Apple Chai Donuts (Paleo & Keto)

If you are in the look for something for autumn without involving pumpkin then you might love these donuts! Taking the inspiration by the warm aromas and spices of chai tea to create a delicious apple chai donut.


I think that sometimes pumpkins gets most of the attention sometimes and we forget that apple is also on season! Hello apple pies and strudels! They are one of the best foods of the season and if you ask me, I prefer apple pies over pumpkin pies.


Both are still delicious but right in this case I tend to incline more to apple pie. But well, this Apple Chai Donut situation is totally unbeatable!


This donut is a total experience, the soft baked apple on top with a chai tea infused dough is just what I needed this season. A warm cozy and aromatic donut that will bring up all the vibes for the fall and would pair my almond milk at the same time.



We are using simple and clean ingredients

Coconut flour

Granulated monk fruit

Ghee

Whey protein

Apple

Chai tea

Eggs



So as you can see pretty basic ingredients! The whey here makes the donuts has a nicer fluffy consistency and the slightly brighter yellow color is because I used ginger turmeric ghee from Gold Nugget. My favorite ghee brand.



For sweetness you know that I love to use granulated monk fruit. It's low carb, natural, easy to use and doesn't leave me an aftertaste. You can also get a discount code when you use PURELYHL on your Lakanto's order.



These are also great for meal prep! It makes 9 donuts and they can be stored in the freezer inside a plastic bag. I stored mine for more than a week since I was in Mexico City and when I came back I just heated them in the microwave, oven or even my air fryer!


The steps are super simple and uncomplicated

  1. Preheat the oven at 350F.

  2. Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.

  3. Heat 1 cup of water and steep and brew your tea.

  4. Add the wet ingredients and mix well.

  5. Pour the mix into 9 donut molds.

  6. Top with chopped apples.

  7. Bake for 25 minutes.

  8. Let them cool down and top with extra granulated monk fruit, optional!




If you are into baking and donuts I highly suggest you getting some donut baking molds, I got mine on Amazon and it's great and easy to use! Such a great way to create your won healthier and delicious donuts at home!



In this case these donuts are

  • Low carb

  • Keto

  • Gluten Free

  • Nut free

  • Grain free

  • Soy free


These will be made a few more times since we have plenty of delicious apples that someone was kind enough to send us! My mom enjoyed these with her coffee and my dad as his after meal dessert!



Well, for sure this recipe is a keeper! Don't forget to save, pin, bookmark or share this recipe with your friends and family! They are going to love this epic donut experience!


With love,

María
