What tools will I need to make the Churro Keto Donuts?
One of the first things I grabbed was a donut baking silicon mold, which you can find on Amazon or any local baking store!
I really enjoy baking with the silicone donut molds because once you cool off the donuts, you simply pop the donuts out of the mold and place on a rack to either glaze or add the sugar and cinnamon! Check out the latest prices here.
After baking your donuts and they have cooled enough to remove them from the molds, placing them on a cooling rack for glazing or sugaring makes it so easy! It also is great for photos, if you like sharing your food masterpieces. Check out the latest prices here.
Having a pastry brush on hand is always great for many different recipes. After baking these donuts, you are going to want to use a pastry brush to coat the melted butter on top of the donuts. Check out the latest prices here.

How to make Churro Keto Donuts
What you will need for this recipe is almond flour, monk fruit (some to be baked into the donut and some for sugar coating afterwards), baking powder, cinnamon, salt, butter, almond milk, vanilla extract, eggs and almond extract.
First start off with preheating your oven to 350 degrees. Take your large bowl and mix together all of your dry ingredients (almond flour, monk fruit, baking powder, salt and cinnamon). In a separate bowl, mix together all of your wet ingredients (melted butter, almond milk, vanilla extract, eggs and almond extract.) Once both mixtures are mixed, combine both and mix.
Once both mixtures are combined, the next step will be to fill your donut molds. Before filling the molds you will need to spray/grease the molds. I normally use coconut oil spray, but you can use whatever you have to grease the molds. Fill all the molds. This recipe yields 12 donuts, so if you have a 6-donut mold, you will need to bake them in two batches.
Once your donut molds are filled you will want to place the mold on a baking sheet and place in your pre-heated oven for 30 minutes. (Note, every oven is different – so I would check them around the 20 minute mark and go from there. They are going to want to look a golden brown).
While your donuts are baking you will want to make your cinnamon and sugar coating. Add in your monk fruit and cinnamon into a small bowl, set aside.
Once your donuts are done baking, make sure you pull out of the oven and let them cool completely. (Normally 10-15 minutes will do it.) Once cooled, start popping each donut out of their molds and place on cooling rack. Melt butter. From there, you are going to want to take each donut and using a pastry brush* dip the brush in the butter and evenly distribute onto one of the donuts. Once the donut has the butter on it, you are then going to want to dip the donut into your cinnamon and “sugar” mixture. Place on cooling rack. Repeat until all of your donuts are coated.
*note if you do not have a pastry brush, you can use a spoon to put the melted butter on top of the donut. Avoid dipping the donut into the butter, unless you want your donut to suck up all that butter!
