. (This very well may be, but we watched on an iPhone so comments weren’t readily available.)
Thanks for the awesome recipes, Joe - we can’t wait to try more.

Thank you for mentioning that the YouTube video did not show the Baking Powder. I would have missed that!
Made these with cinnamon added to mix because I have never liked sugared donuts. I used the mini donut plates in my waffle maker and they came out brilliant. Think I got 20 mini ones out of it. Another awesome recipe, thank you!

I have not tried a recipe of yours that hasn’t been delicious! First the mug cinnamon roll, then the 1 minute choco chip cookies and the 1 minute brownie. And now this! Delicious!

Joe, this recipe is a go-to for myself and my partner and I’m so grateful. It’s so straightforward to make and virtually foolproof! Thank you!!
I just started on keto and it’s been challenging eating such rich food- these doughnuts are delicious, filling and so easy to make.
These are so yummy and I’m not a baker at all - they’re really just that easy!
I didn’t have a lot of almond flour left so I subbed in a touch of banana protein powder to thicken the batter and they turned out great :)
Thank you for an easy, tasty recipe with ingredients I always have in the house!
Thanks for this quick and super easy recipe. These satisfied my craving For something sweet, while staying keto.
Just made them for the first time. Both the hubby and I were so
Happy yo have a donut and they are delicious. Might experiment with different flavors.
just made these, still cooling, but I had to try one hot out of the oven... delicious!! I didn’t have a donut pan, but it was the perfect amount for my madeleine pan... will definitely make again
I made these last night. I accidentally put more vanilla in it but it was still good. I thought I would not like these but it was surprisingly good. A few days ago I ate a bunch of carb loaded doughnuts so this really was a big help today to wean me off carbs again :) Thanks.
Made these today, amazing! Thanks, love.
Are these donuts also gluten free?
Fantastic and easy and I use as a base to mix up with choc chips, icing with a flavour or even a lemon drizzle! My kids devour them so they have become a regular weekly bake.
Cinnamon donuts are my favourite – never though there would be a keto option. thank you... these really scratch the itch.

Just made them, they're cooling. They smell amazing! I sampled a tiny bit of the dough and it was delicious. I did have to bake mine much longer (I overfilled because I only got 5 donuts out of the batch instead of 6), they finally started to golden after about 10 additional minutes of baking. I love all of Joe's recipes. I usually make his pumpkin donuts but thought I'd change it up this time.

If I substitute Pyure granular sweetener for the Swerve granular sweetener do I still use the same measurement (1/3 cup) for this donut recipe?
