  • Chocolate Donuts
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup full-fat coconut milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 cup coconut flour
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/3 cup Swerve Sweetener
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • dash of salt
  • 1/4 cup avocado oil or coconut oil
  • Chocolate Glaze
  • ¾ cup heavy cream or full-fat coconut milk
  • ¹⁄₃ cup Swerve Confectioners or powdered sugar if you aren't sugar free!
  • 2 ounces unsweetened chocolate finely chopped
  • Seeds scraped from 1 vanilla bean or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2-3 teaspoons of culinary grade matcha green tea powder


  • Preheat oven to 325F and grease a regular-size donut tin.
  • In a mixer, combine eggs, coconut milk, and vanilla extract. Blend just enough to mix.
  • Add almond flour, coconut flour, cocoa powder, Swerve confectioners, baking powder, and salt.
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Add oil and blend until well combined.
  • Using a bag with a hole cut in the corner squeeze the batter into prepared donut pans not quite to the top. (or spoon the mixture onto the pan)
  • Bake 18 to 22 minutes
  • Remove and let cool 10 minutes on a wire rack.
  • Flip donuts onto a wire rack to cool thoroughly. Repeat with remaining batter until gone.
  • For the GLAZE
  • Add chocolate, coconut milk, and Swerve in a double boiler. (Alternatively, use a heat-safe bowl on top of a pot of simmering water)
  • Heat on low, stirring, just until the chocolate melts.
  • Remove from the heat.
  • Add the vanilla and stir well to combine.
  • Dip the cooled donuts in the glaze, they are a bit fragile, so you need to be careful. *see notes
  • Using a hand held mesh screen strainer, sift the culinary matcha onto the donuts. I used about 1/4-1/2 teaspoon per two donuts but you can use the amount you like depending on your taste.
  • Store extras in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.


Because the donuts are gluten free they are more fragile than wheat flour donuts. When I dipped these donuts in chocolate I used a five finger grasp (my whole hand!) and dipped the top of the donut into the chocolate - its messy. My fingers also got chocolate on them, so this tells you how good a grip I had on the donut. Alternatively, if you don't want chocolate on your fingers, drizzle the chocolate on top; but make sure to put a plate or bowl underneath to catch all the extra chocolate run off!
With only 2 grams of net carbs per donut, you can enjoy a few even if you are following a low-carb, keto, Paleo or THM diet plan.
