These cake donuts are baked making the recipe easy peasy. Seriously, if you haven’t tried making keto donuts and you also happen to love strawberries then this recipe is for you.

Using sour cream in the batter of these donuts ensures they have a moist, tender crumb. I also added fresh chopped strawberries because I really wanted to pack this recipe with strawberry flavor. 

The use of a combination of almond and coconut flour plays a role in getting the perfect cake donut texture.  If you are worried that the coconut flour can overpower the strawberry flavor, trust me that’s not the case.

To make these strawberry keto donuts you’ll need to start by preheating your oven and making sure your donut molds and well greased.

Then it’s simply a matter of mixing your dry and wet ingredients together. I use an electric mixer to ensure the batter is well incorporated. 

First, you’ll combine the almond and coconut flour, sugar substitute, baking powder, salt in a large bowl. To this mixture, you’ll then add the sour cream, finely chopped strawberries, melted butter, whole eggs, and extract and combine well.

To easily add the batter into the donut molds I recommend using a pastry bag or placing the donut batter into a large ziplock bag that one of the corners has a small cut. 

I like using silicone molds but a non-stick donut baking pan will also work. In both instances, you will need to grease the cavity of the molds. 

In order to ensure even baking I place my silicone molds on top of a cookie sheet, this also makes it easier when it comes time to take it out of the oven. 

After the donuts are baked and cooled you’ll proceed to make the icing and then allow the icing to set by placing your donuts on a baking rack.

Sugar-free Sweetener Options

As far as which sugar-substitute to use for this keto sour cream cake donuts, I have a few recommendations. If you are regular on our site you know I’m a huge fan of Lakanto Monk Fruit. 

his is because the texture Lakanto is spot on and since there is barely any aftertaste. It is a monk fruit and erythritol blend.

I love that Lakanto Monk Fruit is all-natural and it gets its sweetness from antioxidants called mogrosides, instead of fructose or sucrose. And it has zero calories and zero glycemic impact. 

I’m also partial to Swerve another erythritol blend.  It works well in this keto donut recipe and is a great choice if you are looking for a sugar substitute that has no bitter aftertaste and measures just like sugar.

It’s also a sugar substitute that browns and caramelizes just like sugar. Swerve is made from ingredients found in select fruits and starchy root vegetables and contains no artificial ingredients, preservatives or flavors.

Like Lankanto, Swerve has a 0 % impact on blood sugar.

If you are a fan of stevia, you can use the stevia and erythritol-based brand Pyure in this recipe. However, it’s important to note that if you are using Pyure you will want to use 1/2 the amount called for in this recipe since it’s a much sweeter option.

Lastly, if you cannot easily find a more natural sugar substitute you can also use Splenda with great success. You will want to use the Splenda that has a bulking agent.

It’s the one that comes in larger bags. I don’t recommend Splenda Bake because it’s actually half sugar half sucralose product and will be too high in carbs to be considered keto-friendly. 

You will need a confectioner’s sugar substitute for the donut icing. Thankfully, both Lakanto and Swerve have great ones.

Strawberry OOOFlavor

Talking about icing you may have noticed that I added a couple of drops of oooflavor fresh strawberry concentrate to the icing. All of their extracts and concentrates are unsweetened and can safely be enjoyed while doing keto.

Can you make these donuts without the extract? Sure, but if like me you are wanting a real boost in strawberry flavor then I recommend you get your hands on some. Otherwise, feel free to substitute with vanilla extract

Sugar-free Strawberry Jam Sauce

Some would argue that adding a drizzle of sugar-free strawberry jam sauce is totally unnecessary. Well, tell that to my family.

When I asked them what they thought about the idea they all agreed that it would be a welcomed addition and then proceeded to add more to their donuts. 

As a plus, you’ll have a little leftover to spread on your favorite keto bread, so there’s that. The recipe only calls for a tablespoon per donut but you can certainly use less or leave out altogether. If you opt to not use you can reduce the carbs by 1 net carb per donut.

Randy and I came to the keto diet looking at it from a Christian perspective. As believers, we live our lives supported by God’s grace.

So when the Holy Spirit led us to combine our Christian faith and the keto diet, we did so in hopes of finding lasting transformation.

Randy had been a diabetic for over 15 years and he was dealing with the consequences of this disease. I was a survivor of the Guillan Barre Syndrome and was fighting fibromyalgia and chronic sciatica.

To say we needed God’s intervention is putting it mildly. When we followed the Holy Spirit’s prompting to we got on the path to real transformation.

Yield: 12
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Additional Cooling Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour 25 minutes

This recipe is brimming with bright strawberry flavor, that's because these low carb strawberry donuts feature fresh strawberries in the donut batter and in the homemade sugar-free jam that is drizzled on top of the donuts, plus a strawberry icing. It's a strawberry lover's dream of a donut.


Keto Strawberry Donuts

Keto Strawberry Icing

Keto Strawberry Jam Sauce

  • 3/4 cup of fresh strawberries washed, hulled and cut into small pieces.
  • 1/4 of granulated sugar substitute 
  • 2/3 cup of water
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of unflavored gelatin powder


Keto Strawberry Donuts

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease well two 6 cavity donut pans.
  3. Melt 1/4 cup unsalted butter melted and set aside.
  4. In a large mixing bowl combine the almond flour, coconut flour, sugar substitute, baking powder, and salt until well combined.
  5. To the dry ingredients add the sour cream, melted butter, vanilla extract and the 3 eggs one at a time.
  6. Mix the batter using an electric mixer until fully incorporated. 
  7. Fold in the chopped strawberries.
  8. Pipe the batter into the two prepared donut pans. I added the batter to a large zip lock bag that I cut the tip of and then piped the batter into the donut pan cavities. 
  9. I lightly tapped the batter into the donut pans using my fingers.
  10. Note that you will be filling the donut pans just to the rim because these donuts do not rise much.
  11. Bake donuts for minutes for 25-30 minutes until donuts are fully cooked and you can insert a toothpick and it comes out clean.
  12. Allow the Keto Donuts to fully cool at room temperature before taking them out of the mold.
  13. Once the donuts are removed from the donut mold, place them on a baking rack and proceed to make the icing and strawberry jam sauce.

Keto Strawberry Icing

    1. Melt the butter and add to a medium-sized bowl.
    2. To the bowl the confectioners, sugar substitute, strawberry extract, and sea salt.
    3. Mix well and then add the hot water. Start with 3 tablespoons and add the additional tablespoon if the consistency is too thick.
    4. Quickly dip the donuts into the icing and set them on a baking rack to dry. The donuts will form a thin frosted shell on the surface.

Keto Strawberry Jam Sauce

  1. In a small saucepan add all the ingredients including the gelatin powder and cook all the ingredients over medium heat.
  2. Stir the strawberry sauce constantly, bring to a simmer and cook for 4-5 minutes. Allow the sauce to cool at room temperature.
  3. Once the donuts have been iced you can drizzle a small amount of jam over the top of the donuts.
  4. You will have leftover strawberry jam sauce since you are only adding about a tablespoon of sauce to each donut.
  5. This sauce can be stored for up to 5 days in the refrigerator in a small glass jar.

Store Your Donuts

    1. Once the donuts icing has set store them in the refrigerator in a sealed container for up to 5 days. You can place the donuts on top of each other since the icing hardens. You can also freeze your donuts by placing them in a freezer-proof container for up to 3 weeks. I do not recommend you freeze the donuts with the strawberry jam sauce on top.
    2. Allow your donuts to come to room temperature for the best flavor.
