We used almond flour to make these keto donuts. We love the mild taste and sweetness the almond flour adds to bake goods. While we do bake with coconut flour, almond flour remains our favorite.

Can I use an egg replacer?
I haven’t tried using an egg replacer in this keto cinnamon sugar donuts recipe because of the amount of eggs that it calls for. I have had others comment on similar recipes that chia egg and flax egg worked well, but they didn’t rise as much.
Working with almond flour
A note about using almond flour – It’s NOT a 1-to-1 for other flours, like coconut flour, so it reacts differently in recipes. It’s best stored in the refrigerator or freezer if you’re not going to use it up in a week or two. ALWAYS SPOON your almond flour into your measuring cup, unless otherwise noted.
Always bring Almond meal or flour to room temperature before baking with it. If you use it cold, it’ll absorb more of the liquid and your batter will be thicker than it should be. And remember, because it’s made from almonds, it can go rancid, so keep track of when you opened the bag.
