These coconut flour low carb donuts will help keep you on track. Lightly spiced and sweetened, these frosted baked cake donuts are just enough to satify your sugar cravings.
It was time to dust off my donut pan and make some Sunday morning donuts. With all the summer outings and parties, I have veered a bit off my normal low carb diet.
The kids are back in school and the summer has reached an end. So, I need to get back on track before falling into the temptation of the holidays.
These are lightly spiced low carb baked cake donuts. I didn’t want the spice to be too strong, so I only added about half a teaspoon spice for nine donuts.
