Cereal Keto Donuts (Magic Spoon, Gluten Free)

Anyone down for a fun cool recipe? I know I am! Who said that cereal and fun recipes were just for kids? These donuts are the proof of that and probably Homero will be proud of this recipe... which is also secretly healthy.

A better version for you type of donuts. And by the title you know that this will be deliciously gluten free, high protein and keto.

How is that even possible? Keto donuts?

The key here is on the ingredients. Instead of using wheat flour we are using a low carb version and with a higher nutritional profile, coconut flour. My main star of many of my recipes because on how easy it's to use in recipes and it fiber content. This flour substitute is great to create low carb recipes.

Another thing that we are replacing is sugar and vegetable oils. These two ingredients are one of the top inflammatory ingredients out there because of the metabolic effect that has in our bodies and the quality, most vegetable oils (canola, soy & sunflower).

As a sugar replacement my staple is monk fruit, erythritol and allulose. Those are my top picks but the one that I usually use is monk fruit, from Lakanto since it get cheaper by using the code: PURELYHL, it gets te price lower in any of Lakanto's products.

Instead of frying these donuts, which is typically for most regular donuts, we are baking them in some donut molds that I got a while back at Amazon. They are made some silicone and they are very easy to use, there's no need to grease the dish before pouring the dough and they come out very easily.

Also, ghee or butter. In the case of this recipe I used Gold Nugget Ghee, grass fed and I use the one with turmeric for extra anti-inflammatory properties and flavor. With the combination of Vanilla Whey Protein, also grass-fed. It's such a great boost for liver health and it's natural detox support.

Whey promotes the production of one of the most powerful antioxidants produced by our bodies, AKA glutathione. Ghee is a great source of conjugated linoleic acids fatty acids (CLA), short fatty acids that both have been shown to be beneficial as prevention certain types of cancers and even reducing inflammation!

So yeah, these donuts go beyond the regular donut and they taste absolutely incredible! The topping and the main star of this recipe is of course, Magic Spoon Cereal, I picked the fruity flavor and they turned out perfect!

This cereal is AMAZING.

Gluten Free


Low Carb

Grain Free

And the variety adapts to any preference. A must better version for yourself cereal, and a major throwback to our childhood and those mornings that involved cereal and cartoons. Well, in this case what about some Netflix series and keto cereal donuts? Who will join me?

This recipe is great for meal prepping as well, you can store them in the freezer and makes 8 donuts. One donut for everyday, plus one day of double donut... or sharing, maybe? But they are really good to share (ha!).

Besides cereal, we are topping these donuts with creamy almond based cream cheese, at first the main idea are to bake them with the cereal already on top but since the recipe requires baking at 370F, I thought that the cereal will get a little bit burned. Still, it was a great choice to add it at last!

For this recipe would need:

1 mixing bowl

1 measuring cup

1 mixing spoon

1 silicone mold for donuts of 9

Happy baking everyone!
