A good donut can stick in your mind, and I have a feeling this maple bacon donut will stay on yours.
These donuts have great rise and best of all, they’re low carb! I’m just so excited about this recipe.
I’ve always liked this combination. Salty, smokey bacon and sweet maple syrup is honestly a magical combination. I love Choczero‘s maple pecan syrup for this – it’s always a favorite.
The choux pastry method for these maple bacon donuts
To get the fluffier texture from this dough, I used the choux pastry method, where I cooked the dough with heat before baking, so the donuts would get the appropriate rise.
With ingredients like almond flour, and coconut flour, you still don’t the rise you’d get from plain flour, but the extra effort in these is SO worth it.
They result in a fluffy donut with a little help from baking powder.
Tools for keto donuts
For this recipe, I used a donut pan to get the perfect donut shape.
I also used a piping bag to pipe out the dough evenly.
These tools are extremely helpful, and will make sure you get a beautiful looking maple bacon donut!
I hope you have a fun time making this! Be sure to pin the recipe and save it for later.Print
