Hi, I’m looking forward to making this recipe, however since I don’t have xanthan gum, I read that arrowroot is a good substitute, which I do have. Do you know the ratio of xanthan gum to arrowroot? Thanks!

The ratio is 1:1

I think yeasty was a typo? Did you mean tastey?

Your description says they are “yeasty” but there is no yeast. Is there supposed to be yeast or does it just taste like yeast? Would love to try this recipe. Thank you!

There is no yeast in this recipe we just think it gives off the texture of a yeast donut

Thanks for the recipe. Super good. Even better the second day once the glaze has really soaked in. I ended up doubling the donut recipe to get 6 donuts because 4 is a strange number. I didn’t double the glaze part, and there was plenty. Next time I will not make the glaze until the donuts come out of the oven. I made it too early, and it crystallized while waiting for them to be ready to glaze. I may get myself a second donut pan and triple the recipe another time.

Made these Keto Krispy Kreme’s this weekend. They disappeared rather quickly. Very satisfying.

Could these just be piped onto a paper or silicon lined baking sheet? From the pictures it appears there dough is thick and does not spread.

It is a very thick dough but it is our recommendation to use a donut pan because they could come out a bit wonky otherwise

I made these into donut holes as I didn’t have a donut pan. Turned out great but all I taste is coconut. What other oil can you recommend? I find keto desserts are overwhelmingly coconut flavoured.

you can use any other Keto approved oil you’d like.
