    This keto donut recipe uses an instant pot to make donuts with classic flavors. No deep frying is even required! Cooking them in the pressure cooker gives these donuts a more spongy, moist texture.

    These instant pot donuts make for a delicious dessert, treat or snack for whenever that sweet tooth kicks in. They are perfect for anyone following a low carb diet as they will curb your donut cravings without all the unnecessary carbs and sugars. These low carb donuts are great to have handy for the whole family to snack on throughout the week since they are low in sugars. The recipe makes 9 donuts, but you can easily increase the amounts if you would like to make a larger batch.

    To sweeten these donuts, in this recipe we use monk fruit sweetener. This is a great alternative to sugar for anyone who is limiting their sugar intake, on a low carb diet and even diabetics. While being Keto friendly, another benefit to using monk fruit sweetener is that it will not spike your glucose level.

    What is an Instant Pot?

    An Instant Pot is a multi-cooker which can be used to cook almost anything in it, even sweet things! The benefits of an Instant Pot are endless but they are mainly great for two reasons; they save time and space in the kitchen! They can be used instead of multiple other separate kitchen appliances and they can also be used as slow cookers, making meal prep a lot easier and quicker. You can simply set the timer and go about the day without thinking about the meal being cooked. In the case of this recipe, the hot steam within the Instant Pot makes the donuts go light and fluffy, which is the texture you want your donuts to be.

    Protein Powder

    Protein powder is used to help these donuts rise and provide structural support since this recipe doesn’t contain eggs. A brand we recommend is the ZeroCarb Protein Powder by IsoPure, but you can use any low carb protein powder you prefer.

    Silicone Donut Molds

    The doughnut batter is pressed into silicone donut molds. The molds are placed on the trivet so they don’t burn on the bottom and to allow for even baking. Each mold is to be filled 3/4 of the way as otherwise the donut mixture might overflow. We prefer using silicone donut molds as they make the process of removing the donuts from the molds easier.

    Sugar Free Chocolate

    These doughnuts are covered with a chocolate glaze made from ChocZero sugar free chocolate chips and coconut oil. By microwaving the ChocZero with the coconut oil, you will achieve delicious melted chocolate ready for the donuts to be dipped in. The coconut oil helps to thin out the chocolate to make it easier to dip and stick onto the donuts to form a glaze.

    Tips for Best Instant Pot Donuts

    • If you don’t have access to whey protein powder, you can use coconut flour instead and you will still achieve the same fluffy and moist texture.
    • Allow the donuts to cool for at least 10 minutes before removing the donuts from the donut molds.
    • The homemade donuts will be wet when you pull them out of the instant pot. This will seem strange but they will dry out to a nice spongy texture by the next day. To help avoid this, each donut mold can be wrapped with aluminum foil.
